"Alright." You glance at the god, and then at the... other, smaller god. "Explain."You pull up a chair, sit back down, and wait.Yaraon, the God of the Western Plains, clears his throat. "Technically speaking, Shining Jewel is mine and Dancing Smoke's child.""You're gods." You reply. You're no expert in applied theology, but, "I'm pretty sure you don't actually work that way."The little god, covered in brilliant jewelry like a small, lavish doll that has spent a bit too much time in the hands of a hyperactive girl with weird taste in accessories, pulls up a chair as well and climbs up to sit on it, with a mannerism way too mature for its apparent age. He seems mildly annoyed by his own minuscule stature.Yaraon nods. "Just like the Manse and city of Pearl is growing from my lands, Shining Jewel was born from me. And, Dancing Smoke was the catalyst for both.Well, that makes a weird amount of sense, you conclude. You heard that your engineer, Valeriana, had asked / forced Dancing Smoke, the volcano-goddess-but-not-really, to smelt some Orichalcum for her, which went into the manse's construction."Do new gods always work this way?" You wonder."This way? You mean being born from other two deities who share some common aspects or connections with him?"You nod.He giggles. "Of course not. That would make way too much sense."You groan, and shift your attention to the other occupant of the cozy room. "So you're Pearl's god." You conclude, staring at the small god, whose eyes barely peek from the top of the table."I am." He replies, with a childlike, high-pitched voice fitting his appearance, but the attention and calm he puts in his words seem to betray a mature demeanor that belies your first impression. He seems to be studying you."...Are you that small because you're really really young, or because Pearl is still unfinished?" You can't help but ask."Both, I guess." He replies, crossing his arms. His jewelry jingles musically.(cont.)

>>39934312>You two were saying something about Dancing Smoke?>Do you need anything right now?>Can you help with Pearl's construction?>Do you have any requests concerning Pearl's construction?>I am not sure if you know, but we had plans about adding intelligence to the Manse... what do you think about it?
>>39934312>Do you have any requests concerning Pearl's construction?>Do you need anything right now?>Would you volunteer to being wired into the Manse directly as its acting intelligence?Might as well get that done while were still building Pearl, we can pass it along to Mik and Val, they're the ones that have actually planned the city. He'll need his own temple though now that I think about it.I guess we could ask about him becoming Pearl's AI, but without Val or Irene here we don't really have anyone with expertise on this for the details.Nice to have you back by the way EF, shame about Saturday.
>>39934312>Do you have any requests concerning Pearl's construction?>Can you help with Pearl's construction?>You two were saying something about Dancing Smoke?>What are your powers as of now?wiring him in as the cities AI just leaves a bad taste in my mouth, and I thought the city was already going to have its own AI and we wouldn't need to get one for it?
>>39934415>I thought the city was already going to have its own AI and we wouldn't need to get one for it?That's the plan. But then we didn't exactly took into account the city's god.It's why I voted (>>39934384) to ask what he thinks of the AI.
>>39934442good point>>39934384>>I am not sure if you know, but we had plans about adding intelligence to the Manse... what do you think about it?add that to my vote in >>39934415
>>39934415We can grow an AI naturally, but it'll take time is what we decided.I'm not actually sure how having a God as an AI would affect him though, he's not exactly human so I'm not sure if he'll have to die like a human would, Gods are technically just completely made of Essence so it might not hurt him at all. It's something I think we need Val or Irene here to verify
>>39934470He would be stuck in the city, just like how a human's mind/soul would.
>>39934470it would still enslave him to the AI
>>39934312>Can you help with Pearl's construction?>Do you have any requests concerning Pearl's construction?Frankly, there are so many unemployed gods that we can almost certainly find a volunteer for that.
>>39934506Well technically he would be the AI, but yes it would mean he can't leave the city, being denied access to Yu-Shan is a pretty big deal, especially since we plan on making Pearl an important city, as a City-God to it he could be pretty famous.
A few info:Current dress is #25.Reminder that both drawings and writing are rewarded with either extra XP or the ability to make a special request, so you have no excuse!Fixing/updating/improving the character list pastebin also counts. It's an entirely player-made thing and I'd like it to stay that way.Solar Hero Style and similar dice adders add to the attack roll but do NOT add to your defense. I said otherwise in a previous thread, but I was wrong and got the old and new systems mixed up. Sorry for the mess.Solar Hero Style adds to PUNCHING people. Stuff like Fivefold Bulwark Stance (Dawn) or SHADOW OVER WATER (Night) add to AVOIDING people punching you.They do not stack with each other.Also, from now on for at least two months, threads will start about at this hour and run for a shorter time than I was able to keep them up previously.To make up for it, I'm fairly confident I can usually handle 2 a week or sometimes even more. Let's see if this confidence is well-placed or not.
>>39934312>Do you have any requests concerning Pearl's construction?>Would you volunteer to being wired into the Manse directly as its acting intelligence?>Do you need anything right now?
>>39934517yeah, leaves a bad taste in my mouth forcing him to be the AI, so thats a no go for me

>>39934529You'd think that Socialx5, i.e. 25 outfits is plenty. But apparently it ain't enough for 4chan. So...when will be be able to commission a Infinite Resplendence Amulet from Val? Not that i really care about it...
>>39934575We can technically ask her anytime for artifacts I think, even more so now that she has access to Orichalcum, but I'd rather get some other stuff before we ask for an artifact that does something we already have a charm for.

Rolled 10 (1d10)>>39934312Right, forgot to roll...
I have to AFK because OF COURSE, even when i'm tight on time and i made sure i had the entire day for myself to run this quest, people still have to butt in and assume that i am always at everyone's disposal 24/7. Be back in... I have no idea how long.
>>39934656no worries boss, we'll keep the thread toasty for you
>>39934656We'll be here EF>>39934575Actually for artifacts I'd rather Val either upgrade our gloves/heels or make us a Wings of the Raptor first.
I might be back, but I might get called again later. Nevermind a free day, even getting a free half-day is utterly impossible for me it seems.>>39934568You're right, sorry, #25 was for Silk.Back on track now."So, about that Manse." Yeah, it's weird. If he's the Manse's god why is he here and not there? Does it have anything to do with Yaraon? Are you just overthinking? "Yes?" The little god keeps at you from his side of the table, as Yaraon brings some tea for you both."Do you have any requests concerning it? I mean, if you're going to be its god-""I know."Shivers run down your spine for a moment. Something in his tone of voice... You exchange a nervous glance with Yaraon, who seems to share your preoccupation.This little thing, with his unthreatening looks and demure, childish appearance, shouldn't give you this feeling."...Know what?" You might as well try."I have no particular requests." He says, almost dimissively.Is he always this... laconic? You try taking a sip of the tea to break the tension, and then try your best to ignore your burned tongue. "Is there anything you can do to help us right now? We... I'm sorry to ask, but we need pretty much all the help we can get."He turns to Yaraon, then back to you, his eyes expressionless. "No." He says. "Sorry." He then adds, as if he had just remembered a moment too late how human politeness works."What about me, Is there anything I can do... that we can do to help?"He gives you an odd look. "I don't need help. You do."Can't argue with that, you realize."...I am not sure if you know, but we had plans about adding intelligence to the Manse... what do you think about it?"Yaraon frowns. "Wait, what are you suggestin-""I'll do it."His peaceful answer catches both of you by surprise."But... Jewel! Being bound to a location means you won't be able to move! Not to Yu Shan, not even around Creation! Forever!""That's not necessarily true." He replies, and gives you a knowing look.
You feel your stomach turning, as if under a sudden sense of vertigo.The Titan's flying system. He knows?"Stop being crazy." Yaraon warns him. "If you agree to this crazy idea, you'll be bound to that city forever! You don't even know how it'll turn out!" He glances back at you: "Uh... no offense intended.""None taken." You concede. "I'm surprised as well. Agreeing to becoming a manse intelligence is a big decision. Aren't you making it lightly?""Aren't you?" He asks back. "Are you sure you want me?"That reply gives you pause. >Yes, I'm sure. I want you.>No, I'm not sure. I'll keep looking.>Change the subject (to what?)
>>39935384>I don't knowDamnit, I don't want to sacrifie him.
>>39935384>No, I'm not sure. I'll keep looking.
>>39935384>I don't know>What are the full consequences of makin you the AI?
>>39935400You know we won't be sacrificing him, he's still be alive and very not dead.
>>39935475You know what I meant, wiring him to Pearl. There is little difference between doing this to him and a random mortal; both's existences continue on, their minds preserved as the AI.
>>39935384>Yes, I'm sure. I want you.
>>39935384>>Yes, I'm sure. I want you.>"Aren't you?" He asks back. "Are you sure you want me?"Well regardless of whether or not he becomes the manse's AI he's still going to be Pearl's City-God, we're going to have him one way or the other and I'd like to be able to trust him and have him trust us.
>>39935475it's pretty much enslaving him to the city, yes it is sacrificing him
>>39935384>I don't know
EF, could you explain what's the difference between being city-god and the city's AI? IC or OOC, doesn't matter, unless you cannot answer that.
>>39935384>Yes, I'm sure. I want you.Whoever becomes the AI will be bound to the city. If we create an AI we will have the exact same problem.
>>39935384>What are the full consequences of making you the AI?
>>39935541>EF, could you explain what's the difference between being city-god and the city's AI? IC or OOC, doesn't matter, unless you cannot answer that.As an AI:1) he would be physically bound to the manse. Even a city god isn't bound to his domain, generally.2) he would be the one handling most of the Manse's function. A god doesn't have that level of hands-on control on his domain.3) one is "of the city", the other is "of the manse". the manse is going to be an important but small part of the city, remember.Mostly these.
>>39935590>3) one is "of the city", the other is "of the manse". the manse is going to be an important but small part of the city, remember.but isn't the AI for the entire city, manse included?I am incredibly confused about how this lines up with what we first ordered for the city
>>39935610>but isn't the AI for the entire city, manse included?The AI can affect things around the city, but it'd going to take a lot of work and materials to make it omnipresent in the entire city. Like, we're talking very long-term. Right now, the best you can do is just put the Manse building and immediate surroundings under AI supervision.
Ok, so Shining Jewel is the god of the manse, who will then become the city-god? If he becomes the AI, he will be stuck as the Manse's god?
"...I don't know." You admit, gently standing back up from the table as you down the rest of the tea. "We've barely met, and you have been just born on top of that. And besides, you said that there is not much you can do to help us.""No." He admits. "I will, when I will be able to."Well, he does seem to mean well, at least."...I don't have an answer yet." You tell him. "Whether you are the one who will become my Manse's Intelligence, or stay the City God of Pearl... Or even whether my Manse will have an Intelligence in the first place, I haven't decided yet."He nods."But, when I will have an answer, you'll be the first to know."As you turn to leave, your servants in tow, Millian tugs at a corner of your dress to draw your attention.You turn, and you see Shining Jewel following you nonchalantly."I'm sorry?" You ask."Pearl is my city. You're heading back there, right?">Yes>No, actually I'm going (place). (true)>No, actually I'm going (place). (lie)>(other)
>>39935815>No, actually I'm going (place). (true)Silk's to pick her up, then we're heading back to PearlSilk's room is ready for her yes?

>>39935815>YesEven if we wanted to head elsewhere we got to go to Pearl and pick up Tia first.Talk to him about Dancing Smoke though, that's his Mom/Dad and we're planning on waking her up soon
>>39935843>>39935850I thought we were waiting for Val to get here so she can set things up.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>39935815>YesThen we can check on whether the manse is ready for Silk. Also, let's try and see what he knows about Dancing Smoke/Tianna
>>39935815>YesStop wasting time guys. we took a very short time of forsilk and only visited yaraon to see what he's doing and because it's on the wayLet's get back to work
>>39935964What work is left for Maka to do?
>>39935878I have no idea, I thought the room was complete and that we were already bringing Silk with us, but theres been no mention of her at all
"...Yes, I'm going back. Want to tag along?" You offer.He just nods and walks.Along the road, you can hear Regis and Jewel talking."So... you're a god, yeah?""Correct.""And you were born...""Three days ago." He replies, calmly.Regis scratches his head, clearly confused as to how to break the ice with the laconic god. "So, how's it like, being a god?""...Normal." He replies, clearly a bit puzzled by the question."So." You butt in, much to your butler's relief. "What do you know of your mother's situation?""You're planning to reawaken her."THAT was direct. "Yes. Is that wrong?""No." He nods to himself, as if satisfied by that answer. ...Either your or his."Did you always know that that thing is here?" You ask him back."About that? Yes. I can feel the heartbeat. Underground." He stomps one foot to underline his words. "When you'll reawaken her, she'll get her heart back.""What about you?" You want to know."I'm not connected to any of it. I'm new. I'm just a city god." He smiles.Regis and Millian seem terminally confused by your conversation, but they just let it pass.>Ask something specific (what?)>Complete the journey back to Pearl.
>>39936115>Complete the journey back to Pearl.
>>39936115are we bringing Silk with us? I thought we voted for that last thread, but don't know if her room is ready yet
>>39936115>If you are just a city-god, then how can you feel "it"?>Have you and Dancing Smoke met already?>You are cute.>How do you know everything?
>>39936115>>Complete the journey back to Pearl.>>39936135We're waiting for Val and for Silk to get a bit more gossamer so she can leave behind the marble we were talking about. Now that I think about it, didn't Val want to have a lot of Wyld nearby for a new Charm she got?
>>39936135Silk needs to gather some Gossamer before she can move to the Manse, remember? You said that she's allowed to "hunt" for it as long as she doesn't hurt anyone.
>>39936115>Why are you so eager to become the AI?This bothers me a lot.
>>39936186>You said that she's allowed to "hunt" for it as long as she doesn't hurt anyone.I'm really not a fan of that long-term though, given the opportunity I'd like to go out and hunt fae and steal their lunch Gossamer instead to build her supply, maybe make a business out of it offer our services in Fae hunting to anyone who want to get rid of any nearby Wyld incursions.
>>39936218>bully the fae and give their lunch money to our pet faethat is an awesome mental image
>>39936218We're on the Eve of a giant war, we can't afford to jerk off other Fae for Gossamer.
>>39936196Similar position as his mom, who at the height of her power was incredibly important? It isn't guaranteed he'll be cut off from Yu'shan forever either, given his mom's position. And eager isn't the word I'd use; we were the ones who brought it up
>>39936239It's why I said long-term, I'm aware we don't have time for it right now.
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>39936115>Complete the journey back to Pearl.
>>39936186Hey EF quick question, how are you going to resolve the Horizon-To-Horizon roll for everyone?Are you going to roll it separately yourself?
>>39936249That isn't a particularly sustainable long term plan
>>39936115>Why are you...like this?His tone and lack of enthusiasm is distressing.
>>39936365>His tone and lack of enthusiasm is distressing.I know, right? I don't want someone like this being the AI of our manse. I want someone a bit more cheerful.
>>39936365>>39936376Relax, he's like three days old, he'll grow up soon-ish.
"...But if you're just a city god, how can you feel it?" You must wonder."I just do." He replies, simply."Did you see her, by the way?""She was there when I was born. Came to visit. That's when I understood.""But she-""No. She doesn't. Not yet.""You didn't tell her.""She wouldn't understand."So small and already acting like a rebellious teenager? You chuckle. "Why were you so eager of becoming the Manse's Intelligence?""Why not." He just replies. "I can be your city's god and your manse's Intelligence at the same time. Isn't that better than just being one or the other?"He can? While you were talking, you've arrived back to Pearl. Or rather, the large construction yard from where Pearl is being born. And- you're quite surprised and delighted to see it in full activity, with Mikahil walking around, rolls of paper in his hands, barely visible through the gaggle of people following him. He seems to be giving orders and directions, and several (but not all) of the men with him seem to be from off-island.With the corner of your eye, you just barely spot Five Tails sitting comfortably on one of the topmost branches of a nearby tree, calmly keeping the situation under control.Checking again, Shining Jewel appears to have just dematerialized and disappeared. He probably just melded with his city.>Ask Mikahil how things are going.>Return to your "throne room" and see if more work has piled up while you were away.>Go and see Zareen, ask her for a report.>Walk up to Five Tails, ask her for a report.>(Other?)

>>39936326Roll separately for important and named NPCs, and average the roll for the mass.You walk up to the small crows that has assembled around Mikahil, and they part to let you meet. Mikahil, absorbed in his own business, didn't even notice you approaching."...Oh! Maka!" He finally spots you, and starts stuffing all those papers under his arm."Good thing you managed to arrive in time. I wasn't sure I could handle all the work here on my own." You welcome him. "How are things going?"He grins smugly and flings a coin at you.You catch it in mid-air. It's a large, heavy round coin, stamped in gold and with quite some skill, you realize as you turn it in your fingers. On one side, you can see a blazing sunburst, with no lettering around it and no other details save the faint effigy of a flower within the disc.On the other, your profile - rather flattering, to boot, and skillfully executed, with shortened lettering around it, in Seatongue and Riverspeak, spelling "QUEEN MAKA OF GEM AND TIANNA", the year - "RY 768" - and the value, "1 FLORIN". "I weighted it so it would be priced at 13 guild silver dinars, and five of them would make one red cowrie. Easy conversion in both systems, rather than messing with fractions. It's just a prototype, so feel free to make any corrections." He sounds quite proud of his job.>Should we be using the RY datation?>Why the flower and Florin name?>I want you to change the lettering. (to what?)>I want you to change my portrait. (to what?)>I want you to change the sun symbol. (to what?)>I want you to change the weight and value.

"...It's really good."You mean it. The quality of the mint is quite a cut above that of most city-minted coins you've seen and on par with the product of the best professional minters the Guild has to offer. You have to wonder if this was Valeriana who managed to find the time to work on this as well (unlikely), if it was subcontracted to some surprisingly skilled artisan in Tianna (a bit more likely), or if Mikahil can...Actually, nevermind. Looking at that smug face in front of you, you KNOW he must've done it himself, otherwise he wouldn't be so damn proud of it. And you wouldn't put Mikahil beyond having a background in professional coin falsification, thinking about it."Why the flower? And the name?""Blame Pyre Spark. He gave me the idea of using the flower - the daisy, actually - as part of the solar symbol. She said she thought it wouldn't be right to put the Sun directly on the money - so there's a sunburst-like flower to "stand in" for Him on the tails side. Same reason there's no lettering there, she thought it would just "get in the way"." He shrugs. "At first I thought it was just her being weird, but I thought I'd give it a try, and then show it to you.""Mh." You rub your chin. "Still think it should have lettering. Maybe on the heads side if not on the tails. Something like, "Praise Be To The Unconquered Sun.""That's a bit long, but I can use a short version or a monogram." He nods."Should we add a pearl to it?" You wonder, then."Could work, but where? Behind your profile? The problem with pearls is that they just look like circles out of context.""Mh. Maybe on an earring or necklace? Think you can add it as a detail, or it'll be too small?" You wonder."I sure can." That confirms your suspicion."Would it be too much to ask for a frontal view instead of a profile?""Just warning you, I can't fit your tits on the coin."(cont.)

"I-" you groan, realizing you were about to give him a serious answer for a moment. He giggles. "Just-""Okay, don't worry, I can do it." He smirks. "Mh. I kind of wanted to change the lettering. And... Are we sure we want to use the Realm calendar?" You ask your final doubt."Everyone else uses that. You want to start a new calendar yourself?" >Yes.>No.combined with:> Lettering: just my name.> Lettering: just my name and the title "queen".> Lettering: put me as queen of Gem.> Lettering: put me as queen of Pearl.> Lettering: put me as queen of Tianna.> Lettering: put me as queen of Gem and Tianna.> Lettering: put me as queen of Gem and Pearl.> Lettering: put me as queen of Pearl and Tianna.> Lettering: put me as queen of Gem, Pearl and Tianna.> Lettering: (Other?).
>>39937234>Yes.>Lettering: put me as queen of Gem, Pearl and Tianna.Holy shit, Maka's own calendar. Year zero has to be either when she got to Tianna or met Tia. Or the festival. Or the Marriage with Tia and Amata.
>>39937234>Yes.> Lettering: put me as queen of Gem, Pearl and Tianna.Just enough first age for my taste
>>39937234>Lettering: just my name and the title "queen".I don't want to have to change the lettering each time our nation grows, you know.
>>39937234>Yes>Lettering: just my name and the title "queen".Before/After Exaltation?
>>39937220Horizon to Horizon doesn't use charms, that's what it means my unaugmented, it's a straight ten dice roll, but like it doesn't really matter either way, just asking.>>39937234>>No.> Lettering: just my name and the title "queen".I don't want to take attention away from Amata as Queen of Tianna and making our own calender would make the Realm angry at us when we don't want to bother them yet.
>>39937234>No.> Lettering: put me as queen of Gem and Pearl.
>>39937234>Yes.> Lettering: just my name and the title "queen".It would get inconvenient if we had to reissue coins every time our domain expanded.
>Lettering: just my name and the title "queen".>>39937280This guy has a point. What, you mean we're NOT going to conquer the entire West? After a while we're going to run out of space on the coin.
>>39937234>Yes>Lettering: just my name and the title "queen".Yeah, makes sense. Soon Maka will be just Queen, anyway, or rather, Empress.
>>39937318Of course we're not going to conquer the entire west.We're gonna be queen of all creation, just like the last person who go Senpai robotics them.
>>39937341>go Senpai roboticsGot Senpai to notice themFuck my phone's autocorrect

>>39937234>No.> Lettering: just my name and the title "queen".
>>39937234What's Mik's opinion on a new calender?
>>39937234>Yes>Lettering: put me as queen of Gem, Pearl and Tianna.Independence from the Realm in everything, ho! We won't need to change the coin. After all, there will be only three Kingdoms: Pearl, Tianna and Gem, everything else will be just territories.
>>39937463>After all, there will be only three Kingdoms: Pearl, Tianna and Gem, everything else will be just territories.That sounds like really crappy way to split up Creation, especially since two of those Kingdoms have their capitals on the same island.

>almost equal "yes" and "no" votes>oh boy."...Actually, just leave year of minting out." You grumble. Part of you wants to just keep using RY as a matter of expedience, part of you wants to change it, but... putting your year of exaltation as year 0 is maybe too presumptuous? You're too undecided."...Alright, that's unconventional, but it wouldn't be the first currency without that. And the rest?""Just put Queen Maka."You notice he's been taking notes on his papers. "Alright, will do.""How are things other than that?""When I left, Team Sorcerer back in Tianna were getting serious. I think we'll have all the manpower we need and then some very soon.""Any news from Valeriana?""When I left, she was deep into something she called the "Five Trials". Apparently part of the initiation to get Sorcery herself. If she completed them...""...I don't know. I hope it's not a bad idea to rush on something as delicate as sorcery." You sigh. Little you can do but hope for the best. You look at the sun, high in the sky. Noon of the fourth day. You still have two days and a half left before the arrival of the Silver Prince's fleet. A bit more if Ocean Father slows them down a bit...(cont.)
You blink for a moment as you notice something moving at the corner of your vision. Five Tails just leaps off the branch she was sitting from high into the air, almost unrealistically high even considering everything an Exalted could use to pull it off.You crane her neck to follow her trajectory, but can't follow her quick enough: you just hear the dull "thud" noise of two bodies colliding, and then the quick pinging of steel on steel as she plummets to the ground, slamming hard enough to crack a crater in the rocky ground nearby as workers scatter with cries of surprise.Finally stopped, you manage to look at her: a perfect three-point landing, her hands wrapped around something black and metallic pinned under her. You briefly catch sight of her legs shifting back to normal human legs and feathers disappearing into her skin.The black and metallic figure she has pinned under her cranes his neck up. "That was rude." Soaring Crimson Phoenix complains."Apologies." Five Tails replies, without giving him one inch."If it isn't our Abyssal friend." You welcome him with a bit of sarcasm."Pleasure to be your guest, as usual." He replies."Alright, you can let him go." Mikahil reassures Five Tails, who does so with caution before stepping back.He stands back up, massaging his neck. "We finished fortifying the Dark Omen. If you want, we can lend you a hand with your own fortress. Our undead workforce is idle right now, and Mistress thought you might have some use for them.">Yes, send them here and have them help out.>No, that would really scare everyone.>(Other?)
>>39937806>Yes, send them here and have them help out.The undead need employment too.

>>39937806>>Yes, send them here and have them help out.Put them under Mik and make an announcement to the city, we technically already told them they would be helping back when we first spoke, but it would be good to reassure them again
>>39937806>Yes, send them here and have them help out.We're it just about any other situation I'd say no, but time being as tight as it is we need all the help finishing the manse we can get
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>39937854Seconded.
>>39937806Five-Tails had to fly up to Phoenix, I bet that fucker has a pair of god damn Wings of the Raptor. I am so mad and jealous
>>39937898That or the Abyssal equivalent of Eagle Wing Style since he's a Day Caste (if there is one; never looked at Abyssals much).
>>39937936By RAW it can't be used during the day, but it's possible EF changed it and that's what he used
"...Yes, Have her send them here and help out. Mik, think you can handle them?""I'm an Eclipse." He replies.You smile."Besides, the people here already know that we're going to ask cats and dogs for help. I don't think there's going to be panic. If anything, I think that people here will have their morale boosted by that much once they realize that they have exalted, gods, deathlords and demons, all on their side, working at the same project.""Only if you sell them on the idea.""Selling is my specialty." He grins, and walks away.Without saying another word, Phoenix has silently disappeared. Five Tails is back on her treetop, as tranquil as before.>Go talk with Five Tails>Head to the "Throne Room">Ask for Zareen's report>(Other?)

You give a wave at Five Tails (who replies in a rather unconvincing manner) and head for the barracks, where you know you can find Zareen.It doesn't take quite that long to see her, because you actually find her coming out to meet you. At first you're worried that she might have bad news because of this, but she doesn't look QUITE that distressed."Zareen." You nod at her. "What's up?""We got some... rather suspicious god-blooded asking for you.""Rather suspicious?" You reply. "You'll see." She invites you, dragging you along to the small, isolated brickhouse you've been using as impromptu jail here in Pearl. Unused up to now, actually.Actually, it still seems unused, with the grate open and the inside of the small room empty."...Zareen?"NOW she looks distressed. "Alright, I SWEAR she was here up to a moment ago.""Yeah, I believe you." You nod, looking at the footprints in the dust."I haven't gone anywhere, you know." You hear a warm voice greeting you from just behind the small brick construction. Out of the corner steps a tall, shapely woman in rather scanty clothing, whose most distinctive traits are pointy horns and a bright red skin color. Her eyes, a brilliant, bright emerald green, contrast alluringly with her complexion.Your brain races trying to stay on top of the situation. "Alright. Let me guess. You're the "expert" Radiant Starfall contacted?""Expert? In what?" Zareen seems rather suspicious."Demons?" The god-blooded (alright, demon-blooded, it's fairly obvious) suggests with a smirk. "I'm Ririth, by the way. Nice to meet you, Queen Maka.""How did you get out?" Zareen asks."Starfall." Ririth shrugs."That little brat." The dragon-blooded shakes her fist. >So, what's your story?>What can you actually do?>Where is Radiant Starfall? Wasn't she right here?>Why should I trust you with this, anyway?>(Other?)
>>39938430>So, what's your story?>What can you actually do?My boners.

>>39938560Unf. Funk is the best. If I get some art I'm gonna ask something for this girl.
>>39938430>So, what's your story?>What can you actually do?>Where is Radiant Starfall? Wasn't she right here?
"So, what can you actually do?" You ask, leaning closer."Well, I think I'm a fairly decent dancer- for, ah, certain types of dances at least. And I traveled a lot and seen a lot of places, if that counts." She explains."I meant for the thing we called you here for." You reply."Oh! That, yes. Well, I wouldn't call it something I CAN DO. It's more like... it happens?" She wonders. "Demons just do what I tell them to.""What if they're bound?""Well, I never really tested it seriously. It just always happens. that's it." She's rather nonchalant."I wonder why."She looks at you with those green, green eyes, shining almost like small suns of all the wrong colors. "Maybe it's just a matter of being polite and using please and thank you?""Maybe." you admit. "So, what's your story?""It's rather long and I don't think I should start with my family.""Bad situation at home?" You ask.She seems to stare in the distance. "Rather than "bad"... I'd probably just call it "weird".""Anything to do with the Cult of the Seventh Eye?"She seems to jump at the name. "...So, she told you about them?""After hearing about it, it wasn't easy talking Amata into... well, not arresting you, much less give you this job."She nods, staring at the ground as if reminiscing something. "...I made a mistake. But I never intended to hurt anyone.""Yeah, your cult got hijacked by a group of crazies called the Crimson Cabal, right? I heard about it.""It wasn't really a cult..." She mumbles. "I was just doing a selfish thing. I... don't like talking about it. I was being silly and wrong. Can we just... forget about it? I want to make up for my mistake. I'll help. I can direct any demons you're calling for this building, and keep both them and the humans working with them sane and safe. I promise.">Ask her about her family>Ask her about the cult>Accept her help>Ask for Mikahil to sanctify this Oath>Refuse her help>(Other?)
>>39938803>Ask her about her family>Accept her help
>>39938803>>Ask her about the cultI'd like to know what happened, Radiant trusts her and I want to trust her too, but I can't do that without knowing what happened
>>39938803>Ask for Mikahil to sanctify this Oath
>>39938803>Ask her about the cult>Accept her helpWe need to know, Radiant almost got sacrificed by her cult, but she trusts her so we want to too.

>>39938803Changed vote to copy >>39938925
"So, you made the cult to get back in touch with your family?" You put two and two together and guess."Yeah." She nods. "It wasn't a cult at that point, just some people I asked to help. Friends, acquaintances. There wasn't a religious part, we weren't worshiping anything. Just trying to make a link to Malfeas."That sounds hilariously bad in your head, but you're still willing to leave her the benefit of the doubt."Did you manage to do that?""No." She shakes her head. "A few of the people involved... those that were more knowledgeable on the ways to contact Malfeas from Creation... I was wrong to trust them. They weren't out to help me. They locked me up and hijacked the cult.""...Kept you alive because they wanted to use your connection?" Another guess, an easy one.She nods. "I'm not sure what they wanted to do. It involved blood sacrifice at Calibration, in any case. I was probably going to be the final sacrifice. But...""But then Starfall Exalted and saved the situation." You know the rest of the story. "Can you tell me about your family?" You ask, feeling curious."I..." She winces. "It's... complicated. I don't really want to talk about it." She rolls her eyes. As if her horns weren't hint enough of how complicated her family story is, she seems to say.>Insist. (s+z)>You con't have to tell me if you don't want to.

I'll keep it a secret if you want me to.""It's not that, I just...""And... there's no reason to feel shy or ashamed. I won't judge you.""Really."Zareen takes a sudden step back with a gasp of surprise. The area around you seems to have entirely changed hue, with all colors shifting harshly. Her skin is pink, yours is blue, your hair orange, the rocky ground violet, the sky grey, lit by an emerald sun.The only color to remain unchanged is the deep fire-green of her eyes, which becomes bright enough to light the entire area. But it is a light that casts no shadows.The clouds blow past you way too fast, and the sky seems to bend around you like a ball."Even if I told you who my father is, you would not judge me for it? Telling my lineage has never turned out well for me. Why should you be any different?">Understand. (m+t) (Willpower)>Because i can see your pretty green eyes are filled with tears.

You lean closer and brush a finger on her cheeks, causing her to jolt softly in surprise."...Because I can see your pretty green eyes are filled with tears."The colors return to normal.She leans onto you. "I will not condemn you for what you are, Ririth. I understand you never meant to hurt people. And you can't choose your family."She lets out a long, deep sigh. "Even if I could, despite everything... I wouldn't change it. Because... I love my dad.""Nothing wrong with that.""My dad is Ligier.""Oh." You reply. "...I think I heard that name somewhere."She giggles in your arms. At least she's got some of her good spirits back. "Let's say he's a very important demon, and when people find this out, they usually try to research how to cut me open in the proper way to make him appear in Creation.""Is this what happened with the Cult?"She nods. "...Yeah.""Could they even do that?""Maybe only the very mightiest of the Exalted could have a slim chance to bind him and bend him to their will. But greed and lust for power will just shut out reason and common sense." She lets go of you. "And anyway... I might have my surprises, but I'm not a piñata filled with Third Circle Demons.

You hug her tightly. "You'll be safe with me. No one will hurt you. I promise."You feel her relaxing in your hands. Her body feels strangely stiff still, like if she was made from warm, hard metal or chiseled stone, covered by only a thin layer of soft flesh....She called him her dad, but she didn't tell you everything. Still, now you know.She let you know, by letting you get this close to her.Close enough to touch her, to let your fingers trace the lines running under her skin.Seams of metallic plates, elaborate clockwork joints, small screws and bolts you can barely feel under her skin holding her together..."...Thank you." She whispers."If you want to meet your... your dad again, maybe some of my sorcerer friends can help you." You suggest.She looks straight in your eyes. "Oh. If you did that... I'd be in your debt forever.""You're making me like the prospect more and more." You smile. "Those demons my friends are summoning... They're not here yet. We have some time, don't we?"She returns your mischievous glance.Behind you, Zareen slowly facepalms.[SESSION END]

>>39940464>FIVEFOLD BULWARK STANCE: (1C) +3d to your Defense pool for the scene.Since SHS doesn't add to defense
>>39940464I'd vote for Regiment-Slaying Strike and Courtier's Eye Technique, but I don't know if people have arguments for something else.
>>39940464>FIVEFOLD BULWARK STANCE: (1C) +3d to your Defense pool for the scene.More tankDoes SUN KING'S RADIANCE work on people with split loyalties? Like those Loyal to Maka and Amata?
>>39940464Twilight 3Night 3Eclipse 3
>>39940274Haha, Robotic Malfeas-spawn getThat's another item for the great list of strange amd wonderful beings that Maka has screwed.
>>39940464>FIVEFOLD BULWARK STANCE: (1C) +3d to your Defense pool for the scene.I'd also like to save for Phys 4, since they would bump up our soak, health, DV, damage, and feats of strength as well as just our dice pool.
>>39940379>>39940453Alright, 22 XP. Man. Considering everything, one can really argue that Maka is growing in power so much faster than any other "normal" Solar Exalted precisely because she's having so much sex all the time.Remember that writefaggotry and such also count, if you're not confident in your art skills.>>39940519Yes as long as those loyalties do not conflict.For any question, there's my ask.fm.With a bit of luck, i might be able to run tomorrow too. Check the twitter for updates.

>I'd also like to save for Phys 4, since they would bump up our soak, health, DV, damage, and feats of strength as well as just our dice pool.I think we have enough for that now. It's current phys*5 ie 15.

>>39940598Not if we buy Bulwark stance which I want first
Bravo Maka, you never disappoint. And bravo EF, for finally doing it.
>>39940656There is also a nude version. Grab it folkshttp://i.imgur.com/BU70mdK.png
>>39940680Who's the artist?
>>39940656Is the new demon girl from something I should know?
>SUN-KING RADIANCE (Perm.) Anyone loyal to you uses your mental defense rather than their own, if your score is higher.
>>39940701By amazing "coincidence" she looks like the MC to anther quest which is run by EF's friend
>>39940656I thought it had a dick. Couldn't put my finger on why, but a couple phrases in the descriptions clued me in.I'm alright with it.
EF can we get clarification on whether the +3 dice that Fivefold Bulwark Stance adds is then divided by 2?
>>39940464>FIVEFOLD BULWARK STANCE: (1C) +3d to your Defense pool for the scene.Tonktonktonk.
Also, I just want to say this as a random thought that I want to share, but don't think too much of it: I really like the idea of Maka's performance as specialized in dance, but dance is really difficult to properly convey in Quest format, since personally I'm not a dance expert or aficionado and I know next to nothing to it, so it's hard for me to describe them properly within a character limit, unlike, say, song, where a bit of description and lyrics are enough, usually.So whenever people (especially Maka) dance in this quest, please be patient. Actually, from now on, I might think of attaching lyrics to them and make them song-and-dance, sometimes. To make them more immediate, if no one dislikes the idea.(in b4 Maka as a Pop Idol)>>39940742Yes, it's a pool bonus, your new DV calculation becomes (phys + dawn + 3) / 2
>>39940008>>You'll be safe with me. No one will hurt you. I promise. (truth)>>If you want to meet your dad again, maybe some of my sorcerer friends can help you.I've noticed that we're pretty much Solar Sailor Moon, Saving People with Friendship.
>>39940734Start Over quest by Magical Princeas
>>39940699MyraG. IIRC, his/her pen name was ChesireCatSmile34 or something, on hentai-foundry. Unfortunately, I am not finding the profile agian, but I know they have their own website and works/worked on fenoxo's TiTS
>>39940767Yeah, you're really playing as that.And that's awesome.(big fan here)
>>39940761>Actually, from now on, I might think of attaching lyrics to them and make them song-and-dance, sometimes. To make them more immediate, if no one dislikes the idea.>(in b4 Maka as a Pop Idol)I love it to be honest
Is there a folder with all the Exalted Quest fanart in it, by any chance?
>>39940767>I've noticed that we're pretty much Solar Sailor Moon, Saving People with Friendship.>Solar Sailor MoonNow I want a picture of Maka as Sailor Galaxia
>>39940767>>39940788It's the best.
>>39940761>pop idolThat seems Radiant's schtick, tbh, but I llike it. Dance is hard in text form, not only in quest (but it takes longer to do in quest format), so I understand.We need PHANTOM-CONJURING PERFORMANCE for that, then.
>>39940740>I thought it had a dick. Couldn't put my finger on why, but a couple phrases in the descriptions clued me in.Like what?
>>39940834Something I definitely want later
>>39940838>"Believe me." She replies, surly. "You don't know anything about my package."and>She lets go of you. "And anyway... I might have my surprises, but I'm not a piñata filled with Third Circle Demons. It's not how it works."Maybe my ra/d/ar is too finely calibrated.
>>39940834Nah, Janet is a magical girl. Totally different.She'd be to shy to sing and dance in front of a crowd
>>39940809There is the ebook/pdfs. Volume 5 has all the fanart, until thread 70 I think.
>>39940656>>39940680>Shemale demonwoman being topped by glorious brown amazon goddessPretty sure I am about to lose consciousness by way of all the blood in my body suddenly rushing downwards at speed.No regrets.
>>39940761>(in b4 Maka as a Pop Idol)Sure, there are some things I've thought about that would be great for that. I'm super okay with that.
>>39940963She has both sets though.
>>39940656I haven't caught up with SOQ in forever, did a not!Maka appear there too?
>>39940606>boosting noncombat skills before biggest fightWhy? Hasn't Maka been outclassed/outright knocked out enough during major fights?
>>39940995Call an ambulance
>>39940933I haven't updated that witht he recent threads yet, due to CIRCUMSTANCES.>>39941014Nope. Somethig to ask the QM about it.
>>39940464Dawn 4, FIVEFOLD BULWARK STANCE. Boosts our DV to 5 (from 3), and our combat dicepool to 10
>>39941067At full combat ready with our artifacts we would be at DV 6
>>39941088Speaking off our glove and heels, what do you guys think about the name Love Taps for them?I had been thinking we could go for something a little sexual and a little funny.
>>39940933Got a link to that?
>>39941122I like it. >>39941164Here you go friend.https://www.dropbox.com/s/1kcwiwseyoqekja/Exalted%20Quest%201-70%20%5Bpdf%5D.rar?dl=0
>>39941088So DV 6, Soak 9pity we don't have enough for physical as well. DV 6 Soak 10 would be awesome.
>>39941179Do you happen to have a folder for them.The PDF is nice, but I'd like to have the full resolution image for them.
>>39941203I voted to save for Phys since we have almost enough for it if we just buy one charm.
I'm signing off, guys. Remember: ask.fm for any question you might have, twitter for updates on tomorrow, and art or writefaggotry for XP!
>>39940590>Remember that writefaggotry and such also count, if you're not confident in your art skills.The hell would someone even write?Anyone got any ideas?
>>39940761>(in b4 Maka as a Pop Idol)>implying she isn't alreadyShe's got a cult and everything.
>>39941257Lewds, off screen moments, other people's POV
>>39940546I wonder if she and Starfall are an item
>>39941122I'll take it
>>39941301I'm uncreative. Consider this a platform to request shitty writefagging
>>39936881>On the other, your profile - rather flattering, to boot, and skillfully executed, with shortened lettering around it, in Seatongue and Riverspeak, spelling "QUEEN MAKA OF GEM AND TIANNA"Haha, fuck yes, Horizon to Horizon here we come.Spend that shit as fast as we can. Get it circulating.>>39940464It might be too late to vote, but I want Fivefold Bulwark Stance (10 XP) and either +1 or +2 Dawn.
>>39940590>Man. Considering everything, one can really argue that Maka is growing in power so much faster than any other "normal" Solar Exalted precisely because she's having so much sex all the time.As expected of Maka!Soon, she will bone the Unconquered Sun!
>>39941257Smut, obviously.Make it cute smut
>>39941257Do Regis and Milliam's first time.Or one of Maka's orgies.
>>39941257I might write something.You guys are fine with Amata femdom, right?
>>39941446Femdom isn't my thing, but it certainly fits her character.
>>39941347Oh boy, and that'd be the one person that Maka could not possibly hope to outsex.
>>39940780Really?I thought the MC was supposed to be rather small, skinny and somewhat plain-looking
>>39941446More of the wife is always appreciated
>>39941446That depends.It would have to be set before or shortly after our Exaltation. As we are now the only people I can imagine topping Maka is Tia and the Deathlord whose name escapes me at the moment.
>>39941536dude, you don't need to be physically stronger than someone to top them.
>>39940782>>39940699Aha, found it! Artist goes by ChesireCatSmile37, not 34, silly me. Here is a link to the website: http://ccs37.weebly.com/
>>39941554No, but force of personality matters as well. We tend to steamroll everyone but Tia, and the Deathlord.And Maybe Sam, but that's more of us teaching him to be a dom
>>39941554I don't just mean physically.I mean those two are the only ones I can imagine Maka would LET top her (in Tia's case) or be unable to stop (in the deathlords) from doing so.
>>39941474Is it Femdom if she's domming another woman?
>>39941596Maka let Samiel dom her and DS.>>39941493Um, no. That's another character, the half-elf. Lillith has a hourglass figure and special appendages.
>>39941536You can voluntarily be dommed, you know. If Maka let's her and willingly follows her orders then yes she can be dommed.
>>39941584>No, but force of personality matters as well.Not really. You can have bottoms or subs with extremely strong forces of personality, and tops or doms who are much more socially mild. It's all a mutual social contract, not one based on pushing/forcing someone.
>>39941536>Deathlord whose name escapes me at the moment.The Tyrant of the Doomsday MachineWe dommed pretty good last time, though.
>>39941562Alright, thank you anon.
>>39941704I know that, but I just can't see it happening.I can only see her letting Tia do that, and the Deathlord being able to do so regardless of Maka's own stance on the issue.
>>39941536Maka seems like the sort to swap roles near constantly.I mean, given the diverse cast of beings that she bones on a regular basis, it's probably a necessity.
>>39941489At least Maka will always have a goal to strive towards and something to keep her occupiedBecause, as we know, a bored Solar means Bad Things™ happen.
>>39941821Except not really, the only times I remember ?Maka being the sub was when we were helping Samiel be more assertive, and whenever Tia manages to overpower us. Every other time I can think of, we've been the one in charge.
>>39941889No, Maka initiates, but that isn't the same as taking charge.
>>39941122>Love TapsI like it.
>>39941889Look, you clearly don't understand this.There's no shame in that. Walk away from the conversation.
>>39942000What specifically don't I understand?
>ITT: autists fail at understanding human relationships and think it works like in their porn
>>39941179>dropboxEh, can you put it on mediafire?
>>39941889I don't think you really understand what the submissive role is, anon. You can initiate sex without being a top or being dominant. And Maka consistently seems to take the roll of a bottom, at the very least, and seems to have a 'spoiled sub' streak in her.
>>39942085Unless someone does that now, I will do it until next thread.
>>39942000The specifics of sexual relationships and the defined roles that make them up.If anything, Maka leans more towards sub, but she mixes things up a lot, so it averages out.
>>39942128>spoiled subShe is, isn't she.
>>39942128>You can initiate sex without being a top or being dominant.I understand that completely.>And Maka consistently seems to take the roll of a bottom, at the very least, and seems to have a 'spoiled sub' streak in her.I have never got that impression except for the times mentioned here >>39941889.
>>39940740>I thought it had a dick.>>39940895>Maybe my ra/d/ar is too finely calibrated.Look closely at her crotch.
>>39942166>She is, isn't she.Yup. She's a spoiled and 'uppity' sub. She likes to push the limits of a sexual relationship, and provoke the other party into being more aggressive with her.>>39942177It's not about just downright peacefully submitting. It's about the drive towards forcing or urging others to be more aggressive and active towards her and being on the receiving end of sexual encounters. She typically initiates, but then she pushes others into a usually-top, sometimes-dominant role when she can.She only tends to get dominant when she's trying to prove a point about non-sexual social hierarchy, like when putting Dancing Smoke in her place.There are a lot of different types of subs.
>>39942186He meant he called it before that picture was posted
In case anyone missed it, Maka just got sexier.http://ask.fm/Exaltedfag/answer/127186845014>She also knows how to speak Seatongue to almost native speaker levels, but still keeps a definite southern accent in it. (to date, few people have ever commented about it.)She also has a sexy accent.
>>39942241>She typically initiates, but then she pushes others into a usually-top, sometimes-dominant role when she can.I'm still not seeing it. We've literally destroyed beds having sex with Tia in fights over dominance.
>>39942370I tend to picture Firetongue as being vaguely Arabic (or other Semitic language) with Seatongue being the linguistic equivalent of the melting pot that is the Philippines.So, if you find the Arabic/Israeli accent sexy, then yes, she has a sexy accent.
>>39942128>and seems to have a 'spoiled sub' streak in her.Not really. We've never really clearly described her bedrooms habits outside of general terms, and when we had an argument about whether to top or bottom I recall we settled on doming after a ridiculous bout of samefaggotry on all sides.
>>39942496Settled nothing, every time this discussion comes up it always ends with Maka either bring sub or switch
>>39942702Not really. Some argue dom, some sub and some switch. Everyone is convinced their side won, then we do this again in several months.
>>39942702To clarify, I recall it was about one specific instance of whether do Dom or Sub, not all of time.
>>39942763Not really. The 'switch' people tend to be subs conceding partially to the 'dom' people. The largest contingent always starts out sub and then gets whittled down by argument fatigue.
>>39942793Like I said, everyone is convinced their side won. I personally see it as the exact opposite.
>>39940080yeah, he's got people for that.by which I mean 'his intimacy towards "NOBODY FUCKS WITH MY THINGS" runs one of the largest demonic cults in Creation, based out of the South, for which she is the chief enforcer. also she is good enough at her job that the Bureaus of Destiny occasionally subcontract her.'
>>39942891she is also one of the most frequently summoned of the Demons of the Second Circle, on grounds she asks for very little beyond a thing to guard and an opportunity to murder the people who try to take it from its rightful owners. you summon Sondok, you know what you're going to get, and it's a lot of dead would-be thieves.some of them, admittedly, might not have been trying to take -your- stuff.
>>39940590>Maka is growing in power so much faster than any other "normal" Solar Exalted precisely because she's having so much sex all the time.I think this is a big hint.Maka might be a succubus.
>>39943636>Maka might be a succubus.>might be
>>39941122I'll fifth it I think we're at.Unrelated note, does anyone know if demon-blood are Creatures of Darkness?
