You are Shee Hyul, rebel leader, psychic and Reunited. Your world is ruled by inhuman creatures and this has gone on far too long, it’s time to fight back.Character Sheet http://pastebin.com/fYSgcZdERules http://pastebin.com/LEEi5A3uArchives https://archive.moe/tg/search/username/Pally/type/op/And http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Psychic%20Rebel%20QuestSetting http://pastebin.com/95D5RNhPBusiness http://pastebin.com/NwspZmKwAllies http://pastebin.com/yVgtiFeuAlly Powers http://pastebin.com/Xm6UGDyXQM Twitter https://twitter.com/anAspiringQMQM Askfm http://ask.fm/AnAspiringQMYou’ve just defeated, no, wiped out, and army by summoning a monster that ate most of them, the remnants are fleeing into the jungle. Among the consumed was one of Jane Vindels puppets, or clones, or whatever they’re called. Now she knows that you’re here, and will be planning accordingly. She might leave this place, as useful as it is to her, or she might use it to attack you, thinking that you’ve walked into the perfect (if perhaps unplanned) trap.Camping here seems like a foolish plan so you relocate and set a watch in case any of the fleeing beastmen stumble across you. The night passes mostly uneventfully; A few predators scope out your encampment but scatter quickly when confronted with laser bolts and plasma bursts. The morning brings with it another hot and humid day. You and your companions rise and well...enjoy isn’t the right word but you have a breakfast of preserved foods, enough to keep you going. Lirael supplements her breakfast with several of the bloodfruits you’ve bought with you, tearing into them with gusto. Your other companions are less enthusiastic about their meals, but don’t waste time with complaints.Finally, you’re ready to start the day, but what to do?
All around you lies hostile jungle. Ahead lies a vast barrier of spider webs, impossible to move through without cutting or burning you way through it and you still have no idea where Jane Vindels base or hideaway is. And finally, the mind of the forest itself is all around you. You spoke to it before but even a short exchange took hours. Still, it might be your best hope of locating Jane Vindel without spending days trudging through a vast jungle.Actions?>Head towards spider web barrier>Contact forest mind>Do something else (what?)
>>38393673>Contact forest mind
>>38393669>Contact forest mind
>>38393673>Contact forest mindForest bro will help us.What name do we give?
>>38393754Daughter of the Tyrantslayer
>>38393803Best name it is then, I was going to add a vote for that to my post but my brain would not let me spell Daughter.
>>38393831As long as we don't know what this thing is, I would not bring dad into this.He made a pretty large variety of enemies.Assuming this thing even gives a shit about names at all, which I kind of doubt.
>>38393673>>Contact forest mind
>>38393860If we bring dad into this we learn if it cares about such things, if things go wrong we're faster than it is.
>>38393898>we're faster than it isIts literally everywhere around us.I wouldn't bet on that, especially since we win nothing by bringing it up.
>>38393898We would also lose our current best chance at finding and ending Jane.Oh, and keep in mind that it's been blocking our attempts to see anywhere too far from ourselves in the canyon effortlessly in spite of being slower, so I wouldn't rely on that to keep it from hurting us if it wants to.
“Again?” asks Rainya as you settle down against a tree after telling the others to keep watch. Kaelyn and Dev simply nod and accept your decision, Lirael pouts when you tell her that she won’t be joining you.“Yes again” you say to Rainya “I think this thing is the whole forest, and perhaps something more besides, it might be the only way to find her.”“Alright” says one of the Rainyas, shrugging as they all take up position around your small encampment.You reach out to the forests mind and sink into a deep connection with it.-WHAT ARE YOU?- the vast mind enquires-I’m Shee- you say, there doesn’t seem much point in hiding your name, Jane Vindel already knows you are here, and this thing probably hasn’t heard it.-WHERE DO YOU COME FROM?- it asks-I come from a long way away- you say –from outside the canyon--OUTSIDE? ARE YOU LIKE THE CREATOR?- it asks. You sense some sort or turmoil in its mind but don’t know what it means.-Who is the Creator?- You ask-THE CREATOR MADE ALL- responds the mind-I’d like to know more please- You say, if Jane Vindel made something like this, just how powerful is she? This forest mind can brush you aside with its sheer strength easily.-ONCE THERE WAS NOTHING, ONLY DREAMS, THEN I AWOKE AND SAW THE WORLD. THEN THE CREATOR CAME AND TOLD ME THAT SHE MADE THE WORLD AND MADE ME AND THAT SHE WAS PLEASED AT WHAT SHE HAD MADE- responds the forests mind.Huh, so it existed before she showed up perhaps? –That sounds incredible- you say politely –then what happened?--AT FIRST I DID NOT BELIEVE, FOR THE CREATOR WAS SO TINY, SO HARD TO SEE. I DENIED HER, SHE DEMONSTRATED WHAT SHE WAS BY CREATING MORE, AND BY SHOWING ME WHAT PAIN IS. I DO NOT LIKE PAIN.- it explains.
You are dimly aware of someone saying into your ear over and over “It’s 3 o’clock Shee” sounds like Kaelyn.What do you do?>Stop talking with it for now (exclusive)>Try to read its mind>Tell me more about what you are>Tell me about the Creator>Try to convince it that it has been lied to>Other topic (what?)

>>38393946>Try to convince it that it has been lied toLet's keep this quick.
>inb4 Jane has Aspects of Creation and Destruction
Huh. So this is why Pally actually held a vote on whether or not to do that retarded "magic space kudzu" plan. Guess it wasn't so retarded after all.
>>38394066It still would've been retarded, just for slightly different reasons.
ok, so asking it about itself and convince it that it has been lied to.roll 1d20+19, FellowshipThis early in the conversation, DC is *very* high

>>38394100Normally 35 should be enough, but *very* high makes me worried here.
>>38394090>>3839410035? Is 35 high enough?
>>38394003>Throw around some of our blood to make it grow plants where it hits the groundThat only works in our realm.
>>38394129Best case scenario, we've planted a seed of doubt and the conversation continues.Middle case, the conversation continues with the Hivemind being slightly more terse than before but still curious.Worst case, we roll for Willpower.
>>38394144No, worst case we roll 5d20 for CON.
>>38394143Nope. The blood thing actually works everywhere.
>>38393946"One does not have to be the, or even A creator to show other beings pain. I believe you are much more ancient than she is. And if she causes you pain, I can help you with that, and make sure she won't hurt you ever again."This thing's just a poor little baby.
>>38394162Has not yet happened in the story outside of our realm, and the Gift write-up mentions that effect right after specifically adressing our Realm, so I'm gonna sa, no it doesn't until we get prove it does.
>>38394173>That lateWow, looks like I managed to not refresh for much longer than I thought.
>>38394173>"One does not have to be the, or even A creator to show other beings pain.He doesn't believe that anyway. He believes she is the creator because she created things.
>>38394174We could probably make it work with Corruption.
>>38394174The power dealt with plants in general whether in the realm or not. Specifically, in relation to the realm, it makes the plants created there persist when removed. Everything else about Fecundity of the Ocean was about plants in the real world, including the blood growth.Whether or not Shee knows it, she's got instincts related to her powers that have been touched on before. Unless Pally tells us "you need someone/something to introduce that", we can usually vote to do it.As for the order of the sentences being a factor, no. It's already been stated that the only reason we didn't have plants growing everywhere after the knife blew up on us was because the blood was flowing over antinite before it hit the ground.
>>38394222>including the blood growthAgain, there is no evidence to that, and we can't create plants outside of our Realm, so until we get indication it works like that, its a foolish thing to assume it does.>>38394222>It's already been stated>[cititization needed]
>>38394243http://ask.fm/AnAspiringQM/answer/124775886636Also, there's one from a couple hours ago that, while not directly stating it's possible to grow plants with our blood here, heavily implies that it is. http://ask.fm/AnAspiringQM/answer/125048764972
>>38394243We can't create plants from nothing outside of the realm because that's not what the power does. It makes it so that our blood encourages plant growth. The realm itself and our control over that is what we're using to create plants in there, FotO just enhances that. You're conflating two different but related things.
>>38394222Factually, no plants grew when our blood was sprayed around in the fight against the shadow vamp.>>38394261Which appears to have been a oversight on Pallys part, then. To be fair to the other anon, not everyone reads the ask.fm. Usually we keep questions to the thread for that reason.
Your blood *does* grow plants outside your realm. My apologies for not being clear about this.IC Shee knows this would happen, but not the specifics (how big a plant, what type, does it die if it grows on concrete etc)
>>38394295>Which appears to have been a oversight on Pallys part, then.That's probably what happened seeing as he forgot we had Divert teleport during that fight and that's way more relevant than FotO 99% of the time. But I'd rather think that Shee just didn't care enough about it for it to be mentioned in the narrative. Like, "Oh, my blood is growing plants. That's so normal I shouldn't even have to mention that. Would you specifically mention that the ground got wet if your blood landed on it? No? Then why do I have to mention that mine made it plants".>>38394324Thank you.
-Tell me more about what you are- you say to the forest mind-I AM ALL- the mind responds –I AM THE JUNGLE, THE PLANTS AND THE TREES, I BIND ALL TOGETHER--Is that how you can see me?- you ask –Because I’m not a part of you? Why are you stopping me from looking ahead?–-THE CREATOR SAYS ALL THOSE FROM OUTSIDE MST BE TRACKED AND KEPT FROM USING ANY FORM OF *MAGIC* TO SEE VERY FAR.- It respondsDamn, so maybe Jane Vindel knew you were here, but if so, why not attack straight away? You formulate your next question –How are you tracking me? And how can you stop me so easily?--WHEN I WAS CREATED I COULD SEE THROUGH ALL EYES, HEAR THROUGH ALL EARS, FEEL ALL THINGS, AND I COULD USE WHAT THE CREATOR CALLS *MAGIC*-Well that explains that. –And why are you talking to me- you ask –Has the Creator not given you other orders?--THE CREATOR WISHES TO KNOW WHERE ENEMIES ARE, AND THAT I ATTACK THEM- It says, then seems to hesitate before adding –I DO NOT KNOW WHAT AN *ENEMY* IS, THE CREATORS EXPLANATION SEEMED TO INDICATE A PREDATOR, BUT THERE ARE MANY PREDATORS THAT ARE PART OF ME, AND THIS DID NOT MAKE SENSE. YOU HAVE NOT KILLED, YOU HAVE HIDDEN, I THINK YOU ARE NOT A PREDATOR OR AN *ENEMY*-You’re suddenly very glad you weren’t more trigger-happy when you arrived.-I think the Creator has deceived you- you say –You told me that you were aware before the Creator came to you, perhaps she didn’t create you at all, perhaps you came into being another way and she simply found you--THE CREATOR MADE ME- it say stubbornly –THE CREATOR SHOWED ME HOW SHE MAKES THINGS, AND SHE PROVED SHE WAS MIGHTIER BY HURTING ME. SHE IS THE CREATOR--If she was the Creator- you say –Why would she need to hurt you?--SHE IS THE CREATOR- it insists, then adds –TELL ME ABOUT OUTSIDE?-Kaelyns voice comes again “Shee we’re going to bed”.
You wonder how you can convince it that you’re telling the truth. Perhaps if you spilled your blood here, or linked your mind to it? Or maybe if you made friends with it?Your response?>Stop talking with it for now (exclusive)>Tell me about the Creator>Try to convince it that it has been lied to>Other topic (what?)Convincing it>Tell it about your home>Spill blood to grow plants>Try to read its mind>Other (what?)It is assumed you will be talking in the morning, unless write-ins request talking through the night.
>>38394351Its actually important if our fight left plants behind, since we don't know what plants it makes grow.Its a rather huge lead to us, so it would actually be noteable.>>38394374>Try to convince it that it has been lied to>Tell it about your home>Spill blood to grow plants>Talk through the nightWe don't have infinite time here.

>>38394386>>38394394>Tell it about the ReunitedTo what purpose? I don't see what that would do, especially since everythign we tell it takes huge amounts of tiem, so we should keep the conversations as short as possible.
>>38394374>Tell it about your home>Spill blood to grow plants>OtherI don't like Pain either that is why I am here, to stop the pain.I am here to find Jane (The lady with metalic legs and black-coloured lightning)Tell It about our realm

>>38394374>Spill blood to grow plants>Tell it about your home and how young a human is.
>>38394386>>38394394>>38394415You guys do realise that trying to say "all the things" means giving Jane more time to prepare for us?Since talking to it takes huge amounts of time.We just don't have that time.
>>38394374The plants we care for grow at 5 times the normal rate. Is that all the plants around us or do we specifically have to do "care" actions to them?Could we ask the mind if it can feel us healing/helping it around the area where we are?
>>38394374>>38394394>>Tell me about the Creator>>Tell it about your home>>Spill blood to grow plants
>>38394374>Tell me about the Creator>Tell it about your home>Spill blood to grow plants>Talk through the night>>38394410Undermining Jane's claims by explaining the nature of the Reunited and the contest, the timeframe of the contest and the Astrobleme in particular, presumably.
This is looking more and more like the personal realm of an incredibly powerful senile fae has spilled over into the real world. It even has the abnormal time flow thing happening.
>>38394374>Try to convince it that it has been lied to>Tell it about your home>Spill blood to grow plants>Talk through the nightBetter to get done fast, I'm worried about her using the time to kidnap our people to use against us.
>>38394463>Undermining Jane's claims by explaining the nature of the Reunited and the contestI can see that? But I don't think the benefit would outweight the cost here.It would already need to believe us for it to work, and in that case demonstrating we can create to, already undermines her claim sufficiently.And then there is the issue that she might have told him all Reunited are enemies.
>>38394503I agree, that's why I didn't vote for it. I just thought I'd try my hand at explaining the possible rationale of those that did.
We do have the option of using Corruption to make this quick but we could easily fail so we would need to explain that we were giving it part of us so it could understand us better.
>>38394468I don't see evidence of abnormal time flow.Our talking to it only takes so much time because the thing is huge and slow.It might be a huge fae like Geheganesh, but since his arrival was a pretty big deal, I can't imagine Kae wouldn't know about a second.Some sort of magical intelligence seems more likely.Possibly the remnant of the war, given that the War Follower is here.
>>38394449>Could we ask the mind if it can feel us healing/helping it around the area where we are?You have to feed hem, water them, the usual.In here though, things grow plenty fast on their ownwriting convince it has been lied to, telling it about your home, spilling blood and talking through the nightPlease roll Fellowship 1d20+19

You break off from your conversation just long enough to say to Kaelyn “I’m going to keep going, don’t worry about me.”Kaelyn says something else, a worried look on her face as you sink back into the mental connection with the forest mind.-My home is far from here- you explain as briefly as you can about the Hive, the people living in it, and your own Realm. The forests mind is intrigued by the realm you made and keeps asking questions about it.-ARE YOU A CREATOR TOO?- it asks-There are some things I can create- you answer. You return your consciousness to your body long enough to cut yourself with a knife, your blood spilling on the ground. As it soaks into the soil you look around. Your body feels stiff and unresponsive and the campsite around you has a latrine pit, a cooking shelter made from spare tent sheets and several other small embellishments. Only Dev and a couple of the Rainyas are nearby, of Kaelyn, Lirael and the rest of the Rainyas there is no sign, but Dev and the Rainyas don’t seem worried, perhaps they just went for a short walk after setting all of that up.You sink back into the mental connection with the forest mind as beside you, strange multi-headed flowers and weeds sprout.-WHAT ARE THESE?- asks the forest mind –PLANTS BUT NOT A PART OF ME? HOW?--I told you I can create some things- you answer –I still think the Creator has lied to you- you try to persuade it –I don’t think she made you at all and--I CAN USE THESE- says the forest mind, ignoring your attempt to convince it –I CAN LINK THE NEARBY PLANTS TO THEIR ROOT SYSTEMS AND-You feel like something is brushing across the surface of your skin, and then everything seems to go dark.-What is happening?- you ask the forest mind, as you start to wonder exactly what it just did, you think you should be worried, but you oddly feel calm, so calm, and so tired....
You feel a familiar touch on your mind, then it is gone again, there, and gone again, is that...Lirael?-What are you doing?- you ask it-THE PLANTS YOU CREATE ARE AMAZING!- says the forest mind excitedly –THEY ARE LIKE NO OTHERS, I MUST GROW MORE OF THEM, I NEED MORE OF THEM, I NEED MORE OF YOU!-You feel cold, and sleepy, so tired, so easy to just rest. Your skin feels damp and clammy, you try opening your eyes but cannot see through the darkness, no, not darkness, soil. You are underground. You return to your own body only to realise that all around you is wet soil, that were it not for a long hollow vine stuffed down your throat you would not be able to breathe, and with every beat your heart pushes more of your blood into the tiny roots that have dug into your flesh and are draining blood from your body, slowly but surely.-Stop this!- you thunder at the forest mind –Release me!-Through the roots within your body, and from your connection to the forest mind you can sense...a vast world. New plants are growing within the jungle. They are spreading out rapidly from where you were, growing like a stain, or corruption within the forest, but spurred on by the forest mind itself. You can feel vines growing teeth to attack nearby animals and plants and drain them, trees growing tentacles to attack other nearby trees and grab animals. Where the new plants reach the river running through the canyon they don’t drain it, instead the water level rises. Within the area of the new jungle the shadows come alive and start moving.
The fruits and plants of the forest can become sweet and nourishing or toxic at a moments notice, under the control of the forests mind. You can dimly sense your companions somewhere within the jungle, but the new jungle doesn’t attack them, instead you see it protecting them from the animals of the jungle...and from the hunting parties of beastmen that are searching from them. The plants hide them and harass the beastmen – you see beastmen wrapped in vines that drain their blood or lashed at by bone-tipped tendrils from nearby trees.As the beastmen hack at the plans around them, the severed limbs and parts of the plants simply grow into new plants once the beastmen have passed, seemingly impossible to truly kill. As they try concoctions and poisons to battle this new plant life, the plants do wither, and some die, only for the survivors to adapt quickly to new forms of attack. The harder they try to kill the plants, the harder they fight back. The plants begin to develop impossible methods of defence: claws wreathed in green flame, auras of fear that terrify those that get too close.You see your new plants defend your allies, protecting them from the beastmen and stranger things that hunt them. All the while the forest draws forth more from you, giddily wanting more, and stranger plants. An unseen *somebody* directs the beastmen in their hunt for your allies, Jane Vindel perhaps? You cannot perceive her properly, though you think you can sense her approximate location, many kilometres away.You pull yourself out of the connection with the forest mind, realising your body has grown weak, how long have you been here? Can you break free and dig your way out? Can you teleport away?
Still, the forest has grown a lot of new, strange plants, too many perhaps. Before you returned to your body again you thought perhaps the plants grown from your blood where about to overwhelm the jungle, make it into something like you, make it into yours.[Corruption +1]You’re trapped an unknown distance underground and you feel weak and malnourished.

What do you want to do next after teleporting out?
1. The forest is likely going to try and fight back against us and attack our friends for doing this.2. This is basically enslaving a sentient being.3. We do This Jane will be running faster than you can say Oh shit, and we'll be too weak to follow.

>>38395144She is definitly going to run when we subsume the entire forest.She is currently not running because just some weird shit is happening, if we make her hiding place into a extension of ourself, she will run.Stopping now gives her the wrong impression we were stopped by something.

This power costs nothing and may be activated at will, however, you may not bring more than 20kg beyond your personal equipment or any living beings along with you when making a Void Jump.For anyone who hasn't read it, basically a teleport that costs nothing and is way harder to block.
>>38395223>Why just 23? Aren't we in complete darkness right now?Thanks for the reminder, will add manually
>>38395237Its not really equal to teleport, because the distance you can jump is far smaller.
>>38395243You're right, but for the purposes of getting out of the ground I don't think we'll need to go much further than 1km.
>>38395237>basically a teleport that costs nothing and is way harder to blockIn exchange it also is a lot more limited, since distance is a lot smaller, we can only carry 20kg and no living beings with us.So its not like teleport at all.
>>38395239Teleport to Rainya
After we Get PoB we might want to level FoL some more, especially if we want to keep the genius Loci.
>>38395333We can only get one more level of FoL right now.And it has nothing to do with the genius loci anyway.
>>38395341Didn't Pally say we were saving the exp for something
>>38395333I want to get more FoL no matter what, but it doesn't really have anything to do with jackass forest mind.
>>38395354AA got a bunch of bonus xp that he's hoarding until it's "narratively appropriate" for us to get whatever upgrade he's planning on spending it on (probably PoB and a couple other things).
>>38395355Friend forest mind, ftfyfuture waifu forest mind maybe?
>>38395341It might help it not drain us as much for the new plants.>>38395355Hoping it's less a jackass and more that big dumb kid who doesn't know it's own strength.
>>38395354What has that to do with what I just said?We can only get gifts up the level of Favour we have with the god in question, which is 7 for Baalzamon right now.
>>38395372>It might help it not drain us as much for the new plants.That makes absolutely no sense, FoL has nothing to do with how much it drains, and it drained HP anyway, we just used PE and vitae to keep ourselves alive.
>>38395372>Hoping it's less a jackass and more that big dumb kid who doesn't know it's own strength.Even when she went totally feral, Lirael still only scavenged the dead. She could have torn Dust Town apart, but she didn't.This thing is more together than she was and it's worse behaved. It's an ass and I'd bet my nipples that it will still be an ass even if we get out of here and lecture it on why what it did was wrong.
>>38395355>with jackass forest mindBut I want to keep coming back here to create hilarious plantlife with the forest mind.That stuff is fantastic. We just need to find a way to make the link more controlled.
>>38395403We should totally make this our base after jane is gone or dead
>>38395403This thing's an asshole. I don't care if you like em, it's still an asshole. I like Baalzi and I can admit he's an asshole, I hope you can admit the same for Jungle mind.>>38395417I hope we can get another portal to our realm.
>>38395390Meant FotO sorry.>>38395395Okay anon, that bet has pretty variable value. And trying to judge a genius Loci on human standards is like trying to judge the five on human standards. Except harder because Loci rarely talk to humans.>>38395417Open another portal to our realm here?
>>38395440>I hope you can admit the same for Jungle mind.I can't admit things I don't know if they are true.Its mindset is alien, that doesn't make it a asshole.
>>38395458It using Shee as fertilizant counts as being an asshole. Well, much worse than an asshole, Quinn was an asshole, the forest is absorbing Shee.
>>38395440More likely it just doesn't realise our corporal body is important to us, since we have a "presence" like it does, it most likely assumed we don't really need that body.So, form its perspective we just did a really cool thing toegether using that flesh thing as medium for our interaction.
>>38395466>Tasting Shee's blood for the first time>Not wanting to absorb herWhat are you, human?
>>38395466If it thinks we are on or above it's level, it likely fails to realize how important our body is. After all, it's so tiny, no way someone so strong could be that small and insignificant.
>>38395458The fae's mindset is alien and they're still assholes. Baalzi's mindset is alien and he's still an asshole. This forest doesn't get a pass because it's like a giant retard who hugs puppies to death.>>38395466Are you on a phone or something?
>>38395482We should really just tell it this
>>38395494>>38395482It doesn't care. It wants all of Shee, body, mind, spirit, whatever. It will keep draining her until there is nothing left.>>38395499Just woke up.
>>38395482>>38395502Ah, yes...and let it know how weak Shee is and not as strong as the CREATOR, so something inferior and not to be obeyed...
>>38395499>The fae's mindset is alien and they're still assholes. Baalzi's mindset is alien and he's still an asshole.The faes mindset isn't actually that alien, and we know the fae perfectly well understand how people don't like being treated that way, the forest doesn't know that, and can't know that.And I disagree on baalzamon being a asshole, he hasn't done anything to us sfoar, he has actually been pretty cooperative with us.>>38395505>It doesn't care.You now that how?
>>38395515Except needing our flesh medium to interact with ther world doesn't make us weak, since clearly the creator needs to do the same thing.The fact we could warp it into things in our image, somethting the creator can't, we already proved we are better anyway.Also, we just debunked the creator thing, so it doesn't even matter anymore.
>>38395524By the way it buried Shee and is eating her to make new plants and how it stated it needs more of her.
>>38395505>It doesn't care. It wants all of Shee, body, mind, spirit, whatever. It will keep draining her until there is nothing left.You know this how?>>38395499>The fae's mindset is alien and they're still assholes. They know people don't like being treated a certain way they don't care. They're for the most part SlaaneshisBaalzi's mindset is alien and he's still an asshole. He's true to his nature, Anyone expecting him not too be is an idiot. We are careful around him for a reason.This forest doesn't get a pass because it's like a giant retard who hugs puppies to death.It's a matter of intent, Retard who does it on accident is sad, tragic and may be taught better. A retard who does it on purpose is an assshole.
>>38395554That doesn't show at all it doesn't care, in fact that it did what it could to keep the body alive proves it does care, it just doesn't get how we work.
>>38395564If that is so, then why is Shee's vitae and PE depleted and her HP is so low? The vine conencted to her is eating her, not feeding her.
>>38395564It didn't do shit to keep Shee alive beyond air, and that was literally a hollow tube jammed down her throat. The only thing that kept Shee alive was her own powers.
>>38395601>that were it not for a long hollow vine stuffed down your throat you would not be able to breatheWe are depleted because it uses Shees blood to spread her Corruption through the forest, since that that is how nutrients get spread through plants.It simply doesn't get that Shee could "die" from that.
>>38395630No, it's fully aware of the concept of death. It just does not care.
>>38395626>he didn't do anything to keep Shee alive>except for that thing he did to keep her alive.
>>38395630It's a fucking forest, it knows how both plants and animals die.>>38395640Doesn't change the fact it's still eating her.
>>38395654>It's a fucking forest, it knows how both plants and animals die.Except Shee is clearly not like any of these things, from its perspective Shee is a lot more like itself than any plant or animal around it.
>>38395640>It totally cared about us! >It provided the singular most basic need after putting us in a place that denied it naturally and neglected all other resources and care.>It cares about her so much!
I gotta say, anons making assumptions is my favorite part of this quest.The truth is we have no clue what's happening. The tube might be feeding us or eating us. The forest might listen to us or ignore us. Becoming the forest might work or it might not. It's all a moot point, now, since you lot chose to pussy out with teleporting instead of corrupting the forest like the badass mofo we are.
>>38395637It might not understand that that body is all we are. After all, it has thousands of bodies, and we're greater than it is.
You have no intention of staying trapped underground being slowly drained of your blood. You focus on your psychic abilities and despite feeling like there is a heavy weight pressing down upon you, you manage to teleport. It’s hard though, as if something is actively trying to stop you.[HP 35/147]You appear in the midst of some trees that are twisted and curled like some sort of puzzle, why did you end up here?The answer becomes clear when two people in battle armour come rushing around the side of the three and point makeshift spears at you. Their armour looks familiar (if ragged), as does their identical build.“Rainya...?” you gasp out, your voice a raspy whisper.“Shee?” says one “Is that, is that you?”You try to nod but all you succeed at doing is falling to your knees.“By the Mother!” exclaims one of the Rainyas “Shee, you’re alive, I can’t believe it you’re alive!”They both rush forward to grab you and things go dim.---The next thing you recall you are in some tiny underground room or den of some kind, having a sweet-tasting thick broth spooned into you, as a Rainya sits beside you on the bed you are lying on, all wrapped up in blankets. A dim artificial light illuminates the place.“You’re awake” says Rainya “here, eat” she spoons more of the broth into you. The two of you are alone.“What happened?” you whisper“It’s a long story” says Rainya, still feeding you“Not going anywhere...” you mumbleRainya sighs “When you disappeared we tried to find you, but then the beastmen came back in force and we had to run. We’ve been trying to stay ahead of them ever since.”You notice her face looks thinner than usual, almost gaunt.“How long?” you ask“A month I think” she says “It’s hard to keep track in here, the ammunition ran out after a few days, and the food after a week.”“I’m sorry” you say “I was trying to-”
>>38395669I'm not even sure what argument you are trying to make, if it didn't care, why would it bother with the air?That makes absolutely no sense, if it just wanted to absorb Shee, it wouldn't have bothered with that.
“It’s ok” says Rainya gently “It’s not your fault, I know you would have come back if you could, it’s not your fault.”“Is everyone ok?” you ask“We’re fine” says Rainya “tired, some scars, in desperate need of a bath and a long rest, but everyone is fine.”“Ah good” you say weakly, wondering what you would have done if anyone had died in your absence.“You stayed” you say “thank you”“I wasn’t going to abandon you” says Rainya firmly, adding “Dev and Kaelyn wanted to head back to the Hive to get *help*, though I don’t know exactly who would be able to help, but they couldn’t even get out of the forest.”You give a slow nod “too many beastmen?” you ask.Rainya shakes her head “the forest” she says, “every plant, every animal is trying to kill us, in the old forest at least.”“Then how...?” you ask“Did we survive?” says Rainya “It’s strange, a lot of strange plants started appearing wherever we spent the night, and the old forest wasn’t hostile at first, that only started after two weeks, buy that time we knew the new plants, the new forest was helping us: fruit whenever we needed it, wide leaves to hide us, long vines filled with water. By the time the old forest turned on us, the new was big enough to protect us, and it attacked any beastmen that got close.”You feel yourself drifting off “Lirael...” you mumble“She managed to contact the new forest yesterday” says Rainya “from what she says its young and excitable, but sees us as important to it somehow, I believe she’s called it Randolph.”You drift away into darkness again.---You wake up, still feeling hungry and tired, but no longer mostly dead.[HP 85/147, PE 20/48, 0 Vitae]You find your way out of your underground hideaway into the light. All around you is lush jungle, but it is all plantlife, no animals in sight.
The plants are strange, twisted into strange shapes and some have tentacles, or thick armour, or fanged maws, others bear coronas of green flame. Even in the bright sunlight dim shadows twist and writhe, some reaching towards you.As you look around you can see you are in an encampment of some kind. Sat on a rock a little ways away is Lirael, she is cross-legged and is wrapped up in vines, her eyes are closed but she doesn’t seem to be hurt. Most of her is obscured by the wrapping vine limbs, her face is only just visible.You see the Rainyas about the place, one cooking over a fire, a pair skinning a large animal. The others watching through the trees, their backs to you, looking for invaders?You see Dev sat by another fire, it looks like he’s cooking...laser gun power packs? That’s risky, it might charge them or they might explode.Kaelyn is nowhere in sight. None of them seem to have noticed you’re up yet. It looks like it’s midday, maybe?Actions?>Talk to someone (who?)>Get everyone together, planning time>Go looking for Kaelyn>Other (what?)Thanks for waiting10 minutes time as usual for vote
>>38395707>Go looking for Kaelyn
>>38395707>Talk to Lirael>Get everyone together, planning time
>>38395707>Contact the New Forest.mind
>>38395707>Talk to someone (who?)LiraelLooks like Old Forest must die. New Forest probably ok.
>>38395707>>Talk to someone (Lirael)You ok? Plants not being a problem?>Go looking for Kaelyn
>>38395707>Go looking for KaelynA fucking month lost to not change anything. Goddamnit.We need to find the odl forest and make it submit to the new one. Fucking faggot.
>>38395707>>Go looking for Kaelyn
>>38395707>Talk to someone (Lirael)
>>38395707>Talk to someone (who?)>Lirael
>>38395718>>38395723>>38395721New forest is the one that was eating us. It's the result of our Corruption fucking with the mind of the Old Forest, y'know, that thing you guys said was so horrible to do.
>>38395736Stop assuming shit.
>>38395707>>Talk to someone (who?) Lirael>>Get everyone together, planning time
Would this be an appropriate time to spend XP on the others?
>>38395736>Lirael would give something that hurts Shee nice pet namesYou are getting really retarded now.
I'm going to enjoy tearing off MirrorA's head and waving it at her patron.
>>38395736Now you are just badly trying to troll us.>“It’s strange, a lot of strange plants started appearing wherever we spent the night, and the old forest wasn’t hostile at first, that only started after two weeks, buy that time we knew the new plants, the new forest was helping us: fruit whenever we needed it, wide leaves to hide us, long vines filled with water. By the time the old forest turned on us, the new was big enough to protect us, and it attacked any beastmen that got close.”5/10, made me reply.
>the old forest wasn’t hostile at first, that only started after two weeksWanna bet this is Jane at work.she is probably torturing the forest into obedience.
>>38395707Mental contact doesn't have a range limit doesn't it? So we could contact Gambon or Tenley to see how everything is back in the Hive and the restaurant while we were gone?Because by now the Syrnians have probably already arrived and started doing their thing.
So anyone else really wanting to buff FotO now?
>>38395707>Get a drink from Rainya. +VitaeOn that note, who has Lirael been feeding from?
>>38395779She doesn't actually need to feed from anyone, even after a month she only lost 30vitae, she is just now getting hungry.And she had blood fruits, so she might not even be hungry yet.
>>38395775Hopefully with us not there they have been left alone.>>38395779I'm hoping the forest. But probably Rainya. meaning she's addicted.
>>38395779We brought a lot of blood fruit.
>>38395796>But probably Rainya. meaning she's addicted.Would people just fucking look up how addiction works already.Even if Lirael did feed from Rainya, it would only take a feeding per week or so, and thats not enough to start addiction.
>>38395779Better question is: Who has Kaelyn been feeding from.
>>38395776There are a lot of gifts we want to buff.
>>38395815All supposing Lirael hadn't been using her power in the interim. Lirael's power cost Vitae, the more she fights the more she needs to feed.>>38395822Either our friends or the forest, maybe an unlucky Beastman or two as well.
>>38395822The same hired feeders as always, I see no reason why she couldn't connect to Oneira from here.
>>38395848When did we hire them?
>>38395845>All supposing Lirael hadn't been using her power in the interim.No, even assuming she did.Liraels powers are very vitae efficient, and she has a huge vitae pool.Together with the blood fruits we brought, she can easily have made it sofar without even being hungry by now.>>38395853We told her to hire them. Already long time ago.
>>38395707I want this new forest to expand upwards and spread out across the desert, replacing the dust with lush green.
Meanwhile in Chaos Sorceress Cyborg Quest...>Fucking Mirror. "Oh yeah, attack this chick. It'll be easy, so many gifts." Bitch is like fucking cancer.>Ok, PallyB, I could deal with her magic fuck-you-waifu but this forest takeover thing is too much bullshit.>Nice job retards I told you she had Corruption.>I want to buy that thing that everyone else hates.>I bet she's dead and Mirror is jewing us out of gifts. I knew we shoulda gone with Baalzamon.
>>38395827FotO would hopefully help us with Genius Loci in the future and now.>>38395874kek
Looks like talking to Lirael won out, writing
>>38395891At best it would allow us to make animals too.
>>38395900If we level it to increase growth rate and couple it with a certain aspect we have. it'd help a lot.
>>38395874You missed>STFU about her stealing our scry power with impossibility. Mirror said he had that covered.
>>38395874>Just talk to her and offer her the deal. What's she gonna do, summon a giant monster?>Yeah, totally ignore that she's PISSED and has that Family aspect, which formed the entire basis of our last plan to kill her
>“By the Mother!” exclaims one of the RainyasYou know, I really want to buy some Ichor gifts for Rainya now to reflect her growth in that regard in this month.
>>38395868You know, this might work with impossible plants.

>>38395980When did people on this site get so sensitive?Grow a thicker skin then.

Besides running would cost us this place we worked way too hard for it.>Dude she's going fuck us up.>Please she's not even an avatar.
>>38396000>implying she isn't secretly Baalzamons Avatar>She makes bullshit vampire plants, how obvious does it need to be?
>>38395980A test then.You're all a bunch of raging hormone-using ladyboy faggots.Now, let's see what the response is to this common, quite natural 4chanese greeting.
>>38396028I wish I was.
>>38396028You aren't going to get anyone angry on /tg/ with ladyboy.Aroused, maybe.
Just watch, our new forest starts expanding from here to cover more of the world with green.
>>38396020>Nar she's just Pallybs WiSue
>>38396020>An Avatar of Baalzamon having family Aspect? Are you retarded?>She's Obviously Ichor's avatar. She used her power stealing gift to steal all those other powers from reunited and vampires.

>>38396052>let's just Arm Wrestle her. We know she's not good with Jaggantha, so what could go wrong?
You wander over to Lirael “heya sis” you say “How’re you doing?”Its several minutes before Lirael replies, her eyelids fluttering open “Shee!” she says happily “we’re sooo glad you’re ok, we thought you’d never wake up!”“Uh, we...?” you ask.Again, Liraels reply is a few minutes coming, until she speaks she just beams up at you, still wrapped in vines “Randolph and I” says Lirael “We’ve been talking a lot – yes I’ll tell her Randolph be patient – the lady with the spider-legs convinced the forest you were evil and that it had to destroy us but by the time it attacked Randolph was just starting to wake up and – I’m getting to that part, geeze! – he protected us, he’s fighting for survival against the forest and keeping us alive, yes alright! Randolph says he’s sorry the forest tried to kill you to make him and he didn’t know what was happening and he’s separate from it and please forgive him mummy?” Wait, mummy?“What have you been telling *Randolph* Lirael?” you ask.Again that weird pause “We found out that the new plants were made from you Shee” says Lirael “especially when they started growing bloodfruits, so when I started sensing Randolph I told him about that and explained mummies and daddies to him and so now he knows your his mummy and the old forest is nasty and bad” here Lirael falters “but its still his daddy I guess” and then she brightens up “and I’m his auntie.”“That’s great Lirael” you say faintly, slightly bemused at her reasoning, adding “so you haven’t been hungry at all or...?”“Oh no” says Lirael. One of the vines wrapped around her uncoils and you see a large ripe bloodfruit handing from it.“Randolph wants to know if you’re hungry” says Lirael.
>>38396052She has powers from all four elements godsShe is the AVATAR
You take the bloodfruit and bite into it carefully. It’s as sweet and tasty as those you made in your own realm, with a strange but not unpleasant aftertaste, something about the soil it grew in perhaps? Or that it was made from your own blood?“It’s nice” you say “very sweet.” Lirael smiles up at you, again that strange pause, seems *Randolph* is faster at talking and thinking than the forest itself, but not quite human-fast.Actions?>Talk to Lirael some more (topic?)>Try to contact *Randolph*>Talk to someone else (who?)>Get everyone together, planning time>Go looking for Kaelyn>Other (what?)
>>38396057>He died immediately dude. She couldn't have saved him which was the point. To make the bitch hurt.>Besides Growing plants is Ichor's domain.>>38396065She's a psi, she can buff her strength on her own. She doesn't need Jaggantha to fuck us up in CC.
>>38396088>Try to contact *Randolph*
>>38396034>>38396039Different test.So Shee got raped by the forest, Randolph is her rape-baby and old forest is the rapist, wat do?
>>38396077>mummyOh damn. Does... Does this make Ichor happy? I know this isn't really what she had in mind, but it is our kid and she wanted us to have kids.

>>38396109No anon, you got that wrong. Shees Corruption transformed the forest after she entered him.So the forest 'tried' to rape Shee, but then she reversed it and raped him.Femdom on forest reversal.You have the weirdest fetishes Pally.

>>38396173Poor Dev.Maybe we'll be able to open our own shop and put Dev in charge.King would probably like it if we had our friends be in charge of people.
>>38396173Probably fired, The Waystation likely captured by anti-magic cultists, with our realm invaded.
>>38396065>What do you mean "she brain raped the forest and had a baby">FUCKING MAGICAL REALM ICHOR BULLSHIT FUCK
>>38396173Hopefully we can use our Deception mod to convince them we are a botanist and made a small expedition on which we had accident.
>>38396206>Well at elast we lead to her restaurant captured by Sirynens and her peronsal realm invaded. That counts for something right? She has no presence in the city now.>As if it mattered the Kullen patriarch has the police out for her blood and Kulrathe is turning the city upside down to find her.>of course all this doesn't matter as she is right next to us on the FUCKING MAP!
>>38396173Well, without wanting to stire anything. But I remember more artifice would allows ut to make machines that can be brought into the real world.So that would be a good way to make them forgive Dev, if combined with a plausible excuse.Might even get us a neat partnership with the mechanics.
A mixture of get someone to fetch Kaelyn and get everyone together whilst you enjoy some mother/son time.Writing
I can't wait for Ichor to make some comment about how this only counts as one kid. Bet she has some cheeky remark about how we have a thing for family with one mind in a spread-out body.
>>38396265Between him and Lirael we have two.
>>38396230I wonder who the waifu is on Chaos Sorceress Cyborg Quest.

>>38396295Forest husbando?I wonder if she feels NTRd now.
>>38396300No, no , no She husband him after Shee raped him. Best way to get him on her side. Poor thing Doesn't know she'll dump him after she has what she wants.

>>38396414>Mirror Told us she had all of their backing at one point. Did you really expect someone with Impossibility as an aspect to go down easily? It didn't help we really fucked up our opening attack.
>Goddamnit bullshit psychich gestalt dickery.>I told you faggots. We should have tamed the War Follower, now we lost everything again.>STOP FORCING THIS SUE ON US PALLYB FUCK>this is bullshit, why are we facing the BBEG this soon in the quest, damnit.
You head over to one of the Rainyas on watch “Where’s Kaelyn?” you ask. Rainya turns to you “Shee you really should be resting” she says “you look awful.”“Thanks” you say with a half-smileRainya seems a little flustered “I mean, you look great considering what you went through, but you look sick, you should be lying down.”“I’ll live” you say “for now, can you get everyone together, including Kaelyn, I need to talk to uh, Randolph, I guess.”“Oh I couldn’t do that” protests Rainya “Kae doesn’t like to be interrupted on her hunting trips, but don’t worry, she should be back in an hour.”You open your mouth to tell her to fetch Kaelyn, but then you recall, you’ve been gone for a month, perhaps Kaelyn stepped up to take charge...either way a problem for later.You head back to Lirael and sit down next to her “Lirael can you introduce me to Randolph?” you ask.“Sure” says Lirael after a few minutes, and then you feel her mind reach out to yours and-“Mother!” says an unfamiliar voice in your mind, clearly happy to be speaking to you. It feels at little like the forest you spoke to earlier, but only in that it’s a non-human mind, the individual *feel* of it is very different.“Ah Randolph?” you ask “I’m Shee, Shee Hyul, how are you?”“I’m great!” says Randolph “Auntie Lirael has been telling me all about you and I’m so happy to meet you and Lirael said you’d make it all better and tell me what I should be doing and-”You cut the enthusiastic greeting short “All better?” you ask “what’s wrong?”“It’s Father!” you get a sense of a whining tone “the *Creator* he keeps talking about keeps telling him I need to die, or become part of him, I don’t want to do either, so he’s always at me, pushing at the edges, trying to destroy me!”“How’s that going?” you ask, more than a little concerned.
>>38396473TFW killing her nets us favor with The Reaper.
“Ugh! He’s so slow, and stupid! He takes forever to adapt to anything new, like, weeks, I’d have beaten him already!” boasts Randolph “but he’s so big and strong, I think he might be able to wear me down, maybe, but now you’re here, we can beat him together!”You decide not to respond to that and ask instead “Do you know where Kaelyn is?”“Oh sure” says Randolph and you see a picture of Kaelyn wearing stained travelling clothes...impaling the torn off head of a beastman onto a wooden spear and planting it in the ground, whistling to herself.At her back in the familiar, if unusual plants that make up Randolph, and ahead of her is the plants, and animals that make up the old forest, a border of sorts you suppose.All around her are dead beastmen, many with heads and limbs twisted at odd angles, some with burns or chunks torn off them. As you watch vines and tree-tentacles wrap around the bodies, pulling them down into the soil. You suppress a shudder at that reminder of your fate.As you watch Kaelyn heads back deeper into the forest that is Randolph.“She should be with you soon” notes Randolph.You prepare to end the connection and start your little conference when Randolph asks “Shee, are you really my mother?” It’s hard to tell, but he sounds a little...scared maybe.How do you respond?>Yes>No>Other (what?)(Yes pleases the Ichor in the Depths)
>>38396499>Yes, technically I'm your father, since the bforest gave birth to after I fertilized him
>>38396499>>YesIt is the truth. You were born from my blood.I tried to talk to your Father first, but he was tortured by the one he called the Creator (who is lying).Because of her, Father has been convinced that I need to die.
>>38396499>Yes.>"First thing we need to do is get rid of your Father. As long as he's around, he's a threat."
>>38396499>Father, actually. But for your purposes, yes.
>>38396499>Yes, In a way I amIt is the truth. You were born from my blood.I tried to talk to your Father first, but he was tortured by the one he called the Creator (who is lying).Because of her, Father has been convinced that I need to die.We either need to overpower father or convince him of *CREATORS* wrongs
>>38396499>Yes>(Yes pleases the Ichor in the Depths)This really needs to give us a Fecundity level up. Unless there's more plant stuff, I can't think of anything more appropriate.
>>38396499>>38396521Does Shee know enough biology to realise that technical truth?In that case I'm seconding it.Because its too hilarious.
>>38396499>Give him a dracanae plant.
>>38396499Uh, I expected Kaelyn to ditch the clothes and take up the tribal/amazon look, with tattoos and all.
>>38396556Also Randolph seems to have characteristics from both father and mothe
>actually, I'm your father>Luke_Skywalker_no.jpgDo people really want to go the father answer?
I wonder how dad will react when we tell him he's a grandfather now and the kid is a giant hybrid of forest and chaoswell.>>38396585No.
>>38396585I want to, I don't want to give poor education to our first child.
>>38396585Sure, its the truth.
>>38396585Mom is fine, but whatever, reallyFather might make more sense, but...
>>38396585Well, its true, so, I see no reason why not.>Yes
>>38396585Yeah, no. Mother is fine, and will confuse Lirael as well.
>>38396585Eh, sure.Don't think it makes a difference, but as a thought he picks up from Shee it would be pretty funny.
>>38396585Nah, Mother is good.>>38396573>delicious tribal warrior KaelynI would have liked that.
>>38396585Explain how the mother/father thing works but say we like mother.on that note we have another mum for him to meet maybe.
Is there a particular reason why the opposition to the joke?I mean, its literally and objectively true.
ok, mother it is
>>38396585>NoWhy confuse the thing?
Christz, people actually samefag this shit?Both people samefagging No and yes should start looking really hard at what the fuck they are doing here.
>>38396624>, and will confuse Lirael as wellLirael knows pretty well how it works, at worst she would have teased Shee about it.
I wonder what Rainya will say about our unfaithfullness...
>>38396703>Shee, why didn't you invite? This was so kinky...
“Yes” you say “I am” you briefly wonder about telling him about how he was made from your blood and the body of the old forest confuses the mother/father labels a little, but why confuse him, he’s only a month old.“Thank you” he says simply “mother...”You close off the connection and are left with a lingering feeling of longing, and loneliness.You and Lirael both rise and head over to where the Rainyas are cooking, seems that lunch is ready. You notice that both vines and their shadows reach after you and Lirael plaintively.“Dev?” says Rainya “Dev leave the power packs alone, you’ve cooked them too many times already.”Grumbling, Dev pokes the power packs out of the fire and heads over “Shee?” he says with a look of surprise “You’re up, wow, good for you, are you feeling ok?”You shake your head and laugh “You didn’t notice?” you ask “I’ve been sat with Lirael for a couple of hours”.Dev shrugs and blushes “caught up in my work I guess” he says. He is saved from further embarrassment by the arrival of Kaelyn.“Shee darling” she says, hugging you “so glad you’re back, how’re you feeling?”You know you will get tired of that question soon.“I’m fine” you say “bit hungry, bit tired, but fine.”“Excellent” says Kaelyn “lets eat, and then plan.” Well someone is in a take charge mood...As you sit down and eat, Kaelyn tells the Rainyas, Dev and Lirael what’s she has been doing, where the beastmen tried to invade, and what weapons they were using.As she talks you feel the liquid power of the Ichor in the Depths roiling within you.Accept Gift?>Y/NDC 25
>>38396812go and stay go
I wonder why Rainya uses spears instead of her energy weapons, they don't cost anything.And the massively larger damage should easily make up for any anti-energy wards the beastmen might have.
Yes winsPlease roll 1d20+13 Willpower
>>38396812That's a good point but I stand by my vote
Rolled 15 + 13 (1d20 + 13)>>38396831Rolling
Rolled 18 + 13 (1d20 + 13)>>38396831
Rolled 14 + 13 (1d20 + 13)>>38396831YOLO
>>38396831Curious to see what DC25 on Family gives us.Even Form of the Deep Mother was only 20.
>>38396821no useriously, can't you handle one anon disagreeing with you? I am not that guy btw
>>38396874I am not entirely into the mechanics here; where do you see its DC25?
>>38396895At the bottom of >>38396753 in the spoilered text.
>>38396874FotDM was a 2nd tier DC after getting 10 points of favor meaning it's a tier-3 Gift, if I understand this right.So we're about to get a tier-4 Gift.>>38396895End of the post on whether to accept the Gift or not, OP lists the DC in a spoiler.
>>38396907Yes, I know?Not sure what you're trying to say here. We don't know any Tier-4 gifts, hence why I'm wondering.Might be we just get multiple levels of Tier-3 gifts.
>>38396916>We don't know any Tier-4 giftsI think RoS is one. Or maybe it's tier 3.
>>38396922Of Ichor, obviously.RoS might be a Tier 4 gift, since it doesn't have more levels in difference to FotDM.But I'm somewhat doubtful he would just hand us one, unless it was literally the only gift he could have given us in that moment.
>>38396942I think it was part of a scheme to have us eradicate the shadow vamps. Give us shadow vamp murder godmode, subtly nudge us into a path where we want to kill them all, maybe get a new clan out of it and a totally-not-a-second-avatar.Win-win.
Randolph's a cutie.
You control the raging torrent of power within you, and can shape it into 1 of 3 formsControlled Shift – you gain 40XP to spend upon Gifts of the Ichor onlyMother of the ForestYou can animate and control plants. This selection grants you the first 3 ranks in this giftAt Mother of the Forest 3 you can create walking plants called Forest Guardians from nearby plants, up to 6 metres tall, with strength and constitution of 40 each, and damage reduction of 10, the Forest Guardians stats are otherwise determined by the QM, this requires plants at least 3 metres in height. You can summon up to 2 Forest Guardians as a single action. This costs 10 Psychic energy per guardian summoned.Nurture the Lost SoulThe Ichor in the Depths has built upon the Segmented Soul power to create her own innovation.This power links the targets soul to yours. If they are killed then their soul is transported to your Realm, but they are unable to leave it, since they are dead. You can bring them back to life at a cost of 50 psychic energy, this takes 1 hour. Once bought back to life they can leave your realm normally.This power cannot be used on a Segmented Soul, nor does it allow you to sacrifice a linked soul for your own survival.Abilities and powers that trap or destroy a targets soul can prevent targets of this power from being bought back.Using this power to link to a soul initially, takes a full day, and 100 psychic energy. Only targets listed as those you care for under Strength of the Mother or Family Aspect can be targeted, but targets need not be willing, though they must be present the whole day. This power *can* be dispelled and ended, but the DC is 100 higher than normal, and you will be immediately aware if this power ends.10 minutes to discuss, then a vote
>>38397097>At first I was "Woah,, of course we take MotFAnd then I saw Nurture of the Lost Soul.Well, damn.
>>38397097Dem gifts... Oh man...I really want that MotF. But NtLS is so fucking good.Fuck.
>>38397097Well, mother of the forest is awesome, however there is currently a decided lack of plants currentlyNuture of the lost soul also is nice protection for our allies and family.40 free xp is nice too.
>>38397097Do we need to buy the Segmented Soul power to use Nurture the Lost Soul?
>>38397097>This power cannot be used on a Segmented SoulClarify please. Does this mean ANY segmented soul (like Kae) or does it mean it just can't be used on our own?
>>38397097Fuck... i never been so divided on what to get until nowNtLS seems so good but MotF is really useful for right now
>>38397097Those ungodly good.Now I REALLY want to get higher with King and/or Flexo.Because, wow that NotLS.
>>38397171I'm wondering, since this links to the users soul, are there side-effects from using it while in gestalt?Since the gestalt is its own entity.
Mother of the forest looks like a tier 3 power.NtLS looks like a tier 4 power.Both are amazing.>>38397141How long do the Forest Guardians live for Pally? And do higher ranks allow us to give them intelligence?
>>38397198no side effects, no
>>38397161True. NtLS will be useful forever though.
>Implying we aren't going to take the 40xp and spend it all on Tentacles.
>>38397228On the other hand, we can't use it right now anyway, and we will have other chances to get it later.
>>38397220>How long do the Forest Guardians live for Pally?Just the scene/combat, an expansion allows for longer duration (even permanent)>And do higher ranks allow us to give them intelligence?An expansion does, yes.Ranks themselves are just more/bigger Guardians
>>38397097Is NtLS a 1 time offer here or would there be chances for it in the future?
>>38397235No anon, don't you see?NtLS is like tentacles for the soul.Invisible tentacles that forever embrace our family and keep them save.
>>38397228Being able to ressurrect our allies is useful forever as well.
>>38397228True.It also depends how much of the planet we end up terraforming too.Randolf is much smarter then the prior spirit. We might end up creating large sections of the world as a jungle or garden world.Wonder how much he can spread stuff.>>38397240So we can make our own plant people then.
5 minute vote, you know how it works>Controlled Shift>Mother of the Forest>Nurture the Lost Soul
>>38397240Pally why you making the choice harder?!?
>>38397236Very rarely, since it's a T4 Gift which means we need a DC 25 Ichor Gift to be on offer.
>>38397260>Nurture the Lost Soul
>>38397260>Nurture the Lost SoulThe world's to damn dangerous not to.
>>38397260>>Nurture the Lost Soul
>>38397260>Nurture the Lost Soulthe other one is easier to come by,being lower rank and all
>>38397250>Is NtLS a 1 time offer here or would there be chances for it in the future?That depends why do you think you got it this time?
>>38397260>Nurture the Lost Soul>>38397265I suspect the DC is based on how much we please Ichor, so we just need t get Rainya pregnant when we get home and BAM NtLS for free.
>>38397260>Mother of the Forest
>>38397260>Mother of the ForestSo want.>>38397292Does Ichor approve of bringing life to the world in general? She may have preference for oceans but she has a spot for primordial jungles too?Turning a dust world into a world full of life?
>>38397260Nurture the Lost Soul
>>38397320>Does Ichor approve of bringing life to the world in general? She may have preference for oceans but she has a spot for primordial jungles too?>>Turning a dust world into a world full of life?Yes
>>38397320>Turning a dust world into a world full of life?this would definitely please ichor
>>38397292Not sure if we can afford to spend the four days it would take to link everyone.Especially since I don't think its implausible our master sorceress can trap or destroy souls.
>>38397097I'm guessing that Nurture doesn't have higher ranks?
>>38397384Good point, no it does not.
I'm kinda sad NtLS is a thing, I dislike it when death becomes less frightening, especially in this case. Since fear of losing her family was a strong factor for Shee, that is kind of lost now.Not gone, obviously, but definitly far less frightening.
>>38397434She's going to become a god. Having some power over death doesn't really bother me.
>>38397434mind you death hurts, we dont like them hurt, and there is still shit out there that can really KILL them...this just make small fries less dangerous, the real baddies can fuck it up
>>38397464Yeah, and we have our Aspects to cover that.Which were already capable of brining back the dead, in theory.Which was really enough.
You sit down and eat with your friends as Kaelyn talks about the beastman attacks. After a breakdown of how many have attacked and from which directions she finishes by saying “really, I think they’re slackening off, falling back to probing attacks rather than serious attempts, you remember what happened last time?”Lirael scowls, Dev and the Rainyas nod grimly as Kaelyn adds “so we need constant perimeter watch, Lirael I’m relying on you to spot the beast before it ever gets close, ok? I want you and Randolph in 24 hour contact ok?”Lirael nods, adding “Randolph chased off the War Follower before, and he can do it again”.“I know he can” says Kaelyn gently “but he got badly hurt last time, and this time she might have protected him against Randolphs attacks, so as soon as it gets close, I say will kill it. We don’t want it getting to close to the Heart after all.”Your allies all nod in agreement.Your response?>Sure>Kaelyn, thank you for taking over in my absence, but I’m back now and I’m in charge (this pleases the King of Hell)>The Heart?>Suggest alternate plan (what?)
>>38397482>Kaelyn, thank you for taking over in my absence, but I’m back now and I’m in charge (this pleases the King of Hell)>I think we can turn the War Follower to our advantage, its a beast, but it has a mind, and can be influenced.
>>38397482>>Kaelyn, thank you for taking over in my absence, but I’m back now and I’m in charge (this pleases the King of Hell)>>The Heart?
>>38397482>Kaelyn, thank you for taking over in my absence, but I’m back now and I’m in charge (this pleases the King of Hell)>The Heart?>The War Follower is too big to just kill, its too costly to even try, especially since I mgiht have use for him again like last time. I want to see if I can't deal with him like with the plants here.We might want to buy higher levels of Fecundity and see if we can Corrupt the War Follower.
>>38397482>The Heart?After explanations are provided>Kaelyn, thank you for taking over in my absence, but I’m back now and I’m in charge (this pleases the King of Hell)>>38397534Might be a good idea, it'd buff Randolph too I'm sure.
>>38397534You can stop adding random powers you like into plans and acting like they're an actual part of it any minute now.
>>38397482>Kaelyn, thank you for taking over in my absence, but I’m back now and I’m in charge (this pleases the King of Hell)>The Heart?>I think we can turn the War Follower to our advantage, its a beast, but it has a mind, and can be influenced.
>>38397568Anon. Fecundity allowed us to use Corruption to transform the local plant life.Higher levels of Fecundity allow us to create animals like we create plants.Do I need to draw you a picture so you understand why it makes corrupting animal life a very real posibility?
>>38397568Not that guy, but I can see where he's coming from. Fecundity does say that higher levels do animal creation stuff, but I'm not really sure why he thinks it'd make it easier to corrupt the War Follower.
>>38397482>Kaelyn, thank you for taking over in my absence, but I’m back now and I’m in charge (this pleases the King of Hell)Holy shit, the King of Hell option is actually winning.I love you all hellbros.
>>38397591>Fecundity does say that higher levels do animal creation stuff, but I'm not really sure why he thinks it'd make it easier to corrupt the War Follower.You mentioned the reason yourself.Maybe we can already do it without, but its hardly a stretch to think something that allows us to make animal life, would give us greater ability to influence animals.
>>38397596Well This is something Shee(who is a bit of a control freak) would say. The fact we hit king 10 with it helps too.
>>38397596I was about to ask why we're not letting Kaelyn grow into this role but if it means that much to you I'll find something to complain about later anon.
>>38397482>The Heart?>I think we can turn the War Follower to our advantage, its a beast, but it has a mind, and can be influenced.
>>38397482>The Heart?Remember guys, being arrogant like that hurts people's feelings and creates resentment.
>>38397659Shee isn't much of a control freak in regards to her family, at least not in that sense.She has however a history of having to put Kaelyn into her place and being rather annoyed with her.
>>38397670When we actually have more than one squad of people working for us, Kae would be first pick to lead them.>>38397688That too.
>>38397482>Kaelyn, thank you for taking over in my absence, but I’m back now and I’m in charge (this pleases the King of Hell)>The Heart?>>38397688Yes, but Kaelyn stepped in when needed, like a good XO. No one else really is able to do that.Now we are just letting her know Captain Shee is back.
>>38397717>No one else really is able to do that.I'm not sure about that, but it is true that her effort is appreciated. And we can tell her that too and thank her for the input, but Shee is in charge.And there should be no doubt about that, after a month Kae might have gotten a bit too accustomed to the role.
Please roll 1d20+9Can you guess why?Also, accept Gift of King of Hell?>Y/NDC 20
Rolled 8 + 9 (1d20 + 9)>>38397745>Y

>>38397756oh if we get no more rolls I'll have to use this...
>>38397756Welp. If pally doesn't accept rolls that aren't modified you are such an ass hole.
>>38397756Are you kidding me?
>>38397756Why didn't you apply mods anon?
>>38397688>She has however a history of having to put Kaelyn into her place and being rather annoyed with her.>>38397717>Yes, but Kaelyn stepped in when needed, like a good XO. No one else really is able to do that.>Now we are just letting her know Captain Shee is back.I just don't want to drive her away. She had alot more autonomy in her old life.>>38397745Could we just auto Yes DCs of 25 or lower?
So we tentacle rape now?
>>38397791>Could we just auto Yes DCs of 25 or lower?Nah, its not implausible we could fail a DC of 25.>>38397803Yes, we need to tentacle rape Kae to assert our dominance over the pack again.
>>38397772From that post r-right? ... Pally?
Pally I'd be willing to burn exp to let that 20 count.
>>38397869If we are willing to burn XP, we could just buy two Ranks of Charisma.That would be enough already.
>>38397819It's not implausible for us to fail DCs of 20 or lower, even with the +13 mod. It's happened before.
no take backs, it's locked in now, writing.Please roll 1d20+13 to shape gift
Rolled 17 + 13 (1d20 + 13)>>38397879True, but far less likely then 25.>>38397882>ib4 we fail this one
>>38397819I am fine with that. I bet that making Kae live tentacles will help the Kae x Rainya relationship.
Rolled 5 + 13 (1d20 + 13)>>38397882
Rolled 4 + 13 (1d20 + 13)>>38397882
Rolled 9 + 13 (1d20 + 13)>>38397882I remembered the modifier this time.
>>38397899Nope, we got the tentacles here and no one else.
Well that was close...
Since we hit King 10 we need to buff will.
>>38397955Agreed. And since we hit 10, it should only cost 4 this time.
>>38397952I would have actually liked to see a King random mutation.I think we can consider Willpower 10 auto-purchased, anyone disagreeing?
I'm hoping for Form of the King of Hell for dem stronger psychic powers. How about y'all?
>>38398040Form of the King of Hell doesn't give stronger psychic powers as far as we know.It gives mutations and fire-breath.
>>38398081>Form of the King of Hell>You gain a demonic appearance and grow wings, allowing you to fly. At higher levels your form becomes more and more demonic, you would also gain claws, the ability to breathe fire and stronger magical (psychic) abilities, and finally the ability to travel to Hell.
>>38398090Well, fuck me then.My bad. Forgot about that part.Although it will most likely only improve Telepathy powers.
We have gotten screwed by the dice multiple times recently.
>>38398124Thats why we roll dice, yes.It would be terrible if we would never get screwed by them.
Maybe 19 was enough to not have a giant screaming match with Kae right now?
>>38398150No way, it was at least DC20.Kae was already pretty eager to pick a fight with Shee about Shees supposed "controlling", and that was when she wasn't actually controlling at all.
>>38398150Unlikely. Giant screaming match is a rather crude way of arguing, it will probably be massive passive-aggressive stuff.>>38398173Shee has always been controlling, in a way.
>>38398201>Shee has always been controlling, in a way.Not towards Kae when she made those accusations.
>>38398150I figure we just entered the Gauntlet of Fellowship rolls again.So at worst we have to buy those ranks in Charisma and try again if Kae refuses to be reasonable.
