It went really well, I think and I got a really neat gun out of it. I also may have kidnapped some tiny golems and destroyed a Knight.Professor Ryuko said she wanted to talk to me. I'm gonna go see what she wants...
>>43595328You there, knife ears! We missed you! What's up? How's the best girl doing?
>>43595328But Fallout 4 is trash
>Tali is sitting down by Faelanerium's tail. The dragon has the long fluffy appendage curled around Tali possessively. He strokes the oddly soft fluff there while the dragon hums contently.>>43595361... Which girl is the best one to you guys? I mean I know which ones -I- think are the best..."So," Ryuko says, "Here's the deal. You seem to be getting along well with Faelanerium. But you gotta understand, dragons are prone to... Swings in behavior. They are fire incarnate and it is hard to work with fire without getting burned." She rubs the scarred side of her face. "So, to protect ourselves we have to create a binding rune that will link us with our dragons. This has multiple effects, see. First it makes it less likely that our dragons will lash out against us, even on accident, and hurt us with tooth, claw, or flame. Or poison... Second, while they are bound to us we can cast any spells we want using THEM as the focal point. Dragons are saturated with mana and as a result any spell cast while bound to and near them will be amplified a hundred fold.""Huh, okay... How do we do the binding?""Well..."1/2
>>43595398Tali, you look like you've got longer hair! You growing it out?
>>43595417It's the glamour.
>>43595398>I mean I know which ones -I- think are the best...And which ones might that be? Inquiring minds want to know.
>>43595398This seems very uneven. What other effects does the rune have on the two users?
>>43595398"Here's mine." She points to the runes on her chest. "It's simple and does what I need it to. You can make yours as complicated as you want. But even just copying mine would work. Don't do that, though, cause mine is an original work. Don't just steal it. Besides, coming up with your own is better for the two of you.">>43595431In my opinion? Well... I really like Vendal and Vaisi. So they're doing well as far as I know. Hmm... I guess right under them is Ninety-Nine Copper. Alisya is pretty cute but I don't know her that well.>>43595449"Are there any other effects that come from this binding?""Hmm... Sharing power, preventing accidental mauling... I guess your fire magic would be stronger? Or poison.So, got an idea for your own rune?"She seems really excited about all of this.
>>43595501DONUT STEEL TALI
>>43595398>... Which girl is the best one to you guys?Don't act like you don't know.>>43595449I guess it works both ways, but it's not like the dragon really has to worry about the rider lashing out on them in the first place...
>>43595501I.. you're boning Ceera, but you didn't mention her?Anyhow.Just posting this proposed binding rune again, it's got the slyph and the poison rune, and can also be interpreted as having either the human or the elf rune.
>>43595501Tali, just a reminder, did you ever give the twins that device you had made by Gears? You don't want to have to owe them a favor after all.
>>43595524Would Ceera even count as a girl?
>>43595524I liked this one from a while back.
>>43595544Well, until she starts dicking Tali back I suppose.
>>43595398>Which girl is the best one to you guys?All girls are best to at least one of us. So, how are all the girls doing? And the boys, we'd fuck them too. And the gender neutrals.
>>43595398Dragon girl great girl, Ceera when/if they count, Vaisi, ninty nine copper and non body taking fishys.
>>43595501>"Hmm... Sharing power, preventing accidental mauling... I guess your fire magic would be stronger? Or poison.So it allows us to draw on the dragon's power, and influences her behavior, but it doesn't allow her any control over us? What does it feel like to the dragon? I don't want to do this if I don't know what I'm doing to her.>So, got an idea for your own rune?"That rune doesn't look like it differentiates between one partner or the other.If we're going to make a rune, I think it should be about something more personal than your species. What best represents Tali as an individual? What best represents the dragon as an individual? What represents our relationship?>>43595524>>43595544Ceera is our best girlfriend/boyfriend. Of course we're going to take care of her if she needs help.
>>43595604Don't forget the genderless or eculidian gendered
>>43595328>I also may have kidnapped some tiny golemsRight, I remember that part.> and destroyed a Knight.Well, destroyed the body, but kept the core right?Speaking od golems, how's the progress on that spare body for us?
>>43595619do we have a dick rune? that would totally represent tali.
>>43595619>That rune doesn't look like it differentiates between one partner or the other.Maybe except for the part that human is on top?
>>43595501What about Ceera, you faggot?
>>43595666Ceera is a hermaphrodite
>>43595640we should show maolin the core. price of life is the same core type she has, so she should know all there is about how to make a body it can link to.
>>43595524What does the slyph rune do?
>>43595709It might've meant dragon, it's been a long time since I made it. As in, Fael is a poison dragon or something. I just misread it when I reposted it.
>>43595737Yeah, it's dragon. Went and double checked again, the line doesn't intersect the smaller triangles. So it's poison dragon + human/elf.
Do we have a rune for pussy and a rune for destroyer?
>>43595833there is indeed a rune for destroy,
>>43595727... I need to refresh my rune knowledge. I don't know what some of those mean. Wait, is that the elf rune? No no we can't use that. It would be too obvious.>>43595544She's a girl. Now, at least.She even has boobs.>>43595532Ah, no... I kinda forgot. I'll do that today!>>43595614>>43595604>>43595636So.. Everyone?>>43595619"So will this rune change how she behaves?""It basically makes it so they won't accidentally harm you in a fit or on accident. They will, however, still be able to harm you if their rage is great enough. So... Don't piss her off? It's mostly just a way of making sure her rider doesn't die on accident.">>43595694I actually wanted to do that. Also on my to-do list.>>43595524Hmm...>Tali draws out that one. Faelanerium leans in and watches."How's this?" Tali asks when the drawing is done."... It needs more fire.""More fire?""Yes. More fire runes. But... It is nice.">Ryuko comes over and looks at the rune herself. She stays silent for a while before nodding."Alright. You both agree on this?">Both dragon and rider nod."Good," She says. "I'll have it pressed into your armor and we can begin the ritual later today. It's a short thing but very vital. You can go back to class, Tali. And remember, don't tell anyone about this.""I won't. Bye, Faelanerium.">Tali goes to walk away. He feels something holding onto his cloak with an iron grip.>Faelanerium is holding onto his cloak with two massive claws."I want to go with you."
>>43595854I'm concerned arcane forces might understand it a bit too literally.
>>43595866hnng my heart
>>43595866Well, can she make herself smaller and hide the draconic features? If she can, then I see no reason why not.
>>43595866That'd be great! Does she know a way to shrink or anything?
>>43595866>Who, this dragon?>Just a friend, not bonded with her, nope>There's no way I could be a dragon rider, why would you even think that>What, you think that every person being followed by a dragon has to be a dragon ride? I'd never break school rules, of course.
>>43595866Tali, don't do it. Without a bind, you're risking Fael killing/maiming/BURNING your classmates if she goes with you. However, if you do let her go with you, she'll be easier to bind. I highly suggest you leave her at home.
>>43595866"You are very large and the passageways are not. How do you propose we solve this?"
>>43595866Well, can she shrink herself down? If she can and promises to be on her best behavior, I fail to see why not? If she can't shrink we need to make a spell first.
>>43595932yes, explain that the school is too small to fit her magnificence.
>>43595866As long as she can disguise herself as a student, I see no problem with her request.
>>43595866Can she come with, while also not being easy to recognize? I mean, this is a secret.
>>43595866Once the binding is complete possibly. Explain that a Dragon moving freely within school grounds is something that needs to be prepared for properly or else something bad might happen, and then instead of being fun it'll just be a miserable experience.
>>43595866How can you possibly say no to your dragonwaifu?
>>43595866There is... how do I put it diplomatically... a little problem with logistics of the whole thing. We would have to make her more human-sized.Also the thing with being prone to fits of rage and spitting poison. She's basically a Space Marine.Just hug her and promise you'll be back soon.
>>43595866Well the only thing about the school that we'd care to show her are the people there, so what if we promise to introduce her to our friends later? If she can't fit inside, anyway. If she can into shrinkage then I don't see a massive problem.
>>43595932You know, if her passing would be the only concers, she might as well force her way through. Dragon will not be restrained by couple bricks.
>>43595866Bring her with you, it will be good to build a rapport with her
>>43595923Hah... Yeah..."Faelanerium... There's a few problems with that?""Like?""Well... You don't really look like a student. I mean... You're a giant dragon. Any way you can fix that?""Hmm... I am already tiny. But behold, Tali! Witness the power of the Dragons!">Faelanerium lets go of him and steps back. She then bursts into flames.>With a quick spell Ryuko shields Tali from the flames, diverting the dangerous poisoned fire away from the elf. She gives him a 'See what I mean' look.>Eventually the flames die down.1/3
>>43596100>The dragon stands triumphant, her entire look changed. Gone are her horns, scales, and wings. Instead she stands before Tali in a Petal class uniform, clearly inspired by his own."Ta-da! I, Faelanerium, now resemble a normal tiny human. We are good to go, correct?"
Rolled 2 (1d20)>>43596128OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODTALI, YOU BIND THAT DRAGON RIGHT NOW
>>43596128Tali! Whatever you do don't mention the tail! It's too adorable to let her think that she looks proper human!
>>43596128Can you hide the tail too?
>>43596142kuro has a tail. we can blame the tail on any number of things.
>>43596147.. Somehow I don't think even hiding the tail would help now.
>>43596147hug her, do it now
>>43596147Can't we shrink her?
>>43596147That size ain't gonna work, Tali. And unless you can glamour Fael down to size, this isn't gonna work.
>>43596147Still far too big Partner, also tail.
>>43596147OH GOD DAMNIT
>>43596147Still too big. Also, the tail is kindof obvious.
>>43596147clearly she is the victim of a gigantism spell.
>>43596147Hug her. Now. Also take her with us, nobody will notice.And even if they do notice, it's not like they can stop her.
>>43596147>[x]Touch Fluffy Tail
>>43596147Also Tali, when we leave make sure to pay proper respects to Fael's Mom. She's helped us alot and we should try and stay in her good graces.
>>43596219The obvious response. I'm honestly surprised it wasn't suggested sooner.
>>43596147......I can still see the tail.
>>43596246Because.>>43595398>He strokes the oddly soft fluff there while the dragon hums contently.Tali is quick learner and touches fluffy tail without being prompted to.
>>43596147Um... she's still about as large as a dragon. The school is built for human-sized beings. There are spatial issues in our way here.Wait, we know the rune for "small". Could we improvise a spell to shrink her?
>>43596302Convert target poison dragon into small poison dragon, mana source dragon?Using the staff as well of course.
>>43596327Do we need a trigger to stop the shrinking? Otherwise, she might end up tiny.
>>43596358Who doesn't want a pocket dragon?
>>43596302>>43596327More importantly, could we reverse the spell? Amplify Dragon Body? Add Dragon to Dragon? I don't want to get her stuck in a small body.
>>43596358I suppose Tali could just stop the channeling at a suitable slightly shorter than him height.I'm in no position to draw the rune at the moment though, someone else has to do it.
>>43596379Don't we have generic dispell magic?
>>43596399I suppose that might work if we attached the shrink spell as a target.
"I'm sorry Faelanerium but... You're too big.""Hmm?""The school is built for people my size.It can't someone of your... Magnificence.""So? I will tear the walls to make room for me.""No, no! That is not a good thing! Uhm, Professor, is there a way to shrink her?">Ryuko shakes her head."Nope," She says, "It's a mass problem. We shrink her then where does all the extra stuff go? Or you may end up making her more dense which, as far as we can tell, does not work well on organics. Trust me, the riders have tried to find out how.""Darn. Sorry, Faelanerium. Maybe another time? I could bring my friends here an-""No!" The dragon stomps her foot on the ground. "I am a dragon! No one tells me where I can and can not go! Not even you! I am going to the school!">She storms off, her footsteps shaking the earth and echoing loudly in the chamber.>Tali looks at Ryuko, his eyes wide."Son of a... Shen! Go stop your daughter!">The older dragon stares down at Ryuko. Then, with a puff of flame, she looks away and moves a little to make herself more comfortable, a clear sign that she has no intention of moving."Shen! Dammit Shen that is your daughter! Go get her!">The dragon responds by opening her mouth and shooting a bolt of lightning near Ryuko's foot. She closes her eyes and pretends to nap."You..! Tali, you have to get her!""Me!?""I'm not gonna be that Dragon's rider! She could destroy me!"
>>43596481You've gotta bind her with the rune, Tali. THE BINDING PROCESS HAS TO BE DONE NOW.
>>43596481Go somewhere private and take her through a realistic illusory school! It's fine if she knows your innate magic since you'll be bonded anyway.
>>43596481Put all the mass into her tail, A long long tail.
>>43596523Or.. could you void it?
>>43596481>http://pastebin.com/9XdsZ5bCCast comfy magic on her
>>43596147Hug her and pet her. She is the most adorable dragon ever.YOu have to find a way to shrink her to human size.
>>43596481just have her visit the school auditorium, park, or open area.
>>43596481Tali! Stop being a pussy! You're a man full of elf syrup, so go tame that dragon.Besides, you're good with people she'll understand. Maybe she can join the classes outside and we can get the teachers to hold outdoor classes or something sometimes.
>>43596481Comfy Magic, ALLL the comfy magic!
>>43596481Right now: Run after her, you fool!In the long run, I can think of two options.One to get her a human sized-simulacrum she could "ride" to hang with you.Two to roll with the shrinking plan, just because the Dragon riders couldn't do it so far, doesn't mean you can't. After all, they didn't have such a wonderful advisor by their side like you do.
>>43596481Quick Tali, talk some sense into her, or she'll level the academy.
is a great time for golems. get a golem body she can possess and explore with.
>>43596481>It's a mass problem. We shrink her then where does all the extra stuff go?Mass is energy. Convert that mass into a convenient kind of energy, and then store it as energy, like in a large capacitor or the world's biggest hot water bottle.
>>43596481>[x]Touch Fluffy Tail
>>43596481Remember the three cornerstones of deep leadership, Tali: swearing, threatening and baseless promises.
>Tali runs after her. The dragon has the advantage of a longer stride but Tali is able to quickly advance through areas that she has to duck under. He catches her in the old training grounds of Thorn Class.>Tali grabs his spellbook and casts his Comfy Magic on the dragon. She stops in her tracks and slowly turns her head towards him."You dare try to use magic on me?"1/2
>>43596760it's comfy magic!COMFY MAGIC!HOW CAN ANYONE SAY NO
Rolled 1 (1d20)>>43596760"Yes!"
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>43596760I JUST WANTED TO MAKE YOU COMFY
>>43596760Hope you remember that shield spell, knife ears.
>>43596760GG been fun rolling with you knife-ears, but looks like your ears are about to roll.You know, 'cause they're on your head, and your head is gonna roll. So your ears will- you know what, forget it. I'm not going to waste my genius on a corpse.
Stop using magic on everyone who acts unexpectedly, you faggots.
>>43596760You were moving too fast for tail rubs, so we have to use a long-distance substitute
>>43596760Whelp, it was fun, but go down with a fight.
>>43596760turn ground into icecream!
>>43596760How else are we supposed to make you comfy when you keep moving your tail away
>>43596760Let's make couple things clear.One, she is a big girlTwo, the next step in her plan might be crashing the whole place.
>>43596760>[x]Touch Fluffy Tail
>>43596760>Tali can see something building up in her mouth.>>43596893"Well... You're just so fast, Faelanerium. I couldn't hope to keep up with you. I was trying to pet your tail from afar. I know how much you enjoy that.""......""And how else can I make you comfy when you're so far away if not with magic?""..." She spits something onto the ground. A green glob of fluid eats away at the earth there, making a sizzling hole over a foot deep. "Oh. I'm sorry. I forgot your legs are so short.">>43596518"They really are. I also wanted to tell you that I have a way you can explore the school.""... You do?""Mhmm. But first I need you to close your eyes. Can you do that for me?">She stares at Tali for a while before nodding and closing her eyes.Oh boy. This is gonna hurt.>Tali casts the biggest illusion he ever has, all centered around her. It will affect almost all her senses, even, with great effort, her sense of hearing.>When the dragon opens her eyes she is within the school."This is...""Welcome to the Magical Academy!""Tali... How did you do this?""Magic~"Oh god I can not keep this up for long. Where should I show her?
>>43597036The Science lab, Eastern appreciation club, a dungeon?
>>43597036Classrooms and the science lab?
>>43597036Show her the classroom, of course, and her protagonist's seat.
>>43597036Since we don't have much time, let's let her decide. Tell here what's around and ask what she'd like to see first.
>>43597036Show off the people having fun, whatever you do don't show her anything valuable
>>43597036The easy parts. Classroom, along with a fake Holly. Make sure to use your Mana gem to keep the glamour up.
>>43597036remember you have that mana gem. tap that for some extra. talk to '99c' over there.
>>43597036Time is short, hit the essentials.The back of the school building, the bathroom, the gym storage room, an unused classroom, the nurse's office, the out-of-sight spot under the stairs.All the best spots for boning. This is her only chance to get the double-peacesign ahegao schoolgirl experience so you need to make it count! Finish inside!
>>43597036Petal Class! She's even wearing the uniform!
>>43597036>[x]Touch Fluffy Tail>>43597122
>>43597036Sweet Dragon Christ, suck mana out of the gem while you're doing that or something
"Well, where would you like to see first? There's Petal Tower which is my classroom, the science labs, library, the-">>43597122... Really?I'm barely able to manifest a fake version of me. That's just...And she's my dragon!"I want to see your classroom! Show me the way!" Faelanerium says, her tail swishing back and forth in excitement."Then let's go.">Even though he is drawing mana from the gem he still must make it quick. Making something of this size is draining even the vast supply in the gem.>He takes her through Petal Tower, shortening the amount of steps there really are, and goes to the common room. Inside is Tessa, Vendal, and Lan.>'Vendal' walks up to the dragon."Hello there. I am Vendal of Petal Class. It is my pleasure to meet you.""Greetings, snakeperson! I am Faelanerium, Tali's partner and dragon."..."Oh," 'Vendal says, "It is nice to make your acquaintance."I have never done stuff like this before... It's really hard to keep it all up.I need something less taxing...
>>43597332>... Really?No. I mean - there will be other opportunities.
>>43597332YOU CAN DO IT, KNIFE EARS!BELIEVE IN THE ORB WHO BELIEVES IN YOU.If you can manage to make a fake Fuwa, you'll be able to recoup some of your energy through napping.
>>43597332Tali, just trust us, we will happily take over your mental faculties and shape your illusion for you so you can focus on maintaining everything.Plan semi-hostile takeover is go
>>43597332Okay, guys, Tali needs a hand. Figurativelly speaking.Remind me, how did it turn out the last time he tried to power a spell with us as a source?
>>43597332Whatever happens, make sure you keep up your aura of girly-ness.Also, if you are about to lose the school illusion, make sure you tell Fael about it being a glamour beforehand, no need to risk a dragon-sized temper tantrum.
>>43597401It killed us.
>>43597332We could tell her that we're running low on energy. If she lets us take a break and bind her, then we could use her to power the spell.That's how it works, right? Could you use her power for your natural elf magic?>>43597401We managed to create a small amount of solid matter, cracked, and lost consciousness.
>>43597332Ask Fael if she can lend you some mana.
>>43597401we cracked and went unconscious. >>43597332get rid of any windows, land and tessa should leave, only one character should be present at a time.
>>43597332Maintain the illusion for only parts that are currently visible.
>>43597332Tali you don't need fricking huge illusions around her, just really tiny ones in front of her eye, maybe surrounding her head so she can turn her head.
>>43597481What about senses of hearing, smell and walking around?
>>43597332Here's an idea. Take her somewhere else in reality, then make an illusion of a human-sized version of her and take it with you through the school, while showing her an illusion of what the copy sees and have it match what she does.Would this be easier for you? I think it might be easier to copy something you're currently seeing than to make it all up yourself, but I'm not sure if it works like that. I also don't know if you can maintain the illusion from that far away. What do you think?
>>43597507Small but close to her head. Touch is just going to have to be on a case by case basis
>>43597473Its not me. I'm busy and only barely able to even watch this thread.
>>43597519That would work if not for the fact that my spells work less when they're not immediately around me. So, all in all it would be about the same difficulty.>>43597448>Tali has Tessa and Lan sorta just... Slide away. The pressure abates somewhat.>>43597387...Can I really trust you guys? Cause if I can just focus on maintaining the magic while you take her around...Alright, I'm trusting you guys.
>>43597642>Alright, I'm trusting you guysOh boy, here we go.>>43597451You call that ahegao? This is ahegao!
>>43597642So Fael, wanna see the bathhouse?
>>43597642vendal says 'i like your tail, it is very fluffy'
>>43597642>Alright, I'm trusting you guys.
>>43597642>I told the elf to let us control his mind and he actually did it the absolute madmanALRIGHTY THEN. LET'S BEGIN THE DOUBLEPEACE TOUR.WE WILL BLOW HER MIND, AND SHE WILL BLIW OUR DICK.
>>43597642Dragon girl a cute. CUTE
>>43597642Protip: never trust us
>>43597642>Alright, I'm trusting you guys.Ha. Ahahahahaha. HAHAHAHAHAHA.Nigga by the time we done she gon be begging for elf cream like a fatalpulse MC after her third abortion.
>>43597642Alright, let's at least try not to fuck this up. Remember, dragon mom will murder us if we mess with her kid's head
Rolled 18 (1d20)>>43597642alright. obviosuly we need to show her around, like our nice fluffy bed. and also let's make her feel like she's being petted- but like, all over her body.But seriously->>43597693>>43597680>>43597674Guys. Let's blow her mind (lewdly).Then make her our wife.
>>43597744It's scary I know what you're talking about
Guys, can we NOT screw Tali over?Because if we screw him over too quickly, then he won't trust us anymore and then will throw us away or something. We need to bide our time and wait until the right moment to unleash maximum lewdness onto the world
>>43597642Hi, Fael! Can you hear us? Is it working?Tali's magic is getting a bit hard for him to maintain, so we'll be showing you around the rest of the school. How are you feeling so far?
>>43597642I'm in favor of playing this straight
>>43597749>>43597775yeah guys. we nee to decide between a little fun now, or a lot of fun later. i vote a lot of fun later.
>>43597775I'm with this guy, let's play nice. For now.
>>43597642You can trust at least half of us, Tali.
>>43597642We shall do this without pranks or whatever, we won't screw you over, boy.But we are going to act romantic and compliment Fael.
>>43597642>Alright, I'm trusting you guys.Not too bright, is he?
>>43597828Just figuring that out now?Remember the time we tricked him into assuming the form of a human girl?
>>43597642Alright, let's feed some more power to the illusions and conclude the school tour. Her mom will turn us into an ornament in her hoard if we mess with her.
>>43597775This, we can fuck him now or we can wait until he's better at the whole magic and women thing to fuck with him
>>43597837What, that was a decent disguise as any other.>>43597642Let's show her the library, where The Book of Spells is in. It's a very important artifact...if she lusts for it, she could be an accomplice to steal it from the school.
>>43597642>That would work if not for the fact that my spells work less when they're not immediately around me. So, all in all it would be about the same difficulty.We could probably enhance your range with runes. Transfer Elf Magic to Target? Infinite AOE Target Magic? Elf Magic Follow Target? We've got to be careful so we don't end up accidentally giving someone else your powers or something. It would be handy if we had a rune for Space or Distance or something like that.
>>43597642Guys we have to play this (mostly) legit. If she catches on that it's an illusion then she'll both realize Tali is an illusion-elf, and get really angry. Our life is at risk here.
I can hear you guys, still! I swear if you try to molest that dragon I am going to take control and... Leave you in a box for a week! Or something!And if her mom finds out we are both gonna be murdered or worse!>>43597892I'm not the best with spellcrafting... If you have any ideas let me know cause you guys spellcraft better than I do.Alright, I'm gonna stop talking for a bit. Don't kill her. Or molest her. Don't do either of those things.For reals.----->>43597683"I like your tail. It looks very fluffy. Mine has scales on it.""Oh? Thank you very much. I make sure to brush it whenever I am in this form. That is the one thing I do not like about my dragon form. No flesh or fluffy tails.">Vendal nods in understanding."Tali," Faelanerium says, "I wanna see where you guys keep your hoards. Can you show me?"
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>43597967Unzip your pants, Tali. We'll show her your "hoard", alright. It's even got a syrup flavor to it!
>>43597967take her to our room and show her our pile of stuff.
>>43597967Show her our room and what we have, don't need her getting ideas about the school's repository.
>>43597967Turn into that one girl that's carrying around a small fortune of artifacts at all times, explain that they just wear their hordes and Tali's dirt poor.
>>43597967Show her our hoard.Our hoard of WOMEN.Basically tali's bedroom, where Ceera, vendal, varsi and 99C lie in wait.
>>43597967Bedrooms seems like what she's asking for. Human hordes are pathetically tiny and spread out though Passing Anita on the way seems like a good idea though. Freak wears her horde.
>>43597967Um, most of the smaller races don't exactly keep hoards. We have possessions, but we don't do that thing of putting them all in a pile to display. We generally leave them around our living space wherever they'd be the most useful.Speaking of which, inviting someone to our living space is generally considered a somewhat intimate request. Are you sure that's what you feel like doing?
>>43595866>More fireI know I'm late to the party, but how do you feel about the fact that Fael basically just painted you in flame decals like some kinda tacky automated carriage or whatever your fantasy analog to a hotrod is?
>>43598008No, no, bad anon.>>43597967Vendal strolls away, giving the excuse of classes and an apology, and Tali appears to say, "I hoard knowledge, actually. I could show you my spellbook, if you want."
>>43597967Uhhh... who has the most bling around and isn't a dragon? Or just the most stuff? 99c store?
>>43598062Adding "nothing lewd" to mine
>>43597967Alright let's show her Tali's room, and like, the stuff he's collected so far. It's a pathetic little hoard but....actually let's inflate it a little. Have there be a tiny pile of gold there too.
>>43598075Not bad then we can explain that the other creatures hoard different things like little miss 'I totally got this and am not turning into a Ceer'.
>>43598028I actually suspect that if Vaisi and Ceera start spending more time together, they might.... bond in very interesting way.
>>43598126Ceera's breasts shrinkVaisi's stomach grows
>>43597967That's kind of an odd request. I don't think we have something that matches that exactly.Would you like to see the library? It's where the school keeps its books, and they've got a lot of books.
>>43598126'Erybody gettin sum Tali
>>43597775I agree, but mostly just because I Fael has a smile worth protecting.
>>43597967>>43598075I'll support this. It's actually pretty reasonable.
>>43597967I, uhI don't have much of a horde.I'm really embarrassed about it.
"Well, we don't really have much in terms of hoards... I can show you what I've collected if you want.""Yes. Show me your hoard, Tali.">Vendal smiles."Well, Tali, I have to go to class but I'm sure I can entrust her tour to you, hmm? You seem to be doing such a good job already. As though some divine hand from above were guiding your actions." The undine says.>She waves goodbye and leaves the pair alone. Tali takes the dragon through the school, seeing Anita on the way to his room."We humans don't have much in terms of hoards and our most valuable stuff we tend to carry around. See?">He points to Anita."Ah..." The dragon says. "But aren't you worried you'll lose it?""It tends to be pretty secure.""Hmm... And what is her name?""She's Anita. In Thorn class.">Faelanerium stares at her for a while longer before continuing on with Tali.1/2
>>43598288She wants dat booty.
>>43598288>When the arrive at his room Tali's treasure is on his bed. Without hesitation the dragon pounces upon his meager hoard and rolls around on it.>She ends up on her back looking rather displeased."Tali... This hoard is pitiful. This is not comfy at all."
>>43598404Explain you've only been hoarding for a short while. And promise to get better.
>>43598404In your defence you only just started collecting interesting stuff
>>43598404"I'm working on it, now that I'm doing dungeon dives I've got a lot more opportunities to increase it."
>>43598404Tell Fael that's because we want to improve her hoard. It's why our hoard is so pitiful. Let's take her on a dungeon run to improve it.
>>43598404It's a starter hoard. Don't worry about it, it'll get better in time.
>>43598404Tell her you are self conscious about the small size of your hoard.
>>43598404I just got started, And I'm not a dragon.
>>43595363Just think, in a few thousand years even you might be worth something.
>>43598404Humans tend to hoard various things. While dragons with their broad tastes might hoard anything from world-ending ceer artifacts to shiny rocks, humans tend to focus on one or two things to collect. Tali, for example, while he does hoard Ceer artifacts, tends to prefer hoarding magical knowledge instead. It's not nearly as comfy to lay down on, but comfy magic can fix that, so it solves itself.Besides, how big was your hoard when you were Tali's age? Or size?
>>43598404"I'm just a little elf. Of course my hoard would be nothing compared to the splendor of a dragon."I'm trying though. Check out these artifact panties I got a little while ago. They're the comfiest.
>>43598486pretty sure they're still keeping Vaisi busy
>>43598404Well, we don't generally sleep on our wealth. We tend to keep it in safe places and rest our bodies on soft objects.
>>43598486 Tali gave those to Vaisi, because he's a terrible person, and a bad hoarder.
>>43598404Tiny hoards for tiny people. but worry not, Tali is working to build a hoard big enough for him, you and maybe even a couple of dragonlings.
>>43598516We should go check on her. Make sure she hasn't been so ruined by tentacles that not even the magnum dong can blow her brains out.>select all pictures of bedsCaptcha my nigga, you know what's up.
"Well... I've only been collecting for a while. And my thing isn't really gold and artifacts. I'm sure you dragons all collect things that appeal to you, right?""Mhmm. I like shiny things. My mom also likes shiny things. But Meenarium, that jerk, likes to collect oddly colored rocks and shells. But she's stupid so...""Well, jerks aside, I like to collect knowledge." Tali shows her his spellbook with all it's runes and new spells. "Secrets, spells, runes. All of these are a part of my hoard. So, while my treasure pile may not be that great what I have in here is far more valuable.""It is?" She stares at the book with renewed interest."Mhmm. But... I would love to make a bigger hoard. With more, greater things.""As would I.""Then we can make that our goal, hmm? Let's work together on it.">Faelanerium nods."We shall have the greatest hoard. ... I will admit, this soft stuff is rather nice... It reminds me of when I lay on my mom's stomach... Warm and..." She begins to snore.
>>43598658Tali, end the glamour. It looks like the comfy magic worked after all!
>>43598658Ok, drop everything but the bed and get some breather...
>>43598658That is adorable, just don't get too close lest she grab you and never let go. Or squish you, either/or.
>>43598697The beds a glamour too....End everything. See what shes sleeping ontop of.
>>43598658Prepare a quick slideshow for Tali to look through once he ends the Glamour, so he can see FOR HIMSELF that we didn't illusion Fael being gangbanged. By werewolves.
>>43598658Where is she sleeping?
>>43598658When she wakes up we can say we carried her back, right?
>>43598733>Thorn is hurling fireballs at her now. She finds it comforting.
>>43598710her mom obviously.
>>43598710Sorry for crushing you, Gears. Dragon thought you were comfy, though.
>>43598658>MeenariumI wonder if we can be friends with her too. We can get oddly colored rocks and shells.
>>43598737We'll tell her the dorm head asked us to carry her out, because students are supposed to sleep in their own rooms.
>>43598658Put her to bed and go do your errandsAlso give her a goodnight kiss
>>43598892>Also give her a goodnight kisscough, poisonous drool, cough
>>43598809Bitch I have got the ODDEST looking rock over here at my place. It looks EXACTLY like a beaked human skeleton covered in misshapen nodules of spongelike bone, garbed in robes of smooth scales so slight they flow like water whose movements fill the air with hollow chitters and echoing clicks reminiscent of the workers in the hellish dream-hive that hollows out my soul to nest their dark brood.Dragons LOVE that stuff.
>Tali ends the illusion. The drain such a grand illusion had on the gem is noticeable and it feels somewhat depleted of it's massive store.>When the illusion breaks he sees Faelanerium's mother, with the smaller dragon resting on top. She strokes her daughter's hair and hums a soothing tone. She looks at Tali and says 'Thank you' in a heavily accented voice.>She then motions for him to run off while she keeps her daughter sleeping and calm... You guys didn't molest her or anything right?
>>43598658Quick, check what color her panties are.
>>43598906she has a big mouth, we can kiss the part that isn't poison.
>>43598933no, we really wanted to, you have no idea. but your dragon is still pure.
>>43598933Nope. Now get yourself to the library and do the thing.
>>43598906It's telling that you hear "goodnight kiss" and immediately assume frenching.A chaste press of the lips doesn't swap spit, nor does it need to be against her lips in particular.anyway as long as she doesn't have poisonous vaginal secretions we're good to go for a kiss on the "lips"
>>43598906Foreheads and cheeks are okay for kisses, anon
>>43598933>You guys didn't molest her or anything right?No. But we did tell her about your syrup. She said she wanted to try some after her name.
>>43598933No Mam'! All that happened was a tour of the academy.
>>43598933Nope. But we really had to restrain ourselves. You owe us, okay?
>>43598933We did not molest her. You got lucky.
>>43598933Of course not, you tree hugger. Everything went perfectly fine. Now get those chores done. We'll be back soon enough to bind her!
>>43598933She's pregnant. 99c is the father.I'm as confused as you are.
>>43598933how DARE you?WE ARE GENTLEMEN!WE NEVER MOLEST AND TELL!
>>43598995I say we should look up some books on dragon anatomy. Just in case.
>>43598933Take a look for yourself.>>43597967>>43598288>>43598404>>43598658Could you see those?
>>43598933>... You guys didn't molest her or anything right?Only a little.
now take the core to maolin and talk about her visiting 99c and the minigolems.
Dragon, sweet dragon.We would never turn such a hand against her in impropriety.She is your future ally and bound dragon, to stoop so low behind your back is indeed beneath us.Also we lack hands.
>>43598933For future reference, I think I might have a way around the illusion range problem. We could use a nonsentient golem body to move around the academy while you stay with her and maintain the illusion. Since the range issue is based on the distance between you and the target, it shouldn't be an issue with remote observation. The only issue is making the golems convincing, since it'll be out of range, and linking it with your minds.Or maybe it would be easier to disguise the golem from a distance than to generate a full-sensory illusion for Fael from a distance. Would that work for you?In any case, it should be easier to show her a good time after binding her, since you could draw on her energy to do it.
>>43599170What about a two part spell? One that places a targets senses in a golem and another that links their control of the golem to an item they can wear like a necklace?The target would stay near to the caster and yet still allow remote operation of the golem.
>>43598933Why would we molest your dragon when there's a hottie milf we're aiming for.Just gotta get that mecha...
>>43598933We didn't do nuffin.
>>43599170>>43599243I think that would be waaaay easier than what I just attempted. Especially if I have Faelanerium powering it with me.Also... I'm glad you guys didn't molest her. I was honestly super worried what you would try to do but... It looks like my worries were for nothing!I guess I can trust you guys a bit more with this kinda stuff in the future, huh?So... Thanks!>Tali waves goodbye to the two dragons and goes back into the school. There's something he's been long neglecting...---------------------------"Dear sister, do my eyes deceive me?""They do not, sister. He has returned.""With the item?""Let's hope so.""About time.""Better late than never.""I hate that saying.""As do I. Welcome, Tali. Do you have it?">Tali hands... Alex? the artifact. She smiles and takes it from him, toying around with the item for a bit."Perfect." She says. "Consider your debt filled.""Finally.""Oh hush, sister. How many times have others simply forgotten?""Very true. Well, Tali, if you ever require something from us.""Something book related.""Feel free to ask again. You've proven yourself... Adequate at repaying favors so we would be more than happy to assist."Hmm.Is there anything I need that's book related?
>>43599365didn't we need some super secret book? I forgot
>>43599365Kama Sutra for wizards
>>43599382Hell I forgot what we just handed them, can anyone refresh me?
>>43599382We already took at a look at the alumini's book a thread's ago if I remember right.
>>43599365well, the artifact book is only contained because of our will so we can't do much with that. can't think of anything. to maolin!
>>43599365How to please a dragon
>>43599365>Is there anything I need that's book related?Yes, you need a book of bad puns.
>>43599365Oh hey, there's Collete in the background.See if they have any books related to Mantis Shrimp mating. You wouldn't want to disappoint Shara, would you?
>>43599365I don't think we need anything book related right now.
>>43599405In exchange for not owing them a favor after asking if we could take a look at all the graduating student's work compiled in a guarded book, we got them a device that could store and record vast amounts of material for cataloging the library.
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>43599403>>43599365>>43599429this obviously.
>>43599365Tell them you have been keeping a journal and ask if they would take a look at your log and then plaster them with syrup
>>43599405We got to see the big ol' secret spellbook in the back. Remember? The one that's similar to the one we got off of Vaisi. A bigger, hopefully less evil, version where all who graduate inscribe the culmination of their work.>>43599429"Do you have a book on how to please a dragon? I mean.... You know, if you want to hang out with them and not be burned.">The two exchange a look and walk off, telling Tali to wait.>They return and hand him a book, telling him that he can borrow it for as long as he needs....I'm not sure this is what I wanted.It would be awkward just giving it back, though...Alright, is there anything else I need to do here?I could go and see Maolin.Or check out this book, I guess.
>>43599365Nothing comes to mind, but as long as we're here, are there any books available that were written by the academy's teachers or faculty?I'm specifically thinking about the Headmistress, but we'd best be discreet about it.
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>43599611Open it and begin reading it aloud.Rolling for loudness.
>>43599611Check out that book. We'll be able to please Fael even though you're lacking in the size department.
>>43599611Don't peruse that too long Tali, you might turn even more deviant than you are now.
>>43599611GIVE IT BACK TALI IF LOLIDRAGON CATCHES YOU WITH THAT BOOK SHE WILL BE PISSED
>>43599611I think we'd better read it. Whatever you learn from that book, you're better off knowing that not knowing.Alternatively, >>43599620
>>43599611This might also be useful with her mother
>>43599611Go see Maolin, ask her about making a body.Dress up as a younger boy and offer your ass in exchange.
>>43599611You can read it later, let's see Maolin about an elf loving knight
>>43599611You still need to fertilize that mantis shrimp undyne's eggs, you know. You have to keep your promises.
>>43599611Nothing wrong with just taking a quick look.Y'know, just to see if there anything relative to our interests
>>43599611read it anyway.who knows, may have something relevant.
...>Tali opens the book just a bit. The illustrations make him immediately close it.>>43599620"Hey... Do you guys have any books written by the teachers here?""A bunch.""Every teacher has written at least one.""Any in particular you're looking for?""Hmm... Any by the leaders of the classes?""Of course.">She goes and fetches the books for him, 4 in total from the leaders of each class and the headmistress. Tali thanks them and sets the books on a table.>The one written by the headmistress is title The End of Seasons.>Tali opens to a random page: 'is a sure sign that they were behind the affair. The Ceer have always been there. Always in the background behind every major event, every major war. Now look at the land. It is riddled with teleportation crystals that they themselves created and none lead to their own homeland. We have fallen for what is perhaps the greatest trap in the world for now our economy and society requires these things to function. We are at their mercy. It is my hope that by continuing to read this book you will see what I see and perhaps avert the tragedy that I know is sure to happen.'Does the headmistress not like Ceer? She reminds me of Holly, actually...
>>43599810Read more into it. Is the Headmistress actually a master conspirator?Also, Tali. Everyone's racist, including you. If Holly knew you were and Elf, your ass would be kicked to the curve at a moment's notice.
>>43599810Read the first letter of each chapter Tali
>>43599810It's like Mass Effect, except the Ceer are really hot.
>>43599810What are the other books like? Any romances?
>>43599810Seems informative, It's probably worth reading.
>>43599810Share the book with ceera
>>43599810Well, she isn't wrong. I mean didn't cutie tell you that Ceer were as a species running low and that making others use their artifacts was one of the faster ways to repopulate?
>>43599810Draw lewd little doodles in the margins, depicting bedroom applications of a teleportation crystal.Or, I suppose if you don't like fun, just put that book down and peruse the other books. Even if the crazy conspiracy theory is 100% correct, knowing more about it won't really help you any.
>>43599810read the dragon book later. you need to know all you can to handle faela
>>43599810Okay, we should probably try to check out these books to read them in our personal time. See what the Headmistress is trying to say here. Keep in mind that, if she is some sort of conspirator, it's likely that whatever she's written in her book is an attempt to influence the reader's actions rather than reflecting her "true" motivations.Also look through the other books, so they don't assume you were looking specifically for her.Come to think of it, we don't really know a whole lot about your world's economy or politics. We know a lot of little tidbits, but that's mostly about the cultural and physical quirks of the various races.
>>43599810C'mon, ya prude. You didn't even give us a look!Besides, underneath all the smut and lewd imagery, there's probably some genuinely good info. Look for things on 'setting the mood.' For humans, that involves dim lights, pleasant smells, soothing music, and soft beds. A lack of strain on the senses. Looking up the same for dragons can lend you genuine insight on how to avoid irritating her accidentally.
>Holly's book seems to be a history of wars. Ryuko's is the rise and fall of the dragon riders. Elza's talks about Necromancy and practical applications.>Tali reads a bit more: 'Their artifacts are by far the most dangerous thing. A leech that draws the elemental nature out of us normal people and turns us into one of them in a slow, sickening process. I have seen the gradual transformation once before. To see someone slowly lose their mind... Ceer are clever. They made their artifacts useful and the change gradual. Most don't even seem to care.'I knew that bit... But I didn't know the headmistress knew this much abou-"Tali." A voice says, close to his ear. The elf jumps and sees it is Argen Sin. She adjusts her glasses. "I see you have begin to dig deeper into -it-.""... It?""Yes. -It-. The Headmistress's book is full of many errors about the Ceer and their physiology but it touches upon the great truth.""And that is..?""We are Doomed."
>>43600178Well, DUH! I mean, we could have told you that. Everyone dies, the use of and exposure to magic makes it all the more gruesome.
Rolled 2 (1d20)>>43600178That's impossible. We wouldn't plan on taking over the World and converting all the elementals into Ceer. Tell this Aelor nerd that she's crazy. You can trust US.
>>43600178quick, destroy her necklace!
>>43600178Pretend that her theories on Ceer giving birth through parasitic infestation are true, pretend that it's happening right now, watch her flip out.
>>43600178Why do you say "Doomed" instead of "doomed"?
>>43600178not really mang.
>>43600178Nah, we're fine, Vaisi isn't even turning into a Ceer anymore, unless she does because of those panties she got.
>>43600240you mean tali illusions a hundred worms with ceer faces burrowing out of his skin?
>>43600178She's probably right, the Ceer seem to have the world by the balls. Does she know of their Kissing addiction and reminding people of their old personality helping them fight it?
>>43600178Nah. We're not doomed. We just gotta get chummy with the Ceer. They're not that bad.
>>43600178The solution is simple.We fuck the Ceer.
>>43600178Actually, this style of assimilation is rarely successful at total world domination, as the affected display clear signs of transformation that they will rarely hide or even deny. As such , it is extremely to halt the spread of infection, especially since there is only one vector which can only affect one person at a time.Instead, it has the hallmarks of a last fallback, as the existence of a single artifact ensures the eventual creation of another Ceer even if all prior member of the species were rendered extinct.
>>43600178She says she's seen it happen once before. Who could be the person she's talking about? When was this book written? It must have been before Vaisi. But then why would she be so angry about you freeing her from her curse? Was she simply resentful that you managed to save someone when she couldn't?Maybe this book is meant to be a false argument. If it contains factual errors, it might be a way of making anti-Ceer conspiracy theories look stupid so that people won't take their actual conspiracy seriously. But then, she'd probably try to publish it under a pseudonym, wouldn't she?As for draining a person's elemental nature... that should have a relatively simple fix, wouldn't it? One could imbue another person with that element to reverse the process. There's probably more to it than that.
>>43600370There very well may not be anything more to it than that, we should probably try it.
>>43600178Doomed? Doooomed!Imagine the inevitable terrible end of all things good, and cry. Start small, trying to be strong, but quickly ramp up to bawling as you imagine all the good and wonderful people you know and love meeting horrible ends at the impending end of the world.Let's see how Argen comforts Tali after apparently upsetting her so fiercely.
"Doomed?""Doomed. Entropy will destroy us... The Ceer will turn us back to what we were. They will lay their eggs inside of us and we will be the vessel to a new age of Void. We are truly Doomed.""I... I don't think that's right. Ceer aren't that bad. I mean, they're pretty sweet once you get to know them. Also, they're weak to simple things like... Throwing stuff at them. Kissing. Other stuff, I guess.""They may seem weak but in reality they are... Wait, how do you know those weaknesses? Did... Did you kiss a Ceer?""W-what! No! Of course not!""By Alana you did! YOU'RE INFECTED! THEIR EGGS ARE IN YOUR FACE!""They're not-""DON'T TOUCH ME!">Argen Sin runs off, shoving several students out of the way as she does.>>43600296>>43600327If this is right, though... What does it mean? Are they trying to take over or just trying to not die? I remember Ceera had a cold and she seemed like she was on the verge of death the whole while. They're not physically very strong.>>43600370Yeah. Here she is all pissed off about me helping Vaisi but in this book alone she talks about how Ceer artifacts are horrible and the use of them is bad.Are all humans like this or what?>Tali puts the books in his bags.I can ask Ceera about it later.So, to Maolin or something else?
>>43600546>she knows about Tali's Ceer smooches
>>43600546Let's get you an artificial Elf girlfriend, knife ears. TO MAOLIN!
>>43600546Maolin it is my good knife ear!
>>43600546Go greet the fire baked and not gooey golem goil for us.
>>43600546be sure to mention the minigolems to her.
>>43600546so, uhDid we ever get ourselves checked for eggs?
>>43600637if tali was egged, he would be dead by now.
>>43600546>Are they trying to take over or just trying to not die?Does it really matter? They're not evil. They don't force people to use their artifacts. It's just a drawback that benefits them, and it's a well known one. They are a bit immoral, I suppose, that's it.Humans resent the loss of self. They're very individualistic. They would see such artifacts as inherently evil, even if you can easily use them without losing yourself. I mean, you can just stop, and there are clear warning signs. There is no indication it's addictive, even, outside of those people who cling to power at their own expense.Go to maolin!
>>43600667other then he one that is mind controlling, but if ceera is telling the truth, even ceer find mind control bad.
>>43600650I dunno, I still advocate like, a checkup.In the face and pants region.
>>43600546Whatever it is, they're definitely up to something more than just making more Ceer. They've got hidden magical mechanisms hidden all over the world; they must serve some sort of purpose. Our own Ceer friend has been reluctant to talk about some of the things his people have been doing, so there's surely a larger conspiracy at work here, one that might put him in danger.
>>43600546>Here she is all pissed off about me helping Vaisi but in this book alone she talks about how Ceer artifacts are horrible and the use of them is bad.Allow me to explain human logic.Vaisi used artifacts. Artifacts are bad because they turn you into Ceer. Ceer are bad because the made artifacts. Therefore, Vaisi is bad because she is associated with Ceer and/or things related to Ceer.In all likelihood she was so against helping Vaisi because iin her view Vaisi is a permanently tainted Ceer-in-waiting, and the correct way to handle her was to allow the transformation to complete, then rightiously kill the resulting Ceer for murdering Vaisi.
>>43600667No... I don't think they're evil either. Buuuut.... My opinion might be a bit biased.>Tali looks at the orb in his hand.I wonder about the whole not being addictive thing...>>43600773That's terrible, though. That logic is flawed, too. I mean... Did she think there was no way... No, she did think there was no way to save her, didn't she?Maybe she's tried to save someone before in a similar way only to have it fail. I want to ask her these questions but...>>43600574>>43600568>>43600597>Tali puts his thoughts aside and heads off to Maolin.------------------------------------------------------>Maolin is examining The Price of Life. She turns it over, runs a finger over the case, even scans it."Where did you get this?" She says."A dungeon run. Fought a Knight and this came out of them. The Knight was already half destroyed.""Do you know what this is?""It's a soul, right?">Maolin nods."The body, in my opinion, is naught but a vessel for holding this. The spark of life, given to us by the goddess Alana and augmented by the great Serin. This is, in my opinion, the most valuable kind of artifact in the world. For you see, without exception, it costs a life to make this. Always.What did you expect to achieve bringing this to me? Is there something you needed?"
>>43600793could you craft a body for it
>>43600793we, uh, figured it was in your wheelhouse?I mean what are WE going to do with a soul? Make something cool out of it.
>>43600761I know what the secret is. Keep this quiet, yeah?The Ceer Federal Government would reduce annual funding for infrastructure if the regional governments had excess at the end of the budget cycle. They avoided budget cuts by blowing the extra money on unnecessary portals.
>>43600793Yeah, a sexy, hot body.
>>43600793We have no idea what to do with it.
>>43600793Ask her for help in getting a body for that core.
>>43600793Say something about how all souls need bodies, even if they were a genocidal Knight.
>>43600793Can the artifact be turned into a mana generator?
We might see Alisya at some point about Argen's obvious insane paranoia. At least the part where eggs are laid on people via kissing.Only aelor reproduce like that
>>43600793It didn't seem right to just kill it. Can we make a body for it, without it being dangerous?
>>43600793>That logic is flawed, too.The fear of infiltration, of assimilation, of the creeping "Other" subverting what's safe and familiar and Normal is what spawns the greatest paranoia.So, you know, no pressure on the whole spying thing.
Rolled 7 (1d20)>>43600793let's get a respectable elf-like knight-ish looking body for it made so it can exist for other reasons than murder.
>>43600793One loli elf knight, please!>>43600732Well, too close of a checkup might be bad, what with the illusion and all. It's no poultry problem.But I guess we could ask someone later if there are simple magical means to do checks for eggs and parasites and such. Seems like a non-suspicious thing for a Petal student to inquire about.
>>43600834>>43600883Let's try and make it a sexy elf knight! That'd make it happy, right?
>>43600876>>43600793Speaking of spying, have you considered making an additional cover story if your illusion magic is for some reason compromised? I can only offer suggestions, of course, but one possible way of explaining you being male would be to say that while you are a boy, you always have wanted to be female, and that your illusion magic is a result of pursuing that dream. This would be a last resort, of course, as I doubt you want others to think that you want to be a girl unless there's no other option. Or maybe you do. I don't judge.
>>43600922But of course, we need to preserve at least some degree of it's previous knightly strength and stature.>brown ripped amazonian elf get
>>43600829>unnecessary portalsBlasphemy! All portals are necessary!
>>43600793It's used to make a Golem, she's the expert on Golems. Who else are we supposed to take it to?
>>43600953Actually that was pretty much going to be my fallback story in case I suffer a catastrophic glamour failure. I just gotta hope it works. Or at least buys me some time."Well... It seems wrong to just destroy it. Do you think you could make a body for it?""It would be simple, yes. However, you ask asking me to give a knight a body. A Knight that you fought. One that may want to kill you and everyone in this school. In my opinion, Tali, the cons outweigh the pros.""I'm... Fairly certain it won't try to kill us.""How can you be sure?""It didn't want to my last fight. It was destroyed by the others before I could tell them to stop. And I'm sure giving it a body back will help improve it's disposition towards me.">Maolin looks at The Price of Life again."... You leave me in a difficult position, Tali. My choices now are to destroy this or build it a body. Of the two destroying it would weigh more heavily on my conscious. There is a life in there, one that is locked away with no eyes to see and no ears to hear. But it is still alive... Very well. I will help you build this body. Tell me what kind you wish for me to make."
>>43600793she can teach us some golemcraft. how to make the bits and pieces and all that.we can then swap out the crotch sections of the mini golems for anatomically correct ones.
>>43600957What about a buff loli elf knight?
>>43601001PURE ELF WAIFUIt won't be made of clay, will it? We want a flesh golem.
>>43601001let's start with something simple so it can see the world again and communicate. then we can ask it what it wants.
>>43601001Loli elf. Give it a new lease on life
>>43600953That's a terrible excuse. Nobody would buy that for a second, and it would carry even less weight as a reason.Better excuse: Tali honestly thinks that he's a human girl. We, a mind-altering Ceer artifact, have been influencing his subconscious to project illusions to this effect and directed his attention away from acknowledging his skill with illusions. We have done this for shits and giggles. In the event of exposure, we take all blame and can hopefully guide events towards supporting a plan in which Tali's feminity is supported by the school itself for the sake of preventing mental trauma to an innocent.
>>43601001An iron elf.
>>43601001One like yours? Just ask if it prefers a "male" like design or "female" like one first.
>>43601001Something Adorable, but capable
>>43601001Dickgirl Elf.We know its wants and final desires.Its wants to fuck an elf.
>>43601001How about something relatively small so just in case? Similar to those tiny golems we stole, except different.
>>43601001Something tall, thin, and soft, with the potential for modifications if it would prefer a different body.
>>43601001Everything you want in a woman, Tali.Barring that, I'm sure everyone else has suitable suggestions.
>>43601001Loli elf. You can become its big brother! Wouldn't that be great?
>>43601037You know, that would be a great plan, but it involves revealing ourselves, which would result in us being taken away. And as much as I like to be the one guy with faith in Tali, there's pretty much no way that us being separated from him will be a good thing for either of us, as we need someone who won't reject what we say outright just as much as he needs an insane orb of wisdom.
>>43601001>Actually that was pretty much going to be my fallback story in case I suffer a catastrophic glamour failure. I just gotta hope it works. Or at least buys me some time.Maybe we could work your sister into this fantasy scenario. As in, say you were envious of her for getting to go here and wanted to see what her early life was like.>>43601037That would be a Bad End for both Tali and us. You saw what happened to the last Ceer-cursed student. If we hadn't thought of a way to save her, she'd be stuck in a hidden cell forever.
>>43601001Well... Maolin has a lot of experience with how constructs interact with the world. Perhaps you could get her input on what kind of body would be best for a nascent consciousness, or for a consciousness that was just pretty much an abandoned guard-dog for most of its long existence.
>>43601001An elf of some sort, definitely an elf. Oh, and with a fluffy tail, ideally.
>>43601001Loli elf, cute and soft.
>>43601001An effeminate elf, perhaps? It'd certainly fit with all the...things...we did to it...We're not good people, Tali.
>>43601037>>43601100So blame it on the orange orb instead.
>>43601001A well shaped, good looking elf woman with a foot long penis.
>>43601001Something small, but not small enough to fit into... orifices? Don't question this Tali, it's important.
>>43601001Something that's strong enough to live a normal life, but won't be too dangerous... how about a big human-sized stuffed animal? Like a bunny? Or a raccoon? What's your favorite animal, Tali?
>>43601156Why not mix the two plans? The wanting to be a girl is the first layer of cover story, while the second layer is that the orange orb has altered Tali's mind to make him want to be a girl.
>>43601158A well shaped, good looking elf woman with a long foot penis.Watch your step!
>>43601001Maybe start with something small so we can verify the no murder thing? Tiny Knight
>>43601126Fluffy tail is Fael's territory, she might not apprciate anyone infringing on it.Fluffy hait sounds nice though.
>>43601177We need to go deeper.The Sorting Eye is the one who talked the orange orb into it.Speaking of which, when's the last time we talked to that guy?
"Well, I was thinking something elf shaped? It really liked elves. It won't be made out of clay, will it?""It doesn't have to be.""How about flesh?">Maolin shakes her head."Flesh is too difficult to work with without it looking like an abomination. We would need a dead body for anything decent. Those are on short supply. I can work with other materials.""Metal? Plastic?""All acceptable. And you said elf form? That is good. Being a sentient golem is... It is a hard life. The closer we look to humans the better. But many prefer there is still a clear distinction between us and them. We can not look too close or we become disturbing.">Maolin takes some notes."How is this," She says as she shows him her work. "I can have several bodies built. One for basic communication, another to test the waters, so to speak, and a final one that will be it's real body when it can chime in on what it wants.""I think that works.""Good." She says with a nod. "Now all of this will take a bit of time but I will make it my top priority. Is there anything else?"
>>43601255>We would need a dead body for anything decent.It's time to kill your fellow classmates, knife ears. Alternatively, we could ask Solia for her corpse.Thank Maolin for accepting your request, and prepare yourself for DRAGON BONDING.
>>43601255you gave 99c some tiny golem employees.
>>43601255Nope, we good.>hug the brolem
>>43601255Make the eyes sharper and the eyebrows lower. Give them an air of smug and seduction.
>>43601255>The closer we look to humans the better. But many prefer there is still a clear distinction between us and them. We can not look too close or we become disturbing.Do the humans prefer it, or the golems?If the issue is looking too similar, then the facial area is probably the best place to avoid that. A simple face with large, expressive features is best.
>>43601255Can you give it hair later?
>>43601255Ask her if she wants to go see 99c's new employees.
>>43601255Well now you have to do her a favour, don't go stiffing her dude. Unless she likes it that way I guess...
>>43601255Not really, there were a couple of smaller golems guarding the treasure, they're with Ninety-Nine now.
>>43601255The knight was male, so making the body a boy is ideal.
Also it's been, I don't know how many threads since we've come up with any new spells for Tali, does anyone have any ideas for new stuff?
>>43601255Is there anything she wants to add? This is her idea baby too
>>43601347"Humans prefer it." She explains. "And it makes our lives easier because of that. So, the face will be relatively simple.""That's fine. Oh, also, I picked up a pair of golems at the dungeon and gave them to Ninety-Nine. I was wondering if you wanted to check on them.""Sure.">The two of them leave Root class and head off to the front of the school, Maolin placing the artifact inside of herself before going.>The front is packed with students, all surrounding where Ninety-Nine Copper usually is. He hears the golem's voices yelling directions at one another while Ninety-Nine handles merchandise. She seems very pleased with herself."That's them?" Maolin asks."Yeah... There weren't this many people here the other day.""There are never this many people here.">Ninety-Nine Copper waves at Tali, beckoning him from across the crowd.>He tries to approach her but the crowd is too thick.
>>43601652Assert your authority as co-manager of the ninety-nine copper store and force your way to the storefront.
>>43601652Just, you know, ask them to please move? It's not like they're a bunch of strangers. You know them well enough that they will do something that small, at the very least.
>>43601652....what...ask maolin for help
>>43601652Cast wide range comfy magic then fine them for loitering on store property.
>>43601652Something is amiss here. Remove this fake 99c and seduce the loli golems for answers.
>>43601652Assert some subtle illusion magic. Make everyone in your way think the person next to you is pushing just a bit more closely than they are. That should clear a path for you.What's with the sudden influx of customers? In a paranoid mood, I'll suggest some sort of mind control from the golems to lure in greedy adventurers. Ceera did say there was some sort of dark secret to the adventure portal; maybe this is part of it. But don't be too quick to judge, just be on your guard for any magical effects going on.
>>43601716Stop casting magic on people like that, it's irresponsible like fuck.>>43601652Just make your way to the golems like a reasonable elf.
>>43601652learn the ability all small students acquire through highschool.How to slide through crowds.
>Tali slowly makes his way through the crowd, pushing aside a few people gently and asking others to step aside. When one challenges him saying they were there first he reminds them that he is co-manager of this store, something Ninety-Nine confirms from afar.>When he reaches the front the small girl wraps her arms around him in a tight embrace."Tali! Look! We're selling so much now!""That's great, Ninety-Nine. How did this happen?""Everyone just... Showed up. And they started to buy things. Now the store has enough profit to purchase more items. Perhaps even a room inside. We... I... This is great.">Tali glances over at the golem.>She smiles at him.>He feels a sudden urge to buy things.
>>43601652Just kinda gently move people out of the way, it's not hard.
>>43601837>Room Inside.>99cent's store.>LEWD
>>43601837HMMM. THE GOLEM HAS MIND CONTROL. This is not good. After it wears off they're going to be angry.I think we should get Orange Orb's take on this. Then put a stop to it, in a way that won't cast blame on 99c.
>>43601837ignore it.put on a malicious grin, stare back at golem. then take the hats, she has lost the right to double hat.
>>43601837>still wearing both hatsTali its the hats, that's to source of the dolls power
>>43601837>>43601868Looks like we'll finally be able to come inside 99c's store.
>>43601837Resist!Also, question the double-hatted golem. Is she using the powers of capitalism for evil? Do we need to scold her?
>>43601837the golems clearly cast some kind of "BUY STUFF" spell. You need to make sure it doesn't go overboard.
>>43601837>He feels a sudden urge to buy things.Beware Tali, there may be some magic at work to loosen your wallet of its cash.But check out the stuff there if there's something interesting in stock.
>>43601837Take the Golem aside, so you don't accidentely 99's feelings, then firmly remind her that mind influencing magic is very frowned upon in the workplace. Back with Ninety-Nine, ask her what she would like to focus on with her shop.
>>43601837That's good. Tali, get your share of the profits, before anything else.Then go talk to the golems and see if you can figure out what they did.
>>43601837Yes. We absolutely need to buy more items.
>>43601837Definitely magicat work. Use your Detect Mana and Ward Magic spells.
>>43601837What is the golem doing, and why is she still wearing both of the hats.
she has brain control!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eH_sKOmkB14
>>43601928We gave them to her so they're hers now.
>>43601976Well she's losing one of them now. Let's give it back to the other golem, assuming the other one isn't doing anything wrong.
>Tali goes up to the double hatted golem and pulls her aside for a bit."Hey, what are you doing?""Former master, we are simply helping our new mistress to the best of our abilities.""With magic?""Of course." She says with a nod. "My sister and I can influence others. We have decided to use our powers to help Mistress Copper's business. As you can see it is doing well.""...">Tali takes her hat."W-what!? Former Master!? Have I done something wrong!? We are simply helping our new mistress!"
Rolled 1 (1d20)>>43602008Take away both hats, Tali. Or, if you'd rather, you can give them a different punishment~
>>43602008It's not good to control people's minds. Did she tell you to do that?
>>43602008"you were supposed to be the one that tells the truth. what is going to happen when they see whatever it is they bought and can't remember why they bought it?"
>>43602008Tell her mind-altering magic is immoral in a business environment. Also that she has to fess up now, and make it clear to the customers that it was their idea, not Ninety-Nine's.
>>43602008tell her that you might get her in trouble with business law enforcement agencies if she uses mind affecting magic in this way.So, like, turn it down a little.
>>43602008It is definitely helpful. It is also something that will definitely cause negative feelings from both the customers and your mistress when they learn that you have been using methods other than simple, non-magic persuasion to get people to buy her wares.
>>43602046hey, we can keep a lid on this. no need to publically out everyone.A one-time buying surge can be explained away as a fad, followed by some buyer's remorse. it's only really suspicious if it keeps happening, even though people keep regretting it.And if nobody regrets it, nobody will even notice.
>>43602008Maybe, but too much "help" can backfire. Some of these people might not take kindly when they come to and figure out what happened. Plus 99 is s great salesperson already, isn't using magic like saying you don't have faith in her ability?
>>43602008They should probably use a less direct method of making people want to buy stuff.
>>43602008At the very least ton it down a little bit, if you people catch wind that you're using magic to influence them to buy stuff, they'll spread the word and no one will want to come by again.Also your sister deserves to have her own hat back.
>>43602046They don't need to know, that would just complicate things.
>>43602065Well if 99 is willing to give out refunds then it'll be fine, I guess? I'm really worried that people will realize what happened and blame her.At the least, we can tell the golems that if anyone gets mad, they are to take the blame.
>>43602008The legality of mind magic in the work place is sketchy at best, with this is mind they are to pursue more legal avenues of increasing revenue.
>>43602120I just really want 99 to get some seed money and be able to buy more items.it might be best to defer to her on this, if it comes to a decision, as it's her store after all.
>>43602008One of the basic tenets of shopkeeping is that the customer is always right. This doesn't mean the customer is never wrong about anything, but that you should try treat them nicely and fairly. Ninety-Nine would be heart-broken if she learns you violated this tenet in the operation of the store she so dearly loves. Is that what you want to do to your new mistress?
>>43602008Too oblique, and too forceful. While I appreciate the business it has gotten so far, you must take more care in the future. In the future, try to be subtle in marketing techniques. Perhaps even non-magical, since this is a setting where detecting magic is fairly easy.
"....">Tali takes the other hat. The golem looks devastated."W-whyyyy!?""You can't do stuff like that! What if-" He lowers his voice. "What if others found out? They would hate Ninety-Nine and never come back here again! Mind control magic is bad, you hear me! Bad!""B-but we're only working with what we know best! This is all we have!""... I understand that but you should think before you do something like this or at least ask your Mistress. Ninety-Nine would be devastated if she found out that all her new popularity was because of this. Do you want that?""... No....""Then you have to find a way to advertise that isn't possibly very illegal. And if anyone finds out you two gotta fess up. We can't tell now otherwise there might be a mob.""Okay... But... Former Master... What can we do instead, then?"
>>43602185you both are VERY adorable.And 99's products aren't that bad.See about more traditional advertisement? And do you have any other magic powers other than the mind stuff?
>>43602185Go around campus finding out what sorts of things people would want to buy, then stock it?
>>43602185oh, and: if they only have mind control powers, how bout using them to just make people pay slightly more attention to the product on display?No actual "buy now" in there.
>>43602185For now, tone it down. It stands to reason that emanating things like calm and comfort to those who ARE shopping is perfectly legal, for example, even moreso when making a purchase. Additionally, even if you don't fess up to the mob, you do need to fess up to 99c. Lastly...here's a hat back. She has enough money to actually buy proper stock, now. However you got it, that's still a good thing. Doesn't cancel out the other stuff, but it's still a good thing.
>>43602185Conventional advertisement, sales, specialized stock, and simply taking notice of any problems others may be having and telling them about something sold at the shop that may be helpful
>>43602185use your cuteness and speaking ability to convince people to buy things. give her her hat back when you are done. they both are now one hats.
>>43602185Find customers and try to find out what they actually want to buy.
>>43602185Can they translate for 99c or offer translating services in general?
>>43602185Market Research & Target Audience research. Who are you selling to? What kind of goods sell the best? How can you advertise or improve goods to make them more appealing than similar products? Maybe even bundling services with goods? That sort of thing.
>>43602185Convince 99c to buy a third hat and whoever (99c included) is employee of the month gets the hat.
>>43602185>adorable tiny golem with heart-shaped pupils about to cryi want to help, but all i feel is the urge to bully more.
>>43602286Whoa now, I don't think it's that kind of place of business.
>>43602185Take stock of the merchandise, and advertise particular items to passing students if you think they could use them. In a nice way, not a "wow your bedhead is terrible, you should buy this comb to make yourself somewhat presentable' way.Also, depending on how your powers work, talk with Ninety-Nine and see about maybe offering your mind-altering abilities as a service? Affecting only the customer themselves, of course. Things like selling confidence boosts for those trying to work up the courage to confess to someone, or making people sleepier if they're having insomnia troubles. Assuming that's within your purview, of course, and if Ninety-Nine approves.>>43602265Supporting this. We should also probably redistribute the previous two hats to their original arrangement.
>>43602185They could hand out brochures listing products and sales. They could do any menial tasks that would help make the store nicer like cleaning, polishing, improving the signage...
>>43602311>original arrangement>not giving them each the opposite hat
Give the other hat back to her sis.Bigby's magical thunderdome.Two hats enter, one hat leaves
>>43602185The real question is-WHY DOES NONE OF 99C's SHIT SELL IN THE FIRST PLACE?Let's have a good look at her inventory.
>>43602185Just, be personable and help advertise? Pretty simple really.
>>43602185step one: get tasty cookiesstep two: be adorablestep three: sell overpriced tasty cookies door to door while looking adorable and like you need the money.
>>43602388It does though, she has had several customers, her shop just isn't very prominent.
>>43602458Well then have them work on advertising like people are saying.Cute little golembots will bring in plenty of profit, if the surge of people from this stunt doesn't cause word-of-mouth advertising anyways.
"It's pretty simple, really. Just advertise properly. Take stock of inventory. Find out what people really want. Offer specials, take care of the shop, be personable. Heck, after you tell Ninety-Nine your power I'm sure there's a way to market that.">Tali spends a few minutes going over the advice You gave to the little golems. They listen closely, nodding and murmuring to themselves at each point. Their magic has faded by now and the crowd has dwindled somewhat but still some people are buying things. When Tali ends his talk he gives each their hat back."Do you guys understand?">They both nod."Good. Now don't let me down. Be the best you can be! Make Ninety-Nine proud!">The moment he dismisses them they run off, the black dressed one trying to yell and get a person's attention, desperately asking them if they prefer black or white cloaks while the black suited one jumps in front of the store."Come one, come all to the Ninety-Nine Copper or More Store! A name so fine it rhymes! Get all you need right here!">A few of those wandering away are drawn back in by her words.>All throughout Ninety-Nine looks more pleased than Tali has ever seen her.---End of Chapter 28---

And so ends another thread. Thanks for reading everyone! As usual the start time for the next chapter will be up on twitter, hopefully sometime the coming weekend.>>43602552Sadly there is not enough time for that as we are only a few threads away from being pushed off the board. Next chapter I'll try and make sure there's time!Anyway, hope you all enjoyed it and thanks for taking the time to read!

>>43602780Sister is jealous
>>43602594>>43602780I'm thinking it would be a good idea to have an illustrated version of our spell list. Since spells are made by combining runes, it'd be handy to have a record of how our existing spells are put together.
