You focus your psychic healing abilities on his, reading his injuries in a fraction of a second....and your own heart skips a beat.Ash is dead.Despite the sadness welling up in your chest you bark out “Everyone get close!” as your allies close in you prepare to teleport all of you, including Ash far out into the desert, whilst covering your tracks against anyone tracing your psychic power use. The Rainyas quickly recombine to make carrying them easier.The world shifts around you and you are far out in the deserts, you can just see the Hive in the distance.[PE 10/48][+2XP, Forged by Battle]“Is everyone ok?” asks Kaelyn “Rainya?”“I’m fine” says the lone Rainya“Lirael?” asks Kaelyn“No injuries” pipes up Lirael“Shee?” asks Kaelyn, when you don’t answer she asks again “Shee?”“Ash is dead” you say hollowly, holding his limp body in your arms “he’s...dead.” You try to ignore the burning feeling in your hand as tears well up in your eyes.“Oh Shee” says Rainya, hugging you “I’m so sorry.”“He’ll be back soon though” says Lirael, hugging you too.
“Shee you’re bleeding” says Kaelyn in a concerned tone “your hand.”“It’s nothing” you say “it just hurts a bit, anyway, we need to be moving, they could still find us.”Kaelyn takes hold of your hand “Shee you’ve got bits of metal in you ha-AAAAAAAAAAAAH!” Kaelyn screams as she pulls a sliver of metal from your hand with two fingers, tossing it away.“Shit, fuck, fuck, shit, fucking shit tits, fuck!” says Kaelyn eloquently as she shakes her fingers “Shee are you alright?”“I’m ok” you say “what the hell was that?” Lirael and Rainya give Kaelyn identical shocked looks.“Antinite” says Kaelyn “anti-magic metal, very effective against magical creatures, including vampires.”No, no she can’t no, nononono.“No!” you scream, hugging Ashs body to you “No, dammit he’s going to come back, no I don’t believe you, Ash, Aaaash!” Tears run down your face as you hold his body close to you.“Shee, Shee we need to move” says Kaelyn “We can mourn later, but right now, we need to leave.”Your response?>Ash, please come back...(exclusive, take no action)>I’m bringing him back! (which Aspect?)>I guess we should go, yeah....>Other (what?)
>>38194743>I guess we should go, yeah....Take the corpse, give him a nice grave
>>38194743>I guess we should go, yeah....
>>38194743>I’m bringing him back! (which Aspect?)>Imposibility
>>38194743>Ash, please come back...(exclusive, take no action)
>>38194743>I’m bringing him back! (Impossibility)Time to fuck reality again.
>>38194743>I’m bringing him back! (Impossibility)
>>38194743>I guess we should go, yeah....I owe it to myself to at least try.>>38194763>Take the corpse, give him a nice graveWe should do that, after removing the metal.
>>38194743>I’m bringing him back! (Impossibility)Kinda hope we fail a little, since it would make things a lot simpler, but I don't think it'd be in-character for Shee to not try after that display when she knows she can cause impossible thing.
>>38194743>I'm bringing him back! (Impossibility)
>>38194813I'm somewhat leery of using Imposibility here, we should at least remove the metal before attempting it.Anti-Magic stuff will probably make it impossible to use Imposibility to fix him.
>>38194743>I’m bringing him back! Imposibility
>>38194844>>38194841>>38194833You guys do realise we had a normal IP/vote relation before you posted?
>>38194743If we leave, we need to bring his body with us so we can remove the antinite and bring him back
>>38194842Yeah, this is probably one of the situations where we want to use Family instead since Impossibility gets fucked extra hard by anti-magic.
>>38194842That's a good point.>>38194743>>38194813Changing my vote to:>Remove anti-magic metal from Ash's body>I’m bringing him back! (Impossibility)
>>38194743Bring back (umpos)
>>38194743>>38194777Changing to>I guess we should go, yeah....Take the body to the waystation
>>38194743>>I’m bringing him back! (which Aspect?)Impossibility
>>38194842anti magic makes it even more impossible, which is good, no?What kind of story gets turned around by saying "it's almost certainty but it might just work"?
>>38194743>I’m bringing him back! (impossibility)I really like this idea.
>>38194897No, our Imposibility is weak to anti-magic stuff, thats the one thing we can't cheat.I'm glad if it fails, make no mistake. But I felt I should at least point it out to those that actually want him back.
>>38194926Anon, if you samefag a OP post, you should realise its immediatly obvious when your vote doesn't raise the IP count.
>>38194743>I guess we should go, yeah....>Take the corpse, give him a nice grave
>>38194950It's literally my only vote on that issue. To be fair I don't vote too often, usually just make an offhand comment here and there, like this one >>38194663
>>38194743In light of the anti magic point I would like to change >>38194844 to Family.
>>38194991Family can't bring people back.Really only Corruption would have been the other thing that could.And honestly I'm not sure I want to see that.
>>38194950Alternatively, he posted before voting as one of the non-vote posts.>>38194957Take the corpse, yes, but why would we give him a grave? We just need to dig out the antinite and we can then use Impossibility.
Ok, vote is tangled especially with write-ins to remove antinite or not.So I'm calling Final Destination in 5 minutes, sorry to slow things down but currently I'm seeing more votes than IPsIt will be simple yes/no vote regarding bringing him back, removing antinite and which aspect to use.If removing antinite, then it is assumed you will not be doing that here, but instead taking him back to the waystation.Each Aspect has potential flaws if it works in bringing him back.
>>38195022Because I don't want to bring him back?I find it cheap from a narrative point of view, since losing someone dear to her is a great opportunity and far better than trivializing character death.That being said, I understand people voting to make the attempt, since its something Shee could try if the thought comes to her.And in case he can be brought back, its better to bury im in our realm and then have Shee weep at his grave and him rising then. From a "how cool it is" point of view.
I doubt any of them will bring back the real Ash. They'll all probably change him in some way.
>>38195064I don't see it as particularly tangled, but if you want to give people a chance to revote after realising the anitinite thing, I'm fine with that.>>38195110Thats pretty much guaranteed.
>>38195064Which of these leads to him being devampirised? I imagine impossibility might, if it was antivampirite that was killing him, or perhaps corruption.
>>38195010Aspects are pretty open-ended in what they can do, so it might be able to, but Family is weaker than Impossibility right now. Though it might be more relevant, I'm not sure if relevance gives bonuses or if it's just a Y/N as to whether it can be used at all with only Aspect level being taken into consideration.
>>38195125Ironically, before a few threads ago, Corruption could have done it.
>>38195127I will be so fair to remind people Ashley is not affected by Family Aspect right now, so while seemingly appropriate, its the one least likely to work.
FD vote, 5 minute timer from now.Post only numbers, nothing elseDo not quote this postNo write-insNo greentext.Not following these rules will result in your vote being discardedOptionsTry to Bring Ash back1 - Yes2 - NoRemove Antinite3 - Yes4 - NoAspect Used5 - Impossibility6 - Corruption7 - Family
>>38195110Rather than bringing him back, I'm hoping impossibility circumvents the anti-magic effect on ressurection. I doubt it will actually.I still want Shee to try. If she fails, she fails (Can we then go Punisher or something on those responsible?)>>38194910>>38194858Also I have no idea why the IP account didn't increase, considering that was my first post in this new thread.
>>38195165>circumvents the anti-magic effectOur Imposibility Aspect is specifically weak to anti-magic stuff. Whatever plan you go with, hoping on it doing anything to work against the antinite is doomed to failure.
>>38195177>>38195186why bother taking the stuff out if you want to let him go? Salvage for future use?
>>38195193redo without the link please anon
>>38195222No, its for the people that do want him back, I don't want to sabotage their chances.I do think Corruption and removing antinite has the best chances.
>>38195222No, that makes sense. He might ressurect if there's nothing suppressing that power.
>>38195241>>38195247I see, cheers
>>38195241Corruption is a little over half Impossibility's strength, though. Even if Corruption would normally be a lot better for this than Impossibility (which is debatable, as a magical creature resurrecting magically after being slain by anti-magic is so many levels of impossible), it probably won't exceed Impossibility.
>>38195282No, but Imposibility is bad against stuff done by antimagic.If the antinite gets removed, using Corruption to force the body to be what Shee wants (alive), seems like the best option, since having been slain with anti-magic might make Imposibility still less effective.So supporting the natural rising ability, especially since Shee is sort-of vampire now too, seems like our best shot to me.
>>381951771 - 62 - 43 - 104 - 05 - 46 - 47 - 2I guess we're using Corruption *and* Impossibility.
What does everyone see ash as to Shee?I kinda see him as a younger brother, who is very naive and tends to fumble at the worst times. But he largely means well despite screwing up.
>>38195327I think doing it in Shees own Realm, would have made it work better.But we might be on a time limit.
>>38195346A good friend. He meant a lot to her when she was younger. They're not as close now but there's still a fondness.
>>38195346Very close friends whose different paths in life made them drift apart, honestly.He is still a good friend, but not really more than that. Three years, especially 14-17, are a long time.
>>38195346The next love interest once Rainya tragically diesI wish
>>38195346If we have to put it in terms of family relations instead of just saying "really good friend", I'd have to say that he's closer to a cousin who lives in the same area than a brother.
>>38195372Seriously, considering the topic, sans the samefagging, this whole thing was surprisingly civil, don't be a faggot now.
>>38195343Really? I count five 5'sStill, I could be wrong, I'll give it a few minutes for anons to check my count before posting the roll
>>38195346I personally see him as any of the following without strong preference for any: an old friend, a bro or a love interest.
>>38195387Its 5 fives.>>38195275>>38195233>>38195218>>38195212>>38195187
>>38195386I'm not being serious.Dev is a much better husbandoI just don't like Rainya. I don't spite vote or anything though.
One of those has a quote, meaning it's invalid.
>>38195432Ah, yeah, you're right..>>38195203Not sure about this one, but as tie-break it works, I suppose.
>>38195432>>38195416what about >>38195203it does satisfy the criteria
>>38195458It's not formatted in the same way we all collectively decided on a subconscious level, though.
>>38195483Yeah, it fits definitions more than it fits convention.
>>38195431That's cool, I want Kae but me and Kae might be alone in seeking that.
>>38195431>best girl didn't winI still don't get it.
>>38195518You're not alone.
>>38195507Eh, it's good enough as a tie-breaker, at least.I'd rather do both at once because I have no self-control and want to see what happens, but I'd prefer Impossibility alone to Corruption alone.
Impossibility it is then, either its a tie, in which case I chose Impossibility, or it won.Please roll 1d20+5

Hopefully if this fails, it only fails. I'd hate to fuck up his afterlife or something.
>>38195589>>38195591>>38195599>not even above 20I'm sorry guys. I really am.Ashley. You might have been a obnoxious faggot 90% of the time, but for that one time being a alright guy, we will avenge you.>>38195613I don't think we can expect raising the dead with anything less than DC20, I expect more, honestly.
>>38195612>>38195518We can make it happen still
Who else is expecting Baalzamon to start cackling like crazy?
>>38195613I half expect it to have been 25pity, it could have been moment of Awesome. But I guess Sad works too.
>>38195650THE FIVE WILL BECOME THE FOUR IF THAT FUCKER SO MUCH AS GIGGLES
>>38195636Oh, fuck off, he wasn't bad at all. Quinn is the obnoxious faggot.
>>38195665You mean three, unless you plan to let Mirror get away with this shit.
Are we at least going to use this as an excuse to kill the shit out of that bastard Mirror Avatar? Fuck that guy. Girl. Whatever. It's probably both anyway. Fucking mirror.
>>38195650Pretty all of the four will be very, very interested in assisting Shee toget revenge. For a price.
>>38195680When we kill the Mirror's Avatar, it should please pretty much all of the Four, giving us more favour.When are we getting revenge?
>>38195680I'd like to begin a crusade against the Mirror's followers.Or at least against his avatars.
>>38195613I guess its finally time for Shee to have that breakdown.And to think we spent the afternoon preparing for sexy time..Damn you plot!!
>>38195203>>38195458Through the powers of autism and literalism I have flouted you all! Hyuck hyuck hyuck. The pain of being disconnected from the hivemind, it stings>>38195680I hope so. We've been too merciful for my taste (With the exception of that mirror kid. That was good)
>>38195715I really want to deal with the shadow vamp thing first so that we don't get slammed between Reaper and Mirror avatar at the same time. That would suck major balls.
>>38195740>(With the exception of that mirror kid. That was good)That wasn't even us. We were going to just sit there content to do nothing, and then Rainya shot him in the head.
>>38195742Obviously we need to do the shadow vamp thing first.Haha, the irony of Shee becoming a vampire shortly after Ash dies, this keeps getting better.
>>38195728>>38195769Aka Rainya ruined everything
>>38195775She isn't becoming a vampire, she's becoming a progenitor. Close enough.
>>38195788Nah, Rainya will make everything better tonight.Shee needs comforting now.
>>38195788Tom needed to die.
>>38195809>suddenly ninjas out of Rainya's pussies
>>38195788Well he did just kill her a couple times. It's understandable.
So, how are we going to bury Ashley?Would it be inappropriate to cremate him?>>38195769We explicitly stood there because we were content to let Rainya decide, actually. We might have shot him ourselves otherwise.
“I’m going to bring Ash back” you whisper “He’s not dead, I refuse to let him be dead, I want him to not be dead.”“Shee are you crazy?” asks Kaelyn “that’s a spell so powerful even Elder fae need days of preparation before trying it.”“I am impossibility!” you scream “I Am That Which Should Be! I can do this and I will!”“Alright, alright!” says Kaelyn, taking you by the shoulders “but not here alright, besides, we need to get that stuff out of him”“Yes” you say, nodding “yes, you’re right” and with a thought you are back in the Waystation, on the stairs up to your Realm, your allies with you.You run up the stairs, Ash held in your tentacles.“Shee that’s not a good idea!” says Kaelyn running up after you, to Rainya she says “grab a plate from the kitchen would you, and a medical kit, and lots of tweezers.”To Lirael she says “can you help Rainya please.” They both accede to her requests.“Why not here?” you ask Kaelyn, bursting into your realm and creating a table for Ash, along with a rack of surgical tools.“Because” says Kaelyn, taking one of the tools and touching it to the slivers in your hand, the tool...blurs when it touches the shards of metal still burning your hand. When Kaelyn draws the tool back, the tip is just...gone.“Your realm is magical” says Kaelyn “normally that’s a good thing, but here...”“Oh” you say “I didn’t, I wasn’t, I don’t know how to, Kaelyn please, help me.”“Of course I will” says Kaelyn, as Rainya and Lirael return with the supplies. One of Rainya takes Lirael elsewhere as the rest of you work on Ash, with him lying face down you work as fast as you can, removing all of the bloody slivers of metal you can from him and dropping them onto the plate. To get at some of them you need to cut into his flesh, by the end of it, Ash’s back is a bloody ruin, many of the slivers went into his heart.
I'm not giving up hope until I see an OP post confirming it was >19better to see the world as it should be!
>>38195866No, we wanted to interrogate him instead of killing him, but Rainya shot him before Shee finished the first question.
Once you are satisfied you reach down inside yourself and focus on the part of you that break boundaries, that defies limitations, that accomplishes the impossible. You place your hands on Ash and combine your aspect with your healing powers.“Live” you whisper to Ash “live..”For a long time, nothing happens, then Ash twitches and rises from the table, sitting up “Ash!” you yell in joy, hugging him, “Ash you’re back!” He doesn’t respond.“Ash, Ash say something” you say to his blank face “Ash..?”“Kaelyn what’s going on?” asks Rainya.“Ash” you say, shaking him a little “Ash speak to me, please?”Ash says nothing“Shee” says Kaelyn quietly “Use your powers, try to contact Ash’s mind.”Of course, maybe its damaged from being dead for so long, you can use your telepathic abilities to fix that!You focus and your mind reaches out to Ash and finds...nothing. No mind, not even an empty one, just, nothing.“Ash” you say, not quite ready to believe it “Ash, please, say something...Ash...please..?”---Several hours later and many attempts to restore Ash’s mind, you’re curled up in a ball on the beach, still crying, Rainya, Lirael and Kaelyn are all around you, hugging or stroking you as you cry. Your hand still burns, the slivers still in there, you don’t care.Nearby, Ashes body is still sat up on the table you created, not speaking, not reacting, doing nothing except...living, somehow.Actions>I’m not done crying yet>I guess I should...put Ash back to sleep>Ask the Five for help (which?)>Other (what?)
>>38195898No, I very much remember a lot of us voted to ask him, but let the decision be Rainyas.>>38195905>I guess I should...put Ash back to sleep
>>38195898I wanted to kill him afterwards.
>>38195905>I’m not done crying yet
>>38195905>I guess I should...put Ash back to sleepFuck, he deserves better than this. Thats just not okay.
>>38195905>Ask the Five for help (all of the four)Fuuuuuuuuck.
>>38195905>I guess I should...put Ash back to sleep
>>38195905>Ask the Five for help (which?)King.
>>38195905>I guess I should...put Ash back to sleepThe last thing we need is to owe yet another major favor to one of the five before we've even paid for the one we got already.
>>38195905>Ask the Five for help Mumor we could try to pull him back with family.
>>38195905>I guess I should...put Ash back to sleepPut him back, destroy the body, its better for everyone.
>>38195905>Ask the Five for help (King)I feel like pic related right now.
>>38196013Fuck you're an idiot.What do we gain and what do we lose by doing this?We gain nothing. Nothing except a vamp that is stupid and can't keep his fangs to himself.What do we lose? We have to do yet another task for one of the Four, the Goddess knows what they want us to do.
>>38195905>>I’m not done crying yet
>>38196067Anon, not now.I gladly shitpost about Ashley all day, but its really not appropriate now.
>>38195905>Grow some kind of life-support tree thing. We can still fix him. It'll just... be a while. All we need to do is put him in a pod that grows blood and some kind of nutrient stuff and feeds it to him. I mostly just want to see what happens when Shee starts trying to do crazy bullshit.
>>38196067What a fucking cunt.
>>38196102We're in a war. A war with Reunited and their followers. The best thing we can do is to keep the body alive and imprint a fanatical devotion to us in it. Other than that, we don't need him.
>>38196100That sounds really cool. That could be his grave!>>38196053Changing to this. Probably too late now though anyway.
>>38196121>That could be his grave!We probably get to design his grave anyway.
>>38196120You're not really disproving the accusation of you being a cunt. Friends aren't tools, they don't *have* to be useful for you to want to save them.
>>38196067I agree we should not seek help and just deal with it, but it's not like the option is even winning. There's no need to be mad.
I hope we use the infernal focus rifle Ash got us to kill the Mirror person. Use Ego Humbling Strike and crank the damage so high that they vaporize.
>>38196137In real life? That's completely right.But this is a game of survival. We can't be weighed down, we can't have weak points. And Ashley, a man who -presumably- went against our advice and caused this to himself, and became emotionally invested in a vampire that was a sadistic prick that wanted to rape us with all his friends. Do we need him? No. Is he a liability is we fix him? Yes. Is he worth it? I highly doubt it.
We should do something with those shards. They could be really useful.
>>38196230In before mirror dude has some special ability that automatically reflects one attack back on its opponent.
>>38196247Nah. You're just a cunt.
>>38196268Use our new jaggie thing that gives us godmode against one attack. It blocked Reaper's scythe and that thing was way more powerful than anything we can do.
>>38196247That guy was right. You're really a cunt.>>38196255I second this motion. Those are bound to come in handy, and it would be nice if we could seize stockpile of them when we raid those faggots in retaliation.
>>38196247>a man who -presumably- went against our advice and caused this to himselfI honestly don't think this has anything to do with the Crimsonthorns.Far more likely Mirrors Avatar satisfied his patrons hateboner for us here.
Once the tears stop flowing you get unsteadily to your feet and wander over to Ash.“Shee you don’t have to do that” says Kaelyn, Rainya catches on too “Shee don’t” she says “We can do this.”“No” you say “no, I should do this, I did this, its my responsibility.”You walk up to A- up to the body, sat on the table, still living somehow.“Ashley Kellens” you say, your voice a hoarse whisper “I’m sorry, if I had been a better friend, if I had kept you out of this somehow I...I’m sorry Ash...goodbye.”You release the hold your powers have on Ashley and he falls backwards, you catch him before he hits the table, laying him down gently, and closing his eyes.Your friends come up beside you and hug you as you stare at your friends body, dead because some unknown person wanted to use him against you.“Do you want to bury him here?” asks Rainya quietly.Lirael is silent, Kaelyn says “Not to sound cruel but shouldn’t he go back to his family, I mean if we bury him here, there will be a missing person investigation won’t there?”Your response>I’m burying him here>I’ll take his body back to his folks>Whoever did this will pay, this I swear (this pleases the Ichor in the Depths)>Other (what?)
>>38196280Heh, that would be a cool scene. Constantly negating each other's attacks until attrition finally sets in.
>>38196296>I’m burying him here>Whoever did this will pay, this I swear (this pleases the Ichor in the Depths)
>>38196296>I'll take his body back to his folks.>Whoever did this will pay, this I swear.
>>38196296>I’ll get his body back to his folksSomehow get it back>Whoever did this will pay, this I swear (this pleases the Ichor in the Depths)
>>38196247In game he might be the best way to find out what happened and that could be useful.
>>38196296>Whoever did this will pay, this I swear (this pleases the Ichor in the Depths)>Other (Send his body back to his parents, maybe ask Yonsul)
>>38196333I was thinking that too, but we don't want people to track Yonsul back to us, and I bet the evil vampire wants to track how his parents got the body back
>>38196296>Whoever did this will pay, this I swear (this pleases the Ichor in the Depths)>(Send his body back to his parents, maybe ask Yonsul)They might be assholes, but we have no indication they are that bad they don't deserve to know their kid died.
>>38196296>I’ll take his body back to his folksHow though? This is going to look suspicious. Maybe we should just put him in his apartment and make an anonymous call to the cops?>Whoever did this will pay, this I swear (this pleases the Ichor in the Depths)
>>38196296>Whoever did this will pay, this I swear (this pleases the Ichor in the Depths)>We worry about his body later
>>38196345Doesn't need to be Yonsul herself who rbings him back, but she can help us make sure he is "found".
>>38196296>Whoever did this will pay, this I swear>I'm burying him here (Fed blood by a blood tree) ala >>38196100.
>>38196296>Whoever did this will pay, this I swear (this pleases the Ichor in the Depths)>I’ll take his body back to his folks
>>38196255Make a blade edge for the warmech?>>38196294>Far more likely Mirrors Avatar satisfied his patrons hateboner for us here.Too bad they've given us (me, at least) a hateboner for the Mirror and this Avatar in particular. Feud eternally.
If the Five are only allowed one avatar each, why kill this bitch?Lets capture her and psychically lobotomize her. And maybe physically do it too.Fuck mirror out of an avatar and get us our own personal mage slave. We could probably even steal a few spells or mirror abilities from her by having her hit us with min-power gifts/spells and using absorb spell to take any good ones.
>>38196331As far as it's been implied, Ashley doens't have any mind, that means zero memories. So I don't see how he could help us in any way. It'd be nice if we had some advanced technique to mind-heal, or something, but we just don't have that. Like I said before, it'd be most useful to keep him as a puppet.
>>38196296>I’ll get his body back to his folksSomehow.>>Whoever did this will pay, this I swear (this pleases the Ichor in the Depths)
>>38196393Horrifying gaze her for a day or two?
>>38196389>Make a blade edge for the warmech?Thats actually a pretty good idea.I wonder if we could make a antinite alloy.>>38196393>Lets capture her and psychically lobotomize her. And maybe physically do it too.That would probably intensly creep out our allys, not a bad idea, just saying.
>>38196435I'm scared to use any eye-based power on a Mirror avatar.
>>38196389>Make a blade edge for the warmech?I was thinking make it into bullets for our rifle and using them to kill the Mirror bitch.>>38196398He meant the hypothetical circumstance where it had worked as we wanted it to.
>>38196398We have ways round that but they cost.
>>38196451Do you mean asking the Four for assistance?
>>38196437>That would probably intensly creep out our allys, not a bad idea, just saying.Just another day on the gauntlet of fellowship.We could almost certainly get them somewhat OK with it if we explained that it's in an attempt to delay Mirror sending more avatars after us.
>>38196393(This would be greatly pleasing to Baalzamon.)probably
>>38196393I think that Gods can withdraw Avatarhood from people. Not to mention that subjugating her like that is also a loss condition for the contest.
Ok, Willpower roll to shape GiftDC20
>>38196393I'm so in favour of this. Make them into a mewling slave. Laugh at mirror. Talk about how pathetic mirror is. Tell him that for every loved one of ours he takes, we will take something of his Let us battle Mirror until there is no one left alive. Then we can gloat at how he was so foolish as to never realise that we were following his tenants all along
The next thing we need to do is send out Kae and Lirael to get Dev from work.Until we devised a way to shiled our allies from mental influence, no one goes alone.

Just throwing it out there, but the Five can hear our thoughts. At least Baalzamon can, since he commented on a couple things Shee was thinking about that she never said aloud.Mirror's probably sitting there smug as fuck gloating to himself about how much this hurt Shee.
>>38196526Forgot to post the modifier so using all rollsIt passed
>>38196460I'm sure someanon could find another but that's one way.
>>38196498Too fucked up and cruel. I'd rather not strip Shee's humanity just for some revenge.
>>38196560>I'd rather not strip Shee's humanityYou are roughly 23 threads too late for that.
>>38196577You know what he meant when he said humanity.
>>38196558I favor finding whoever did this and making them fix it (or killing them)
I don't think we should lobotomise them. If what one anon said earlier is true -and I'll ask Pally to confirm- in regards to each of the Five only being able to have one Avatar, then we should just use Dominate on the one that attacked us and took Ash away from us. We'll subvert them to our will and keep them tied to us, fanatically devoted.
Your oath of vengeance on the one that took your family member from pleases the Ichor in the Depths, she offers 1 of 4 GiftsBlood Control – You gain Blood Control 3 and Poison the MindStrength of the Mothers Love – You gain Strength of the Mothers Love 3Wishcrafting – You gain Wishcrafting 4Form of the Deep MotherYou can spend Psychic Energy to transform into a massive sea monster, increasing your strength and durability. This form can breathe air, but is more powerful in the sea. Higher levels include increasing its strength, size and durability.Whilst in this form the costs of many of the Ichors gifts are reduced.10 minutes to discuss, then a vote
>>38196677I like wish 4
We fucked up when we did not evac. I voted to fight but should have voted evac.I thought we could do a quick check on him there, but due to fight voting never really had a chance.Maybe apporting him out right away was the right choice in the end.
>>38196677I want Form of the Deep Mother, I want it so bad,
>>38196677>Blood Control 3 and Poison the MindSounds really good
>>38196677What exactly do these Gifts do for us, again?
>>38196701Have ever used wishcraft?
>>38196677How much PE is FotDM?
>>38196713We'd never use it just like we never use RoS because it's about as subtle as turning into a giant sea monster. Also it makes us a huge target.>>38196740No, because rank 1 is kinda bad. It gets a lot better at 2+
>>38196677Poison the Mind is still not very good, but BloodControl for Infectious form 'might' be worth it.I will never be a fan of SoML, and it would be sort of cruel irony to take it now.Wishcrafting is okay, but we never use it, and I don't think we will use it more now.Form of Deep Mother makes me hope for future Imposibility stuff where we merge it with Ruler of Shadows, for maximum "Eldritch Thing that breaks the Mind".
>>38196677either new giant monster for or blood control plus poison the mindpoison the mind will let us fuck up people in semi permanent ways, i believe right now it would last more than a week
I'm not particularly fond of the lack of synergy that comes with having two battle forms. That said the other options are only upgrades to what we could already buy. Anyone have any good arguments for one or the other besides coolness factor?
>>3819674412 at base level, rises as you level it up
>>38196773>Impossibility + Ruler of Shadows = Ruler of the Void>Family + Form of the Deep Mother = ???>Corruption + [some crazy demonic form King surely will offer at 10+] = ????
>>38196730Blood Control 2 adds the following ability:Corrosive Blood Spray: Whenever you are injured with a non-energy-based melee attack your blood sprays your attacker. You can affect anyone who attacks you in melee and deals 1 or more hip points of damage to you with Corrosive Blood. This lowers the cost of increasing the damage of Corrosive Blood to 2 psychic points per 1d6 additional points of damage.Blood Control 3 adds the following ability:Toxin Resistance: Your unusual blood makes you more resistant to poisons and diseases. You add your Favour of Ichor in the Depths rating to any Constitution check to resist poisons or disease.Blood Control Additional PowersPoison the Mind: You can inflict derangements and insanities on those you damage using Corrosive Blood. This costs 5 psychic energy and you do not choose the specific mental disorder the target suffers from but you can pick the general theme (i.e. addiction, hallucinations, phobia, memory loss etc). The target gets a Willpower roll to resist and the effect lasts for a maximum of 1 day per point of Willpower you have.Requires: Blood Control 1Strength of the Mothers LoveYou gain strength from the proximity of those you care deeply about. These can be close friends, family you care about, or anyone you want to help and/or protect strongly enough.The bonuses are limited by the number of those you care about and the number of times you have selected this talent. To be counted as in proximity you must be able to perceive them (typically within 3 metres plus 1 metre per +1 you have to perception checks based on sight or sound) or in your line of sight. All bonuses are morale bonuses.At Strength of the Mothers Love 1: As long as you have one or more of those listed below nearby you gain: a +2 bonus to Will checks to resist any mind-affecting powers or abilities; and a +1 bonus on all skill rolls and ability checks.
>>38196677>Form of the Deep MotherI'll be choosing for this for Rainya. It'd also be useful in our dream realm or our world, and I like transformation powers.>>38196729It's really, really not.>>38196730You know those pastebins in the OP? Read them.>>38196740Nope.>>38196765Still not very good to me.>>38196773>merge it with Ruler of Shadows, for maximum "Eldritch Thing that breaks the Mind".Yes. I want it.>>38196779Too bad that that only works if they drink our blood and if they fail their saving throw.
>>38196807At Strength of the Mothers Love 3: As long as you have three or more of those listed below nearby you gain: a +3 bonus to all defences and to Will checks to resist any mind-affecting powers or abilities; +2 to strength, fellowship and constitution; and a +3 bonus on all skill rolls and ability checks.At Wishcrafting 2 you can nominate a single psychic power or gift you posses. All willpower rolls when using that Gift or power benefit from a +5 bonus when being used to grant wishes. You can make a Fellowship check against any creature that can see, hear and understand you; if successful the targeted creature must make a wish immediately for something they want. This is a telepathy effect. You can choose to grant this wish or not.At Wishcrafting 3 you can nominate a further 2 powers or gifts (3 total) to gain the bonus from Wishcrafting 2, and the bonus rises to +10. At Wishcrafting 4 you can nominate a further power or gift (4 total) to gain the bonus from Wishcrafting 2, and the bonus rises to +15. You can twist wishes – when granting wishes you no longer have to thematically follow the wish to use Wishcrafting, only the wording of the wish. The QM is the final arbiter on what constitutes following the wording of the wish, but the whole point of this ability is to allow the players to subvert the intent of the wish, twisting it to their own ends.
>>38196783We don't have SoML yet, so there is that.FotDM has the advantage over Ruler of Shadow that it isn't dangerous to our allies.Titanic Form is the better warform 90% of the time though.
>>38196677Ask mum to give Ash back his mine instead? I'm not seeing a must have.
The only thing we should ask the King for in relation to Ash is maybe a goodbye message, but he might not take well being treated as infernal secretary. I guess we'll have opportunity to raise the topic at some point in future, maybe post-ascension.
>>38196836I don't think all people go to Hell.Possibly all vampires to to Baalzamon, actually.
Poison the Mind would be fun to use on Mirror Dude. Capture him and make him insane by force-feeding him our blood.Yup.
>>38196825Wishcrafting would be good if we had Psychic Infection, since it would reduce the penalty to -5, and its something that can be easily wished for.
5 minute vote>Blood Cntrol>Strength of the Mothers Love>Wishcrafting>Form of the Deep Mother
>>38196885>Form of the Deep Mother
>>38196870Wouldn't it be dangerous for Lirael, though? She feeds on our blood, so it could be bad for her.
>>38196898Works only with corrosive blood.
>>38196885>>>Form of the Deep Mother>>38196898It only works on corrosive blood, which we wouldn't feed to Lirael anyway, and it's an active power. That being said, you still shouldn't vote for it, because it's pretty awful.
>>38196898 we chose to activate this stuff, its not always on
>>38196885>Form of the Deep MotherI assume we can't get Wishcrafting now and pick the psychic power later?
>>38196885Strength of the Mothers Love
>>38196926Its not worth voting for Poison the Mind, but saving those 10XP to get Infectious Form could be worth it.In theory, anyway.

>>38196993Duck hunting season, I mean form got the last word in.
“Whoever did this” you snarl “no matter who, or what, no matter what I have to do, I will hurt them, I will make them pay, this I swear.”“Shee don’t you think it’s a bit early to-” says Kaelyn“I swear it in the name of the Five” you say grimly “They will pay!”You can feel a new shape growing within you, one you can call upon when needed.[Form of the Deep Mother gained]“Alright, alright” says Rainya “Ok, but not now, ok Shee?”“No” you say, calming down, realising that storm clouds have begun to gather overhead you concentrate, and they thin out, until the sky is a clear blue again.“As for...as for Ash” you say quietly “I’ll deliver his body to his parents, in a bit, I just want a moment to be alone for now.”“Of course” says Rainya quietly “We’ll get dinner started, won’t we, c’mon Lirael, Kae. let’s go.”The three of them leave and you’re left alone with Ashs body. You wonder where it all went wrong. Should have pushed him away more, so that he was never involved at all?Should you have taken him up on his offer to hunt the Gouger with you, perhaps training hin and teaching him would have kept him alive?You slump down on the sands, your mind running through all the what ifs, the choices you made, how they could have been different, how it could have been better.The light in your realm has gotten quite low before you notice, shouldn’t it be lighter in here?The shadowy black dragon drifting slowly down from the sky answers that question.“Baalzamon” you whisper, scrambling to your feet “What do you want?” you’re in no mood to deal with him right now, but your pain at losing Ash could do with a convenient target.“Want? Why nothing my dear” says Baalzamon, his massive claws doffing into the sand as he lands, his long body coiling around you until you’re in a small circle of his body, his head looking down on you.
“I simply came to chat” he says “about...how Kaelyn will be such a *good* servant to me.”“What are you talking about?” you say “Since when is Kaelyn your servant?”“Oh in about an hours time” says the Darkness, grinning down at you.“I don’t understand” you say.“Our bargain” he chortles “you kidnap one of the shadow vampires and they teach your friend the powers of the shadows.”“And I’m going to do that” you say “I have days left.”“Their shuttle leaves in an hour” says Baalzamon with a grin “They’re at the station right now, waiting, now you could attack a major shuttle port to capture one, but that would be quite a risk wouldn’t it?”“You didn’t mention this!” you snap at him “this would have been really useful to know!”“You play your games” says Baalzamon with a grin “I play mine.”“Even if I don’t grab one of them” you say “Since when is Kaelyn yours?”“Since the bargain was about her” says Baalzamon, shaking his great head in amusement “She was what you bought, her freedom with our bargain, if you fail, then her freedom is what you lose.”“There could be other ways for Lirael to learn shadow powers” you say desperately.“Hmm, not the deal we struck” says Baalzamon, examining a claw “not the deal at all.”“Then I could go to one of the others” you say “Jagganatha, the Ichor in the Depths, The King of Hell!”“You’re free to do so” says Baalzamon in a casual tone “but you spurned them once, their prices may be higher now, or...we could renegotiate...”Your reaction>What do you want?>I guess I’m attacking a shuttle port, right now>I’m going to speak to one of the others of the Five>Fine, take Kaelyn, she’s been nothing but trouble>Other (what?)
>>38197270>I guess I’m attacking a shuttle port, right nowOh wow, Baalzamon, fuck you.And here were getting along so well.
>>38197270>>I guess I’m attacking a shuttle port, right now
>>38197270>What do you want?Make it quick
>>38197270>I guess I’m attacking a shuttle port, right nowI suggest we buy Shadow of the Dephts 3 for it, so we can do>At Shadow of the Depths 3 you can change your appearance to that of another person
>>38197270>I guess I’m attacking a shuttle port, right now
>>38197270The bargin that keeps fucking us over.
>>38197270>I guess I’m attacking a shuttle port, right nowHah, watch us get massive favour with Jagga now Baalzi.This is the exact wrong moment to push Shee if you wanted to bargain.
>>38197270>What do you want?If he doesn't answer promptly>I guess I'm attacking a shuttle port, right now
>I suggest we buy Shadow of the Dephts 3 for it, so we can doSupporting this.Shee is a master of tTeleportation. I bet we can totally kidnap a vampire from a major shuttle port.
>>38197356We deserve it for letting it get picked in the first place.
If we strike the shuttle port with some bombs or something, they'd have to cancel the flights.
>>38197398We don't need bombs, we get in their in disguise, and subtle apport the vampire out.
>>38197270>What do you want?>I guess I’m attacking a shuttle port, right nowHah, he never ceases to amuse me. Even if he is a dick, he is the most fun of all.
>>38197398>Apport plasma grenades into the engine
>>38197413>>38197371>>38197329You do realise he will stall to make it even harder for us?
>When Pally was saying "go get shadow vamps now, you won't regret it", he was actually saying that going would be a good idea. He wasn't saying that it would be bad to go then.>We all voted to keep fucking around
>>38197391AA gave us a decent out, at least.
>>38197445Can't he talk on the way?
>>38197476Does he want to?
>>38197488He will, if he wants an even better deal.
>>38197476We aren't going to ask. The vote is over and the option chosen is not that.
>>38197468People should really start to act on Pally subtle hints and nudges, but for some reason they never do
>>38197471Kind of. We'll still have to go through with making Lirael do things we otherwise wouldn't want her to.
>>38197527They assumed it was a subtle hit that going now would pulp us because we had around 20hp at the time.
>>38197513He will still offer that one if we fail to get the shadow vamps, since in theory we could still follow them, as long as the week isn't over.>>38197527Anon, if we would have gone then, we would have gotten fucked too.Following Pallys nudges, is not a guarantee of being a good thing.Quite the opposite.
>>38197468Pally stated that if we want to do Slice of Life plot will attack us instead.We did goof around too long. Again.>>38197391Can't do anything about it. We suddenly had a bunch of new voters.Despite him fucking us over with Quinn one time by twisting the deal.>>38197471Only if we pull this assault off.
ok, attack on a public shuttleport it is, writing.
>>38197536That's why I called it a decent out and not a good out.
>>38197553>Despite him fucking us over with Quinn one time by twisting the deal.That didn't happen at all.
>>38197553>Despite him fucking us over with Quinn one time by twisting the deal.The dreamworld deal? That wasn't twisted at all.
>>38197567Can you make it so we take the weird anti-vampire metal with us?
Can't we just infiltrate and hijack the shuttle?Would be nice if we could fly it into our realm somehow but that's out of the question I guess.
>>38197553Did he? That sucks. SoL is fun. Makes everything else worth it really, imo.
>>38197581Its anti-magic, and its just as bad for us as it is for them. Especially since we will want to teleport out of there.
>>38197586Artifice 2 gives touch-range technomancy if we wanted to go that route.
>>38197581We've got our locket.
>>38197586I dunno, but I'd like to do some neat Jagganatha tricks here.
It's been a few hours that Shee was sobbing. I think she'd have gotten a couple HP worth of regen in that time?Also, what's our PE at right now?
>>38197567I would still like a vote on purchasing Shadow of the Dephts 3, so we can take a different form for this.
>>38197574>>38197580It was expected by most anons that he would be the same person afterwards.So instead we had to make a choice on new personality or quirk. He still died cause we did not hide him however.>>38197591Yea, it is in the ask questions.
>>38197624Can we avoid excessive civilian casaulties though? I don't mind Shee Hyulk, but I'd rather not slaughter too many innocent people along the way, and considering *public* port this would probably be hard to avoid.
I want to remind everyone that at no point Baalzamons deal specified Lirael has to LEARN the shadow powers from the vampire.Only that we have to capture one, and Lirael has to learn the powers, he never said she has to learn them from the vampire, nor that we need to keep the vampire for any amount of time.
>>38197270>“Hmm, not the deal we struck” says Baalzamon, examining a claw “not the deal at all.”I hope we say the exact same thing to him when he gets pissy about us Voiding Lirael instead of letting her learn his shadow secrets.
>>38197678Sure. As long as we get to wreck shit, preferably vampire shit, I'm all for it. It will be a great opportunity for Shee to vent.
>>38197720We should probably tell someone we are going
>>38197685If we don't keep the vamp and have her actually learn from it, then we'd have to find another Shadowcraft master within 4 days.That'd be even harder than kidnapping one of these shadow dudes in an hour, and if we're already going to have to capture one of them for any amount of time, we may as well use him.
>>38197678Its best to do this as quietly as possible. Get in, find vamp, Subtle Apport him somewhere outside where Lirael and Kae wait for him.
>>38197739I'm just saying we should keep that in mind, we could for example read his mind with Psychic Surgery to get that info and teach Lirael ourselves after getting FoL.We don't NEED to keep him, if it comes to that.
>>38197591Here is the quote.>Question: It feels like Shee is running from crisis to crisis. Is this a reflection of the choices /tg/ makes or the planned feel for the quest? >Pally: Little of both. Quest players appear unlikely to seek out plot and so I bring the plot to them. If the players actively try to solve problems they can confront them on their own terms as it is they appear to be content to just react./tg/ likes slice of life, but in the grimdark of this world it seeks to strangle all life.
Possible plans of action so far:>Storm the place with wanton disregard for civilian lifeor>Shadow of the Depths upgrade, do...something. Be sneaky.or>Artifice 2 and do...something. Maybe break into the control center and ground all the ships or directly just fuck up the electronics in the shuttle.
>>38197797>do...somethingJust apport him out, its not that hard..
“Alright” you say, getting to your feet and walking towards your Realm entrance “I guess I better get ready to attack a public shuttleport, if nothing else this is going to be interesting.”Using your tentacles you scramble up the coils of Baalzamon and down the other side.“Are you sure you don’t want to discuss another bargain?” asks the Dragon of Darkness“You’d just draw things out and delay” you say “So there’s no point” you’re almost to the door.“But this one is simple” says Baalzamon “you just need to-”“Not interested” you say, closing the door behind you and heading down to explain the situation to your friends.---“So let me get this straight” says Dev “We need to infiltrate a shuttle port, where people going off world or coming here arrive, with all its security and fae magics and guards, grab a shadow-using vampire and take him alive, and get out again, without getting killed?”“That’s about right yes” you say.“What the hell” says Dev with a shrug “I’m in, what do you think, warmech or power armour?”“You can’t” says Kaelyn “don’t put everyone in danger again just for me!”Rainya rolls her eyes “Shee is going to do it” she tells Kaelyn “Her martyr complex is quite developed, guess I best go get my armour again.”“Can we steal a spaceship?” asks Lirael curiously.What is the plan?>I sneak up to a vampire and teleport him out>We go in guns blazing and grab a vampire>The customs guy says “anything to declare” and I say “I’m the Ruler of Shadows, start running!”>Other plan (what?)Who is going?>Alone>With (who?)Also, buy Shadow of the Depths 3? >Y/N
Reminder that these shadow vamps are fucking powerful and we needed Ruler of Shadows to stop the last one we met from beating our ass.

>>38197817>I sneak up to a vampire and teleport him out>Kae>YThe third one is hilarious though.>>38197821One of them was powerful, and he was apparently special among them.

>>38197817>I sneak up to a vampire and teleport him out>Alone>Y
>>38197887Everyone here has a martyr complex bigger than Quinn's asshole complex.
>>38197817>Hay Baalzy, make it quick, What's the other offer?>I sneak up to a vampire and teleport him out>AloneY
If Lirael were to gestalt with us, would that make our Dominate more powerful?Could we smack the shadow vamp with it and have him walk out of the place, then beat him unconscious and go?
>>38197906>Hay Baalzy, make it quick, What's the other offer?I really wanna know too.. But I am afraid its too late anonIt seems anons are bend on going in shooting and get everyone killed. Today is fight day
>>38197817>Sneak and teleport>Alone (Others wait nearby in case shit hits the fan)>YAttempting sublety is best. Guns blazing should be a plan B. We don't want the others coming because we don't want them identified, linked to us, or targeted. Impossibility should help us with teleporting the guy out, but it doesn't lock us into a particular action.
>>38197932Fuck Baalzamon apologists.
>>38197946Basically what I had in mind too.
>>38197817>Sneak and teleport>Alone (Others wait nearby)>Y
>>38197946I thought of taking Kae with us, if we don't take anyone with us, they should wait at whatever part of the desert we teleport to, so they can help us subdue him.
>>38197953I did not ever vote for Ballz, just so you know. But even seen in the light of everything that has happen, we have no excuse for not think things through or hearing him out.
>>38197922I think we'd be using her Telepathy modifier and access to mastery bonuses (not the number bonus, just the pseudo-feat benefit) backed by Shee's Willpower score and Corruption aspect with an additional +2 on top of that.So a +51 with a bonus of Corruption, which doesn't have specific numbers.
>>38197994My only issue with taking Kae is that it's impossible to conceal her from other fae. Fast acting backup is good, but there is a cost to taking her along.
>>38197817>>I sneak up to a vampire and teleport him outWe grab a vamp, then teleport him to where our friends are. Lirael gestalt. She really wants to steal a space ship though.Everyone nearby, we teleport the vamp to them then subdue him.Too bad we cant just aport a few grenades into the engine room of the ship.
>>38198004Any idea if that'd be easier or harder than teleporting?
>>38198004It uses the highest total skill +2. It doesn't add our Willpower to her skill, sadly.
>>38198027>Too bad we cant just aport a few grenades into the engine room of the ship.Why can't we??
>>38198021>is that it's impossible to conceal her from other faeIt isn't, she can still use a Illusion to hide herself.>>38198028We would still need to teleport.
How big is the shutle? Could we just cut it's engines with Artifice or something?
>>38198030Huh, you'd think a gestalt would take the best pieces from every component-mind. It's still a +42 with Corruption and Mastery, assuming the Gestalt can pull Shee's aspects.>>38198027>Too bad we cant just aport a few grenades into the engine room of the ship.They'd probably just get another shuttle, they probably have the clout for that.
>>38198078That wouldn't really help us in capturing the guys.
>>38198093Yes it would. If the shuttle is broken, it gives us far more time than an hour to do it.
>>38198093That depends on where we cut the power, also >>38198100
>>38198089[Psychic Gestalt: You can combine your powers with one or more willing psychics, this requires that at least one of you has the Mental Contact power. A Psychic Gestalt can only take one action per round but uses the highest psychic skill modifier of all the psychics that make it up, plus an extra +2 per psychic beyond the first. It also draws Psychic Energy from any of its members (or other resources such as vitae) as required to use its powers. A Psychic Gestalt is a composite of the minds that make it up. Members can withdraw at any time.]So it would be 38. Liraels +36 +2 gestalt bonus.>>38198100Since we don't know how often these sutthles fly, or for how long we could disable it. Äh no.
ok, roll 2d20, I'm assuming you'll be enhancing your senses for this, to spot the vampires at least.
>>38198048Sure, we can conceal her partially, but fey sense other fey, and she's on a high priority want list. It increases the chanecs of something going wrong whilst somewhat reducing the impact of such a consequence. Also if she is identified, we're identified, and her fey father suddenly has an excuse to intervene against us directly. (I think catching the mastermind of a terrorist attack on an airport could justify the dedication of a vast number of resources, regardless of one's reawakened status.)Also I'd want the others nearby, in case we actually do get teleport jammed. They aren't going to be any help in the desert in case we find ourselves blocked by wards.
Rolled 20, 12 = 32 (2d20)>>38198129
Rolled 9, 15 = 24 (2d20)>>38198129

Rolled 11, 5 = 16 (2d20)>>38198129
>>38198123Lirael has 18 Willpower. +42.
>>38198134If we kidnap one guy, its not a terrorist attack.If she IS identified, the point of giving her father a excuse is somewhat valid, but he could only send them after her, not us, unless he can show we were there, otherwise he'd be violating the agreement.
>>38198174It depends how things play out. If things don't go perfectly and we have to fight our way out it could very well be construed as one.
>>38198210Then yes, but then we are fucked either way because there is no real way to avoid us being found out then.
>>38198229It depends on what abilities we use. If we go full on Ruler of Shadows to get outside of the wards, no one is going to know which Reawakened was responsible.
well I just caught up, So Ash is dead, well shit. And now we're attacking the shuttleport to grab a shadow vamp? This'll go swimmingly.So Anyone up for Dev making a bigass fire bomb and aporting it of Crimsonthorne manor?
>>38198129Did we go alone now or any other constellation?>>38198264Its Reunited, and they can't target those anyway. Only people that can turn into shadow forms in that case, which there is a good chance the shadow vamps know includes us.Not to mention going Ruler of Shadow would kill everyone around us.
“We’re going to keep the danger to a minimum” you say “I’ll go in alone, Kaelyn, Lirael and Rainya will be nearby in case I need help, but the plan is very simple, I sneak up to a vampire, grab him and teleport away.”“And when your face is caught on the cameras and posted on wanted posters, what then?” Asks Dev, folding his arms “It won’t be my face” you say, your appearance blurring into the non-descript shape of someone else. Around you all of your allies react a little differently.[Shadow of the Depths 3 gained, -5XP]Rainya grin, Liraels says “Ohh, can you be me Shee, be me!”Dev nods, looking impressed and Kaelyn folds her arms and shakes her head “It won’t pass” she says “you’ll get spotted by security.”“It only needs to work long enough for me to get close” you say “After that, it doesn’t matter.”---You’re at the shuttleport, according to Baalzamons timescale you have around 40 minutes left before they’re due to leave.Kaelyn, Lirael and Rainya are outside, it’s early evening, and you’ve recovered, at least a little.[HP 41/147, PE 13/48]Getting in was the easy part, you wander around, looking for a group of creepy shadow-vampires, this place only has a single terminal, this should be easy.And it is! You spot a group of pale-skinned vampire reminiscent of the one you saw in Ashs dream, but it looks like they’re about to go through a security checkpoint, including needing to show a ticket. There are six vampires there and there’s a crowd between you and them, you might just get there if you hurry.
>>38198290I'd be down for it. Doubt we'd get through the wards tho.
You could just rush them and grab one, but the fast approach might tip them off.You could follow slowly, but would need to buy a ticket or get past the security checkpoint another way, and it looks like they have at least one mage on duty there.Or you could try and damage the shuttle and delay their flight. This place has six shuttles waiting outside on the pad though, and you don’t know which is theirs.Actions?>Rush and grab>Slow approach>Sabotage Shuttle>Other (what?)
>>38198304>All that wasted PE we could use now>>38198324>Rush and grab
>>38198324>Sabotage Shuttleor if need be>Rush and grab
>>38198324Could we use Assumption of Authority to get through the checkpoint?
>>38198324>Rush and grabDamaging the shuttle would require getting past the security that is supposed to make sure shuttles don't get damaged.
How does space travel work? Could we hijack some sort of military elf stealth salvage corvette and then board the shuttle in transit?
>>38198324>Rush and grab
>>38198296They can target specific Reunited in proportion to the crimes they are known to have committed. Anyway, so long as we make a retreat and are careful about what powers we use, we can still get out without being identified. You right about using Ruler of Shadows though.
>>38198324>Rush and grab>>38198351Only if they would let someone of higher Authority go through unchecked, which would be a pretty massive gamble.
>>38198324>Sabotage ShuttleAssumption of Authority should work well for getting to where we need to get to.
>>38198324>Assumption of Authority
>>38198351its an option, yes
>>38198290>So Anyone up for Dev making a bigass fire bomb and aporting it of Crimsonthorne manor?Why?
>>38198324Do we know much about how standard wards against teleportation work? Like, if you're inside of a warded area, can you easily teleport to anywhere inside of that warded area? If so, I propose we just immediately teleport up to the Vamp, and teleport with him away.
So, without our allies with us, how do we subdue this guy while being half-dead and nearly out of PE?
>>38198449>>38198423>>38198376Assumptiom of Authority does not make people obey us by itself.And in a major port checkpoint, they have ways to instantly find out if we are supposed to be here, it will only backfire.

You know that most wards against magic or magical abilities inhibit or suppress all relevant magics anywhere within their area, however it is possible to make ones that only affect magic *passing over the line* - allowing magic to be used freely within the area as long as it does not pass into or out of the area in question. These types of wards are cheaper and easier to make.Voting time extended by 5 minutes in light of new info
>>38198528I sped read and missed some parts. We need to look out for Yonsul then, she'd be next on the list.
>>38198512>We tell them who sent us and how to not end this in pain and death.And then he attacks us because of who sent us, and we can't really fight because we are out of resources.Fantastic.
>>38198578They could know about Yonsul and the waystation
>>38198528We tell them to check for a bomd without alarming the customers and to send the vamps to see us.
>>38198607And then the vamps question our authority, because it doesn't work on them, and we are fucked.
>>38198557That sounds to me like "Your tele-nab plan is about to go real fuckin bad"Oh well. I wanna sabotage the engines, but it's not gonna win.
>>38198557Where exactly did we leave our allies?
>>38198655I doesn't look like people wanna switch to sabotage no.
>>38198637At that point we grab and flee if we can't talk them into doing this freely.
>>38198655Why do you think that?
>>38198604Staff would be less useful than a police informant. They wouldn't go after our restuarnat until they were ready fo us at full power/ (we aren't but they don't seem to know that yet) Also a lone cop is easier to aake than an entire building of people who can detect psi and magic.
>>38198324>Sabotage ShuttleWe might be able to grab one of them on their lonesome when their flight is delayed.
>>38198672because it would mean needing to get to the shuttle, then sabotage the shuttle withoput being caught, and then hope there is no alternative flight for today they can take.Thats not a great plan.
ok, teleport and grab it is, please designate location and are you usingSubtle Talent?>Y/NImpossibility?>Y/N
>>38198692Read the thing Pally just said. Even the cheap, more common wards will stop things from moving into or out of them through magical means.

>>38198713I'm still waiting for a description of our allies location, so we can know if its safe to teleport to them first or not.Because thats kinda important for if we subtle teleport now or on the second jump, and where.
>>38198724And? Are you new?

>>38198747They're just outside the shuttle port, in case they need to come running in to help
>>38198713>Y>YWhatever. Bound to fail anyway.
>>38198767It also makes us impossible to trace by, say, the other shadow vampires right there that can use Shadow Jump.
>>38198781..That is very unhelpful.The question was, are they just out in the open? Somewhere bit out on the side? Somewhere secluded so we can teleport to them?Are there somewhere where other people can see them?
How are we going to meet up with our allies if we teleport?
ok, please roll 3d20, Subtle Impossible Teleport and vote on extra PE used for Subtle and TeleportPlease choose a location or I will assume out in the desert.>>38198807>The question was, are they just out in the open? Somewhere bit out on the side? They're in an alleyway, out of sight>Somewhere secluded so we can teleport to them?Arguably so>Are there somewhere where other people can see them?According to Lirael there is no one else around that she can see.
>>38198784Sure it does, but they'd be teleporting through wards if they wanted to follow. It'd take them some time to respond, if they even think to. That and we can then relocate somewhere else once we're reasonably confident we won't be needing to spend much more PE.
Where are we actually teleporting to? I really don't want to go into the Waystation with a full-health shadow vamp.

>>38198955>AlleywayThanks for the chance to choose, Pally. You're the best.
>>38198955Ready to leave when it all goes well.
>>38198955No its perfectly fine location, it would have just been good to know beforehand.We can't really decide location because we don't know what it looks like outside the port anyway.I'm not mad, I was just abit aggravated by having not knowing where they are, because that was important for obvious reasons.
>>38198947I don't really hate Baalz. He just acts according to his nature, and is honest about what he is in his own way. I mean, he openly claims to be the master of deception. It's pretty hard to misconstrue what that means Do you hate a snake for being a snake?
>>38198955Optimally I would want them outside in the Desert, but the winning vote asked for them to be outside the port, so that doesn't work.So Alleyway is fine.It would have been nice to have it be described ahead of time though, I agree.
We can use Lirael's vitae pool in gestalt for the domination attempt, right?
>>38199016Yes. Also for any other power, so we can use it to fuel our next teleport jump too.
>>38199007yes, yes I do.Maybe not snake but mosquitoes sure
>>38199007If it bites me, then hell fucking yes I hate it.
>>38199007Hate, no. Avoid, yes.
>>38199007hate no avoid yes, kill if it's a threat? yes.
>>38199055He did let us know this was going to happen, that's not very bad.
You know, Baalzamon didn't have to tell us at all. He could have just let the shuttle leave and the pop up and tell us that we were fucked with nothing we could do, but he decided to give us a chance to fix it instead.Yeah, he was a bit of an asshole about it by waiting until the last second and trying to leverage more shit with it, but he could have fucked us on this so much and instead he gave us a chance to not get fucked at all.He's still a slimy cock though.
>>38198947Does it even matter what they think of Baalzamon?
You shove quickly through the crowd, ignoring peoples protests and head for the vampires as quickly as you can. They’re almost all through the checkpoint you just need to touch one and then you can-As you’re just reaching out to grab a vampire it suddenly turns and grabs you by the throat, lifting you off the ground “what are you doing?” asks the tall pale vampire in the dark clothing and long coat.“What’s she doing? What’re you doing?” asks the security guard at the station, reaching for his gun.Not an ideal situation, but still, close enough contact to grab this vampire. You focus on teleporting, being somewhere else, not in this shuttle port and the world around you shifts and you’re not in the shuttleport anymore, instead you’re outside in the alleyway, the vampire still holding you up by your throat.[PE 5/48]“What the...” says the vampire, its pale face contorted in surprise, still visible despite the shadowy lighting in the alleyway this late in the afternoon.Kaelyn, Lirael and Rainya jump at little at your sudden appearance but are otherwise unsurprised.Actions?>Talk, offer a deal>Dominate (gestalt? Y/N)>Kae, knock him out>Deal was kidnap, he’s been kidnapped, now we let him go>Other (what?)
>>38199096No that was quite nice.A shame we didn't hear him out
>>38199039I just view his entire being as a force of nature, rather than an individual. He acts deceptive, he betrays, because he is the essence of betrayal and deception. You expect him to betray you with every deal he makes. He is compelled. Revenge against him is pointless. (The Mirror on the otherhand strikes me as someone who is more of an individual, given how he reacted to his plans being spoilt. Though the metaphysical aspects of the Mirror are a lot more difficult to define compared to Balzy)
>>38199110>Kae, knock him out
>>38199104If we want to fuck him over, and they want to fuck him over.Or at least we can appeal to it.
>>38199110>Dominate Y>Then Teleport(Subtle) with everyone into the desert

>>38199135Allying ourself with the shadow vamps against Baalzi would turn him into our enemy just as bad as Mirror.I really don't want that, he's been fairly good to us outside of this recent fuckery. I just want Lirael to not end up as his new clan head puppet.
>>38199110>Talk, offer a dealReady withDominate (gestalt Y)
>>38199199Because he's a vampire of completly unknown physical prowess, meaning we have no guarantee she can knock him out, and then he teleports out with Shadowcraft, and without Gestalt we have little chance of stopping that.

>>38199227Not enough PE?I dunno.
>>38199227We are, but one thing at a time
>>38199227But we are going to do exactly that?
>>38199244With Quicken we can do it the same round, and with gestalt we can use Liraels vitae to fuel that.

>>38199322I would assume that would be the case yes. Unless anons request teleportation no matter what
>>38199339I'd prefer to teleport with him no matter what. I see no reason why we would keep standing around in the alleyway with him.

>>38199964If he does beat our roll, but then we aren't really any worse of if Divert fails, since we can still re-grab him.

>>38199997Might want to hold on to it in case he tosses out a spell or two we could absorb.
>>38200018haha, that would be so sweet if it could work. I doubt it will tho
>>38200018We would only learn Shadowcraft, not the Shadow Power.
>>38199997Hoard.Always hoard.I am the XP dragon.>>38200018I don't think that'd actually work? None of the shadow stuff seems like it'd be absorbable, we couldn't absorb shadow arms from the Emissary and there's nothing else that's directed like that. Not sure if we could teach Lirael either, since it wouldn't be the real Shadows power, though we might be able to extrapolate more Shadowcraft (psionics) from it.What was the condition for being able to learn Shadows ourselves again?
>>38200043Shadowcraft for psychics is the same thing as Shadow Power for vamps.
>>38199943So basically, need to tie up major over hanging plot points before we go ahead and some slice of life or romance?Was there any chance to save Ash, or did not healing him kill him?And was our delay in resing him to remove those slivers bad?
>>38200061The Shadows power is a 20 rank power under vampire abilities. They are not the same thing, though Shadows can access some Shadowcraft abilities and grants a bonus to them.>>38200069>need to tie up major over hanging plot points before we go ahead and some slice of life or romance?But we keep getting more plot points...
>>38200060>we couldn't absorb shadow arms from the EmissaryBecause we were in RoS mode and that locks us out of using non-Baalzamon gifts while it's active.We could have copied his stuff if any of it actually hit us before we went RoS.>>38200060>What was the condition for being able to learn Shadows ourselves again?We can either rip it out of this guy's head or we can get it once we have Primacy of Blood.
>>38200098Maybe we should take some more initiative then
>>38200061No they are seperate things, read the related entries.Shadow Power gives access to a form of that, but it goes far beyond that.
>>38200069>Was there any chance to save Ash, or did not healing him kill him?Once Ash got hit, psychic healing wasn't going to work until the slivers were removed.Theoretically teleporting him to a hospital as soon as he got hit might have worked.>And was our delay in resing him to remove those slivers bad?It raised the DC to help him, but without removing them, Impossibility had a very high DC anyway.
>>38200125The main problem we have with solving plot threads, is other plot threads getting in the way.>>38200144What would have been the side-effects for each of the Aspects, had they worked.Which one would have been the easiest?
>>38200144Now we have a reason to hold a hardcore grudge, that is fine story-wise too
>>38200144Would family or corruption have had a better chance?What changes would any of them have caused?
>>38200144I admit my respect for you has significantly risen, I wouldn't have thought you would kill a major NPC like that.Even one as, controversial, as Ashley.
>>38200104>We could have copied his stuff if any of it actually hit us before we went RoS.It did. Did you miss the part where we were *impaled* by a shadow arm in Titan Form?>we can get it once we have Primacy of Blood.Oh, right, that was the condition. I knew there was some condition or another, but I thought it was something else.>>38200144I'm curious what the final DC was, but not sure if I want the answer, since I'm sure it'll be a frustrating number.
>>38200144I take it the anti-magic knife nixed Ash's chance at being a letum even if we removed them?
>>38200222>Oh, right, that was the condition. I knew there was some condition or another, but I thought it was something else.We can always just force this guy we just grabbed to teach us. PoB isn't /necessary/ but it would let us learn on our own.
>>38200144Sounded like we needed medical nanobots to heal him.With it in his heart it won't do shit.Can he still rise as the full, or did the slivers kill that also?
>>38200158>>38200190>What would have been the side-effects for each of the Aspects, had they worked.Impossibility: Ash starts to manifest impossibility physical characteristics.Corruption: Ashs mind is reformated as Shee desires - put to a vote as to how>>38200226CorrectFamily: Ash has difficulty feeding off anyones blood except Shee or someone with Sweetblood power.>Which one would have been the easiest?Corruption
First thing next thread we should stuff our necklace in his face
>>38200204Yeah, I gotta say in a quest, especially with a volatile audience as this one tends to be, that takes something.I'm also proud of all the anons, most anyway, as to how civil the whole thing went over when it came to it.
>>38200249>>Which one would have been the easiest?>CorruptionFucking called it!To be fair, it was at best a educated guess.
>>38200249>CorruptionCorruption confirmed for best Aspect once again.>>38200254Do we even have that still on us? I think it got last mentioned in thread, 9?
>>38200262Nobody was mad because few people actually like him. It seems like half of them were actively trying to kill him, a fourth wanted him saved, and the last fourth were totally indifferent.
>>38200262I get the feeling this crowd is generally 'civil', expect for the Baalz thing.
>>38200321I think it was more half being totally indifferent, still, he got a lot of hate over time, so it could have been alot uglier.But yes, him not being very popular probably contributed.
>>38200284Fuck the mess a mind reformat would cause. We likely missed the DC by one too.He is the fourth to die so far. One was when story was new, would of been another psychic. One was Charon one was Quinn. Last was Ash.Last one was only we knew well in thread.
>>38200249Does Shee have any kind of bite instincts yet? Like, does she feel inclined to actually use her fangs or does she not have any idea that she can actually harvest Vitae?
>>38200321Yeah, people were unreasonably rude and indifferent when think about the supposed bond between Ash and Shee. But done is done.
>>38200388>Does Shee have any kind of bite instincts yet?Not yet, maybe they'll show up soon
>>38200386>He is the fourth to die so far.We didn't know Rhydian at all, most wanted to kill Quinn themselves, really only Charun came close and most people disliked him at best.>>38200388Seems appropriate once we reach FoL4+
>>38200388We can't harvest Vitae until rank 3, at this rank it just restores psychic energy.
>>38200427>>38200313Do we still have the necklace?
Does anyone remember what the infernal focus would have done if we'd used our necklace?
>>38200444I liked both Charon and even better Quinn. I don't think I was entirely alone in that either
>>38200484Initially Constitution bonus.
Mirror Avatar needs to die. Soon. She'll try to kidnap Dev next since he leaves the Waystation more than anyone else because he actually has a job.
>>38200484>Necklace: Or any other object worn around the neck. Increases your Constitution modifier by +2 to resist powers and abilities.
>>38200508Yup. After we get Mr. Shadow vamp under wraps we're going hunting. Just saying we might want to get durability up to 9 for max regen.
>>38200508I'm expecting Rainya to get the chop soon. Honestly we're probably just going to lose everyone eventually.
>>3820054840HP per day is pretty good, we want FoL rather soon.We only really need enough HP to survive a first strike, afterwards TempHP from Life Drain covers the job.
The antimagic knife makes me think that Mirror's been cheating hard and telling his avatar about our weaknesses.They're not supposed to do that, right?
>>38200599I don't remember any rule saying they can't do that.
>>38200491I liked them as characters. I felt that after baal adjusted Quinns mind, he could have been an ally, as he was given a conscious. Must be uncomfortable for a vampire like him.Well most of the possible companions we could pick up as extra help are dead. Yonsoul is some bad info from getting killed too.Too bad we didn't push to port ash to us naked without anything.
>>38200580unless she has something to negate it. Mirror is going to be coaching her to take us out as much as he can without the others kicking his shit in. She's likely a chaos mage who has a ward to negate drains.>>38200599Not supposed to, but that knife was equally good against vamps and he might have just hinted at the explosion bit as a good idea.
>>38200599I think the anti-magic knife was so Ash can't revive.Our enemy probably got told by Garrax we follow Ichor strongly, so he went after Ashley to hurt us, since he was the easiest target of those close to us.
>>38200630We might need to tell Yonsul she needs to take a vacation for a while. She is not as vulnerable since she is together with other cops all the time, but we need to take precuations.The same with Dev, we need to find away to make sure he can instantly contact us if something is up.Maybe send one of the Rainyas to watch out.
>>38200630I really really hope Yonsul doesn't get killed. Should we try and make her psychic?
>>38200656Next would be Dev or maybe Yonsul. if Garrax did help her, we're going to kill him in the king of hell approved method. Slowly and in great pain.
>>38200709I'm a fan of porting a couple hundred plasma grenades above his club and just letting them fall all over it.Boom.
>>38200704>I really really hope Yonsul doesn't get killed.>giving the QM ideas
>>38200704We won't be able to do that for a while.And because of her job, she is experienced in dealing with mindfuckery, Dev is the far easier target.Assuming the enemy knows about Yonsul at all.It all depends on where she gets her info.Its still possible, though unlikely, Jade IS Mirrors Avatar, and this was a "eye for an eye" thing.
>>38200709How many people even know we know Yonsul though? We're pretty careful in our dealings with her. We haven't even talked to her in public in a long time.
>>38200709>king of hell approved method. Slowly and in great pain.I thought that would be infront of his followers, afterwards we state they are now our followers, crown blazing, full of magestic wrath.
