It's the 26th of Ascending Earth. Only two days have passed from the battle that nearly destroyed Tianna and caused so much damage all across the island.Refugees are being helped and the ruins and rubble caused by the fighting and the earthquake have been cleared. It'll probably be a few months before life returns to normal, but at least now you're not in an emergency any more.Well, except for Valeriana. You have several people who are skilled in crafts or at directing work crews and organizing stuff, but Valeriana is really the only civil engineer of Exalted level you can rely on. Zaan is more of a sorceror specialist, and Irene is closer to a military engineer, and they're both already helping however they can.You have a lot of things to ask her, but you realize she must be incredibly overworked, and will probably stay that way for quite a while.But you also have other issues to worry about. You wanted to talk to your Abyssal "allies" about their current situation, what with having lost their Deathlord and being essentially stranded in Creation. And you'll have to check on Pearl, since you didn't have time to return there until now. Mikahil is of the opinion that expanding Tianna's influence on the Neck is the next logical step, and a necessary one, and he seems to trust you to work on it on your own, so you could stand to do some research on the subject. You also want to make plans yourself, for Gem, where your parents might still be prisoner... though it's really distant from here. And you'll have your wedding to worry about as well.On the other hand, you realize glancing behind yourself... you might have gone a bit overboard and managed to KO even the usually-resilient Tia, and your Swift Rider is still in Pearl, which means that you'd have to hitch a ride with another Lunar, or move via more conventional means, if you want to head there.

>Who are we?Maka, an exiled noble Exalted as a Zenith-caste Solar. Queen of Gem, now ruling the western island of Tianna. You have gathered a vast amount of allies and friends, and defeated every threat to Tianna up to now.You recently discovered that Tianna is actually an artificial island, built around a First Age Titan: an almighty flying fortress. Your forces have crushed the Bodhisattva Anointed by Dark Water, a Deathlord who tried to usurp its power for himself.Now you have built a solid power base, and worked hard to draw the attention and earn the trust of the Unconquered Sun.

>>42124534>Have a private chat with Mikahil about the Neck.I really don't want to forget about the Abyssals, though.
>>42124534>Go and see someone else (who?).Deathlords, can't put them off for too long.
>>42124534>>Have a private chat with Mikahil about the Neck.Him or Amata if he's got things to do.Nice to see you back EF
>>42124556>>42124565>>42124579>>42124590I don't think it's a good idea to ignore the Abyssal. The longer we wait, the harder it will be to deal with them.
>>42124610Waht? You want to go and see some Deathlord?
>>42124523>Seek transportation for the Dark Omen
>>42124610All the Deathlords we know are dead. More dead.
>>42124534>>Seek transportation for Pearl / the Dark Omen.
>>42124610There is no Deathlords around. You probably meant Abyssal, in which case it's the "go to the Dark Omen" option.>>42124599Why vote for talking about the Neck, then? It's not as urgent as the dangerous, leaderless Exalted
>>42124623>>42124638Sorry, meant the Abyssals. I've been up all night.
>>42124610Uhh wut, there ain't no deathlords here anon, and the abyssals at the dark omen is another vote...
>>42124647Then vote for that option.
>>42124534>Seek transportation for the Dark Omen
>>42124661Yeah I'm going to bed. Clearly I'm not up to participating in a thread.
Our transportation could be Tia
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>42124534>Seek transportation for Pearl / the Dark Omen.
>>42124700We knocked her out from all out sexy bullying.Cuz you know, we don't think things through.
>>42124700We knocked her out, so if we want to go to Pearl or Dark Omen now we need to look for someone else.
>>42124724You know, Tianna probably has actual horses we could use.
>>42124618going to Mikahil at the least gives us the option of asking Five Tails for a ride to the abyssals when we're done.
>>42124742We could ask Five Tail from pretty much anywhere, as long as there is someone to carry the message.Or we could just find her and ask
>>42124523Are we still not fully healed?We need to see if Maka has any scars on her.
You've resolved to go and see the Abyssals during the meeting, and everything else can wait in one way or another.However, they're all still in the Dark Omen. By now, probably, Fleurdelis must have returned there as well.You briefly weight your options.>Ask Five Tails. She shouldn't be particularly busy right now.>Ask Talon. He doesn't have anything to do now, you think.>Ask Zaan, even though you think he might be busy with helping the refugees.>Head to the port and get a ship.>Head to the city gates and get a horse.>You could just go on foot. With your endurance, you can run all the way there.>(Other?)
>>42124808Maka was flayed, once, and had no trace after a few days. We weren't hurt that badly during the invasion
>>42124819>Ask Talon. He doesn't have anything to do now, you think.We also haven't seen him a lot since he got un-mindfucked
>>42124819>>Ask Talon. He doesn't have anything to do now, you think.This is also a good time to get to know him a bit better.
>>42124819>>Ask Talon. He doesn't have anything to do now, you think.We don't talk to him enough, also a nice chance to ask if he is Radiant's Mate.
>>42124819>>Ask Talon. He doesn't have anything to do now, you think.>>You could just go on foot. With your endurance, you can run all the way there.No skipping leg days.
>>42124819>Ask Talon. He doesn't have anything to do now, you think.
>>42124819>Ask Talonhe needs screentime
>>42124819>You could just go on foot. With your endurance, you can run all the way there.
You mull about it for a moment, then you go and see Talon, who, to the best of your knowledge, has put up a small tent village with a few of his barbarian warriors just outside Tianna, as his scouts cover the countryside for the (very) few remaining stragglers and deserters from the Prince's forces.It's just outside town, so you leave messages to inform everyone in Tianna of your intention and head out.The reception you get in the village is... respectful. It's just ten or so tents and a palisade around them, with a few horses tied down and twenty or so barbarian warriors. Tall, muscular fellows with lack hair cut very short or arranged in unique patterns. These warriors, much like Tia's Black Talon Tribe, acquitted themselves wonderfully in the battle. Looking at them, they seem quite well equipped for "barbarians": their armor is leather and pelts, but weapons, tools and jewelry are clearly well-crafted bronze. You suspect that, much like Tia's tribe, they derive it from smelting the sands of Tianna, which are, in some places, in the powdered rust of the Titan beneath.They keep their eyes fixed on you as you move past, and don't dare get in our way or disturb you. You interpret that as something akin to respectful submission more than fear, judging by the look in their eyes. Many of them have tattoos in the shape of lunar images or wolves, and you wonder how much of that was influenced by Talon.Speaking of him, you find him relaxing in front of his tent, lying on the ground, looking up at the sky, a fresh new leaf cigar lit between his teeth."Maka." He greets you, sitting up. "To what I owe your visit?">Can you fly me to Pearl?>Is everything alright? Are you fine?>So, what's up with you and Radiant Starfall?>I wanted to ask you something... (what?)>(Other?)
>>42124956>Is everything alright? Are you fine?
>>42124956>>So, what's up with you and Radiant Starfall?I mean yeah how is he and all that, but this is way more important.
>>42124956>>Is everything alright? Are you fine?>>Can you fly me to Pearl?
>>42124956>So, what's up with you and Radiant Starfall?
>>42124956>>Is everything alright? Are you fine?>Can you fly me to Pearl?
>>42124956>>So, what's up with you and Radiant Starfall?
>>42124956>Is everything alright? Are you fine?>So, what's up with you and Radiant Starfall?
>>42124956>Can you fly me to Pearl?>Is everything alright? Are you fine?>So, what's up with you and Radiant Starfall?All of this is important. But in reverse order.
"...Is everything all right?" You ask, sitting next to him.For some reason, he seems... He gives you an odd vibe.He takes a deep puff of smoke, and slowly exhales it in a formless cloud. "...What do you mean?" He asks, defensively? "You came all the way here to ask me that?""No, but I just thought I'd ask." You reply. "I was wondering why you asked to join the team going to Gem.""I told you, I just want to see the South. Seemed like a good excuse as any."You smile. "Isn't it about Starfall?"He takes the cigar out of his mouth. "...That obvious, huh?""Not terribly so, but I'm good at spotting this sort of thing." You nod. "Does she know?""I don't think so, but she could be hiding in those bushes and listening to us right now and we'd never know." He shrugs."So... Are you her Lunar Mate?""I think so." He replies, looking at the cigar idly. "Because I've never really felt like this.""Like how?" You inquire.His ears flick nervously. "She's cute.""She is.""And adorable.""Yes.""And I think I'm in love with her.""Aww.""But she's not my type.""What?" That threw you off for a moment.He sighs. "I want to-" and then stops and looks again at you, giving you a long stare, like only now he's suddenly realizing you're sitting next to him. "...I need to talk to you about something. It might get weird.""I'm getting pretty used to weird." You reply, confident."It's- It's something I wanted to ask you for quite a while. It's something of a sensible topic, but I'd like us to discuss it as reasonable, mature adults." He lowers his tone of voice. The warriors nearby, each minding his own business, make an effort to busy themselves elsewhere.Is he... embarrassed about something?>What... what's wrong? You've never been like this.>Come on, you can ask me anything. I'll listen, and I won't judge you.>Just spill the beans, man.>Can we talk about this on our way to Pearl?>Can we talk about this another time?>(Other?)
Why are we asking him to fly us to Pearl, weren't we going to visit Abyssals first?
>>42125185>Come on, you can ask me anything. I'll listen, and I won't judge you.
>>42125185>Come on, you can ask me anything. I'll listen, and I won't judge you.Giggling isn't judging
>>42125185>>Come on, you can ask me anything. I'll listen, and I won't judge you.Don't be mean.
>>42125185>>Come on, you can ask me anything. I'll listen, and I won't judge you.>>42125190The Abyssals are at the Black Omen which is wrecked nearby Pearl.
>>42125185>Come on, you can ask me anything. I'll listen, and I won't judge you. But I might giggle. A lot.
>>42125190Probably because it's close by and we can pick up our Cool Bike while we're there.
>>42124819Wait, Pearl is a 4 dot solar manse? I thought it was 3. What are we channeling all of that power into again?
>>42125275It's a five dot manse, it's even on our stat sheet.
>>42125185>Come on, you can ask me anything. I'll listen, and I won't judge you.The giggling is a medical condition, Zaan is looking into it.
>>42125307What? I thought it started as a 4 dot water demesne.
>>42125320Pearl is a 5 dot solar Manse because we spent 2 dots from increasing our Social Score improving it.We spent all of it's power making the City around it super awesome.
>>42125330Oh, I get it. Remind me what we are channeling its power into again?
"Come on, you can ask me anything. I'll listen, and I won't judge you."He makes every effort to look dignified and strong, a 240 centimeters tall, probably over 200 kilogram beast of dense bone and trained muscle looking uncomfortably embarrassed in front of you."It's about sex."You smile. "I'm an expert."He rolls his eyes. "...Yes, yes I know. I... I see Millian as... as a little sister. She's adorable. I want to stay by her side and protect her. I love her, but... not in that way. She isn't my type. I wouldn't do anything to her." He pauses. "I don't want her to know yet. She... She's been influenced quite a bit by you. If she knew. she'd probably want to, or at least offer to, you know...""I can see where this is going." You nod wisely.>I think she deserves to know. I can try and explain things to her diplomatically.>I think she should know, and you should tell her. Whenever you feel comfortable, but someday you'll have to.>Don't worry, I'll keep the secret.>She's more mature than you give her credit for. I'd tell her.>(other?)
>>42125320Not even close, it was originally a 3 dot water manse, but we changed it into a 3 dot Solar manse and then boosted it up with extra dots we got from raising our Social.Where have you been for the last like 60 threads?
>>42125338A city intelligence to run city systems, artificial light and power, a bonus to Solars who do stuff inside the manse (I think the bonus is limited to actions of leadership and command) Essence weapon defenses, an artificial Wyld Zone.Probably more stuff but I can't remember it at the top of my head.
>>42125343>I think she is more mature than you give her Credit for and she deserves to know. Though, if you don't feel comfortable, take your time.Either that or play EXALTED MATCH-MAKER
>>42125343You're saying Millian again.>I think she deserves to know. I can try and explain things to her diplomatically.>I think she should know, and you should tell her. Whenever you feel comfortable, but someday you'll have to.>>42125352No, I'm pretty certain it was a 4 dot water manse that we were changing into a 3 dot solar manse....Come on anon, I can't be here all the time. And most of the time I get here when the thread dies anyway, so I can't even ask stuff.
>>42125343>MillianYou meant Radiant, right?>I think she should know, and you should tell her. Whenever you feel comfortable, but someday you'll have to.
>>42125343>I think she should know, and you should tell her. Whenever you feel comfortable, but someday you'll have to.Also I'm assuming you meant Radiant instead of Millian.
>>42125393>>42125384I meant Radiant, yes. Sorry.
>>42125343>She's more mature than you give her credit for. I'd tell her.>I think she deserves to know. I can try and explain things to her diplomatically.
>>42125343>I think she should know, and you should tell her. Whenever you feel comfortable, but someday you'll have to.
>>42125343>(other?)"If you've been in the same room as me when I'm having sex, odds are you've had sex with her already too."
>>42125397Now I can't get the picture of our Maid cuddling up against a curled up Talon out of my head...
>>42125343>I think she should know, and you should tell her. Whenever you feel comfortable, but someday you'll have to.Before I forget, we should ask if he knows any other Lunars from the Silver pact who would be willing to help us dismantle Skullstone's Soul forging machine
>>42125343>I think she should know, and you should tell her. Whenever you feel comfortable, but someday you'll have to.She was pretty shy when we first met her, I think she still is behind her whole magical girl persona.
>>42125343>>She's more mature than you give her credit for. I'd tell her.
>>42125453Not really shy, more stage fright than anything, she did join in with us and Tia and others in the bedroom before we met her while she was invisible remember.
>>42125384>No, I'm pretty certain it was a 4 dot water manse that we were changing into a 3 dot solar manse.It was originally a 3 dot water demesne which we had the option of either turning to a 4 dot water manse or a 3 dot Solar manse, it was a huge vote that took up like a good portion of the thread.
>>42125486Yes, I meant demesne, not manse.
>>42125483Being invisible seems to be her natural state even before becoming exalted...You know the whole thing with being so normal you forget about her soon.That's nearly sidereal level stealth...
>>42125483That's what I mean by her MG persona though, she can be brave and outgoing as Radiant Starfall, but the second we called her Janet Deer she kinda fell apart.
>>42125536we should just call out for Janet and watch as she falls out of a tree above us all flustered and cute
"I think she should know, and you should tell her. Whenever you feel comfortable, but someday you'll have to." You tell him."I know." He nods. "But... I don't feel like I could do it right now. I'm... I need help.""...help? Help telling her?"He shakes his head, hangs it mumbling to himself, than straightens it. "Maka. I need to talk to you about something else.""That's why I'm here." Well, it's not entirely true, but now you want to know, and you want to help him."It doesn't have anything to do with Starfall, it's just about myself." He admits, standing up and heading inside the tent. "Will you listen to me? Just promise you'll keep it a secret. It's not something I want to be known, not right now.">Follow him in. Promise.>Follow him in, but be vague about promising.>Follow him in, but don't make promises.>Suggest that you could talk about it on the way to Pearl.>(other?)
>>42125581>>Follow him in. Promise.
>>42125581>Suggest that you could talk about it on the way to Pearl.
>>42125581>Follow him in. Promise.Whatever it is, it's probably it'll probably be easier to keep secret than the fucking Titan was.
>>42125581>Follow him in. Promise.
>>42125606"I'm the UCS."
>>42125581>Follow him in. Promise.Inb4 ¨I don't know how my wolf-physique works....¨Also loyalty side-quests are fun
>>42125619Trying too hard. Let's say he's actually an alchemical infiltrator.
>>42125621I still want more Tia Quest.I can't fucking wait for more Tia PoV EF, please have more Tia PoV in the future.
>>42125581>>Follow him in. Promise.I'm thinking either He's a big guy (for Radiant), or he has little to no experience with the sexings.
>>42125637Or Pyre spark. all our insane fanatics are awesome.
>>42125654>He's a big guy (for Radiant)She's been in the same room as us while we've been having fun with Tia, which means she's ridden Tia, so she can most definitely handle him.
>>42125637I request that this request is disregarded.
>>42125581So what's his type?Is it Maka? Is this all just some clever ruse to pin Maka down and have his way with her?
>>42125685He wouldn't need a clever ruse for that and he knows it.
>>42125684I request that you die in a fire, corpse engineering was fucking awesome fun.
>>42125685I think he does want to bone Maka. Everyone does, except Karas.he's just being shy and awkward.
>>42125698I request that you stop being rude.
>>42125696It's all foreplay and roleplay. Gotta set the mood
>>42125637Next time we are one step away from getting ourselves killed, obviously.
>>42125684>hating Tia Timepoint and laugh at this plebian of bathetic taste
>>42125714We just had that and then some in the invasion, yet didn't have any, we also had that with the Lintha, and didn't get any.
>>42125718The only POV break that I was okay with was Karas, and even that one was just sort of okay. There's nothing worse than going "fuck yeah, finally it's quest time!" then 15 seconds later "oh, nope, they're doing something else under the name of the same quest."
>>42124819Is it just me or are there a shitload of new demenses marked on that map?
>>42125753Man that's like you don't even like changing perspectives.
>>42125753Holy shit wow you're so assblasted about it hahahaha.Also its still Exalted Quest even with different perspectives anon, it isn't Maka Quest: Only Maka Allowed Edition.
>>42125737I expected Tia time when we were getting btfo during the invasion, but she weren't in the best shape herself back then. We did get Tia time with the Lintha though.
>>42125753thats some pretty shit taste you've got there, we've got rules against that round these partsalso> There's nothing worse than going....oh no not your first world problems, there can't possibly be ANYTHING worse then that ever, harden the fuck up cunt.
>>42125772Yes, it's exactly like that.>>42125777I'm not really mad, anon, just disappointed when it happens.
>>42125771Not super new, but we saw this map I think right before the actual fighting started. It's all the demesnes and manses that are on Tianna period as opposed to the ones we had just found after the wyld. These are already known and/or already capped by Tianna or the Lunars.
>>42125787>but she weren't in the best shape herself back then.She was doing better than we were, and I can totally see us deciding to split our skull open with a headbutt for Maka's sake while she's watching if anon was playing.
>>42125799>I'm not really mad, anon, just disappointed when it happens.>There's nothing worseNah dude you're butt blasted, go get some help about that.
>>42125737We had Tia Time during the Lintha arc.
>>42125813No this map includes the post-Wyld manses.
>>42125827Well i can't think of anything worse on the internet. The only similar thing is when an author I like takes a hiatus, which is... exactly the same thing to me.
>>42125837Yes?I didn't mean they weren't on there, just that the rest are ones that Tianna already knew about on the island.
>>42125799Okay, you don't like it, point taken. But at lest read through those threads to get storline updates.
>>42125845>Well i can't think of anything worse on the internetSeriously? That's just pathetic of you.
>>42125814Considering how anon played Maka that time we would've just gotten Tia killed there I'm afraid.
>>42125886Name something then.
>>42125910What, have no imagination? Never been to another board of 4chan?
>>42125581>Follow him in. Promise.good to see you EF
>>42125934I knew you couldn't think of anything, you're just shitposting. We can stop now for the sake of the thread I guess.
>>42125867>>42125813Actually, from what I'm reading, the Capped demenses have little building images on them, which means that all the ones without haven't been capped yet. All the ones on the mainland are probably claimed, but somehow I doubt the ones on the outlying islands are.For example, that three-dot in the northwest.
>>42125955No seriously, you cannot possibly think of something worse than things not going perfect in your quest? Have you never seen people kill themselves because of the internet being down effecting the stock market? Never browsed another website on the internet? Never seen how crazy and insane it can make people and the things they do? Because if so holy shit thats pathetically naive.I'm not going to spoonfeed you the entire fucking internet just because your head is so far in the sand you've penetrated the planets crust.
>>42125955What the hell. Just how deluded *are* you?
"I promise." You reply.You follow him inside the tent. It's rather bare, with just a wooden bowl, a small bronze plate full of slowly-burning dry herbs spreading a soothing, incense-like smell, and a few talismans hanging from the posts. A straw carpet is laid on the grass.He sits down, and waits for you to close the tent shut, your eyes take a moment to adjust to the near-total darkness. You sit down in front of him.Talon half-smiles at you. "I've never been much of a celibate man." He starts. "When I was a mortal, I was one of the best warriors of a very large tribe. I was..." He chuckles. "Don't take it as bragging." he interrupts himself as an aside. "But I was considered quite handsome.""I told you I'm not going to judge you." you reply, amused. "So you were one damn hunk of a man and probably got dozens of girls orbiting you, both for your station in the tribe and because they wanted you so bad. I can see that.""The... incident in which I Exalted made me dislike my human form. Intensely. I don't want to go down in details. I'll don it if i absolutely have to, but I won't like it." He takes a tired look at you. "My new tribe here in Tianna has many women. Several of them would do anything to get in my bed. But they can't satisfy me, and I'm genuinely afraid that I'd accidentally hurt them. I felt like I was walking on eggshells when I tried.""That sounds frustrating." You admit. "How long has it been?""Ten years? I think. More or less." He groans."That sounds TERRIBLE.""I'm just... I..."(cont.)
"You want to ask me if you can have sex with me." You cut to the chase, having heard enough to guess the situation. "You're asking me because I'm the one that is most like your type, and because you know I won't break no matter what you do to me. And you've been worried about asking because you're afraid I or others would think less of you for it, or maybe that I'd get strange ideas about you when all you want is really just some sex with no strings attached because you're a boy, your body has needs, and you've been neglecting them for a really long time." You conclude.He just stands there listening to your explanation, and then falls silent for a few seconds before nodding. "...That's pretty much it.">Jump on him, tackle him to the ground, rip his pants off.>You should have told me sooner. Right here right now, or do you have any specific requests? *wink*>I don't have a problem with this! Just, I need to take care of a few things. But let's agree on a day and a place, and I'll blow your mind.>I don't mind it, but I really want to see your human appearance now. Would you show it to me? (s+z)>I don't really feel like it right now, but we can talk about it another day.>Let's pretend nothing of this ever happened, okay? It just can't work. You should get over your weird hangups on your own.>I don't know how to say this, but you're really not my type, Talon. No harm meant.>Starfall might not be your type, but you're definitely her type. Why don't you try with her?>(other?)
>>42125994All of those things just don't affect me or my mood. People kill themselves and each other over shit all the time, it's tragic but I don't have any tears for it, if I did I'd have died of dehydration long ago.
>>42126003He's amazingly deluded.
>>42125983Yeah, remember Tianna is kinda poor, they probably didn't have the money to build manses for all the demesnes they knew about or they would have to help power their essence guns.
>>42126018>I don't have a problem with this! Just, I need to take care of a few things. But let's agree on a day and a place, and I'll blow your mind.
>>42126018>Jump on him, tackle him to the ground, rip his pants off.How cute of him.
>>42126018>Jump on him, tackle him to the ground, rip his pants off.
>>42126018>You should have told me sooner. Right here right now, or do you have any specific requests? *wink*
>>42126018>You should have told me sooner. Right here right now, or do you have any specific requests? *wink*I'm curious what kind of requests he might have.
>>42126018>You should have told me sooner. Right here right now, or do you have any specific requests? *wink*Also, prepare to use MRP and HSDD.Gentlemen, we're going in!
>>42126018>>Jump on him, tackle him to the ground, rip his pants off.I love helping our friends.
>>42126018>>Starfall might not be your type, but you're definitely her type. Why don't you try with her?
>>42126018>Starfall might not be your type, but you're definitely her type. Why don't you try with her?I'm not saying we shouldn't have sex with him or that he should force himself to fuck Starfall but experimenting and trying something outside your preferred type is pretty natural
>>42126018>>Jump on him, tackle him to the ground, rip his pants off.We really should be going to talk to the Abyssals but this is too funny to pass up.
>>42126018>>Jump on him, tackle him to the ground, rip his pants off.then afterwards>Starfall might not be your type, but you're definitely her type. Why don't you try with her?>>42126068nah, we don't need those, those are for Tia and Amata
>>42126018>I don't have a problem with this! Just, I need to take care of a few things. But let's agree on a day and a place, and I'll blow your mind.>Starfall might not be your type, but you're definitely her type. Why don't you try with her?
>>42126086Eh, we may as well let him know that detail, at least.
>>42126018>I don't have a problem with this! Just, I need to take care of a few things. But let's agree on a day and a place, and I'll blow your mind.We can do it after we've check in on Pearl and the Abyssals. Mainly the Abyssals, I don't want any wandering off before we can talk to them.
>>42126018>Jump on him, tackle him to the ground, rip his pants off.Once we're done then ask>Starfall might not be your type, but you're definitely her type. Why don't you try with her?Cause its clear he needs it right now, but he'll also need it in the future, and he loves her.
>>42126106We are dealing with ten years of frustration here, man. And Talon is a full battle monster and in his warm form.We should be asking to see his human form and soothe his traumas with it
>>42126018You don't even have to worry about the Warform stuff, Zaan gave us the talk and everything.
>>42126125>warm formwell, he IS fluffy.
>>42126018>>42126123This, and in that order, but mainly because Starfall couldn't take him with 10 years of buildup, we need to get them together and ease them into it, preferably with us in the middle to start with.
>>42126125>Talon is a full battle monsterI thought he was the social caste. I mean, he's not terrible in a fight - few exalted are. But Tia's the battle monster, not Zaan or Talon.
>>42126018>I don't mind it, but I really want to see your human appearance now. Would you show it to me? (s+z)THEN>Jump on him, tackle him to the ground, rip his pants off.
>>42126139our tits act as airbags and buffer, that it?
>>42126018>I don't have a problem with this! Just, I need to take care of a few things. But let's agree on a day and a place, and I'll blow your mind.>Starfall might not be your type, but you're definitely her type. Why don't you try with her?If anyone is an expert on sexual experimentation it's Maka. She's practically a sex technician
>>42126132Anon his warform is probably capable of killing us if things go bad, let's not do that and save the war form dickings for Tia.>>42126151Nope, he's the same caste as Tia.
>>42126068Not this time, this is for Talon, we should just let him take it out on Maka's body.
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>42126018>>You should have told me sooner. Right here right now, or do you have any specific requests? *wink*Prepare to pop our social combat charms too.
>>42126165>Nope, he's the same caste as Tia.No, I'm 90% certain he's a Changing Moon. He just happens to also be big and buff.
>>42126156Nah, we're just a lot stronger.
>>42126018>Jump on him, tackle him to the ground, rip his pants off.then afterwards>Starfall might not be your type, but you're definitely her type. Why don't you try with her?he needs some, we want some, but we also want to get him and Starcute together
>>42126165He's always in his Warform, that's what the big brick wolf mode is, also not according to the character sheet, but I don't remember where that was said honestly.
>>42126167how about AIRS and/or FBS just so we aren't hurt? as a precaution..
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>42126152>>42126018Forgot something
>>42126151He seems like a warrior-chief unlike Tia who is just pure warrior who's learning how to be a chief.Still a warrior though.
>>42126018>You should have told me sooner. Right here right now, or do you have any specific requests? *wink*And:>Starfall might not be your type, but you're definitely her type. Why don't you try with her?I do think we should suggest the idea to him. Not push him to it, but float it. And maybe suggest a threesome
>>42126225This already is a threesome. You haven't noticed it yet.
>>42126165Dude we have some of the highest soak charms in all our group of Exalted. We can fuck his warform
>>42126225I reckon we should suggest it to him too, but afterwards when we're lying there next to him and just call out>"Hey Janet, how was that? Come join in."
>>42126237that would be fun!!
>>42126223Well, yeah, most exalts are warriors. That doesn't mean he's a Full Moon. He's in the social caste - the Changing Moons.To expect him to be physically powerful on the scale of Tia is silly, even if he's physically powerful by most other measures.
>>42126018>>Jump on him, tackle him to the ground, rip his pants off.
>>42126237That's the best part. Starfall a cute.

>>42126279theres also 29 unique IP's
>>42126291Unlikely, her legs were broken in that final climactic fight in the Titan and Mikahil is still recuperating from his own leg shattering.Although if she was ambulatory do you really believe she'd limit herself to just spying? She'd be a participant.
>>42126279>>Vote about making another secret promise when the last one caused all sorts of problemsWhat? The last one went pretty smoothly
>>42126307She has enough acrobatics to walk on her hands.
>>42126291No anon, she's already riding the wolf.
>>42126291I hope she does. We should call her.
>>42126291>I think he's more weirded out because he see her as a younger sister.It's one of the reasons I don't want to push it right now, not all Solar/Lunar Mates are about romantic love, if Talon only feels familial love towards Radiant then that's fine.
>>42126279Hey man, I wasn't there for the start, I had my hands full so I couldn't post. Cut me some slack.It's not like I have sex in my mind all the time.Only most of the time.
>>42126307She's a lot more resilient than Mika is.
>>42126318With her hands if we take charms into account
>>42126307Well, it depends. If she really has a crush on the guy, she might take badly that he doesn't want to fuck her. She really needs to stop fucking with people when they aren't aware she's participating, though. Maka doesn't mind, but that's a pretty terrible thing to do.
>>42126338Do we know that for sure? We don't know if she has body mending meditation and that stamina charm.Without those two she's exactly as resilient as Mikahil when it comes to getting her legs broken in combat.
>>42126315>What? The last one went pretty smoothlyI'm talking about the Titan which nearly fucked up our relationship with Tia and also caused some friction with Samiel I think, which promise are you talking about?
>>42126307She should be fine, Amata sent her out to look for the Day caste when he disappeared so she's well enough to do that.
"You're surprisingly cute." You giggle."Huh?" He mumbles, looking at you confusedly.That's when you pounce on him and knock him to the ground by surprise.You're a lot stronger than you look, and you've wrestled semi-seriously with Tia, but Talon is still three times your weight (and four times Tia's) and made of basically pure muscle. It takes you a moment to fully topple him, and he makes a powerful, deep, satisfying slam when he hits the ground."What the heck-""Shh." You playfully lift your finger at him. "Don't worry, I'm an expert." You expertly rid him of what little clothing he has in one fell swoop."Here?! Now?! Are you even more horny than I am?!" He hisses angrily."I'm always horny." You reply."N- no, wait, don't-" He suddenly realizes what's about to happen and tries to scuttle away, but you pin him down, He could struggle free, but as his eyes lock into yours, he realizes your elaborate plan: if he struggles too much, the tent will collapse and everyone will catch the two of you in the act. Not just his tribesmen: his camp is fully visible from the city walls.You can read his train of thought in his expressions:Even Maka wouldn't just keep at it if the tent comes off and we end up in plain sight.No, you grin, I'd totally do that. I might even flare my Anima to draw even more attention. You don't have a choice, so just stay put.He groans and half-heartedly tries to peel you off himself. "...I'm, I'm not ready yet...""Like hell you aren't." You demonstrate with a decisive grope that makes him whimper. "I've never seen anyone THIS ready, and I've seen Tia." You lean closer, grab the corner of his ear, and whisper in it: "Do it."Once said that, there really isn't anywhere else to go, is there.(cont.)
>>42126372>which nearly fucked up our relationship with TiaTia was like "I totally trust you." and wasn't phased by it.
>>42126332I wouldn't say putting the idea out there is pushing it. Peoples tastes change and all that. We're not forcing him to bone Starfall, just putting it out there that as a sex expert it couldn't hurt to try
>>42126372>>42126391Yeah, he 's confusing "I'm upset because you didn't tell me this secret" with "Horrible horrible past life memories are coming back now that I've found out about this and they're making me really uncomfortable."
>>42126384>No, you grin, I'd totally do that.We really are terrible in a wonderful sort of way.
>>42126384I so love helping our friends.Actually I'm kinda surprised he never asked Tia for a round now that I think about it.
>>42126434He doesn't seem to be attracted to Radiant and Tia seems like she has a similar bodytype to her.I think Talon is a fan of really tall really statuesque women.
>>42126384By the way, this is Maka's long lost sister.
>>42126434Tia was kinda obsessed with us even before she met us. As a matter of fact she was even more obsessed with us before she met us and we were like "Girl you need to take the crazy down a notch."
>>42126477Too white, way too white
>>42126372Personally, I was thinking of the near-blind oath with the Ocean Father, which hasn't bitten us... yet.
>>42126492It's another sidereal trick.
>>42126502Oh right, that's a thing. I keep forgetting about that one because we've been focusing on so many other things.
>>42126485I still love how we said she needs to properly romance us, so on our first date we sank an island with sex.
>>42126492It's either that or she can be one reincarnation. The personality is very similar, altough Maka leans more towards good than neutral.
>>42126502We can always request his presence to ask if it's okay to bring in new people under the Eclipse Oath to help search.
>>42126528Well, given the starting point I'd say we did okay. And it's not like she didn't continue to improve.
>>42126528That must have been one exasperated Island God reporting to their local Terrestrial Court.
>>42126573Why do you think karatechop is so eternally pissed at us?
>>42126573>THE SOLARS ARE BACK AND STILL CRAZY>What happened?>They fucked my island to death
>>42126573>FUCKING SOLARS! FUCKING LUNARS!>Yes, you just got done explaining that.
>>42126573Now I want to see that badly.Wheres that sidereal buddycop writefag?
This was a learning experience for you, too. Talon is very big, in many different ways, and you've had your share of fun with him just as much as he had with you.And yes, he really needed some stress relief, you'll admit. It's quite a miracle of careful acrobatics that you both managed not to collapse the tent. You're still 100% sure that everyone in the camp knows what happened, but hey, it will probably improve his standing with them. They don't know what happened, and seeing your boss drag a supernaturally beautiful Exalted in his tent and fuck her senseless is something to respect.Well, you're not quite senseless, but between him and Tia earlier you'd say you're feeling quite sexually satisfied.You roll around on the mass of garbled straw that used to be a mat and nuzzle up to Talon, who is lying on his back, nearly passed-out, breathing heavily."I'll try my best to be there for you when you'll need to do this again." You grin. "It was fun, and you're quite good at it, if a bit rusty. But..."He rolls his head to face you, tiredly."...I've heard Starfall talking. She might not be your type, but you're definitely her type.""...I suspected that." He replies. "But... It'd feel weird to me... to do... well, things like these. With her.""So you have a thing for women taller and curvier than her." You gently caress his fluffy tail. "Nothing wrong about that, but you could try something out of your comfort zone. Just think about it." You look up to his eyes. "I'm saying this because I think it could turn out better for both of you."He rolls his head back looking up to the top of the tent. "...I'll think about it, alright.">Are you spent now, or do you have another round or ten in you?>I need a lift to the Dark Omen, anyway. Will you help me get there?>(Other?)
>>42126597The phrasing there needs to be a bit more specific, since we didn't actually fuck the island itself.This is necessary, because of the one time that a Solar fucked a mountain.
>>42126616>I need a lift to the Dark Omen, anyway. Will you help me get there?
>>42126573Not really. I bet people are praying him or her to have awesome sex, now
>>42126616>(Other?)"Janet, your thoughts?"
>>42126616>>I need a lift to the Dark Omen, anyway. Do you still have in you to give me a ride there?
>>42126616>>I need a lift to the Dark Omen, anyway. Will you help me get there?
>>42126616>I need a lift to the Dark Omen, anyway. Will you help me get there?Ok, got "Help Talos work through some issues" off the checklist. Time to move onto the next item on the agenda.
>>42126616>>I need a lift to the Dark Omen, anyway. Will you help me get there?Maka is officially on booty call.
>>42126629>one timeI'm pretty sure it was a more regular thing. He made an artifact for it, would he really stop after using it once?
>>42126665I thought the mountain erupted after he used it the first time.
>>42126665Well the mountain turned into a volcano which killed him.So yes he stopped after using it once.
>>42126616>I need a lift to the Dark Omen, anyway. Will you help me get there?Right down to business.
>>42126687>First age solar>getting killed by a measly volcano
>>42126665Didn't the mountain turns into a volcano and anihilated the guy?
>>42126687Totally worth it.
>>42126616>I need a lift to the Dark Omen, anyway. Will you help me get there?>You gently caress his fluffy tail.FLUFFY TAIL ACCQUIRED
>>42126689Hey, now that the pleasantries are out of the way, quite literally...
I wonder if that cute ghost survived. I liked her.
>>42126641>"Janet, your thoughts?"Seconded. This HAS to be worth a shot.
>>42126616Talon is so fluffy
>>42126692It was probably some pussy Twilight who didn't feel the need to invest in Resistance charms.
>>42126616>Are you spent now, or do you have another round or ten in you?Another round or ten? Nice. If this option is her, there must be a reason for it. Starfall is around, isn't she?
>>42126696We need to offhandedly mention to Tia how awesome fluffy tails are, next time we see her she'll have one (at minimum, more likely 3)
>>42126715I think it was an Eclipse caste, but to be fair he got caught his pants down.
>>42126656Those damn Thalmor were sexually supressing the almighty Talos!
>>42126759Honestly I have been playing way too much Rising Thunder.
>>42126616>Talon is very big, in many different waysUfufu
>>42126759>Orgasm denial, god-level
>>42126758>I think it was an Eclipse casteSo it was.
>>42126805>hey Maka what are you writing?>my autobiography
"So, Talon... I'll be honest. I didn't come and see you just because I suspected you had something to say, or because i wanted to have sex with you. Although those were both perfectly valid reasons as well.""I imagined as much." He grins, showing his mouth filled with pointy teeth."I need a lift to the Dark Omen, anyway. Will you help me get there?""...Dark Omen? Oh, yeah, the Abyssals." He nods, and, with great effort, stands back up. "Alright, just let me grab my pants. But why didn't you ask Tia? She's always with you.""She's resting." You wink. "I might have gone a bit too far with her earlier."He seems genuinely impressed. "...Just how unstoppable are you?""We could do another round or ten, if you feel like it." You shrug. "Or a hundred?"He seems to grow pale from shock for a moment, then mumbles something to the effect of "I'll keep that in mind."Say..." You mumble playfully, peeking out of the flap at the numerous barbarian warriors all around the tent, who are intently staring at it. "What do you think your men imagine just happened?"He freezes mid-dressing. "...How loud have you been?" He suddenly wonders, clearly trying to remember."Quite a bit, though not as much as you." You reply.He groans, finished putting on his trousers, and then just sits and facepalms."I'm sure that they're all very impressed that you scored THIS hard." You wink wink nudge nudge at him. "Maybe I should walk out of this tent naked and covered in hot-""NO!""-sweat?""Still no." He doesn't look too amused."You worry too much." You reply.(cont.)
>>42126846I feel the need to restate what I said earlier, we really are terrible in a wonderful sort of way
When you open the tent flap and walk out, everyone pretends that they were busy doing something, and totally not trying to peek or overhear.Talon glares around a bit, then offers to pick you up."...Aren't you going to turn in a bird or something that flies?" You wonder, as he hoists you up in a princess carry."That's boring." He replies, as you see his caste mark glow.Then, he just leaps up.It's a monumental jump, one that quickly leaves the camp behind and covers, in a wide, lazy arc, almost a hundred meters. The moment his feet touch the ground, he keeps the momentum leaping again, from hilltop to hilltop, from tree to tree, and across open plains, bounce after bounce."Well, this is new." You admit, genuinely impressed. >While on the way, I wanted to talk to you about something. (what?)>(skip to arrival)
>>42126944>>(skip to arrival)
>>42126944>>(skip to arrival)Neat.
>>42126944>(skip to arrival)Honestly I think we've done most of the talking that we ne-Oh, wait!>While on the way, I wanted to talk to you about something. (what?)Tell him about the training camp if he doesn't know already and ask him if he wants to come with!
>>42126846>"We could do another round or ten, if you feel like it." You shrug. "Or a hundred?"low temperance solars are terrifying.
>>42126944>(skip to arrival)>>42126973I think he was at the meeting when we told everyone.
>>42126944>>>While on the way, I wanted to talk to you about something. (what?)Summer Caaaaaaamp
>>42126973He was there at the meeting when we told everyone.
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>42126944>ask him about his human form; it's ok to show it to you.Yeah, he doesn't like it, but Maka can help him deal with it.Also, I propose we change outfits to #13. We've used #10 for too long now.
>>42126944>>(skip to arrival)In this case, literally skipping.
>>42126944Fast Travel charms are cool
>>42126983>>42126996>>42126997Well then we could ask him if he wants to go.
>>42126944>(skip to arrival)>>42127006>Also, I propose we change outfits to #13. We've used #10 for too long now.I agree about changing outfits, but I propose we change to #4 instead. Not a big fan of #13.
>>42127006I'd prefer #12We should try to look at least moderately appropriate for the meeting.
>>42127026Yeah, we should figure out who's coming with us and who sin't.
>>42126944>While on the way, I wanted to talk to you about something. (what?)We wanted to scout for some other Lunars from the Silver pact who could help us with taking over Skullstone
>>42126977I know. Isn't it beautiful?
>>42127006I''d rather do #9 or #15, not a huge fan of 13
Thought I'd share this, in case anyone missed it on the ask. http://imgur.com/a/esQ87
>>42126944>>While on the way, I wanted to talk to you about something. (what?)Ask if he's thought about summer camp>>42127041I agree, chamge to #4
>>42127041Hmm, yes #4 works. Preferably with teasing talon with it too.>>42127044312 is too Combat ready. Don't want that impression while the mood is still bad.
>>42127071>Preferably with teasing talon with it too.Nah, we've done enough with Talon for now. I was just think dark colors for meeting with abyssals while still being a very Maka-esque outfit
>>42127044I'd suggest to go full regal on them with #17
We never use 21, 22, 19, 17, 14...
I vote number 21!!
>>42127126We've used #17 twice already.And I really want to use #7, but will go with #4 for now.
I kinda like #4. Black seems appropriate for this.
>>42127126Didn't we 14 when we went to confront the Silver Prince.
>>42127144I only remember using 17 once when we first got back to Pearl, when was the other time?
Sure. Chalk up a vote for #4.
>>42126616Can we just beat him within an inch of his life? That should give him something else to think about.

>>42126884At this point we're less a Solar and more the Primordial of Rampant Sexuality. I doubt even Venus gets laid as often as Maka does.
>>42127068Thank you, kind anon.
"So..." After a while, you get used to this manner of moving, even if the ground getting suddenly closer is scary at first, compared to just flying. "Will you be coming to the summer camp?""I haven't decided yet." He admits. "I hope it's not just a waste of time.""I don't think it will be. Nysela is a very serious goddess, and she's determined to train us so we can better face the dangers against Creation." An errant thought strikes your mind. "Speaking of which, do you think you can introduce me to any other western Lunars?""What for?" He replies, maybe a bit defensive."Well, to meet them, first of all. Get to know people. Maybe win allies against Skullstone, or the Realm, or the Lintha. There's a lot we could gain."He nods, after some thought. "I'll tell you when i get word of the next moot, but I think it would be better for you to ask Lynne. He's a lot more in touch with them than I am.""Good call." Finally, you see the wreck of the massive airship in the distance, as well as Pearl. The damage is extensive, and the coastline is filled with craters, but it looks like Golden Reach is still mostly intact. "You can let me go here, I'll handle things."He lands not too far from the wreck, in open countryside, where the grass has begun to die from the proximity to... probably all that soulsteel. "Alright. Best of luck.""Thank you. If Tia gets restless tell her I'm either here or in Pearl." You wink to him."Will keep that in mind." He waves goodbye at you before jumping back.>Head to the Dark Omen's wreck first. It's what you came for, after all.>Actually, you could check Pearl first. It's not too far.>Go and pay a visit to Yaraon, while you're here.>(Other?)
>>42127126I don't believe we ever used 12
>>42127232Sure, I figured I was missing some. Some of the links were dead or the archive stopped showing images.
>>42127264>Actually, you could check Pearl first. It's not too far.How's the city god? Shining Jewel?

>>42127264>>>Head to the Dark Omen's wreck first. It's what you came for, after all.Aw man, we didn't bring them that incision I wanted to give them.
>>42127264>Head to the Dark Omen's wreck first. It's what you came for, after all.
>>42127264>Actually, you could check Pearl first. It's not too far.
>>42127068> naked Radiant huffing pantiesMy new favorite image.
>>42127264>Head to the Dark Omen's wreck first. It's what you came for, after all.Also, it saddens me that our Magical Girl outfit change has, much likenour super hotness, become mindane enough that our circle no longer reacts to it. We need to meet new people to impress with our shenanigans.
>>42127387We'll be going to the Neck soon enough.
Man, that picture of Amata never gets old
You focus your will for a moment and change your outfit before heading to the Dark Omen.The airship, once a small fortress of floating steel and bone, has been completely wrecked by the enemy's essence artillery strikes. The side that faces the sea is entirely cratered and shattered, letting you actually peek into its structure.A host of undead mill about the ship, many in arms and patrolling or standing guard, many more moving around materiel in hasty work gangs. Many of them seem fairly fresh and raised in a rush, rather than the usual high-quality skeletons you've seen from them.As you approach the ship, you see Baron step out of the undead crowd as it parts and notice you. "Maka.""Baron."A moment of clumsy silence ensues."So... to what do we owe this visit." He asks.>I wanted to ask you if you'll help us against Skullstone.>What will you do now?>Is Fleurdelis here?>How are things going in the world of the dead?>(Other?)
>>42127264>>Head to the Dark Omen's wreck first. It's what you came for, after all.Can we use Touch of Gentle Repose on the Tyrant's destroyed forces, even after all this time?
>>42127499>>What will you do now?then>I wanted to ask you if you'll help us against Skullstone.
>>42127499>How are things going in the world of the dead?
>>42127499>I wanted to ask you if you'll help us against Skullstone.This thread could use a little bit more "Get to the point".
>>42127499>>What will you do now?>>Is Fleurdelis here?
>>42127499>I want you to stay with us.
>>42127499>Is Fleurdelis here?>How are things going in the world of the dead?I just want to make sure she made it back and then ask how they're doing in general.
>>42127499>>I wanted to ask you if you'll help us against Skullstone.
>>42127499>What will you do now?
>>42127499>>How are things going in the world of the dead?I don't want to immediately ask what they're going to do like were kicking them out when we obviously aren't, but we also don't know how they even feel about staying in Tianna after all that has happened or how they feel about us after the Tyrant.
>>42127499>How are things going in the world of the dead?>I needed to talk to you all. Could you gather everyone, please?>Is Fleurdelis here?>>42127533There is multiple points that need to be addressed. We need to know what they will do, try to help them if they want something else than their current state, etc.Just asking if they're going to help with Skullstone is both pretty callous and make us look like a sef-interested jerk
>>42127630>try to help them if they want something else than their current stateUnless that something else is "death to creation, all hail the Neverborn."We probably shouldn't help with that.
>>42127499>Is Fleurdelis here?>How are things going in the world of the dead?
>>42127533Baron is probably the least likely among Abyssals to be in charge of decision making, so getting to the point with him might not be the most efficient way of talking.
>>42127630>Just asking if they're going to help with Skullstone is both pretty callous and make us look like a sef-interested jerkYeah I'm against just straight up asking before we find out what they even want to do first.
"So... how are things going in the world of the dead?" You try and strike up a conversation."No idea." Baron shrugs. "Doc managed to open a small portal to the Underworld and we scouted a bit, and it seems that while all this mess was going on here in Creation almost nothing happened in the Underworld."It suddenly strikes you that you know almost nothing about how Tianna is on the Underworld side."Well, with you around sending people's souls straight to Lethe, I'd imagine very few ghosts got formed, so yeah." He admits. "The real problem is what's going to happen to the power vacuum the Bodhisattva left here in the West. ...And the Tyrant, I guess." He seems distraught for a moment. "With two Deathlords suddenly gone, I think things might get rowdy, but on the other side, there aren't any Deathlord forces geographically near enough to try anything big and sudden.""...You must miss her."He looks away from you and at the wrecked airship. "Many Abyssals I've known are hostages of their Deathlord in some way or another. The Tyrant, on the other hand, wanted us to respect her, but won our respect in exchange. Now that she's no longer around... We'll miss her, yeah, which is weird, but we were thinking about our own plans.""Which are?" He turns back to you. "All five of us have decided to stick together. We will move to the Underworld side of Tianna for now. Rebuild something of a power base there. We'll need a bit of assistance at first, but I think we can be of some help to each other." He gestures at you. "I don't think there's any reason for us to be hostile at each other.">What kind of help do you need?>I'd gladly accept you as allies.>We were at each other's throats not too long ago. I need time to trust you.>How is Tianna on the other side? I don't know anything about it.>What's your opinion on Skullstone now?>(Other?)
>>42127892>What kind of help do you need?>I'd gladly accept you as allies.
>>42127892>>What kind of help do you need?
>>42127892>What kind of help do you need?>How is Tianna on the other side? I don't know anything about it.
>>42127892>What kind of help do you need?>I'd gladly accept you as allies.Ask about the other deathlords. We know virtually nothing about them.
>>42127892>>What kind of help do you need?>How is Tianna on the other side? I don't know anything about it.
>>42127892>The Tyrant, on the other hand, wanted us to respect her, but won our respect in exchangeThis phrasing sounds a bit weird. She wanted X, but got X?>How is Tianna on the other side? I don't know anything about it.>What's your opinion on Skullstone now?
>>42127892>I'd gladly accept>How is Tianna on the other side? I don't know anything about it.>What kind of help do you need?
>>42127892>I'd gladly accept you as allies.>What kind of help do you need?First things first, but other options are important as well.
>>42127892>What kind of help do you need?>I'd gladly accept you as allies.Tianna can't look good on the other side, it's built on top of a doomsday machine
>>42127892Don't forget to mention that Val wanted a look at the Dark Omen, she's super overworked, but if it's for her favorite shipbuilding she'll probably find time to help out if she can.
>>42127975I'm not sure "sending everyone immediately into Lethe" is good for our reputation down there either. We're basically killing Underworld Tianna's "birth rate", as it were.
>>42127948"wanted us to respect her, and respected us in exchange".Sorry, I rewrote that sentence a couple time and made a mess.
>>42127892>>What kind of help do you need?>>I'd gladly accept you as allies.>>How is Tianna on the other side? I don't know anything about it.>Could you tell me where Fleudelis is, please? I'd like to talk to her in person.
"What kind of help do you need?" You wonder."We were thinking about... two of the captured ships and one warstrider, in working condition. And all the captured soulsteel.""...That's not a small request.""It's nothing you can't do without. We're not asking for money or manpower or souls or blood. But sooner or later someone from the Underworld will come here because of what just happened. It's in your best interest for us to have a decent enough force on the other side, right?" He explains.>Alright, you'll have it.>I can't promise that.>I'll have to ask Amata and the others first.>(Other?)
>>42128105>I can't promise that.>I'll have to ask Amata and the others first.>But I am sure we can work out a deal. As you said, we have mutual interests. And I would really like to have you guys as allies anyways.
>>42128105>I'll have to ask Amata and the others first.>(Other?)I'll try to get you what you need, don't worry.Didn't we need a few of the warstriders ourselves, to go attack Silver Prince's kingdom or whatever that was?
>>42128105>I'll have to ask Amata and the others first.But we can guarantee the soul-steel at least
>>42128105>I'll have to ask Amata and the others first.We can give them the Soulsteel no problem and I don't mind giving them the ships and the Warstrider, but we did have plans to use them in our peaceful takeover of the Neck, but in exchange they need to let Val have a look at either the Dark Omen or it's schematics.
>>42128105>Alright, you'll have it.This also seems to be a logical point to ask:>How is Tianna on the other side? I don't know anything about it.
>>42128105>I'll have to ask Amata and the others first.Would like to ask about the deathlords.
>>42128105>I can't promise that.
>>42128105>>I'll have to ask Amata and the others first.
>>42128105>>Alright, you'll have it.The Soulsteel is easy enough and I'm not entirely against the ships and the robot, but I'll second asking for blueprints to the airship.
>>42128147If we take Abyssals along to take over Skullstone it won't matter who mans the ships and warstriders.
>>42128207But do they (our allied Abyssals) know about our plans to attack Skullstone?
>>42128105>>42128170>in exchange they need to let Val have a look at either the Dark Omen or it's schematics.That might get them to agree to the trade, intact ships for a guide to making First Age airships.
>>42128225We're going to get to that point.
>>42128105>Alright, you'll have it.
>>42128225We're about to get to it.
>>42128256Let's say we will give them the warstriders if one or a couple of them come with us to skullstone?
"I'll have to ask Amata and the others first." You explain."Fair enough." He nods."You ARE asking a lot, though. How about you sweeten the deal a bit?""Oh?" You have his attention."You're not going to fly the Dark Omen anymore, and Valeriana wants to look into airship design. Do you still have the blueprints?"He scratches his chin. "...Alright. If you'd make the deal in exchange for the ship's wreck and our blueprints, we'd be up for it."[SESSION END]
Base: 2 XPDoing Subquests: +1 XP
>>42128284...we also need them to swear an Oath that, while they'll get the Soulsteel we capture? They'll not make a single ounce of it themselves. It's sad, but acceptable, to put already existing Soulsteel to a better use. But to make more of it? Absolutely not.
>>42128284>[SESSION END]It's over!That was a fast thread today, thanks as always EF.
>>42128298We should visit Pearl and Shining Jewel while we're at it. Maybe Yaraon too, because he's a friend and ally.

>>42128298With this we can up either our Twilight ot Night to 3 if we want.I vote for Twilight 3
>>42128350Definitely, it's right there and I want to see if Shining Jewel is okay after the battle. Also to see if hes grown up any now that Golden Reach is finished.
>>42128350Also to pick up our Sweet Ride.>>42128298Voting to save our XP
>>42128298Save our EXP, please.
Voting to keep the XPs
I wonder how bad Nysela will be as a drill sergeant. Shit's gonna be tough, I bet.Better practice that war face.
>>42128405I believe we literally can't spend them. Skills are New Level x3, and Attributes are x5, right? That means that our current pricings are:>Zenith Charm - 8 xp>Twlight/Night 3 - 9 xp>Non-Zenith Charm - 10 xp>Eclipse 4 - 12 xp>Dawn 5 - 15 xp>Mental 4 - 20 xp>Physical 5 - 25 xpSo, at the moment, unless we have 8+ xp, we literally can't spend it.
You thought your little sister was going to be the sidereal? Too bad!
>>42128502Por que no los dos?
>>42128499It's current score not new score. so Twilight and Night 3 are 6 XP, Mental 4 is 15 XP, and Physical 5 is 20XP
>>42128470Nice!>>42128502Cute!XP or did you ask for something?
>>42128470Personally, I'm looking forward to her saying "I like you, you can come over to my house and fuck my boss." more than showing her a war face.
>>42128499>>42128527Can we get a confirmation on which of these this is?
>>42124547>>42128562>Attributes cost [current score x5] xp. Abilities cost [current score x3] xp, except Zenith costing [(current score x3) -1]. Charms cost 10 xp, except for Zenith-based charms (related to charisma and physical/mental fortitude) which cost 8 xp. At the end of every "session" (thread) you will be presented with a list of possible acquisitions.Literally in the OP
And finally, a modest Maka wearing some heavy clothing, while still looking cool and keeping a JoJo reference.
>>42128556More likely to say that Maka can team up with her.
>>42128600>dat underboobUltra nice.We don't have enough arms to ORAORA, I wonder if there's a charm for that. Or maybe we can get a second set of arms as an artifact to help us punch more, just like UCS.
>>42128600>a modest MakaModest FOR Maka maybe. She's still showing far more than she's covering.
>>42128600>Maka getting ready for her trip to the North.
>>42128600>massive underboob>dat ponytailWe should do more things with Maka's hair. It's so long and nice.
>>42128663That's more like this.
>>42128655Are you kidding? She's totally covering more than sowing, you can't see her back at all with that coat.
>>42128652We just need to punch fast enough and we can ORAORA all we want.I'm sure we can get a charm under Dawn that'll make it happen.
>>42128678We should totally start playing with Maka's hair more.
>>42128705>>42128678Maybe we could get a charm to change/manipulate the hair, like our wardrobe one?
>>42128470>>42128502>>42128600That's neat, is that all for XP?
>>42128726We don't need to go that far, just you know, actually start saying we want to put our hair in a bun or a ponytail or in twintails.
>>42128663Having grown up in the South, I imagine Maka dressing covered head to toe while in the North. She'd hate every second of it and complain about wanting to get somewhere warm so she could strip.
>>42128758Nah, she has charms to endure the elements now.
>>42128758Nah Maka has charms for that shit, she can survive in the hot desert and in freezing plains without trouble.
>>42128726...or we could just fuck with our hair. We don't need to invent an entire charm for something so mundane.But if you really wanted to go down that route, it would probably be a charm which has both our wardrobe charm and Phantom Conjuring as prerequisites, which let us freely sculpt our haircut, makeup, and even produce clothing out of Essence instead of conjuring them from Elsewhere.You know, just roll the entire field of cosmetic charms into Phantom Conjuring Performance's anima control.
>>42128678http://imgur.com/a/cwIqRI'm all for playing with our hair moreAlso for whoever did the gallery, you missed these two.
>>42128758She certainly would have when she was a mortal. She's even complained about Tianna being chilly, and it's in a subtropical climate.Remember, Gem is so far south that it's hazardous to your health to have any amount of skin exposed to sunlight during the day.But now that Maka can walk naked across the bottom of the ocean, swim in a volcano, and so forth? The North would likely, at worst, give her goosebumps and unusually firm nipples.
>>42128797>that ahegaoIs Tia having a good dream?
>>42128763>>42128776Yeah but I find the image cute/funny.Grumpy Maka huddled in a corner, complaing about the cold, asking why she's still freezing when she has charms to deal with this kind of thing.
>>42128779>Phantom Conjuring PerformanceSpeaking of, that's still on our list of things to get.
>>42128837Yeah, it'd be bloody great for Maka. It would let her do things like create a hundred-foot, super-loud hologram of herself. Or, you know, conjure insubstantial things out of thin air. It's what Radiant Starfall uses for her transformation sequences and light shows.
>>42124547The Dropbox link doesn't work anymore, by the way.
>>42128855We can also float little tiny hearts around us when we have sex and flash Tia heart eyes when we tell her we love her.
>>42128877Basically, we can go full animu with minor effects enhancing our every action.
>>42128868Use this one https://www.dropbox.com/s/yxjjb8e50xs52fq/Exalted%20Quest%20-%20Threads%2001-86%20%5Bpdf%5D.rar?dl=0It goes only up to thread 86, though, so it's a bit outdated.
>>42124819The northeastern island should be named something to do with the imperial mountain, since that thing is supposed to be visible from every corner of creation and it should be in that direction from most of Tianna.Thought the word imperial mountain obviously shouldn't be used. It's the pole of Earth. Earthward Island? Or what was the thing called back in the first age again?
>>42128898Thanks anon, I appreciate it.
>>42128885I want it so we can have fun when we fight, bring up little heart shaped shields whenever we block something, have flashy golden lights when we land a hit, stuff like that.
>>42128921I want it so we can have glowing hearts explode out of our pussy every time someone thrusts into it, like falling sparks.But your reason is good too.
>>42128944>>42128921I vote for Phantom Conjuring Performance too. It's the charm I always got when I played a Solar with performance, it's pretty iconic to me. I also think that no matter what we're doing, we can always have a lot of fun with it here in the quest threads.
>>42128921>>42128978To be clear, this isn't me voting for it now, I'm just mentioning that I want it later when we've bought our more urgent charms.
>>42128987Nothing is exactly critical right now. We're covered in every area that we're going to be anytime soon.
>>42129031Not crucial, but we are entering our kingdom building arc, we need to be picking up Eclipse charms and dots, especially since Mik is letting us focus on getting the Neck while he focuses elsewhere.
>>42129065Mik will probably tag along for the Neck Expedition but I definitely agree that we'll need a few Eclipse charms to help us with politics and statesmanship.Shining Rulers Benevolence and Judges ear should be the minimum two we go for for the 3d adder and the ability to detect lies but I think we should also pick up Sagacious Reading of intent so we can figure out people's secret plans from their written words.
>>42129065Yeah, but there is *always* going to be something like that. We either get a neat, for-fun charm like PCP now or we don't get it at all. There won't ever be a better moment for it.
>>42129114>>42129109>>42129065No, guys. We don't need a performance charm now when we're about to go and seduce a large kingdom. We should get it when we attack Skullstone, it'll be much more useful then.
>>42126004>"That sounds TERRIBLE."I can imagine the horror in Maka's voice when she heard this, no sex for ten years must be impossible for her to imagine.
Do you honestly think we'd need an extra edge to seduce the tribal chiefs in the Neck?We're superhumanly beautiful and we have two charms that boost the social effect of our seduction.On top of that we've got the stage presence of a superstar and a pile of defeated Skullstone loot to show off.We don't need animu visual aids to make an impression.
>>42129204...who the fuck said we'd need Phantom Conjuring Performance for that? We want it because it's a good general-purpose utility, not because we think it's specifically necessary for the next major goal on our checklist.
>>42129204>needWe want it because it's cool.
>>42129204Well, what >>42129230 said. Phantom conjuring performance is awesome. It would also be useful pretty much everywhere where we're trying to be impressive and not hiding our solar nature... which makes just about 100% of the entire quest up until now. Also, think of it this way. Some charms are good in a 4chan quest context, while others aren't. This one would definitely be one of the best ones if you ask me. Anons and Exaltedfag would have a huge new avenue for creativity.
>>42129230>>42129320See >>42129151I missed my post linking to whom I was responding.And we'll have to agree to disagree on PCP's utility or coolness. We've already got one Magical Girl and any of the more subtle applications of PCP don't jibe with how utterly unsubtle we've played Maka as.Plus I just plain don't like the idea of having quirky effects happening when we do stuff, I've always been a fan of more grounded action since it makes it more engaging for me.
>>42129363There's nothing subtle about PCP. People always know it's an illusion. All you can do with it is be impressive and flashy.>Plus I just plain don't like the idea of having quirky effects happening when we do stuff, I've always been a fan of more grounded action since it makes it more engaging for me.Well if you forgot that all of the exalted are literal floodlights of burning colors whenever anything interesting happens anyway, then you won't mind it now.
>>42129363>grounded action>ExaltedDid you miss the ninja wall to wall fight Five Tails had against the Midnight in the Titan?Or when we uppercutted a guy so hard he never came down?
>>42129403>Well if you forgot that all of the exalted are literal floodlights of burning colors whenever anything interesting happens anyway, then you won't mind it now.Pretty much this, if you can forget that everytime it's go time everyone is glowing Gold/Silver then it won't be a problem later.
>>42129420>>42129403I realize my saying grounded action kinda seems silly so i'll rephrase it.I dislike having inane visual effects on top of the fantastical visual effects.
>>42129463>I dislike having inane visual effects on top of the fantastical visual effects....so vote for the non-inane uses of the charm?
>>42129451Remember that even different solar castes have different anima colors. Dawn mixes in orange and such. Zenith is golden white. Twilight adds blue and purple to gold. And so on.Add in all of the dragonblooded (and pretend dragonblooded sidereals) who become vortexes of elemetnal energy and so on.>>42129463And what's the difference? I just think it would be great for creativity. A word-only medium can use every excuse it gets to remind you of the visuals that are supposed to be happening.
>>42129500If we vote on getting it then that's what i'll end up doing.>>42129512To me the difference would be the aforementioned wallbouncing ninja fight between five tails and that abyssal.Acrobatic wall bouncing ninja fight: awesomeAcrobatic wall bouncing ninja fight full of floating hearts, words, etc. : distracting and annoyingI get that it gives EF and anons more options for Creativity, i'm just not stoked for it.Hence we must agree to disagree.
>>42129463Even forgetting the sillier uses PCP has, it's still a really good utility charm, it can be used to project our voice out to be heard by more people or to create a signal in middle of a battle to signal our forces, it's basically the D&D's Dancing Lights an Ghost Sound as well as a more visual Prestidigitation
>>42129567You're assuming people would come up with only retarded uses for the charm and then use them incessantly. Don't, instead you should come up with and vote for better ones.I really want PCP but I don't want a rainbow unicorn parade everywhere either.>>42129579Also it can create impromptu holographic displays and such.
>>42129579I think for battlefield applications we'd be better off getting advanced Dawn charms that deal with war.>>42129607If/when we end up getting PCP i'll roll with it and vote for options that aren't rainbow unicorn parades. Until then though i'll remain skeptical that it won't become a technicolor Wile E Coyote charm.
>>42129512>Remember that even different solar castes have different anima colors.According to the book:>Dawn - rose and violet, pale gold/white>Zenith - bright white and radiant gold>Twilight - bright red and gold, subdued blues and violets>Night - pale gold, ghostly white, soft violet, luminous grey>Eclipse - brilliant whites and golds, sparkly cores, and filmy, diaphanous edgesThey're supposed to look vaguely evocative of the sky or the sun at the time of day associated with the Caste. Also, while we're at it, here are the official colors of each caste:>Dawn - Lavender, Saffron>Zenith - Cobalt Blue, Gold>Twlight - Orange, Black>Night - Violet, Grey>Eclipse - SilverSolars do have a tendency towards white/gold overall, but it's nowhere near as dominant as you'd normally be led to believe, except in the case of Zeniths. And even then, the standard Zenith outfit features lots of blue cloth, with gold accessories.It's appropriate, perhaps, that Zeniths are associated with blue, the color of weddings, Venus, Air, and the North.
>>42129757Zenith a best
>>42129757>It's appropriate, perhaps, that Zeniths are associated with blue, the color of weddings, Venus, Air, and the North.Yeah, the developers paid a lot of attention to symbolism.
>>42129798Interestingly, purple - represented with violet/lavender on Dawns and violet on Nights - is the color of funerals, and the Maiden of Endings. Creation doesn't use black like Western cultures or white like Eastern ones for death - it uses violet. We've probably seen the color quite often splashed here and there in the Abyssals' outfits.And red - represented by rose and saffron for Dawns, and red for Twilights - is the color of warfare, governance, and royalty. This is in no small part due to MRL and, later, Scarlet using the color extensively in their respective conquests and administrations, not to mention that it's the color of the Maiden of Battles.Creation has a lot of interesting color symbolism that is often glossed over.
>>42129895>implying MRL isn't scralet
>>42124819Man, we still need to build a ton of manses.
