Aurora rolls under the hover car Hestia has brought through the portal. She is amazed by the fact the car is floating.“The car is floating!” She announces from underneath the car. She seems fairly happy but her mind is just repeating the phrase over and over.“That looks like it will take a while, is there anything going on in the cities that needs my attention?” You ask Hestia via a nearby drone.“There are a few minor things that can wait for your return,” Hestia says as the drone opens a compartment and begins projecting a hologram.“Have you installed projectors everywhere already?”“Functionality of the holograms is superior to previous displays, so outside of a few special cases yes.”Completed research>Reality stabilization matrix – The small component creates a subsystem that automatically compensates for all currently known variables that interfere with matter creation allowing for less time and mana needing to be used to reliably recreate something. >Tachyon particle physics – Hestia has fully studied the notes found within the jammer room. Tachyons are particles that travel faster than light, thus far Hestia has been unable to communicate with herself either slightly backwards or forwards in time but can now detect and create tachyons. Further study of advancing communications through the use of these particles will be necessary.>Superluminal computation – The understanding of tachyons helped Hestia develop the means of finishing the incomplete notes to exchange information at faster than light speeds. Combined with tachyons Hestia can now communicate with time distorted areas within a +- 10% change of standard time flow. Further experimentation with the tachyons may improve this functionality.(1/3)
(2/3)>Darkness projection – An application of photon distortion, Hestia has invented a method of creating an area of darkness. This project has been applied to your artificial sun idea to create a day night cycle in your city. At the request of the shadow goblins it has been weaponized to create a gun that blacks out light in an area for a short period of time.> Energy whips - These remnants of the adaptive robot were waiting to be studied so the researchers struggled through understanding how to work with monofilaments to adapt the energy whips for use. A spell can be discharged into the whip and will remain in effect until dispelled without taxing the caster’s mind. The researchers have created the means to make a monofilament with the same functionality that can be applied to any weapon.Ongoing researchForce-Energy structuresDefensive and enhancing symbiotes – stalled – lacking viable sample to expand researchTeleport jammerTeleport scramblerImportant notes>Demon scouts – A number of demons have been detected in the second layer of hell. They appear to be only there to confirm that the lord has been killed.>Living structure replacement – Hestia has completed replacing all buildings in the goblin city with living structures. The city will now automatically repair itself over time.>Artificial sun – The sphere has been launched above the city and now regulates work being done by organic life. Not being stuck in a perpetual haze of twilight has increased researcher morale and productivity.>Hell arena - Ayla cast cure onto a set of swords made with the energy whips’ spell containing effect to create weapons that heal the wounds they inflict. The demons seem to love the increase in reckless fighting this has brought to the arena.
(3/3)Aurora walks up to you still so engrossed by the hovering vehicle that she doesn’t notice the holograms from Hestia’s report.“The car is floating,” Aurora tells you yet again, “can I drive it?”You’ve seen her drive a normal car twice now and it was fairly awful, so are you going to let her drive a hover car to find the blue goblins?>Go back to your city to deal with something>Make Aurora stay at the outpost>Drive yourself>Let her drive, what could go wrong>OtherWelcome back to Afterlife Quest!

>>42578727Are you trying to lewd every female that shows or something?I give you credit for playing the secret agent angle.As for the city planning for the 2nd level, you can sketch out full details of what you want there exactly or just let it get built however Hestia would prefer. Right now I don’t have it listed but you have a small outpost that protects your portal and not much more.>>42578815Yes, right now only Ayla is unable to be implanted.Evangeline would prefer not to. Hestia isn't limited by normal implant restrictions due to her being an AI, so you can consider her organic body as having them all.
>>42578599Reseach Idea: Flight SymbioteA large symbiote that fits upon the back, takes a shape reminesent of angle wings.Something we could try to make later with hestia since we can't fly without a spell or mech suit.
>>42578849>Are you trying to lewd every female that shows or somethingShit... I didn't actually mean it like that, I swear. I just meant going fast as fuck, and getting serious air.Which is, admittedly, less impressive when your car doesn't touch the ground.
>>42578849I'd like for hestia to work with Tslah on that, I planned for her to take over the managment of the 2nd layer with our A.I.'s help.Parly because hell is the natual home for long neck demons, and because her presence helps maintain order in the demonic populace.Finally, I'd like Tslah (and her bodyguard arena champion) to get implanted with the Vitalizing regenerating panacea (with her permission of couse) and set her and her body guard in training after the plans for the city are worked out between them.
>>42578960>because the 2nd layer of hell is the natural homefixed
>>42578849Hay Apophis I had another idea, could we start up a news station?To help keep our civilization uptodate on what we are doing, and really just report on recent victories in the arena (like montage clips of the best fights) kinda like death arena season 1 or something.I though I'd be pretty cool once we get down to the total war layer of hell to just stream our fight against them live to our cities. Show em what the lord slayer can do.
“These hover cars are a bit more powerful than the cars you’ve stolen before,” you explain to Aurora, “you could crash and die very easily, I’ll give you lessons later.”“I can drive fine, it’s just more fun to be reckless,” Aurora huffs, then goes back to examining the hovering vehicle.“Hestia are the demon scouts going to be a problem?” You ask the drone.“Right now no, but as word spreads another demon invasion could take place,” Hestia says.“What if we expand the portal defenses there to become another more permanent city?” You ask Hestia, “we could ask Tslah to help administrate the influx of demons as well.”“Scans indicate she is still recovering, but having a demon queen take control would improve our control over the area,” Hestia states, “I will begin coordinating with her to construct what is required.”“If they agree please implant her and her servant with the vitalizing regenerating panacea, that should enable them to work more effectively without needing to worry about them being killed off.”“That is a smart plan, I should also be finished examining the enchanted cards and restructuring the casino storeroom soon. Then I will use the casino to experiment with the curse of greed more.”“Thanks for your hard work,” you tell her as you begin to leave, “have you found out more about the goblins here by chance?”“In thirty seven hours there is going to be a large auction of white tribe goblins on floor two hundred seventy five. That could be a good chance to gain the trust of the tribe.”“I’ll see if I can make it there in time then.”(1/2)
(2/2)“Come on! Floating car time! Flirt with mystery lady later!” Aurora calls out from inside the hover car.“You had better go then,” Hestia says as the drone starts its irritated spin and floats away.“Right, time to locate the blue tribe,” you tell Aurora as you climb into the hover car, “which direction do they attack from?”“I have no idea!” Aurora says, she really never paid attention to it before. She is really excited to ride in the hover car though.“This hovering so smooth and perfect, how did you get this car?” She asks.“We made it.”“You can make me one then too?”“Maybe later, we have a little over a day and a half to locate the blue tribe and then get to floor two hundred seventy five to assist the white tribe,” you tell Aurora.“Why do you want to help goblins so much?”“They seem to be the only ones who gave me a chance, so why not?”3d15+31 to pick up the trail of the blue goblin tribe.

>52As you speed away from Aurora’s outpost Hestia seals the hanger doors. Aurora is really happy, she’s never see a car this fast and amazing before.“Oh! Oh! There! I see it like before!” Aurora shouts out when she finally notices the trail you’ve been following.“Good work, we’ve been following it since we left.”“Well, you’re the goblin expert not me,” she says, “did you really get thrown down into the pit like you said before?”“Yes, why would I lie about that.”“That is what is on the other side of the portals then? Can I go there?” Aurora asks you. She thinks that no one would chase her for the bounty down there.“Didn’t I already tell you that maybe one day? You said you were too expensive to hire though,” You tell her.“Just kidding? It sounds safer there than up here on the run.”You come to a split in the trail, one side goes off down a collapsed section of the floor and the other goes right to a hole that drops several floors. The hover car can easily float down the fall, but you can’t tell from here if you will drop too far and need to back track up a few floors.>Use the hole>Take the slower path>Other>>42579091If you want to I guess you could.
>>42579642>>Take the slower path
>>42579642>Take the slower pathnot like we're already making great time with this car.I guess it just tickels my funny bone to think about a new's team composed of imps and goblins, headed by Ayla reporting on our ongings in the quest.
“This is a hover car, and that is a hole,” Aurora says, “we are going to drive down it right?”“No.”“But hover car!”“No.”Much to Aurora’s disappointment you take the safer and slower path. It takes only two hours to speed along through the rusted out remains of what once was a city of some sorts. Only scraps of garbage left behind by goblins remain now.You avoid the patrols and sentries easily enough, the goblins are usually fighting each other over nothing as usual.It is only nine floors below Aurora’s outpost that you find the goblins beginning to congregate in large numbers. There must be at least ten thousand blue goblins.“I don’t think we can drive much farther,” you tell Aurora.“Are you going to really going to just talk with them again?”“I’ll probably need to kill at least one of them, this tribe is supposed to be more aggressive than normal.”>Use your amulet and announce your presence>Sneak in and find the shaman>Sneak in and find the chief>Other

>>42580247yes, this is a stupid plan, and these are the most aggressive goblins, but goblins respect power and stubbornness. If we sneak In and then become chief some might not respect us and try to stage a huge revolt.
“Just stay close, try not to provoke them,” you tell Aurora.“Sure, I’ll leave that all up to you since you’re bulletproof.”You leave the hover car behind and walk openly to towards the goblins.The goblins notice you as you get closer and call out warnings to the others. “This tribe is clearly bigger than the last one, maybe you should have had a better plan,” Aurora says, she seems a bit more frightened this time.The goblins come to meet you as continue your approach. “Stops!” They yell“Yous give yous stuff then die!”“I am the Chief of the Fallen Tribes, I have come to speak with your chief and shaman,” you announce to the goblins while holding out your Bonetooth pendant.The goblins chatter with each other over the amulet.“Yous not come closer, tribe gets chief,” they decide.“So you don’t just hang out with the goblins, but you are their leader?” Aurora asks quietly while you wait.“Yes, it’s a long story.”A larger group of goblins arrive, two goblins are bickering among them. The chief and shaman are disagreeing on what to do with you.“Tribe welcomes goblin friend and chief of the fallen!” The shaman announces.“No tribe kills human and takes loot!” The chief announces.They look at the amulet and determine that it is real.“Is real, we welcome yous,” the shaman says.“Other human not have one, tribe kills her then,” the chief says, “Yous give tribe her, then tribe talks to yous.”“No, tribe just welcome goblin friends,” the shaman argues.“If yous strong and fight tribe champions then tribe talks,” the chief makes his final offer.>Challenge the chief for leadership>Agree to the chief’s challenge>Let them take Aurora>Other

>>42580656>>42580729oh I missed the part where he talked about a champion, let's do this then, at the same time.
“As chief of the fallen tribes, I challenge your right to lead!” You announce to the chief so all the goblins can hear you, “I will fight your tribe’s champion at the same time to make this a fair fight for you.”The goblins form a circle around you and the chief. The shaman beckons Aurora to come over to him for safety during the fight. “Yous dumb human. Tribe not have one champions, tribe have five,” the chief says and five goblins emerge from the crowd to back up the chief.>Your status - 67/67 hp, 45/45 mana, 92/92 external mana>Enemy status – one goblin chief and five goblin championsHow do you want to attack?>Fists>Knife>Gun>Spells>Ability>Other

All six of the goblins attack simultaneously in a coordinated group. These were supposed to be not the brightest goblins, but it looks like they can at least fight.Their weapons shatter against you uselessly.You shatter bones with your punches and then draw a knife and sever the tendons of the few that escaped being crippled by your punches.The crowd gasps in awe at the display of your power. “Human cheat!” The chief cries out in pain.“Cheat! Cheat! Cheat! Cheat! Cheat!” The goblins in the crowd chant.“We show you tribe true power now human!” The chief yells.The six goblins you are fighting being to grow and change. Their claws become longer and jagged, teeth jut out of their mouths at odd angles, tumorous masses appear on their bodies as their muscles grow to fit their new size, and they seem to have completely healed from the injuries you inflicted on them. You can no longer touch their minds, they are lost in a cloud of rage an bloodlust.>Your status - 67/67 hp, 45/45 mana, 92/92 external mana>Enemy status – Six enraged giant mutated goblins.>Fists>Knife>Gun>Spells>Ability>Other

With a cackle of electricity and the howling of wind a holy glow appears in your hand. Aurora is slack jawed as you manifest your rapier, a sword made from flesh and bone has her just a bit too shocked to think straight.The now monstrous and insane with rage goblins rush forward to attack you.It hurts when they try to rip into you, but their claws and teeth can’t break your skin. So you counter attack aiming to cripple the goblins to end the fight without killing them.>54 vs dc 30Your sword pulses with energy as you slash the goblins. You try your best to not kill them all instantly, turns out to be harder than you expected. The lightning and wind that your blade expels burns and cuts the goblins flesh every time your rapier even gets close to them.Soon all of the goblins have collapsed from their wounds and you stand victorious, or so you thought for a moment.The wounds of the goblins seal and they actually grow larger and their claws sharpen. Their rage further empowering their monstrous forms.>Your status – 59 -> 67/67 hp, 45/45 mana, 92/92 external mana>Enemy status – Six enraged giant mutated goblins, empowered by their suffering.>Rapier them more>Try another weapon>Use some spells>Some other ability>Other

So you want to heal the goblins? Alright I guess that’s something you could do.What sort of spells do you want to use for your destruction of the goblins?For maximum killing potential I would suggest:> Corrosion aura (Very dangerous could kill everyone near you)> Chain lightning> Elemental Burst> Ice blast>OtherAnd a 3d15+20 again to attack them

You look at the goblins tumor covered forms and wonder if healing them would help anything. You reach out with your healing aura and heal the goblins as best you can.All that happens is the residual damage from your attacks from before is now healed. The goblins now slice at you with their claws. You prepare magic as you try to dodge their attacks.>51 vs dc 40One of them gets lucky and tears a gash across your arm. It looks like they grow stronger the longer they stay in this form and recover from damage inflicted on them.You cast a spell and a lightning bolt strikes one of them.The magic from the chain lightning tears the goblins apart as electricity, wind, and holy energy leap from one goblin to the next.The goblins hit by the lightning have died, the sudden jolt being too much for even their monstrous forms to withstand.>Your status – 65 -> 67/67 hp, 45/45 mana, 52/92 external mana>Enemy status – One enraged giant mutated goblins, empowered by its suffering.From the shrinking corpses it looks like you’ve killed the chief of the blue tribe.

The monstrous goblin swings its claws at you, trying to rip you to pieces. >53 vs dc 30 You easily evade the goblin now that it is alone and blast it with your magic.Your spell creates a blast of elemental energy that knocks the goblin backwards. It howls with rage as ice coats its body, freezing it solid.The goblin’s corpse remains trapped inside a glowing prison of ice that pulses with electricity and wind.Everyone remains silent as they stand in awe from your magical display.“Yous have won the challenge, tribe now follows yous as chief!” The shaman eventually announces.“Chief!” The goblins erupt into thunderous applause while chanting.Aurora is still in awe from the amount of power you just casually threw around.“You got hurt there was blood right?” She asks and checks over your arm where the goblin clawed you.“It is fine, I heal fast,” you tell her, she is amazed that your arm is healed already.>Shatter the goblin popsicle because you can>Talk with the shaman>Take the blue tribe to the pit to unify the tribes>Other

“That really isn’t normal and your magic is way stronger than the researchers who were chasing-,” Aurora catches herself, “I mean stronger than I’ve ever seen before.”Looks like Aurora is going to pester you until she learns about your secrets, you’ve got her really interested now. You could always distract her with a hover car or something hopefully.“I don’t see other goblins that big, how do you get small again?” You ask the shaman.“Fallen tribes lost this power?” The shaman asks, “with time the rage passes, dangerous for friend and foe alike when goblins grow.”“Is it possible for goblins to not lose their minds when growing?”“White tribe steal the secret to secure mind, orange tribe steal secret to secure body,” the shaman shakes his head, “yous strong chief, maybe yous can take secret back.”“What if we unify the tribes, all goblins working together to be stronger?”“You say you chief of all fallen tribes?” the shaman thinks about this, “since yous strong and already unites the fallen, this works.”“Would the tribe want to reunite with the fallen tribes, I can bring you to them if the tribe is ready,” you ask the shaman.“Yes, tribe will follow yous chief,” the shaman nods, he is interested in what the fallen tribes are like.“I will prepare a passage then.”(1/2)
(2/2)Aurora already saw how you did this before so she helps you secure all the scanning probes into place for Hestia to create a portal for the goblins to return.The goblins watch as the magic works and a large mirrored surface appears and a drone comes out for Hestia to speak.“I have informed the other shamans, they are waiting to greet the new tribe,” Hestia says via the drone, “You have approximately thirty three hours now to intercept the slave auction to free the white goblins. I have discovered that the event is by invitation only, if you cannot obtain an invitation you will need to find an alternate means of entry.”“I can’t help you there,” Aurora is a little disheartened, “I’ve tried to get invites for the auction before, but those rich folk have too many bodyguards watching.”You watch as the goblins all wave to you saying chief and then off they go through the portal. You have some time to do something else, or you could head to floor two hundred seventy five early to try and stop the slave auction.>Return to Aurora’s outpost via the hover car>Go to your city with the portal>The blue’s raids have stopped, check on the orange tribe>Other
>>42583783>The blue’s raids have stopped, check on the orange tribe
>>42583783>>The blue’s raids have stopped, check on the orange tribe
After we get the orange tribe back to our city, we should ask Evangeline if she knows anyone on the higher levels to help us secure an invite to the auction. Or at least help us scope out its location.
>>42584431she has a fear of slavers shes not gonna know
>>42584453True, but if she knows we will most likely kill the slavers, she might be able to point us in the right direction.
“I should be able to convince the orange tribe to join us now,” You tell Hestia, “do you need me to wait to clear the portal once the goblins have finished going through?”“I will handle the clean up, you are short enough on time,” Hestia has the drone display a map for you, “if you use the hole you previously found your travel time will be shortened considerably.”The map shows that the hole goes down to approximately floor four hundred forty. Hestia has already begun to fill in rough details so you have a clear path down there.“Aurora, time to get moving,” you call out to her as she is slowly scooting over to the portal.“Can I drive this time?” She asks you.“No, you don’t know the way down.”“What and like you have a map?”“Yes, I do.”Aurora is elated when the hover car plunges around thirty floors down the hole. She then starts pestering you about your rapier and magic, trying to extract a promise to teach her out of you. Following your memory of where the collapsed sections are you drive the car at nearly top speed down to the casino’s floor.You are careful to avoid line of sight with the main elevator and the road so no rumors about hover cars get started.(1/2)
(2/2)When you arrive at the orange tribe the shaman is rallying the goblins to start another raid on the taxis.“Yous back chief!” A goblin shouts when you exit the hover car.“Chief!” More goblins shout.“Yous back again, yous stop blues raids?” The shaman asks.“Yes, the blue tribe has left to unify with the fallen tribes. The orange tribe can join the others as well if the tribe is ready,” you explain to the shaman.“Yous have stopped blues and Don, the tribe will follow yous now,” the shaman is surprised you took care of the blue tribe so quickly.Once again with Hestia and Aurora’s help you construct a mirror portal for the goblins. “The shamans are glad that you have reunited with two tribes so quickly, they will want to speak with you once you have secured the freedom for the white tribe as well,” Hestia says through the drone that comes through the portal.“Thirty one hours left then?” You ask Hestia.“Yes, I have found a series of communications that indicate that the auction’s final location will be given out only two hours before the start, to limit the ability of any patrols from shutting it down.”“Well on two-seven-five, there are not that many places big enough to do an auction like this,” Aurora says, “we could just look through them all. Oh! The casino guys are loaded, they might have an invite for the Don you killed.”>Ask around the casino>Ask Evangeline about the auction>Make your way up to floor 275>Get some sleep / prepare for the mission to free the white tribe>Do something else>Other

“It has been a while, I need to check up on the man hunt anyways so we will go to the casino,” You tell everyone as the last of the goblins filter into the portal.“Most organics do not work at your level of efficiency,” Hestia tells you.“Mystery lady is right, cut them a little slack they are just gangsters,” Aurora agrees.You wave it off and drive with Aurora to the casino, you leave your hover car out of view around the side of the building by the secret door. You think about going through it, but don’t really want to get dumped down the trap again.The usual goons send the signal that you’ve arrived once again as you walk through the front. You make your way to the office to find Vicky.She is speaking with someone when the elevator arrives.“-just find him. He didn’t have any connections before so it can’t be that hard,” Vicky is saying as the elevator doors open. She sends the man off when she sees you.“Don’t you have better things to do hang around here?” Vicky asks you.(1/2)
(2/2)“We’ve actually done a lot of stuff, I’m pretty impressed myself,” Aurora tells her.“How is the search going?” You ask Vicky.“Not luck so for, your helpful assistant at least gave us a picture to put the name to when asking these guys if they know her,” Vicky motion to the drone as she talks, “want to call it off and give the guys a break?”“Not yet, I came to ask if you know anything about a slave auction on floor two hundred seventy five,” you tell her.“Yea, the casino is loaded right, so you got to have an invite or two,” Aurora says.“Actually, we don’t,” Vicky says, “the Don was shit in many ways but he never worked with slaves, his influence kept the slavers out of all the four hundreds.”“You have people who may have heard something about it though,” you probe for more.“Nope, we keep clean, no slave business at all,” Vicky says and she has no stray thoughts about this, she is confident that no one would be working with the slavers.“That is fine then, I can locate the auction on my own, good luck with your search,” you tell Vicky.Looks like the Don had some decency, no business with the slavers at all, so you’re on your own here.>Ask the casino patrons>Ask Evangeline about the auction>Make your way up to floor 275>Get some sleep / prepare for the mission to free the white tribe>Do something else>Other

Her husband to be is the Don’s nephew, and his name happens to be Richie.From a previous thread spoiler. Any Richie she thought about is probably the guy.
“Perhaps Evangeline knows something,” you say.“I’ve got enough problems looking for one guy,” Vicky says, she doesn’t want to be sent on another wild goose chase.“No I’ll be back later to check up on this though,” you tell Vicky and leave the office to go to the new portal room.“So where is Evangeline anyways?” Aurora asks.“You’ll see.”“Are you letting me go with you then?”“I guess so, time is short, after we finish this up you are going to owe me the truth about that secret of yours,” you tell her.Aurora thinks about it while you walk, she is really worried about –them- but on the other hand she really wants to learn how you could use such strong magic.“Are you sure?” Hestia asks through a drone once you arrive at the newly refurbished room. A series of reinforced doors sit at the end of a long hallway, a second door that you assume leads to the next floor sits beside you.“Woah!” Aurora looks around amazed, “is this even the same room?”“It should be fine, we are in a hurry anyways,” You say.“Hair dye exists you know,” Hestia’s drone spins irritatedly.“What does that have to do with this room? It’s so different so fast!” Aurora says.A door opens to allow access to the portal. You emerge on the other side in a similarly reinforced room.Aurora keep quiet for now, even her thoughts are still as she soaks in everything.You feel Ayla’s mind perk up instantly with thoughts of you, her psychic energy drowns out everything else in the area.A drone is waiting to lead you to Evangeline.“We don’t need a guide if she is at her fountain,” you tell Hestia, and the drone just spins at you.As you leave the secure portal room and exit out into the research district Aurora stops and stares at the buildings built as pure mathematical expression.(1/2)
(2/2)“MASTER~” Ayla arrives with a call of excitement.Ayla stops midair and stares at Aurora.Aurora is very confused how a person is floating.“SO COOL!” They shout together, oh god what have you done.“She is floating!”“She has a fake face!”Ayla morphs into a copy of Aurora’s real face.“What?!? How?”“Ohohohohoho, pink is interesting master, good choice!”“Ayla is is Aurora, Aurora, Ayla,” You introduce them.“We are definitely keeping her!” Ayla announces. Then she grabs Aurora and floats away with her to play. She’ll be fine, probably, maybe, uh, she won’t die at least.You let Ayla have her fun for now and go find Evangeline in the Lake District.Evangeline smiles when you show up.“Done playing around with the thief then?” She asks you.“I think Ayla has that covered for now.”“You really brought her here?”“Yes, we have just over a day to locate a slavers auction to free some goblins.”Evangeline’s mood turns sour instantly.“Even goblins don’t deserve that.”“Do you know anything that could help locate them?”“From what I looked into before coming down here,” she remembers her studies about the slavers, “if you ask around wherever everyone says nothing is happening is where their auction will be held. They are like cockroaches though, even if you take out one auction they will spring back up.”“Is that all?”“I’m still not ready to face them, so I can’t help more sorry,” her eyes are filling with tears as she thinks about the people trapped in cages.“Could you free everyone, not just the goblins?”>Yes>No>OtherAnd>Make your way up to floor 275>Get some sleep / prepare for the mission to free the white tribe>Go find Ayla and Aurora>Do something else>Other

Can we give Eva a hug?I think she needs one.
“Of course, I can’t promise that I can take care of them all, but I can at least give them freedom,” you tell Evangeline.She sobs a bit as she thinks about the slaves more. She stands up and hugs you though. You return her embrace; she calms down a lot and starts feeling safe.“Thanks,” she realizes what she is doing and backs off again, “I’m not sure how I thought I could be a commander if this trips me up so much.”“Having a heart isn’t weakness.”She smiles again and goes back to thinking by the fountain.“You better not be reading my mind,” Evangeline thinks at you as you leave.You should probably find Ayla before she does something, you find a drone.“Hestia can you point me in Ayla’s direction,” you ask the drone.“She took Aurora off to your house, from the looks of things your intervention may be warranted,” Hestia says.“Is it that bad?”“No I’m sure you would enjoy what is happening.”You quickly return to your mansion to find out whatever is going on, both Ayla and Aurora are thinking about breasts, that can’t be good.“-no see I can make them change size,” Ayla says.“What that is so unfair,” Aurora replies.You find them naked in your bed groping each other, Aurora’s disguise is off revealing her pink hair. Aurora turns even redder when you walk in and freezes. Ayla just keeps on going.“Oh hey master, I was going to show her the pegasi but for some reason we accidently came here,” Ayla says nonchalantly.“Stop that!” Aurora tries to stop Ayla, “We were not doing anything, go away!”Aurora throws a pillow at you.“Yea, we were just comparing, I was just telling her how I can change the size-”Aurora muffles Ayla with a pillow.“Nothing, we weren’t doing anything.”>Help them with their comparisons>Let them have their fun>Mission time, not play time>Other

“Comparisons?” You ask, “is it really worth comparing against a shapeshifter?”“Yes! Wait no, we were not doing anything.”“Good idea master!” Ayla says as she reads your thoughts about helping.________________________________________I have a backlog of six lewds now.Uh, it’ll happen eventually but the massage section of Ayla’s first time took me a while to sort out.Don’t stay up all night for this.________________________________________“Have you considered that she could be a spy?” Hestia asks as you leave the girls behind.“Actually she is terrified of the researchers, since I can read her mind it’s a little easier to trust her,” You explain to Hestia.“When did you develop this ability?” Hestia asks.“After the prison incident, do you want to study this ability?”“Not now, you have only twenty three hours remaining,” Hestia tells you, “please proceed to the floor where the auction is taking place.”She teleports you directly to portal room.“You will need to find transportation to the main elevator from the casino.”A drone ushers you into the portal. Hestia is a bit angry about that, finding something for her to study should cheer her up.>Just use the stashed hover car>Ask Vicky for a ride>Find that excited driver again>Find a cab>Other

The office is empty but the casino is buzzing with business when you make your way out the front door.You look around the where the cars are parked trying to find that one cab driver again.“Hey! You are back,” a familiar looking man runs up to you, “I heard the news, but don’t worry I don’t’ talk much.”From what you’ve seen that is not very accurate.“So looking for a ride again?” He asks you.“Maybe next time, I’m covered for today.”“Right, Vicky would get you a ride, still don’t forget about me.” He bids you goodbye.You find your hover car stashed by the secret door. At full speed it takes no time at all to reach the elevator. You once again take care to keep out of sight and stash the car where no one should find it.The elevator allows you access with your red card and you head to the highest level the elevator goes to, floor three hundred and fifty. You notice a distinct change in atmosphere compared to floor four hundred. The people keep to themselves and move through the nearly empty streets quickly. You doubt anyone will be willing to talk freely here.>Try to find the next elevator up yourself>Ask around in a bar>Stop someone on the street for directions>Other

You consider asking Hestia to help you find the elevator, but the slow spin of the drone makes you think that it is probably a good idea to give her a bit of time to process what happened.>64You determine from the layout of buildings and streets that the elevator is going to be on the other side of the ring around the hole to the pit. This side has only the main elevator down and a pair of side elevators that only go a few floors. The other side of the ring should have the same set up with the main elevator headed upwards. There doesn’t seem to be any cab services and people give you a wide berth as you walk. You find a train service close to the elevators, tickets are two hundred credits for a one way trip. You just pay, you can always take some profits from the casino later if needed.>200 credits lostThe train is nearly completely empty, the only other person in your car sits as far away from you as possible. The people are scared, constantly thinking that anyone that passes too close to them is a slaver. Clearly this section of the city is very dysfunctional.When you leave the train and make your way to the main elevator up you find a group of five slavers blocking the elevator while people are gathered up in the area waiting for them to leave so the elevator can be used.“Come on then, only ten thousand to use the elevator, you rich upper city people can afford it,” one of the men yells while the others snicker.They are not going anywhere soon.>Ignore them and use the elevator anyways>Fight them>Talk to them>Other

>>42590156Dang phone auto correct. I was not supporting flashing the black card.
You told Evangeline that you would free the slaves so this is a good enough place to start leaving your mark.You fade into the shadows of an alley and search around for some things to kill the slavers with. You find a scrap of corrugated steel, with your strength you snap apart five small but very sharp pieces of metal. You wait for a clear shot and throw your new weapons right at the necks of the slavers. The metal pieces tear through the men’s throats and sever their spinal cords. To anyone else the men’s necks just suddenly started bleeding and they fell over dead.To avoid detection you slip away and come back to the area from another direction.People have shoved the bodies off to the side completely stripped and looted of all possessions. (1/2)
(2/2)The crowd has already cleared out allowing you to freely use the elevator. When the elevator stops at floor two hundred seventy five, you notice a clear shift in the quality of the floor. There are no longer slums but rather the area has taken on the air of a failing city, the buildings are poorly maintained but it is still clearly better than the slums belong built into the burned out remains of what once was.There are gangs of slavers running people off and keeping the streets clear. You still have seventeen hours before the auction starts, but with the slavers already taking over with this much force it could be difficult to gather information.>Portal in shadow goblins to help search>Look around for the location yourself>Ask around for information>Other> [ End ]This seems like a good place to stop.

Why isnt hestia spending any exp anymore? She has spell abilities she can raise. And stats.
>>42590938Tslah is holding onto exp for some reason too, though maybe she has to use a certain amount to get past recovery.
Basking needs changed since the pit now has a sun (kek)What do the animals, demons, and goblins all think of the nice new sun? They aren't asking for a moon now, are they?Then again, a moon could be nice, and some magic might work off of lunar cycles. Wouldn't hurt to try to make a miniature replica of the moon, i suppose.
