You are Shee Hyul, rebel leader, psychic and Reunited. Your world is ruled by inhuman creatures and this has gone on far too long, it’s time to fight back.Character Sheet http://pastebin.com/fYSgcZdERules http://pastebin.com/LEEi5A3uArchives https://archive.moe/tg/search/username/Pally/type/op/And http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Psychic%20Rebel%20QuestSetting http://pastebin.com/95D5RNhPBusiness http://pastebin.com/NwspZmKwAllies http://pastebin.com/yVgtiFeuAlly Powers http://pastebin.com/Xm6UGDyXQM Twitter https://twitter.com/anAspiringQMQM Askfm http://ask.fm/AnAspiringQM“Stay here” you tell Rainya and Kaelyn “Kaelyn heal her if you can, and both of you look after each other.”“Good luck” says Kaelyn, as she tends to Rainya.“Shee no!” yells Rainya as you head off into the darkness alone, Inside your head she keeps pleading to let her come with you –Rainya please!- you finally snap at her –Not now, we can argue later just, please be with me this one time ok?--Ok...- comes the response as you head towards the group of minds you are tracking –I just, I just want you to come back to me Shee.--I will- you promise –I will-Finally you can sense the group up ahead, in a larger cavern. You advance cautiously, your hammer and fists at the ready, prepared to react to any attack. As you emerge into the cavern you can see a raised plinth with one Jane Vindel atop it. And another dozen of her in front of it. There’s chaos magic here, so much its hard to tell what spells there are, the air is thick with it. There’s no physical traps or barrier that you can see, but there’s probably lots of magical ones.“You have been frustratingly difficult to kill” comments the Jane atop the plinth.“Why did you have to kill Ash” you rumble out in your deep voice “he did nothing to you.”
Old thread >>38461935Jane shrugs “A useful pawn, nothing more” she says “chosen only because you cared for him, that’s what all of those who favour the Ichor do to their loved ones of course, make them targets.”“Whereas you” you say, pointing your hammer at her “are the only target here, so are you going to die fighting, or just die?”Jane laughs “you stupid, ignorant child” she says “you lost the moment you came in here, you’re outnumbered, and facing a vastly smarter foe, you don’t have a chance.”“Really?” you say “because so far I’ve beaten everything you’ve thrown at me, now I’m going to make sure you never hurt my family again.”“Your threats are tiresome” says Jane “are you finished posturing?”Actions?>Talk (saying what?)>Attack (fists and hammer)>Use Power (what?)>Other (what?)
>>38466298>Talk (saying what?)>To the other Janes>You don't have to die for her, she can't win against me on her own. Maybe you can feel me, but how many of you are willing to die in the process, stand aside, and you could be free. I want nothing from you, except her one head. I can remake things, I can remake you, if you want.
>>38466298Something something Corruption on the Jane duplicates...Someone who knows how to things better please help
>>38466298>Use Power>Ruler of Shadow
>>38466298>>38466375>>38466379These. I don't understand corruption either. But Something something. Free the duplicates of their master.. host whatever.They can all fight over who is the real slim shady.
>>38466379That's kinda dumb, anon.
>>38466298>To the other Janes>You don't have to die for her, she can't win against me on her own. Maybe you can kill me, but how many of you are willing to die in the process, stand aside, and you could be free. I want nothing from you, except her one head.

>>38466400Will the real Jane please stand up?
>>38466426Surely they've entertained the ideal of freedom or self determination?
>>38466448Which is why that Suggestion works, it wouldn't if they don't consider it a sensible thing to do.They are just too afraid, so they need a push.
>>38466288>>38466371I would back this up.Maybe keep delying, if we get rainya and kae to follow after healing.It seems weird these duplicates hate and fear the original. They must not be like rainyas duplicates, instead some sort of sentient simulcrum.
>>38466472They were probably made with the Simulacrum seed.
>>38466466They've got mental defences, and I don't want to go all-out on something that may-or-may-not have any chance of success.
>>38466498We got easily through the mental defenses of the other one too.And this isn't really all-out.
>>38466371>Maybe you can feel meUps, was supposed to be "fell me"
Speech is a go, but will you include the Suggestion option?>Y/N5 minute vote
>>38466514It still took a substantial amount of a finite resource and that was with Impossibility.Failure on the Suggestion would mean detection, meaning the entire attempt could fail from it's results.
>>38466573YBut not as the first thing
>>38466573>NI don't feel like spending 30+ psychic energy, most of what we have left, on a move of such debatable worth.
>>38466607You might wanna vote on that, since indicisiveness seems to reign here currently.

>>38466868I'd rather get 5, because being able to no-sell most of her spells for 2 PE/Vitae/HP is pretty fantastic. 4 would be okay, though.>>38466849Adaptive Mutation would also be good.
Getting Invulnerable Hide down to 2 cost per use and comboing it with Blood Talons would be pretty cool.

You address Jane’s doubles “You don't have to die for her, she can't win against me on her own. Maybe you can kill me, but how many of you are willing to die in the process, stand aside, and you could be free. I want nothing from you, except her one head. I can remake things, I can remake you, if you want.”The Jane’s standing before you pause for a moment before the one above them says “what are you waiting for, get her!”They are shocked out of their contemplation and attack. Although your words seem to have touched them to some extent, they don’t seem willing to disobey their maker.As the one atop the plinth waits and watches, the other twelve launch brilliant bolts of energy at you. Some of these simply fail as they approach you, but seven manage to hit you.Using your power to resist harm, most of the attacks that hit you simply dissipate against your hide.[PE 34/57, Lirael Vitae 20/160, Psiwell 1/90]Two however you simply endure as best you can as they char your flesh, filling the air with the smell of burning meat. It hurts a great deal, but its not the worst pain you’ve had to put up with today.[HP 103/181]You’re a 12ft-tall 4-armed muscled giantess, wielding a hammer in one hand...that’s as big as you are.Seeing you still standing, the Jane on the plinth yells “Well? Kill her!”Actions?>Talk (saying what?)>Attack (fists and hammer)>Use Power (what?)>Other (what?)BattlefieldJane Doubles (12)Real Jane (1)

>>38467171Should we activate Blink? Is that a thing that would be good to do here?
>>38467244in an area with no teleportation allowed you would need to use Impossibility, but it is an option.
>>38467171>Attack (fists and hammer) Real JaneHow much vitae do we still have?>>38467227Too late now, not enough resources anymore.>>38467244Blink is still teleportation, I'm not sure how that works with anti-teleport wards.
>>38467263>How much vitae do we still have?Your vitae is full, but without Primacy of Blood you cannot use it in Titanic Form

>>38467305>>38467354That would only target one double unless you want to burn all of our PE and start eating into HP to target all of them.Also that we would need to spend XP to get Suggestion.
>>38467343>The suggestion must be worded in such a manner as to make the activity sound reasonable.>>38467357We got a PE pool of 900 to use.And we are in gestalt with Lirael and can therefore use Suggestion. Really now anon.
>>38467375>We got a PE pool of 900 to use.As soon as we overdraw even a single point, the well will shut down. So no.>And we are in gestalt with Lirael and can therefore use Suggestion.I actually forgot about that.
Attacking the real Jane in melee it is. Please roll 4d20 for attacks.Only 5 energy blasts hit you this time.Use Invulnerable Hide on how many?>0-5
>>38467375>We got a PE pool of 900 to use.>I want to shut down one of our greatest resources for months in a quest with this kind of pacing
Rolled 1, 13, 5, 9 = 28 (4d20)>>38467408>As soon as we overdraw even a single point, the well will shut down. So no.Yeah, of course. The well shutting down is of course far worse then us getting killed here.Makes sense.We can't even use the wells effect here and its +3 is not really relevant.>>384674255

>>384674255Take them from Randolph
>>38467451>>38467474Nope. It's just stupid, because of the aforementioned pacing. We could go from everything's fine to extreme danger in *hours*, a few days is a long time and we can only overdraw *once* before it shuts down.>>38467444Using it would be better than death, but using it to fuel Suggestion would be a waste.>>38467534He has 1 point left and the well would shut down from that, stop.

>>38467561>We could go from everything's fine to extreme danger in *hours*, a few days is a long time and we can only overdraw *once* before it shuts down.And we can't even use him while in the Hive so it doesn't fucking matter. Stop being retarded just because you forgot about something.And the well shutting down only means we don't get the +3 bonus and the daily 90, we cans till draw from the pool of 900.
>>38467425>>38467498Seconding>Take them from Randolph
>>38467561>Using it would be better than death, but using it to fuel Suggestion would be a waste.>Using it to potentially win this fight for us is a wasteNo, your posts are a waste of postcount.
Stopping 4 it is.Interesting discussion, so 5 minute voteDraw any of the 32 points needed from Psiwell?>Y/NIf yes, please indicate how many
>>38467598>And we can't even use him while in the Hive so it doesn't fucking matter.It does still matter, because some of us might want to do something with the well, like expanding it, or the forest, without having to wait for a dozen threads.>Stop being retarded just because you forgot about something.I didn't forget anything other than the Gestalt ability access.>And the well shutting down only means we don't get the +3 bonus and the daily 90, we cans till draw from the pool of 900.We don't know this, and it doesn't really make sense to assume we can still draw from a well that's shut down in such a high risk situation. It's also possible that Randolph wouldn't be able to maintain the mental link without his heart, meaning we'd lose access to the well once we overdraw the first time, even if total shut down wouldn't prevent that.>>38467665The chances of that are phenomenally low.
>>38467667NoIf they do more, can we draw from out health instead?
>>38467713>can we draw from our health instead?Yes
>>38467667>Y10>>38467678>three days will take a dozen threadsNo. We timeskip constantly.
>>38467798>three days will take a dozen threadsNot three days, but it could take out-of-canyon months before the psiwell turns back on if we wind up being able to take more than this one usage.>We timeskip constantly.Sometimes, usually for minor or dull things, but we still don't tend to cover more than a day or two in most threads.
You charge forwards, the spider-legged sorceresses in your way have the choice of getting out of the way, or being trampled, they wisely choose the former. In a single bound you are atop the plinth and assault Jane Vindel with fists and hammer.She manages to survive your first punch, but with the second she falls back limply and your final punch and hammer blow reduces her to paste.You are victorious!Or are you...?As before a dozen energy blasts come your way, again some simply fail, but several strike you. Once again you use your powers to shrug most of them off.[PE 20/57, Lirael Vitae 17/160, Psiwell -14/90]But one you simply survive.[HP 75/183]Around Lirael you feel the Psiwell shut down and Randolph plaintively wail –Mother why? My Heart is gone!--It’ll come back- Lirael reassures him –Don’t worry Randolph--But, it’s gone!- complains Randolph in your head.“Jane Vindel is dead!” you bellow at the doubles “You are free, why do you still fight?”None of them show any sign of backing down, a final compulsion or spell perhaps?

With the real Jane Vindel hiding in amidst the doubles you think its best to identify her before you slaughter the rest of them. If for no other reason that even in your titan form you are beginning to tire.You reach out with your psychic abilities and hammer into the mind of the closest one, trying to discover which one of these doubles is the real thing.[PE 4/57]Although the one you have chosen isn’t the real one, you now know which one it is, acting just like any of the others in the real ranks.Before they can unleash any other magics you blast the Janes with your own psychic power, draining their life force to restore your power, and your health. You make sure to catch the real Jane Vindel in the area.As you do so she laughs maniacally “Finally!” she says “you use a power *I* can control!” You feel your grip on your psychic power slipping as she attempts to take control and turn it back upon you. Around both of you the air twists as reality itself starts to change.Aspect: MagicFor a few brief seconds the two of you struggle, to see who will live...and who won’t. Finally your own impossible nature proves stronger and the life forces of the Janes flow into you.[HP/PE full] And not just those within the area you affected, but all of them, as the real Jane draws upon them in a desperate effort to keep herself alive, finally she falls.The blades of force swirling around you disappear, huh, you had forgotten they where there, since they were doing nothing to you.
All around are the dead Jane Vindels, except, one still stirs weakly, the real one. You stomp over and look down at her. This is the woman who killed Ashley, who would have killed other members of your family simply to distract or weaken you, and yet, lying on the floor she seems so helpless, so lost. You raise your hammer, for what she has done, there can be only one response. And yet you don’t feel hatred, or anger, only...satisfaction.“How?” she asks “I had power over magic itself, I had the favour of the Infinite Mirror, how did you beat me?”[Forged by Battle XP 9 gained]Your respose?>No talking, only hammering (kill her)>Say something (what?)>Other (what?)It is assumed that you will kill her, unless write-ins request otherwise.
>>38468751R.I.P Janes. I'm sorry we couldn't save you.I wanted a Jane clone minion...>>38468773>No talking, only hammering (kill her)>Because I have my family.
>>38468773>Say something (what?)Free them, and I will let you live
>>38468773>Other (what?)Corruption. Corruption the everloving fuck out of her. Enslavement. (This pleases Baalzamon?)
>>38468773Mirror's a cheating little bitch and the other four know it, that's how.>when she opens her mouth to beg, just raise our hand. "Stop!">Raise the hammer"Hammer time!"
>>38468773>No talking, only hammering (kill her)>>38468805They're dead.>>38468817Hell no, bitch dies. I might've wanted to save the clones, but she doesn't get to live, not for her crimes, against both us and her...selves.
>>38468773>No talking, only hammering (kill her)>>384688051) No we wouldn't.2) She killed them all trying to save herself.
You really don't want seer powers?
>>38468817>This pleases Baalzamon?It does
>>38468773I kinda wanna say some line about how maybe your death will send the Mirror a message about pettiness, but I also kinda just want to Gallagher her head.
>>38468862Not if the cost is letting her live.
>>38468862I do, but people probably think it's too evil or something.
>>38468773>No talking, only hammering (kill her)I might be inclined to some speach about power of friendship and all that stuff. But really?We had a vampire angel duaghteru to boost us and she didn't. Thats pretty much what made the difference.
>>38468788Yeah, a minion would have been interesting.>>38468751Were we able to feed any pe back to the well with the drain.
>>38468840>>38468834Good point, I am an idiot.Then >>38468809Submit
>>38468894No, I just don't think letting her live is a good idea.I would have kep one of the clones, but sadly we couldn't anymore.And I can't see Shee forgiving her here, thats just not how she works.
>>38468919I don't think hollowing out her mind with a psychic melon baller really counts as forgiveness, but alright.
>>38468817Mind raping her with corruption would be kinda weird.I vote for it to be put to a vote. Although i thought we could not enslave other reunited due to rules.
>>38468862Mirror would do some rules lawyering bullshit to get away with taking back most of her gifts, that one in particular, if we corrupted her, and any other option is fallible and can only result in horrible betrayal. Honestly, Pally letting us get our hands on that ability was never an option.Also, bitch needs to die. There is no part of Shee's character that would let me reconcile sparing her for her sins.>>38468902So...the power of love and family?>>38468943This is the vote, you're losing it.
>>38468943Enslaving them is encouraged. It's the only way to get a "win" scored without killing them.
>>38468943>Although i thought we could not enslave other reunited due to rules.Enslaving other Reunited is a win condition, so its definitly possible.>>38468953>So...the power of love and family?Well, more the power of vampire angel loli daughterus, but I guess the others did .. something I guess.
>>38468773>No talking, only hammering (kill her)Brutally.Sad that Void powers didn't awaken in this fight. I was hoping we'd get put in a corner and it'd happen.
>>38468962Didn't we swear to kill her though?
>>38468992Well, we never said "when" though, we would benefit from keeping her long enough alive to hand her to good old Grandpa Kellen, but I don't think we can keep her for that long.
>>38468992I could swear we just swore to make her pay or get vengeance or something. I can go check though since I'm not 100% on this.
>>38468989>Sad that Void powers didn't awaken in this fight. I was hoping we'd get put in a corner and it'd happen.I'm mostly sad we didn't get to kill her in Form of the Deep Mother.
>>38468992>>38469037>“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.”Mindrape into slaery definitly counts as making her pay, in my book.
>>38468992I wonder if Hell Dad and/or Sea Mom will be proud of us for fulfilling a revenge oath once we've actually finished fulfilling it.>>38468978>Well, more the power of vampire angel loli daughterusLove. And. Family.Everyone was helpful at some point or another, Lirael and Randolph were just the only ones that could aid us so directly.
>>38468773Well for what it's worth I vote corrupting her horribly.
I wonder how assblasted Mirror's gonna be about being the first to lose two avatars, even after borderline-cheating like this.
>>38469087>Love. And. Family.If that makes you feel better, we can go with that.>>38469079I actually want to reserve the mindrape into slavery as karmic punishment for Jade.>>38469106We don't really know if and how many of the others have already died.
>>38469106I think mirror would be more upset if it's avatar was our puppet. Talk about a different path.
>>38469106At least 400% mad.
>>38468773>Other (what?)Rip out her Aspect.
With your hammer raised high above your head, you look down at the prone woman, small, weak. Is this what you were afraid of? You think about saying something about the power of friendship, the value of allies, of knowing that people who trust you are there to help you, about how leadership is better than tyranny.You doubt she would even understand what you were saying.With a single smooth motion you bring your hammer down, pulping her body and driving your hammer into the stone underneath her.“That’s one down Ash” you say quietly “There will another one soon.”You hear Rainya and Kaelyn enter the hall behind you, Rainya looks healed “Shee!” she yells, running up to you, you bend down and sweep her up in your muscular arms as she hugs you tearfully “You’re ok” she says “You’re ok...”“Of course I am” you say “I said I would be” Rainya just cries, held in your arms like a child, hugging you.Kaelyn looks down at the mess that was Jane “doesn’t seem so impressive does she” she says critically.In the depths of your mind you hear the Ichor offer her congratulations “you have done well child, by the terms of the contest, the Infinite Mirror is required to give you a Gift, but he may offer a weak one, or one too potent for you. As per our agreement, you may select the Gift of another.”Who do you want a Gift from?>Baalzamon>Ichor in the Depths >Infinite Mirror>Jagganatha>King of Hell>None
>>38469179>Infinite MirrorBRING IT MIRRORWe need another gift from him for a new Aspect, if more than three are possible.
>>38469179>Infinite MirrorThat sumbitch needs to give us a gift.
>>38469179>Infinite MirrorAnd look smug while asking for it.We are totally gonna fail this one, but I don't care.
>All these Infinite Mirror votesMaybe Shee's next Aspect should be Such Defiance.
>>38469179>King of Hell
>>38469179>As per our agreement, you may select the Gift of another.”Actually, our agreement was we onyl get to choose if the Mirror refuses to give us a gift.So as long as he doesn't, we shouldn't be allowed to pick.>Infinite Mirror
>>38469179>JagganathaI just wanna see what he offers since we pretty much only used his gifts and our own powers for the fight.
>>38469251I think mom might be doing some rules dickery of her own to try and help us.
>>38469255We should really get Might 3 before our next Jagga gifting.
>>38469179>Infinite MirrorGrab a power from janes cold dead, mushy hands.
>>38469179>Ichor in the Depths
>>38468773Just finish it. Anything else is unneessary hazard.
>>38469389Honestly, DC 35 would be way better.But he can't make it impossibloe, so it will either be 30 or 15.
"I think the Infinite Mirror should pay his due Deep Mother" you say respectfully.The Ichor in the Depths chuckles at thisThe Infinite Mirror grudgingly offers a small portion of his power.Accept Gift?>Y/NDC 15
>>38469424>YHaha, now he's not even trying anymore.
So, who wants to make an army of magical girls recruited off the streets?
>>38469424>YThis is gonna be interesting, since the gods themselves choose what we get offered if we succeed the shaping roll, I'm curious to see what Mirror offers us now.
So are we going to do the permanent adaptation fix for our shadowflesh to try to weasel another Mirror favor point?
>>38469483Soon anon, Kae just needs to get better at chaos magic first.>>38469495I'm fairly sure anything we do to work around the problem rather than removing it would get Mirror favour, especially if we turn it into a advantage.
>>38469515>fairly sureYeah, but it was more or less confirmed that the adaptation way would give it.
>realizing that Shee literally made herself reflective (like a mirror) to get around the light weakness before she went off to crush the skull of the Infinite Mirror's avatar
>>38469495How does that one work? I skipped all the arguing about the situation earlier.
Yes it is, please roll willpower 1d20+14you still might get all 1's
>>38469563Evidently you skipped a non-zero number of story posts, too.
Rolled 11 + 14 (1d20 + 14)>>38469563Currently we have a skin mutation that reflects light away from Shee and makes her glow.>>38469576
Rolled 13 + 14 (1d20 + 14)>>38469576
Rolled 12 + 14 (1d20 + 14)>>38469576
Rolled 9 + 14 (1d20 + 14)>>38469576Or we might crit.
>>38469563Shee used adaptive mutation to make herself reflective. We can spend a couple xp to make that permanent.
>>38469610Normal skin is an adaptaion to sunlight though. Why not just do that?
>>38469633Because our normal skin isn't available right now.
>>38469633Normal skin doesn't filter out all sunlight.
>>38469633Sure, just have Shee decide what normal is.Remember what she decided was normal for dolphins in her realm?
You feel the power of the Infinite Mirror grudgingly seep into you. You can shape this power into 1 of 3 GiftsClouded ReflectionNone of your Gifts with obvious physical effects show on your form unless you are using them or wish them to show. This Gift does not have higher ranks, sufficiently powerful magic can pierce this disguise.Stoke the Inner FlameYou recover psychic energy points faster than normal. At Stoke the Flame 1 you recover 1 point of psychic energy per 30 minutes, instead of 1/hour.Smooth Away the CracksBy touching someone you may remove negative magical effects, by taking on the burden yourself. For the purpose of this ability ‘negative’ magical effects include any magical effect that causes lasting penalties or ongoing damage or any other effect the QM declares is negative. This is a normal action and you must succeed on a Willpower check with a DC of 11+ the willpower modifier of the one who created it. Success means the effect no longer affects the target, but affects you instead.10 minutes to discuss, then a vote.In the mean time, what is Shee going to do now?>Search the caverns for anything useful/valuable>Talk to the old forest>Head back to the camp at Randolph>Other (what?)
>>38469649I'd think growing it back would be covered by impossibilty.
>Talk to the old forest
>>38469713>Search the caverns for anything useful/valuableMaximum murderhobo>>38469722Its not gone, so we can't grow it back.
>>38469713Can SAtC combo with Absorb Spell to let us copy more things than would be normally possible?
>>38469713>Search the caverns for anything useful/valuable
>>38469713>Stoke the Inner FlameThis is pretty sweet. If we get enough ranks in it, we could recover during battle?>Smooth Away the CracksThis screams of ichor so much.>Search the caverns for anything useful/valuable
>>38469713>Clouded Reflection>None of your Gifts with obvious physical effects show on your form unless you are using them or wish them to show. This Gift does not have higher ranks, sufficiently powerful magic can pierce this disguise.Would this do anything since we have Shadow of the Depths? Would it let us hide the shadowflesh/shininess?
>>38469748We can get Stoke the Inner Flame already with XP.
>>38469748Yeah, but we can already get it as a King power.Stoke the Inner FlameYou recover psychic energy points faster than normal. At Stoke the Flame 1 you recover 1 point of psychic energy per 30 minutes, instead of 1/hour.At Stoke the Flame 2 you recover 1 point of psychic energy per 20 minutes.At Stoke the Flame 3 you recover 1 point of psychic energy per 10 minutes.At Stoke the Flame 4 you recover 1 point of psychic energy per 5 minutes.At Stoke the Flame 5 you recover 1 point of psychic energy per 2 minutes.At Stoke the Flame 6 you recover 1 point of psychic energy per minute.At Stoke the Flame 7 you recover 2 points of psychic energy per minute.At Stoke the Flame 8 you recover 3 points of psychic energy per minute.At Stoke the Flame 9 you recover 4 points of psychic energy per minute.At Stoke the Flame 10 you recover 1 point of psychic energy per combat round.You may not purchase this power more times than you have ranks in the Willpower Gift.
>>38469743in theory, yes
>>38469713Contact rainya annd tell her we are okay
>>38469796Might wanna read the last couple posts, anon.
>>38469759>Would this do anything since we have Shadow of the Depths?It would make it harder for magic to pierce the disguise. We had that confirmed a long long time ago, during then dark age of Seduction discussions.>>38469779Its a Mirror power, actually, since we started out with Willpower of the infinite Mirror.
>>38469759>Would this do anything since we have Shadow of the Depths?Adds to the DC of magic to see through it
>>38469713>Search the caverns for anything useful/valuableAs to be expected, all of them are varying kinds of bad.>>38469796Anon, pls learn to read.Its just terrible to watch.
>>38469796Shouldn't be that hard considering she's currently hugging us.
>>38469820Will this make us look not shiny in light?
>>38469810If StIF is Mirror-exclusive, it should have Willpower of the Infinite Mirror as one of it's prereqs, like those other peripherals that have Charisma of X or Durability of X below them.Either way, we can get ranks in it under our own power up to rank 10.
>>38469713>Smooth Away the CracksCould we use that to transfer a mind-affecting spell/power to us and then cancel it out with Royal Dominion?
>>38469919Could we already look not-shiny with just shadow of the depths?
>>38469919>Will this make us look not shiny in light?>YesHow does that work? Wouldn't the protective sheen be in use when exposed to light?Why does CR hide that when SotD doesn't?
>>38469942I think it's because SotD is shapeshifting mainly with some illusion to smooth it over while CR is mainly illusion.SotD makes us not shiny by taking away the reflection, making the light hit us, making the reflection kick back on because of AM
5 minute vote>Clouded Reflection>Stoke the Inner Flame>Smooth Away the Cracks>>38469928>>38469942Shadows of the Depths still hides it, as for how it works: Magic. You're reflecting light but turning it into something else.
>>38469982>Clouded ReflectionBoosting the difficulty of revealing our true form is good to me.
>>38469982>Shadows of the Depths still hides itBut it obviously didn't before? We got the stealth penalty and everything.Does that mean we don't need to buy CR to constantly hide away the glowing and are still protected?
>>38469982 >Clouded Reflection
Can we buy the permanent adaptation for reflective skin, then?
>>38469982>Clouded ReflectionWell, I'm just gonna accept that then, not sure how it makes sense, but if we can get done with this whole problem by buying CR and the Mutation, thats okay with me.
>>38470040>but if we can get done with this whole problem by buying CR and the MutationWe really aren't though, the problem remains, each time we get cut or our skin gets damaged, the underlying shadow tissue will be exposed and we get fucked by light.
>>38469982>Smooth Away the CrackSeems like the only one offering benefits we can't otherwise get.
>>38469982>Smooth Away the Cracks
>>38470065Well, they're all right here. We could at least ask what their price would be to make this all go away.
>>38470010>But it obviously didn't before? We got the stealth penalty and everything.>Does that mean we don't need to buy CR to constantly hide away the glowing and are still protected?I hand-waved that away because I wanted to try and show what the adaptation looked like and have it appear freaky.Shadows of the Depths *does* hide the visual effects of your sunlight adaptation.
>>38470065I think it does more than just the top-most layer, but if you really want it to be more effective we can always activate Adaptive Mutation and then injure ourself in front of some lights before we buy the permanent adaptation.
Clouded Reflection it is
>>38470114If it could make the tissue back into "not shadow" we wouldn't need the reflecting, so obviously its just the outer layers.
You and your allies spend several hours searching the network of caves for anything valuable, but all you find are traps, mostly magical ones that Kaelyn spends time disarming.Eventually you give up.“Ah well” you say to Rainya and Kaelyn “not every foe will have cool toys for us to take.”“Some of those spells were interesting though” says Kaelyn thoughtfully “gave me a few ideas...”“Are we going home now?” asks Rainya, her arm around your waist now that you have returned to your normal form.Are you?>Back to camp at Randolph>Back to the Waystation>Speak to the old forest>Other (what?)
>>38470145>Back to camp at Randolph
>>38470134I never said it made it into not-shadow, I said that the reflection might already be applying to all the tissue even below the skin and if it isn't already then we can make it do so.
>>38470145>Back to camp at RandolphI want to rest up before talking to the old forest again.>>38470170Well, how deep do you want to go there? Then it sjust a matter of how deep the wound goes, but it doesn't solve the problem, at some point, at the latest the muscles and flesh, will be shadow. So the funamental problem persists.
>>38470145>Speak to the old forest
>>38470170It would need to make it into "not-shadow" at some level for your idea to work, because currently its only a layer on top of our shadow skin. I don't think making that layer thicker is without problems.
>>38470145>Back to camp at RandolphTime to have sexy time interrupted by one more child.
>>38470145>Speak to the old forest>otherMaybe this can be our new home if we can make a portal to the waystation
Could we attempt to revive one of the dead jane clones?
>>38470311Why would we give up the Waystation or our Realm as home for this?If anything we should be looking for a way to link this place over the psiwell with our Realm so we can drag part of Randolph into our Realm.
>>38470336What for? Let her rot.
>>38470350They might be immensely usefull in fighting Jade.Also we could get access to her house.A jade servant might be good to for whatever purpose
>>38470399Doesn't she have a double back on her hive home? Or was it a pure illusion?Pally, could you answer, please?
randolph it is, writing the last update for today.
>>38470399>They might be immensely usefull in fighting Jade.We don't really need help 'fighting' Jade.If it comes to a fight, Jade has already lost.
>>38470419>Doesn't she have a double back on her hive home?She did yesNote past tense
>>38470436No, but Jade trust Jane (somewhat), and having a friendly face might just get us close to her
>>38470419It said in text already that she drained away her Duplicates to save herself.
>>38470466>Jade trust Jane (somewhat)She made one deal with her and got angry at the slightest hint that Jane might try to cheat her.
>>38470449Wait was that why the mirror gift was so weak? Did she switch to that double?
>>38470698Jesus Christ anon...
>>38470698Anon.Anon.Anon pls.Just. No.Rading comprehension anon, pls.
>>38470698It was weak because the Mirror's a spiteful dick and didn't want to risk us being able to successfully shape a higher strength gift.You should know this already.
“Lets go back” you say to Kaelyn and Rainya, teleporting back to the camp in Randolphs territory.Once you arrive, Dev hurries over “Is it over?” he asks “is that crazy bitch finally dead?”Rainya roll her eyes at you side “I’ve been telling him” she says “but he won’t believe me.”“It is” you tell Dev “she’s gone.”Dev seems to slump in relief “Oh wow, oh finally, thank you Shee, thank you.”It’s late afternoon and you all busy yourself preparing the evening meal.Once you’ve sat down, Kaelyn says to you quite casually “You know, if you’re not going to have Randolph take over the whole area, I’d like to find the chaoswell, maybe the old forest and I can come to some sort of agreement.”“What about the beastmen tribes?” asks Rainya.Kaelyn shrugs “They will fall in line or I’ll chase them off.”Rainyas and Devs expressions tell you just how much they *don’t* like that idea. “But Randolph needs to grow” says Lirael, interrupting “Don’t you Randolph?”-I’m not talking!- says Randolph –Mother stopped my Heart!-Lirael rolls her eyes “He’s such a baby” she says.You’ll have to talk to Randolph at some point, but right now, you just want to sleep and sleep and sleep.You realise that you said that last part out loud when the Rainya sat on your right says “I certainly hope not!” And she leads you to the only private room in the whole camp, the underground bedroom you woke up in, to the suggestive winks and laughter of your allies.-What’s mother and Rainya doing?- Asks Randolph“I’ll tell you when you’re older” you hear Lirael say-But I want to know now!- whines Randolph.If there’s a further exchange you miss it, as the Rainyas take up all of your attention...---And that’s it for today. Thank you for playing, and thank you for your patience. For your actions today you have gained 11XPNext thread will be Saturday, updates and warnings via twitter as usual
>>38470726She did yesNote past tensePast tense. As in it's no longer a double. It's her.
>>38470807All doubles died due to her trying to save her life.
>>38470807Dun dun duuuuuuun!
>>38470780Thanks for running.Could Suggestion(Corruption) have worked to free them?>>38470807There are no words I could use to express how dense you sound right now.
>>38470807You're so fucking dump. Jane drained the double to prolong her own life for another couple seconds.We don't get gifts for killing doubles, we on;y get gifts for killing the actual.
>>38470807If it's her, the mirror is playing the long con giving us that gift. Otherwise it's just a powerless version of her.
>>38470807I thought that was an illusion, not an actual double?
>>38470840Ichor was the one who informed us of Jane's death and I don't think Ichor would lie about this since she was pretty pissed off about the whole thing and willing to borderline cheat to help us kill Jane.
>>38470780Thanks for running.
>>38470780Will we have time to psychic infection anyone and spend xp, or will we want to rp things?I think the ones we want to do it with is dev, rainya and maybe lirael. Probably to go and give the mind protection to all and some others to dev.
>>38470926Rping giving someone psychic powers sounds more fun than just spending the XP
>>38470780>Permanent Adaptive Mutation [Shiny] (5) this pleases the Infinite Mirror?>Feast of Life 8 (10)>Shadowcraft 12 (30FoLxp)12xp left. 9FBBxp left
>>38470986>this pleases the Infinite Mirror?Yes, if chosen, gift vote will be next thread
>>38470986No. Vetoing all of that.We don't need more FoL right now, nor more Shadowcraft, and we haven't decided yet if we want to go with the Shiny solution.
>>38471006Has he gotten over us some, or is he still super salty?
>>38470986I like it.
>>38470986>Permanent Adaptive Mutation [Shiny] (5)Maybe>Feast of Life 8 (10)>Shadowcraft 12 (30FoLxp)Definitly not. There are a lot of things I'd have Shee rather get right now then more FoL.
>>38470986I'll support the Shiny, but the vamp stuff can wait until we actually get PoB.
>>38471062>Has he gotten over us some, or is he still super salty?Maximum salty
>>38470986>Not hoarding the vampire XP for haemokinesisAnon pls. Blood Talons combined with Titanic Form is fuckin crazy.>>38471115Can Shee make smug face at him when he has to dole out another gift?
>>38470986Yes for Shiny and Might maybe.
>>38471062Like balls on leg day
>>38471115Does baals gift have any benefits, or was it his way to try and strike a deal with us to adjust some people.
>>38471138I can agree with this.I wight wanna get another FBB level instead of Might so that it's a flat 5 per fight guaranteed, but Might works too.
>>38470986I guess shiny's the best we can do for now. Hopefully we can just reverse it eventually, somehow.
>>38471133>Can Shee make smug face at him when he has to dole out another gift?How smug?
>>38471174Imagine if Rustle took this guy and drew him as a smut loli.
>>38471165The shadowskin mutation is pretty much all negative, the gift he offered if you agreed to his deal was a standard one though.
>>38471166Yeah, another FBB level would be good.And we got enough FBB XP right now to buy one.
>>38471204>>38471174>smutsmug*Though I guess smut works too since it's Rustle...
>>38471217Does it at least give a +1 or 2 to stealth when in the dark?I'm still salty about how we instantly got the shittest-tier thing just because you thought it sounded cool. Not salty enough to try to make things miserable, I ain't roll like that, but still.
>>38471217So unstead it is up to us to untwist his gift to be a possative instead.Using xp, aspects and inventive thought.
>>38471217Is the Shiny adaptation just skin-deep or will it still reflect if Shee gets gash or a hole punched in her?
>>38471275>Does it at least give a +1 or 2 to stealth when in the dark?Very likely, yesas for the other, see>>38471319Nothing is truly hopeless or useless anon.
>>38471275I think it a-ok that some random bad stuff comes our way sometimes too, it usually pretty positive, and it seemed appropriate for the roll.
>>38470986I would prefer to get Mystic Siphon actually, the last fight showed how easily we run out of PE currently, so that would help us out a lot.I'm not eager to get more vampire stuff until we actually got PoB.And then we still want quite a bit in XP saved up for when we get the activation chamber back, or get a new one.
>>38471367>I think it a-ok that some random bad stuff comes our way sometimes tooThe problem was that it wasn't random, though.
>>38471397Could Shee stand around in the light alternating self-harm, AM, and healing until it figures out something better?
>>38471359Yeah, with enough power who knows.We turn the shadow skin so that light regens pe and laser fire just disperses off of us.Shadow absorbs the light and control over plants life and corrupting the stuff means we convert the energy. We upgrade shiny to turnnon and off and get heavy laser dr.Baal would like get a good laugh if we turned it to an advantage.
>>38471429If we vote in the Shiny now, could we do that and just get a little blurb at the start of Saturday's thread or would we have to wait until next thread to play it out in full?
>>38471456Play it out in full of course
>>38471456Since he said "Possibly" instead of "Yes", its clearly something we have to discover.
>>38471407Random as in something that happened off schedule, unlike Jane trying to kill us, that was expected and planned bad stuff.But besides, Pally has been pretty good to us and flying with our stupid ideas. This was an anons stupid negative idea, it seems only fair. Pally gives, Pally takes.
>>38470986Permanent mutation in this case is 5 XP for a gift from our choice of the Four and a stopgap measure for Shadowskin, so I'd consider it worth it. If permanent mutations weren't toggleable, then we'd have a problem in the long run, but they are.Feast of Life is...alright. The bonus XP is good, Vitae pool increases are also fairly useful, bite damage and abilities are largely irrelevant.The major advantage to getting Shadows over other vampire powers would be circumventing the normal restriction to leveling Void somewhat (I think?) by having it immediately become L12 Void after a thing happens.
>>38471578Oh right. Void has that level restriction thing.How does that work again?
Rainya 6/20>Two-Weapon Fighting (-4XP)So she finally can make two energy weapons>Flight 2 (-10XP)Flight opens up a completly new strategic dimension for Rainya, and will be useful once we can use Plurality in combat. Until then the +2Defense are not bad either.>>38471578>the normal restriction to leveling VoidWhich would be?
Dev has 94 xp to spend. Need to give him psionicsLirael has like 84 xp. Combat skills?AA is banking a good amount for Meta reasons for a story element.
>>38471605>>38471608Can't raise Void above Bloodline, can't raise Bloodline above Feast of Life, IIRC.
>>38471628Yeah I just found it, I had assumed those level are just not accessible if we have higher Shadow before then?Pally, could you give us clarification on that?
>>38471578>The major advantage to getting Shadows over other vampire powers would be circumventing the normal restriction to leveling Void somewhat (I think?) by having it immediately become L12 Void after a thing happens.>>38471628Well fuck. If that's how it works, I'm down for it.
>>38471622>Lirael has like 84 xp. Combat skills?Lirael is on ice until we have Primacy of Blood, so we can dump her XP into the bloodline powers.Wouldn't know much else to dump her XP into anyway, sure there are 'some' things, but nothing really valuable.
>>384716082 more levela of plurality maybe?Let her hold a conversation somewhat with 5x normal rainyas? (-10)
>>38471685It's pointless if people don't let Shee raise her own vampire powers because Lirael can't raise her bloodline above Shee's.
>>38471697I find Plurality isn't worth it at all until Rank 4.She needs the TWF for full use of her Energy Weapon and Limbs Unrivaled, Flight is useful, but we might as well only get one Rank, it doesn't make a big difference on this level.
>>38471651>Pally, could you give us clarification on that?Shadow has the standard restrictions on max level like any other vampire power (as under Feast of Life)Should it be converted to void it would retain its level and can be used normally, it just can't *raise* its level further until the max rank cap catches up.
>>38471685Well when the thing, whatever it is happens, we might have a decent mix of meta xp given too.So spening 10 or 20-30 for some combat skills would not be bad, she still has like 50ish.
>>38471738Why is Void even like that? We can't raise FoL above 12 yet void has 20 levels.
Meanwhile in Chaos Sorceress Spider Cyborg Quest> I hate you pallyB> So much> Tame killer forest, nope she just makes it hers.> She disappears for a while, okay this is pretty good> Make perfect trap, nope cheats> Its okay I still have the upper hand, I am prepared after all> Stupid Mary Sue killing spree> ???> I had to off all my clones and give up my forest and beastmen just to remove all tracks to me> And further more I had to make this sucky deal with mirror for him to go and make it look like I am really dead> Worst part of it all is she even gets a gift to make it seem real> I hardly even learned anything about her and she just broke my aspect power, wtf this is so unfair> What am I supposed to do now?
>>38471738So we would have Void 12 then?I suppose that settles it.Shee 13/27 4/9(FBB)>Feast of Life 8 (-10XP)>Shadowcraft 12 (30FXP)>Mystic Siphon 1 (-4XP)>Forged By Battle 5 (-5FBBXP)Probably should wait out getting the Permament Mutation untilI think that covers everything I've seen?>>38471456>>38471470this has been fulfilled.>>38471750Meta XP are for Shee alone.
>>38471861That sounds good to me.
>>38471608I wonder if we shouldn't get Rainya "Strength of the Mothers Love".The bonuses would make a real difference for her, especially the bonus to willsaves would help her.
>Shee standing there screaming while she cooks herself in the sun>Trying to get Dev to shoot her with a laser to build up the resistances while Dev stands there nervously looking in Rainya's direction while saying that he doesn't wanna.
>>38471738Does randolf have any special abilities to buy with xp?Are we able to buy higher stats with him, like a higher base will power?
>>38471738Since normally gifts are restricted in Rank by favour, how are the Rank restrictions for Rainya?Can she only get dirst Rank in everything?
>>38471861I think we should get permanent mutation, it will suck not to be able to be in light.The faster the better, and that way Pally also have time to prepare for smug-face dialog
>>38471992>it will suck not to be able to be in lightWe can keep the non-permament mutation until we get the improved version, otherwise we ave to spend 5XP twice, which would kinda suck.
>>38471985Not gonna pretend I know shit about it, but I thought it would make sense if she was tied to Shee's favor.
>>38472019But we would get a favour for 5xp essentially
Ok, so buy the abilities >>38471861 and then start off the next thread with trying to improve Shiny?
>>38471992Should do it, I agree.We will atill have xp to do the psychic infections too.Jade is likely the next target and she is a mind melter type.
>>38472025Technically Ichor isn't allowed to acknowledge Rainya gets gifts for Shees sake.Since that would be breaking the rules, so I'm not sure.>>38472041For 10 then, if we buy the improved version anyway. And So we can just wait until we get the improved Version, pay 5 in-thread and get the favour.
>>38472049>and then start off the next thread with trying to improve Shiny?Probably something we will be doing once we are in our realm, but then, yes.
>>38471359>Very likely, yesIs the Shadowflesh going to have a place on the pastebin? if so where would it be, baalzi gifts section?
>>38472069>For 10 then, if we buy the improved version anyway. And So we can just wait until we get the improved Version, pay 5 in-thread and get the favour.There is no guarantee that we will get a favour if we wait. No guarantee we can even improve it.I am not saying we can't or that we won't get a favour, I am just saying its a risk.I'd rather get it now, its good deal as it is.
>>38472134What are you even talking about? There was never a time constraint on using AM to deal with the shadowflesh.
>>38472134>No guarantee we can even improve it.>>38471429He wouldn't have said we have to play it out if there was nothing to be gained by it.Second>There is no guarantee that we will get a favour if we wait.Why wouldn't we? We get favour for circumventing the problem and adapting to it, it doesn't matter if we wait slightly longer. Its not a risk at all.
>>38472134He'll offer some dc 15 skill, and we get it. Might be useful.Might be agi or intnor something like that too.
>>38471763It's pretty likely that Feast of Life will have 20 levels.>>38471861Could use those remaining 4 Forged XP and one regular point of XP to get another level of Forged By Battle.>>38472069The better version probably costs 8+ instead of 5.>>38472096If we can maintain it for that long. Non-permanent mutations are only supposed to last for an encounter.
>>38472203>Non-permanent mutations are only supposed to last for an encounter.Our encounter with the 3 sun only ends with sunset.
>>38472203>If we can maintain it for that long.I don't think there is a huge problem with covering ourselves until we get home.Definitly not big enough to be worth spending 5XP on, in my opinion.>>38472203>Could use those remaining 4 Forged XP and one regular point of XP to get another level of Forged By Battle.I got it wrong anyway, it Forged By Battle 4 what we purchase now, the on where we get the flat 5XP, which is what I was aiming for.I don't think we need more, I would rather spend the rest then on more Might.
>>38472203>If we can maintain it for that long.I had the impression Titanic Form had a time limit of 10 minutes, but since I can't find it anywhere, that would also be a option until we are home.
>tfw we can't just go for 12FoL now and max Void preemptively
>>38472308I'm sure Baalzi could be convinced to give us much more favour....For a small price.
>>38472328Coulda corrupted the shit out of Jane.
>>38472345When we get Jade anon.Mind for a mind.
>>38472369Whatdya wanna do to her? Enslavement? Total personality rewrite, effectively killing her and replacing her with a clone who is less of a shit? Force her to turn herself in to the cops? Force her to stand still while Ash's grandpappy beats her to death with his cane?
>>38472187>He'll offer some dc 15 skillIf you mean Mirror, he doesn't have to give you a gift unless you kill an avatar, so you'll just get to choose one of the other Four to grant your Gift.>>38472260Point, but an encounter is considered to be less than ten minutes in most scales.>>38472270>I don't think there is a huge problem with covering ourselves until we get home.Probably not, it's just a factor to consider, since it is 6 PE every time we'd need to refresh it. Don't lollygag.>>38472303Titanic Form doesn't actually have a time limit in it's description. Strange.
>>38472203I'm really wondering by now if the opportunity for PoB just didn't come, or was it not planned for this fight at all?
>>38472411>Titanic Form doesn't actually have a time limit in it's description. Strange.I think Pally might have forgotten to add it, the PE cost also still aren't there.
>>38472407Force her to firebomb the Crimsonthorn mansion.
>>38472407Speaking of Ash's granddad, we should get Jane's head (one of them anyway) and mail it to him with a note or something
>>38472528Oh right. We were going to send him a jar of Jan-goo.
>>38472411>Probably not, it's just a factor to consider, since it is 6 PE every time we'd need to refresh it. Don't lollygag.>No lolligagging, we should buy the permanent adaptation
>>38472528>>38472539I don't think "This random corpse is totally his killer", will convince grandpa.
>>38472411So we choose someone else. Mother or king likely.I think most are tired of baal.I would of expected shadowskin on a crit fail. We should be able to twist it tonour advantage.
>>38472411What's the xp spending look like?
>>38472559Nah, I'm not gonna agree on spending XP on a poor stopgab solution like this.We would still get fucked by light anytime we get a cut our our skin is damaged in any way.Thats just awful and absolutely not worth it.
>>38472573Nothing will convince him, and to be fair I don't really care. It should be done because it seems proper.He might tell on us tho, which sucks, but I doubt it, and its a risk I am willing to take
>>38472612>I think most are tired of baal.Definitly gonna vote for Baal gift.We still need Dexterity and Intellect from him.There isn't really much we would want from Mother or Hell Dad.
>>38472643If we subtle teleport a corpse from the middle of the desert into his house, what's he gonna do?
>>38472643Your shitty "risk I'm willing to take" got us into this shit with him to begin with.Sending him the corpse of some random women with admission of us murdering her is a terrible idea, since she is a upstanding citizen and we have no proof of any wrongdoing on her part.
>>38472612I'm totally gonna vote for King next. Hesan is fucking boss-tier and this latest shit with Baalzamon's Shadowflesh should be enough to convince people to go that route.
>>38472612I think Baalz is the most fun of themIs he a dick, yes, but I think he can creates the most interesting situations and not even necessarily even the worst ones
>>38472704Except Hesan is the only transformation of the King Forms that would NOT help with Shadowflesh.King told us only forms thats bar other mutations would remove Shadowflesh, hesan does not and would therefore suffer from it.
>>38472704>Hesan is fucking boss-tier>Gives some Charimsa bonus we don't actually needYou have some really weird understanding of "boss-tier".
>>38472729Baalzamon's funny because he makes everyone so paranoid that they fuck themselves up. His badness is near totally avoidable even while still interacting with him, yet people get so worked up that they jump into the mud-puddle instead of stepping around it.
>>38472698I still think we can get him as an allyThe rage last time was understandable, and directing it at us was unfortunate but understandable. He might have calmed a it down and came to his senses by now
>>38472431The initially discussed scenario in which it would've happened was this fight, but you did too well solo and kept your family out of it.>>38472559I meant it more in the context of not hanging around in the forest for a week.>>38472631Like the thing that was posted earlier. If you mean the meta-spending, it's currently what's needed to awaken Void primed for a narrative event.>>38472704Hesan is good for little other than mixing and does nothing for shadowflesh.
>>38472824Ok so we're going with >>38471861 afterall?
>>38472808If baal gives ag or int, i'll vote for him then.We have corruption 5, we should be able to start teisting gifts now.
>>38472840We don't wanna waste all our PE on adaptive mutation come on...
>>38472824>I meant it more in the context of not hanging around in the forest for a week.I don't think we're gonna do that. After a final chat with the old forest, we're gonna pack and go home.I hope we can find a way to open a portal between our Realm and Randolphs forest, so he can interact with us in our Realm and we don't have to jump all the way over to the Astrobleme to interact with him.
>>38472890We won't, we just cover ourselves in clothes until we get home.Or improve the mutation already in the forest.
>>38472898We need to help our forest baby and his heart though, and we probably want to spend some time with Kae around the chaoswell
>>38472962That can all wait though, neither of those are urgent unless the old forest acts up.And Randolphs heart will be okay in two weeks anyway.
>>38472824I wonder if getting the scales from Form of Baalzamon would get rid of the Shadowskin problem.
>>38472962Time dilation too. A week here is likely 1 day elsewhere. Be a good time to help Kae with the chaos well and old forest. I am fine with thatWe can help Randolf some. Finally psychic infection and work on twisting that shadonskin fuckery.
>>38472840I believe so.Shee Hyul, 14/27 XP, 5/9 Forged XP, 30/30 FoL BXP>Feast of Life +2 (8) -10 XP>Shadows +6 (12) -30 Feast of Life Bonus XP>Mystic Siphon +1 (1) -4 XP>Forged By Battle +1 (4) -5 Forged XPHuh, I just realized that the mutation is probably going to end it's timer while Rainya is having her way with you. I wonder what her reaction will be.
>>38472985He is family now, we will nurse him all better faster than two weeks. We can't just leave him now. We at least have to work on his clinginess before we do
>>38473036The Heart isn't actually his heart anon, he is perfectly fine with it being inactive.And pouring those 14PE into it, or some more, takes a few hours at most if we feel the need to do it.
>>38473033Seeing as how we have Shadow of the Depths and Clouded Reflection, she probably won't even notice unless we're doing it in a brightly lit area and Shee starts screaming and bleeding everywhere.
>>38473079I know it isn't, but he didn't sound perfectly fine, and leaving him so sudden is kinda a dick move
>>38473079We should first see if we can open a second door to our realm here too.It would make things much easier.
>>38473036>we will nurse him all better faster than two weeksWell, he is a plant, kinda...>>38473087Assuming you notice it before her.
>>38473120Its not "sudden" and its not a "dick" move either.Stop this sort of faggotry. The earlier we come back to our realm, the earlier we can find a way to open a portal to his forest and actually make him a involved character instead of wasting a thread faffing about in a forest forn no reason.
>>38473120It really isn't, you are clingier than Randolph is anon, its absurd. He is way slower than we are, he will barely notice. And by necessity we will be away from him for some time once we return to the Hive.And Dev for example wants to leave, and I'm not gonna force him to stay in this forest for longer than necessary.Because that IS a dick move.
>>38473153I would like to see if we could open a door to our realm from the psiwell before teleporting out.
>>38473207>>38473153>>38473120This Randolph thing is going to be real headache.I REALLY hope Pally thought this through more than just for the short novelty of the forest child thing, because its going to be a huge hassle to keep track of him, especially with the time flow being different like this.
>>38473153>Thanks for helping keeping my friends alive for a month, protecting me and killing my enemy, really appreciated>No problem mom, draining my heart hurt a bit, but its okay if its for you.. Hey where are you going?>Oh, I am going home now, 5000km away>But I haven't even gotten to know you the slightest.. What about my heart? What about dad? How do I handle all these new things? I don't wanna be alone...>Tough luck sonny, I don't care I am going home
>>38473264We don't have any ability to connect to our Realm from the outside, so thats not a option.At best we can open a new one from inside our Realm, where we have such power.
>>38473296Except I explicitly mentioned both that we need to solve the thing with the old forest and that we need to find a way to open a portal so we can contact with Randolph from within our Realm so your pathetic attempt at guilt tripping is rather inane.
>>38473296We need to leave a Rainya behind. And hope Randolph doesn't attempt to copy what we did.
If Randolph (God I hate that name) is our son, then technically he is our bloodline and thus eligible reunited material?
>>38473279Well, from some hints, it was planned from the start. I wonder if we can get him to our realm somehow.Father thinks slow cause it was ser up that he would talk to people outside the forest.Likely in the fight, if Shee got damaged she would have bleed then be kidnapped in response.
>>38473296>draining my heart hurt a bitIt didn't.>Thanks for helping keeping my friends alive for a month, protecting me and killing my enemyHe did that because we literally made it his nature by warping his mind into it, he was MADE from our desire to protect them. He didn't actually have a choice.>Oh, I am going home now, 5000km awaySo you want us to never go home ever again? We start "Forest babysitting Quest" now?>What about my heart?He knows it regenerates on its own>What about dad?Not a issue anymore, he can easily handle him on his own and had already deciuded how to do so.> How do I handle all these new things? There are no new things.
>>38473403>I wonder if we can get him to our realm somehow.I would strongly hope so, because its going to be absurdly annoying to keep in contact with him otherwise so Pally could have his funny genius loci child joke.As I said, I really hope he thought this through further than this.Because Pally has the tendency to have ideas he thinks are really great and then never go anywhere because he hasn't really thought it through.
>>38473507I'm thinking Between Kae and Shee they could make a gate to Shee's realm.
>>38473507>Because Pally has the tendency to have ideas he thinks are really great and then never go anywhere because he hasn't really thought it through.Paet if that could also be /tg/ being ADD when playing a ques
>>38473559Then there is still the problem of Randolph being basically just there to be there.We already have a child character, and Randolph can't even come with us anywhere.He quite literally just ties us down, and I don't see what he adds to the story to make that worth it.Now I hope Pally has plans to develop Randolph as character to make him worth it, I fear he doesn't.At the very least we need to arrange for ebing able to contact him from our Realm, possibly allowing him to grow into it. But thats really just a temporary measure to take care of a problem, where I'm not sure why the problem was necessary at all.
>>38472643Her death is part of the reunited war. No reprisals from that
>>38473651Well we miffed the roll that got him a body to let him lug around his heart. I imagine have a time dilation forest with a built in security field and variable training grounds would be good for getting new recruits in Shee's cell up to par.
>>38473393>If Randolph (God I hate that name) is our son, then technically he is our bloodline and thus eligible reunited material?He isn't 'actually' our son, anon. He isn't really a biological being. He is our 'son' in the sense that he was made by us warping the old forest.
>>38473767That doesn't really require Randolph as character, the place is neat, but it never needed to be intelligent.Or a fully formed intelligence, if he would have grown more and more sentient over time while we nurtured the Psiwell, that would have been far better too.
>>38473839I imagine he get more power he'll make a body eventually. Baleful Teleport into him anyone? Plus we can start fixing up the planet with his help.
>>38473873Yeah sure, maybe at some point he can walk around. It would be pretty silly and stupid, considering what he is, but its still better than him staying a location.But the question remains, what for?Why does he exist? The place would serve the same function without a fully formed intelligence in it.And I'm not sure to what purpose he got introduced into the story except to be another target for our enemies to attack our Family Aspect.
>>38473651Kae can check up on Randolph when she plays with her new chaos well. Even better she can skip feeding here.Not that we won't be coming back as we need to make Chaos berries to sell.
>>38473969I fail to see what that has to do with anything.
>>38473949He exists because that's how the setting works and how our aspects interacted in that instance. It's not there to be perfectly convenient for you at all times.
>>38474063No, thats bullshit. Not every chaoswell has a animating intelligence.In fact, the forest was so special because it was a huge chaoswell and thats why he had one.Randolph exists because Pally wanted him to. There was nothing in the setting making it necessary for him to exist.
>>38473949Character are not always going to be convenient. The kid is a genius Loci who is likely going to be linked to our realm. 3 levels and he's already deadly imagine at 10 levels what he could do? It all ahs to do with interaction.>>38474100He exists because we corrupted the forest and accidentally made a new one. Stop being butthurt over having another character to interact with.
>>38474136>Stop being butthurt over having another character to interact with.Stop being a hostile faggot, alright? Can you do that?I'm expressing my concern over how this character will be handled, considering that he isn't connected to anything we do and has zero relevance to the rest of the plot, and his extremly far away from our normal location.You know another character who these things applied to, and even less strongly than with Randolph? Do you want that shit again? I don't.
>>38474184Randy is a fair bit tougher than Ash, Also he's a powerful psi as a 1 month old. If we can link him to our realm we're in very good shape. Additionally when he makes himself a body he will be dangerous.
>>38474136>3 levels and he's already deadlyNo, he isn't. At all. He is a source of PE right now.And I also really hope Pally knows what he is doing here, because there is a very real risk Randolph will never become more than that.
>>38474239>Mental control over a war follower>Not deadly.All he ahs to do is apport someone right under the thing to kill them, which would easy for him.
>>38474224>Additionally when he makes himself a body he will be dangerous.However long that takes, and if it ever happens.The old forest doesn't have a movable body either, I'm not sure what makes you so convinced Randolph will.Especially since Randolph is explicitly very very slow. Not as much as the old forest, but definitly slow. I don't think he ever will have a body with which to come to missions and the like.
>>38474272Yeah thats really cool when we fight people in the forest.But we are normally located hundrets of kilometres away from the forest where Randolph can't do shit.
>>38474224>Randy is a fair bit tougher than AshToughness doesn't have much to do with it.Ash was significantly tougher than Rainya or Dev too.The issue is how likely are we going to have reason and opportunity to involve this character into what we do.He is a fucking forest. I really hope we can actually fully transplant him into our Realm ASAP.
>>38474100>Not every chaoswell has a animating intelligence.Entirely possible every Psiwell does, or maybe one of our aspects (i.e. the reasons he exists in the first place) did something, or it could have to do with him being an offshoot of the old forest.>>38474312And?>>38474432Or just let him grow into the realm, no need for a full transplant. The canyon has useful properties anyway.
>>38474030Some Anons seem worried Randolph will be neglected.
>>38474507Yes, but my worry is definitly not calmed by saying "some other NPC will interact with him", thats not really the point.>>38474489>And?What? You claimed he was really cool and useful, and I pointed out he really isn't because he can't do anything in the place where we are 99% of the time.Also>Maybe maybe maybeDo you realise how silly you sound? Its pretty obvious Randolph exists because Pally wanted him to, not because any setting element made it necessary.
>>38474571>You claimed he was really cool and usefulNo, different anon, I just didn't get your point with that post, and evidently, you didn't have one.>Do you realise how silly you sound?Says the person panicking because a character might not be involved in every single thing we do for the rest of the quest.>Its pretty obvious Randolph exists because Pally wanted him to, not because any setting element made it necessary.Yeah, there's no conceivable way a goddess of Impossibility, Corruption and Family's aspects could create an offshoot of a genius loci that used her as fuel for a time.
>>38474719>Yeah, there's no conceivable way a goddess of Impossibility, Corruption and Family's aspects could create an offshoot of a genius loci that used her as fuel for a time.At n point did I say its implausible or inconsistent with the setting. The point was you claimed the setting made it NECESSARY for him to exist, and thats simply wrong. So the question remains, what for?>>38474719>and evidently, you didn't have oneExcept for the one that I made. Are you retarded or something Or is it just too much past your bedtime?
Maybe Randolph will have a big plant dragon body. That'd be cool.
>>38474792>So the question remains, what for?Because it happened live has loose ends anon. So do quests.
>>38474719>Says the person panickingI don't see anyone panicking. Considering prior experience with Pallys quest, fearing a character with poor set-up will be neglected by the narrative and the players because Pally doesn't do anything with them is a very reasonable concern.Since it has happened quite often.Maybe you haven't read PoJ and aren't as familiar with the problem with Pally, but you have to understand, some people here are.And we do see what Pally does in this quest under the light of what he did there.
>>38474851You just completly left the realm of reason didn't you?>Anything can be done in a quest without any reason, because why not?Besides this attiude being rather stupid, it also completly fails to adress the actual concern. In fact it is exactly the concern of there not being any thought behind this character and it just being narrative baggage.
>>38474792>The point was you claimed the setting made it NECESSARY for him to exist, and thats simply wrong.It kinda does. Our aspects are part of us, we were used as fuel, our aspects would interact with the being using us as fuel, the result was a corrupted offshoot formed around an impossible well of power tied to our natural psionics which wanted to protect those close to us innately.That's how our aspects work. This is a major part of Corruption in particular, with it's passive warping schtick.>Except for the one that I madeYour point is that he might not be able to go on missions with us. At no point was this the point the anon you replied to was making. His point was only about Randolph being able to defend himself, as he was calling him deadly in response to the stated possibility of him only existing as a weakness.>>38474874It just seems like he's being ridiculous and a needlessly hostile ass over the possibility of getting a character that isn't vital from a purely pragmatic standpoint.
>>38475017>that isn't vital from a purely pragmatic standpointNo, a character that isn't relevant from a narrative point either.
>>38475085>No, a character that isn't relevant from a narrative point either.Of course he's relevant, he's our son. Aside from that, he's a sapient psiwell that's going to be living (at least in part) in our realm and primarily resides in a time-warped canyon full of magical power, where Kae is probably going to be spending a lot of her time.
>>38475017>It kinda does. Our aspects are part of us, we were used as fuel, our aspects would interact with the being using us as fuel, the result was a corrupted offshoot formed around an impossible well of power tied to our natural psionics which wanted to protect those close to us innately.Absolutely no one would have questioned it if Randolph wouldn't have existed.Our Aspects weren't even actively used against the Old Forest, we just bled into it and made a bunch of new plants.There was no need for a new intelligence to come to be, let alone a fully formed one, let alone one that isn't actually like Shee at all and therefore kinda renders the argument of being a result of her Corruption rather void.
>>38474803That'd be cool.
>>38475131>Of course he's relevant, he's our son.He didn't really need to be our son, except to create a easy emotional leverage on the player to give a shit.And just saying "he's our son" doesn't make him relevant or interesting. Its a label, not his role in the narrative, especially since he isn't 'actually' Shees son.Someone mentioned this before, and I'm inclined to agree, it would have been significantly better if Randolph would have grown into intelligence while Shee cared for the forest and the Psiwell.
>>38475222>it would have been significantly better if RandolphIt would have been significantly better if his name weren't "Randolph".Because really.
