Finally, the great day of your wedding has come.No battle or trial or challenge has ever made you as nervous as you feel today. You've gone sleepless for the last three nights, and you just feel your body shaking anytime you lose, for even a moment, control of yourself."You're going to wear that mirror down." Karas groans, trying to get you to stop spinning around and sit down. You struggle for another few moments to make sure that you look perfect for the big day, even though you just checked five times.Your dress looks stunning, and you've been working on your hair, your makeup, your jewelry, every little detail for the last twelve or so hours. Everything must be perfect."Do I look alright?" You ask Karas, who has spent his last twelve hours in your room with you as well, trying to keep you from melting down. He's hiding his exasperation very well. He groans. Only a brother would put up with someone like this. "You look better than you've ever been." He reassures you. "I think we're keeping you locked in your room more to prevent everyone out there from falling in love with you at first sight, rather than just because it's a tradition that the bride should stay hidden before the wedding.""...I'm Tia's bride, but I'm also Amata's groom. How are we handling this, tradition-wise?""Don't make this insane wedding any more complicated than it already is.""What about the flowers?""Pyre Spark is in charge of the flowers. Relax." He stands in front of you, as if to discourage you from standing up restlessly again. "Millian's cooking, Radiant Starfall wanted to handle entertaining the guests before the main event, everything is set and ready to go. You just need to wait for midday."You take three deep breaths.He smiles. "...Mom and dad would be so happy if they could see you right now."(cont.)
You feel your strength leaving your body. "...I miss them."Karas doesn't reply, he just nods."...We'll find them. I promise. We'll take back our home."His expression softens. He sits down on the bed's edge nest to you and hugs you stiffly. "...I just hope they're alright." He whispers. "...I feel guilty, being here, while they..."There's really no possible answer you could give him right now. You try to cheer yourself up.By standing back up and going back to the mirror to make sure you-"Maka!""What?" You ask back innocently.You check your internal clock once more, probably the millionth time today.Ten more minutes to your planned appearance, according to Amata's schedule.You briefly wonder if letting a Chosen of Venus handle the planning for a wedding was the best or the worst idea ever.>Keep checking that mirror. Make sure EVERYTHING IS PERFECT.>Try to calm down. Breathe. Focus.>Distract yourself. Talk with Karas. (about?)>Other?

>>43686441No Anon, bad, bad anon. Don't talk about Gem right now, it's a day to be happy and think happy things. Like babies~
>>43686352>Distract yourself. Talk with Karas. (about?)Actually, who has shown up?I hope Flame did, we've been a bit distant with her since the fight
>>43686352>Try to calm down. Breathe. Focus.Also, I'm glad we get to have our wedding in thread 100, but was there an in-universe reason we're doing it before confirming the status of our parents?
>>43686480The Ebon DragonSince thread 1
>>43686352>Try to calm down. Breathe. Focus.
You force yourself to sit down. To breathe. To focus. Clear the mind. Calm down.No reason to be jittery. You're only marrying both your Lunar Mate, an adorable yet borderline psychopathic shapeshifter utterly obsessed with you, and a Sidereal probably centuries older than you who is also (apparently) a family friend and the queen of a country that is also a giant First Age flying fortress.Alright, that's a lot of reasons.One by one, the seconds and minutes tick by with unbearable slowness. Maybe if you just show up at the reception early, Amata won't be TOO mad that you messed up her incredibly detailed plan for your wedding.You groan, punch the pillow, and keep counting. Karas rolls his eyes, sits down, folds his arms, and just stares.Finally, after what must have been an eternity, the time comes.Karas stands up and opens the door for you. He has to actually help you walk out of the room without smacking your head into the doorframe."Geez. Where did my dependable older sister go?""Just for today, I'll have to depend on you." You smile, as he... basically drags you outside of your room.(cont.)
The reception and ceremony are in the underground focal room, the core of the Manse. On the way there, through the wide corridors and staircases leading you there, two walls of crowd cheer your passage.Amata invited everyone (as long as they were presentable, you suspect): the common people of Tianna and pearl and the surrounding villages throw petals at and in front of you, making you feel like you're walking through an indoor blizzard of colors. You dimly recognize the workers and engineers that have been around Pearl for the last month or so working on Golden Reach, soldiers in their parade clothes, the mercenaries, laborers, store-owners and common people, packed shoulder to shoulder to catch a glimpse of you in your wedding day.As you and Karas move past them, the crowd floods the corridors and follows you on your way down to the Focal room, trailing merry, colorful chaos along the way.The focal room always amazes you with how wide and open it feels despite being underground: It's brightly lit by crystals embedded in the walls and archways holding the domed ceiling up, and by sunlight filtering from the "eye", the hole at the very top of the dome, built in such a way to let a single shaft of sunlight all the way through the entire Manse, every day, at exactly noon.It's about one hour from now.(cont.)
Holy shit, it's fucking happening.
Session 100! Huzzah! Here's to 100 more!
At the center of the room, exactly where the light should strike, a circular plate of pure gold is embedded in the ground: the Manse's capstone and cornerstone. Every day at noon, when direct sunlight strikes it, that golden plate lifts up two meters in the air in a marvelous display of Essence.Just behind that slab, a small tower of wood, with stairs to climb it comfortably, has been built, ip to a height of three meters, and decorated in colorful ribbons, beautiful tribal talismans and incisions, and a plethora of flowers. The barbarian tribes' contribution to the wedding, it's the raised stage on which the officiant, Pyre Spark, will stand, just above where you'll be when the golden disc rises up at midday.All around that central area, you see chairs and tables, arranged symmetrically, for the buffet, but also for people to sit down and socialize or just rest. And there's a lot of them.But not nearly enough. The vast focal room is packed to the brim with people from all over Tianna and probably more. A small army of maids are bringing in food from upstairs to replenish the buffet table and desperately struggling to bring the empty plate back out to the kitchens, where, you imagine, Millian must be hard at work.You're still trying to catch your bearings, when, from somewhere inside the crowd, you see a sudden flash of silver light, then someone jumping, sprouting wings in mid-air, and lunging at you in a straight dive.You just barely brace yourself for impact before Tia slams into you with the force of a hurricane.
"MAKAAAAA!" She cries, lifting and squeezing you. "They wouldn't let me see you!"Talon is limping just behind her, with signs of very recent wounds, cuts, bruises that hadn't had time to heal yet despite the infamous speed of Lunar regeneration. "She was hard to restrain." he just comments, barely audible above the din of the crowd, as Tia leans in for a kiss.>Kiss her.>Not now! We have to do things in the right order today, or Amata will get mad.>(other?)
>>43686712>>Not now! We have to do things in the right order today, or Amata will get mad.
>>43686712>Not now! We have to do things in the right order today, or Amata will get mad.Do not anger the Chosen of Serenity on their wedding day.
>>43686712>Not now! We have to do things in the right order today, or Amata will get mad.Stay girl, everything will be perfect soon.What happened to Talon? A fight?
>>43686712>Kiss her.Talon did a good job.
>>43686712>Not now! We have to do things in the right order today, or Amata will get mad.
>>43686725Trying to restrain Tia on her wedding day.
>>43686484The best way to send there the scout team is with a spell that Aexel is still learning.>>43686725He probably tried to keep Tia from breaking into your room and wreck Amata's carefully-laid-out wedding planning.Tia, being Tia, probably broke both his arms and legs trying to get past him.
>>43686712Are the Abyssals around?Might be hard on them being inside the manse
>>43686773Anshin'in-San best Yozi
"Not now! We have to do things in the right order today, or Amata will get mad." You wink at her, while at the same time trying to hold her still and struggling against her monstrous strength. Hard to do that while still looking cool but you manage."Come ooooon!" She complains. "Not you too.""It's how thing will have to work out." You reply, almost feeling sorry for her. "Come on. Be patient now. I'll make it worth the wait." You suggest in a whisper. "After all, you won the bet, didn't you?"You... pretty much let her win. If you REALLY tried to win, she wouldn't have lasted ten seconds. You don't know if she realizes that or if she genuinely thinks she won.Still, no sense rubbing it in her face. Let her be happy.Fortunately, after hearing your promise, she lets go of you. You can read the fantasies going through her mind on her face. She's clearly thinking about doing this and that to you."That's right, you get one week." You remind her, adding fuel to the fire of her imagination.You realize that you never agreed on WHICH week was going to be her "prize".This coming week, during your honeymoon trip to the Neck, you'll also be busy with Mikahil's plan to take it over to your side, and also you'll have to finish training the Steelshard Mercenaries, who will be coming with you as an escort. You don't think these things are going to keep you busy for days, however.Or, you could offer her the week after your honeymoon. It's maybe less romantic, but a lot more practical. On the plus side, on that week you'll probably be 100% free. On the minus, Tia is bad at waiting.>Next week, as a prize for the bet, I'll do anything you ask me to, while I'm free and we're together. But keep in mind, i might be a bit busy myself>The honeymoon will probably be a bit of a busy time for me, so wouldn't it be better if your prize were the week right after that?>Let her decide.
>>43686764No. They apologize but yeah, they're not walking into a level 5 Solar manse.They sent you a box of chocolates and some flowers.Unfortunately the flowers wilted somewhere along the way.
>>43686837>The honeymoon will probably be a bit of a busy time for me, so wouldn't it be better if your prize were the week right after that?On the brightside we can go back to sexing on a regular schedule
>>43686837>Let her decide.
>>43686848Still, I bet those chocolates are to die for.
>>43686837>Let her decide.But remind her that we won't be able to focus on Just her if she chooses next week.
>>43686858God damn it Carlos
>>43686837>Let her decide.We can extend the trip by a week if needed.
Since Tia is the one who knows what the surprise is, it's better to let her decide when/how to collect her prize.
>>43686837>Let her decide.Though I would strongly suggest the week after the honeymoon if she really wants us able to do whatever she wants.
>>43686837I'd honestly rather have it the week after since the Honeymoon is also for Amata, wouldn't be all that fair to give ourselves to Tia and leave her out too. Not that I think Tia will ignore her, but it's the symbolism of it.
>>43686934If Tia even gets in the same bed as Amata, she will have to let Amata have her fun too. Sidereal bullshitery will make sure even Tia is too exhausted to fuck back.
>>43686958It's not just about the sex, it's about everyone enjoying themselves and being together with our new husband and wife, the honeymoon should be about all of us equally and Tia's reward should be all about her.
>>43687007I like this line of thought.
"...Would you rather have the honeymoon week as your prize, or next week when we'll be back home?" You ask. "Keep in mind that during the Honeymoon I'll still be busy four hours a day to finish the training of the Steelshards, plus I'll be trying to win over the Neck as an ally, so I might be busy sometimes...""A promise is a promise." She replies. "I'll take the honeymoon. I'll leave you time to do your silly things. All your free time... will be mine And... you'll like my surprise.""That seems hardly fair." Replies Amata, who sneaked up on you two, or maybe just materialized out of thin air. "What about me? Don't I get my Maka time during the honeymoon?"Tia gives her a mildly annoyed look. You decide to cut in. "Ladies. Ladies. Please. Not to be immodest but I'm fairly confident I can handle you both." You boast.Tia and Amata exchange an unconvinced glance."We both know that's not true." The Sidereal replies. "Still, a promise IS a promise, and unlike Tia I can be patient. I think I'll just wait the right time to strike." She grins."I'll let you have your Maka time," Tia concedes, "if once we get back from the honeymoon I get to keep her for three extra days.""Deal." they shake on it."Um... girls?" You point out. "I'm right here. Are you extending my punishment for losing the bet?""Tia's right." Amata turns around, still shaking her hand cheerfully. "Your bet was for seven days, but since during those seven days there'll be hours when you won't be able to uphold it, it's only fair to extend the time limit by recovering those hours afterwards.""...Remind me to never sign a written contract or anything with your name on it after today." You groan, sitting down on a chair.(cont.)
In the background, cheerful music starts blaring, followed by a singing voice and a lightshow. Radiant is starting a musical number, it seems. The food keeps coming. You see Silk, all proud and haughty (and a bit bigger and shinier than you remember her) who, for some reason, is surrounded by maids. At a table, Samiel, Irene and Valeriana (look who's here!) are sitting down and talking, while eating. It seems to be quite the discussion.Pyre Spark is probably somewhere backstage, getting ready. In the crowd, you even spot Shining Jewel (with difficulty) together with Yaraon, surrounded by a crowd of Pearl citizens. Moray Darktide is enjoying a drink in a rather isolated corner of the venue, and you're surprised to see him here at all. You were hoping to see Flame as well, but she's apparently nowhere to be seen. Your head spins as you take in the crowd bit by bit. Nearly everyone is here. >Go and talk with someone (who?)>Stay with Tia and Amata.
>>43687109>go talk to JewelOur own cute little god
>>43687109>Go and talk with someone (Valeriana)She made it!
>>43687109>Go and talk with someone (Samiel, Irene and Valeriana)Also next time we make a bet with Tia we're totally winning, can't let her get too full of herself.
>>43687109>Stay with Tia and Amata.Is Amata wearing her wedding dress? Tell her she looks beautiful
>>43687179Like five seconds into the bet for sure
>>43687147Seconding! I've missed her.>You see Silk, all proud and haughty (and a bit bigger and shinier than you remember her) who, for some reason, is surrounded by maids.Our 'pet' sure is getting full of herself.
>>43687223Well she is a five dot familiar now, she's allowed to be a little smug.Legendary Familiar Silk when?
After enjoying Tia and Amata's banter for a little longer, you excuse yourself for a second and wade through the crowd, finally reaching the table at which Samiel, Irene and Valeriana are sitting.You see several empty plates, several empty mugs and glasses, and several maps, drawings and schematics on the table, on paper or parchment or written on napkins.These people."Maka!" Valeriana stands up wobbingly, clearly having had one too many drinks. "Maka, I'm so happy for you! Sorry I haven't been around for you. I'm a terrible friend."She leans in for a hug but nearly trips and you have to help her along the way. She reeks of wine, but you guess she deserved her off time.In these last weeks, you've never seen anyone work harder and more earnestly than her."It's okay. You were busy. You have nothing to apologize for." You sit down with them. "So, what other evil plan are you three drafting here?""Talking about warstriders and stuff." Samiel grins. "The plan is to improve the dragonkaiser, and use it as a prototype for other similar units.""We just have to decide how to design it." Irene seems also quite smug as she looks at you. From the looks of the table she must have been drinking more than the other two combined, yet she looks perfectly sober. "What do you think, Maka? Do you see yourself piloting a Warstrider?">That sounds awesome.>It's not my style. Why not design one for Karas instead?>(Other?)
>>43687277>It's not my style. Why not design one for Karas instead?Maka wants to be seen when she fights, she'll leave big things and big armor to our combat monsters
>>43687277Oh she isn't mad or grumpy at all, I'm glad.
>>43687277>>That sounds awesome.
>>43687223I think her maids are getting full of herself
>>43687277>>It's not my style. Why not design one for Karas instead?>I know anything you'll do will be awesome
>>43687277If we could use our Charms with it, that'd be pretty sweet. A towering titan of battle that looks strangle sexy.Still, if it comes down to it, I think >It's not my style. Why not design one for Karas instead?is a better choiceC-can we choose both?
>>43687336>>43687223>"Maka! I'm a ladies' fairy, now"... Damn. I wonder if Amata would marry nobles' daughters to Silk, if the demand to be part of the royal household.
>>43687365>A towering titan of battle that looks strangle sexy.Aphrodite?
>>43687277>That sounds awesome.Wish I could have found a better image than this one.
>>43687277>That sounds awesome.Who doesn't want to pilot a Giant Kung Fu Robot? Is there ever any reason NOT to pilot a Giant Kung Fu Robot?
>>43687365>C-can we choose both?This is Exalted, and Valeriana is an amazing engineer. We could probably, but it'll have consequences
>>43687277>That sounds awesome.
Or something more Gundam if we want
>>43687413We could probably do both in the long run, but Warstriders are something you don't want to half-ass.Especially Royal Warstriders
>>43687403Here, have a pic of ALL THE ROBOTS
>>43687413In this case the consequences are most likely it'll take a long time
>>43687365We'd need our Warstrider to also be a mobile idol platform
>>43687438>Royal WarstridersDon't those take an entire year to make, at minimum, even with the required Furst Age facilities?
>>43687277>It's not my style. Why not design one for Karas instead?
>>43687461Resources that could be spent on something else.Make a modular Warstrider, with a set of equipment tailored for Maka and another for Karas. They can share the Warstrider.
>>43687277Warstriders are cool and all, but Karas needs his Artifact Heavy Plate before all that
>>43687510Aldebaran is the Best Golden Saint.
>>43687509I'd really rather have a stronger dedicated Warstrider for Karas than a weaker one for both of us, assuming making it modular would mess with it's overall strength.
"That sounds awesome. But why not design one for Karas as well?" You reply."We might." Irene replies. "Like with a good suit of custom-made armor, designing a Warstrider starts with the person inside. We're still in the early planning phase with this idea, though... but we have enough parts to build one complete Warstrider.""Until we start making parts on our own." Valeriana points out."Yeah, but that might take a while." Samiel takes a large wooden box from under his chair and slams it on the table."...What's that?" You ask."Something our two ladies here DID have the time to put together, despite all the other work piling up." He explains with a grin. "I was mostly just moral support, though.""You helped out." Irene reaffirms. "Anyway, a wedding means wedding gifts, right?"Caught by surprise by their delivery, you're overwhelmed for a second."Come on!" Valeriana cheers you on chugging another half glass of wine. "Open it now!"You clip the box open, finding a pair of-"WAIT! These are my smashfists and combat boots! When did you-""Wrooong!" Valeriana punches you in the shoulder. "These are your NEW smashfists and combat boots!"Samiel giggles. "We had Radiant steal them and then worked to upgrade them with the Orichalcum made from the spare gold we found in the Titan."The brawling aids are quite bigger and sturdier-looking than your old set of gauntlets and boots, in fact, which had been made in something of a shoestring Orichalcum budget. These ones, on the other hand, look massive, heavy, powerful. It takes you a while to attune with them, but they make you feel like you could punch a mountain in half with a kick.(cont.)
>>43687515>>43687519>>43687403>>43687412>>43687325It sounds awesome, but giving a Mech to Maka shouldn't be a priority.Let's have our general have the giant robot
>>43687558>"Wrooong!" Valeriana punches you in the shoulder. "These are your NEW smashfists and combat boots!">Samiel giggles. "We had Radiant steal them and then worked to upgrade them with the Orichalcum made from the spare gold we found in the Titan."Awww...
>>43687545Honestly, a mech for Karas isn't going to be that different from one made for Maka. They both have the same control system and movement range the only big difference is that Maka fights with her fists and Karas uses a sword.Just switch the Warstrider-sized sword for Warstrider-sized gauntlets and adjust the cockpit harness to account for Maka's Makas and the Warstrider is ready for her to use.That is, unless there are some Essence Shenanigans to prevent this kind of thing.
>>43687558>Orichalcum made from the spare gold we found in the Titan.>MadeDid Flame help with this, too?
>>43687625Karas has more combat and piloting Charms, I think
>>43687647You do need a volcano to purify the gold, along with plenty of sunlight.
>>43687558Still think that the boots are too bulky for Maka's style in that picture and that her breasts are too small.>>43687625I think it's more of an aesthetic thing. Something as grand as a warstrider should be personalized to the exalt piloting it, especially Noble/Royal Warstriders.
>>43687558>wedding presentsFuck yes, might be harder to walk around with the now. Oh well, I guess we can either pick up the weapon Elsewhere charm or just not have them on all the time.
"Wow. I... I don't know what to say."Valeriana grins. "Thank you is fine.""Thank you."She puts an arm around your neck and pulls you closer, and whispers in your ear: "Listen. We need to talk about the Titan.""...Yes?" You don't like where this is going."I heard you saw my old drawings.""The ones with the huge tower that was meant to beat the Penitent of the Lap in height?""You know why I designed that?" She asks, almost threateningly."...I can imagine." You try and keep calm. Drunk as she is, you're afraid to say something wrong right now. "You want to build something amazing. Something that will shock Creation.""Eeexactly." She pokes your chest aggressively. "I have the power now. I'm a goddamn Exalted. I want to prove to everyone and to myself that I can do it." She sighs. "But the Titan's gonna fly again one day? Then all that plans are trash. I need something else.""...I'm sorry. But I promised to Flame that she'd fly again.""I understand, girl. I understand." She shakes you a bit. "But I don't want it to be the damn Titan. The Titan is something other people made. And it's amazing. But I don't want to add to it. I don't want to be just someone who fixes stuff people better than me made a long time ago. I want to make my own stuff. Better. Faster. Bigger. More awesome.""So you don't care about the Titan at all?""I want to do something with it... something that it won't, something that people won't say, oh, come on, it's just a coat of paint on an old thing. I want people to be impressed of what *I* did, not sthose... those assholes that came before." She makes a vague gesture that probably is her pointing at the First Age in general, but she only ends up pointing at the buffet table."So what are you going to do?"(cont.)
>>43687667>and that her breasts are too smallThat was meant to be in spoiler tags to show it was a joke.
>>43687625>the only big difference is that Maka fights with her fists and Karas uses a sword.That be a pretty big difference in designing it, Maka's would want to be sturdy and all around tougher so she could stay up in a motherfuckers grill, while Karas' would want more mobility and flexibility to help bring out everything in his swording.
>>43687691I like drunk Val
>>43687691Val is really ambitious, but that's cute.She really is a good girl.
She pokes you in the chest again. "Here's what I'll do. And hear me well, Maka. We're friends, we're pals, we're circlemates, but I'm doing this even if you don't want it. You owe me. And you'll help me.""You haven't explained it yet." You smile."Alright. So we fill up the internal- the inside of the Titan, the rooms and whatnot. We don't use that, and we need to make it heavier to stabilize it. We leave just maintenance passages.""...Alright." You're following this far. "Then what?"She shrugs. "Something. I build something cool at the top of the volcano or something. So it'll be, like, a flying island with a giant... thing at the middle.""You haven't thought things through a lot yet, have you?"She takes another sip. "I'm a genius. I'll figure something out.">I'll have to know what you're planning before I help.>Whatever crazy thing you're going to do, count me in.>(Other?)Combined with:>I have something else to ask you three.>Go speak with someone else (who?)>Wait for noon.
>>43687786getting a bit first age solar on us here, I feel, with her"I want to build something just because I can."Soon, we'll have "I want to fuck that mountain, just because I can"
>>43687691Is this the first time we've seen Samiel's dress uniform?>>43687786>>Whatever crazy thing you're going to do, count me in.I mean, we're already planning on crashing the economy of the west and maybe becoming Queen of all Creation, what's a giant building in comparison?>Go speak with someone else (Silk)What's up with all the maids?
>>43687786>I'll have to know what you're planning before I help.I don't mind the plan to do it so long as the thing in the middle is, you know, not really dumb. I want to help her, she's done a lot for us, so when you start thinking of what to build come talk to us and we'll help>>I have something else to ask you three.Ask Sammy if Flame is here
>>43687786>Whatever crazy thing you're going to do, count me in.As long as it's not completely useless and won't like bankrupt out kingdom
>>43687786>>Whatever crazy thing you're going to do, count me in.>Go speak with someone else (jewel)
>>43687786>"That is the craziest load of bullshit I've ever heard. Let's do it.">"We've got to talk with Flame about that, though."Maybe instead of turning the Titan into a flying island we could make it into an enormous ship? Turn the Murderfortress into a Murderairship?
>>43687786>I have something else to ask you three.>Go speak with someone else (Jewel)Ask Samiel about Flame and then let's go talk to Jewel
>>43687786>Whatever crazy thing you're going to do, count me in.>I have something else to ask you three.Ask Samiel if he's talked to Flame since the war.
>>43687843>Kojima no longer at Konami>ZOE3 never be made
>>43687919Why did you have to remind me?Just... why?
>>43687786>Whatever crazy thing you're going to do, count me in.Oh, man. I can't wait to start bouncing around ideas for upgrading a TITAN.>>43687906I like this.
>>43687558What kind of upgrade did they get?Artifact 3?I hope we maxed out the parry on it, my dream of turning Maka into the meat tankiest of Exalts needs that.
You reassure Valeriana that whatever she's planning, you'll help (silently hoping she's not going to go TOO crazy), and spend a few more minutes chatting with the three. Unfortunately it seems that Samiel hasn't seen Flame since. "I think she just needs time. When she's ready to talk again, she'll show up." Is his opinion.After a while, you say goodbye and head up to Yaraon and Jewel, who are more or less surrounded by Pearl citizens who seized up the rare chance of being able to personally talk to their local gods.Predictably, they both look annoyed and bored out of their skulls. As soon as you shop up, Yaraon picks up Jewel, puts and arm around you, and goes "Oh, look who's here! Exalted Maka! We have very important things to discuss, so I'll be right back! Apologies!" And basically shuffles you away from the crowd."...Thanks for saving me." He sighs."A pleasure." You smile and shrug. "How are things going.""Actually, really well. They're setting up temples and worship of me in the countryside, and I've already found some people for my clergy. So... yeah, it's what I was hoping for when we got rid of the Fae." He beams. "It's just... I'm a country god. I'm not really... good with this kind of crowds.""What about you?" You ask Jewel.He shrugs. "Same as dad." He replies, succinctly.As wordy as always."Is the city growing up fine?"A hint of a smile passes over his face. "Yes, without many problems.">I wanted to ask you something specific (what?)>Go and talk with someone else (who?)>Wait for noon.
>>43688023>I wanted to ask you something specific (what?)Has Jewel given any thought to his own Cult?It'd be weird for a city god not to have one
>>43688023>How are you two dealing with Flame, now that the titan is not a secret anymore?
>>43688023+1 >>43688065, that's a relationship I'm really curious about.
>>43688023>>How are you two dealing with Flame, now that the titan is not a secret anymore?>Have you thought of your own cult, Jewel?
>Maka is finally marrying>Tia won the bet>Prize's period was extended>new design for the artifacts >Makastrider soon(tm)>Val is going to do something even grander than the tower>Maka makasThis whole thread. I don't know how to deal with all this hype.
>>43688125Exalted Quest #100 motherfucker
>>43688125>Prize's period was extendedI forgot to post this earlier.
>>43688023Ask them if they can go to yu-shan, or if they know anyone there?And mention the small shadowland.
>>43688162>And mention the small shadowland.We should do something about that, probably not like make it go away since we need it to go meet our Abyssals, but could we like put a gate or entrance over it so it doesn't spread or accidentally eat people?
>>43688189There's already a fence to keep people out, as was mentioned in the timeskip.
"So... you're working on your own cult, Jewel?""Yes.""...and?""It's coming along." He rolls his eyes with mild annoyance. "I'm patient. Pearl will grow. Give it time."You slowly nod. "...You see, I was wondering... how do the two of you deal with Flame now? I mean... technically she's your mother? Or not? Was that only Dancing Smoke?""Family ties are not significant for gods." He explains. "Flame is different from Smoke, but not entirely. Still, it seems she wants to stay alone now. Maybe later we'll see her. She is the goddess of the entire island of Tianna in a way."Yaraon nods affirmatively. "We don't really work like a human family, so don't worry too much about it." He reassures you."Another thing I was wondering... Have you two ever been to Yu Shan?"Jewel gives you a "really?" look. Yaraon, however, simply answers: "...Well, no. I'm a small terrestrial god, I never had the chance. Maybe I will once the western plains of Tianna are developed and I get a lot more worship.""Oh, speaking of the plains, was the shadowland fenced like the Abyssals said it would be?""It is. It should be fairly safe." He nods.>Ask about something else (what?)>Go and talk with someone else (who?)>Wait for noon.
>>43688266Hugs and kisses.Go see the common people and thank them for coming.
>Go speak with someone else (Silk)
>>43688266>>Go and talk with someone else (who?)Silk
>>43688266>Go and talk with someone else (who?)Let's go see what's up with Silk and the meidos>>43688263I had been thinking more of a solid thing, like a sort of not-manse or something, but if it's already safe then that's fine
>>43688266>Jewel gives you a "really?" look.Jewel, you're too slow. Stop being lazy and get to it, you should have had a harem of nymphs by now.
>>43688301>you should have had a harem of nymphs by now>urban nymphsDamn. They would be sexy as hell.We must help him get them
>>43688322>hoodlum nymphs for the poor parts>lady-like nymphs for the posh parts>business nymphs for the economic districts
>>43688266>Go and talk with someone else (Silk)
>>43687558>punch a mountain in half with a kick.>punch with a kickThat's pretty impressive all on its own.
>>43688364>>43688322I like how you think, anons.
>>43688404Shouldn't minor gods like them have some mortal priestesses at most?
After some extra chatter with the two gods, you leave them back to their duties and walk to see Silk, who, of course, launches herself straight at you with clearly extremely impure intentions as soon as she detects your presence.Not wanting her to ruin your wedding dress completely, you, of course, grab a table and use it as a shield, letting her splatter herself all over it."You're a lot heavier than I remember." You realize, putting the table down."It's all thanks to you, my dear." The Fae licks her lips curving sinuously around you. She is, in fact, bigger, and seems... thicker. the goolike stuff that makes up her body feels stronger, denser, more opaque and less see-through. "I could eat a lot of Essence...""I hope you put it to good use and didn't get any silly ideas." You mumble in response, before realizing what exactly is wrong with the maids clustered all around her.They're all more or less identical. Their body types are different, but they have the same face and features. They seem human at a first glance, but all have light purple hair and eyes, slightly pointy ears, and small dark horns on their heads. Their uniforms are not quite the fairly "normal" maid uniform of Amata's servants, but a far more revealing version. All of them have perfect skin and hair and are clearly, to some degree, "unreal" at a closer examination. You sigh. "You made an army of sexy maids in fetish outfits."She rubs her hands. "When you gave me back my Sword, I though I should be making an army. I wasn't too sure on how to make one, since I never had one of my own. So I decided to model them on your general, and-""Wait. My general?""Yes, that little girl who follows you around and makes all that stuff you eat. She bosses around the other humans with these "maid" dresses, and they all work for you, and she's one of the few people who I've seen talking back at you."(cont.)
>>43688454Everyone needs mortal priestesses, only mortals can pray to Gods and have any effect
>>43688454I don't know how are the nymphs in the Exalted setting (or even if there is), but I'm sure our city god is cute, sexy and talented enough to woo them
>>43688470That is a completely adorable misunderstanding, though I wonder if Regis will be offended none are modeled after him when he hears the explanation.
>>43688470>ErubetieOh yes, this is a good upgrade.
>>43688470>she's one of the few people who I've seen talking back at you.There is logic in that.
>>43688470>"Yes, that little girl who follows you around and makes all that stuff you eat. She bosses around the other humans with these "maid" dresses, and they all work for you, and she's one of the few people who I've seen talking back at you."Yes, yes, this is accurate and absolutely correct.
>>43688482but that's wrong, unless we're counting exalted and dragon kings as mortals.
>>43688485they're probably some kind of minor elementals.
>>43688470>So I decided to model them on your general, and-">"Wait. My general?">"Yes, that little girl who follows you around and makes all that stuff you eat. She bosses around the other humans with these "maid" dresses, and they all work for you, and she's one of the few people who I've seen talking back at you."I love you, EF and Silk
>>43688454Jewel is Pearl's city god. He's not going to be a minor for long.>>43688470Can't argue with that logic.
>>43688495If Erubetie is what she looks like as a 5 dot familiar, I wonder what she'll look like when she finally hits Legendary status a century or so down the line.
So, those are hobgoblin maid soldiers?
>>43688512Well to be accurate it's anyone with a mortal soul so yes they count, but like other Gods, elementals, Fae, demons, those things don't.
>>43688526still, you'd probably need to be really important to have a group of other spirits directly attending you.
>>43688470>Upgraded Silk>Hobgobling Maid Army>Maid General MillianOh, I know how to deal with this.
>>43688554Jewel will be a big deal. Trust me on this, we all know he is going to be big.
>>43688554Not so much. Like, our Water Court serves a boss, who is important, but probably not as important as Yaraon in the cosmic scale
>>43688470One one hand, this is adorable. On the other, you did kinda grant my request to let me design Silk's army a while back and this wasn't it. So I'm kinda annoyed.
>>43688125>>43688579What is this?
>>43688593hmm, that's normal for elementals though, gods don't really form courts like that, right?
>>43688589The nymhs will make him big, if they manage to seduce him.
>>43688594What did you had in ming?>>43688606I don't know. It seems logical to me a powerful local god presides over the other other ones.
>>43688630He is the first fanfic writer. He asked to design Silk's army on EF's ask.A looooong time ago, now. The QM likely forgot.
"...Millian is not my gener-""I decided to improve a bit on the base model, but here they are. I heard it's your tradition to offer a gift in this day, so here you go.""...What do you mean?""Well, you can use them." She suggest, waggling her eyebrows.You notice there's quite a lot of them all around, in fact, and most of them are working as, well, actual maids at the buffet table. Most of the guests seem to enjoy their skimpy outfits, but they're still working normally."...Is Millian using them?""Well, they are naturally recognizing her as their superior. It's natural." Silk shrugs. "They'll still do anything I or you say."You nodThen she leans in closer and wags her eyebrows at you even harder. "Eeeeeeeeverything.""I get it." You push her face away trying not to get stuck inside her."Just don't get them too far from my room, they all need to regenerate in there once a day or they fall apart in Creation.""So basically they have to stay in Pearl?""More or less." She nods. "If I come along with them, they can be a proper army and stay out for longer, but normally, yeah."...Just how many of them are there?" You wonder, after losing count.""Oh, I can just make them in my room, and reabsorb them when I'm done. Right now there's about a hundred out here working, and two thousand or so in my room standing by, but I can make a lot more." She leans in even closer. "A lot more, an army of them at your complete disposal, to be used with reckless abandon in the throes of your inexhaustible lust, one after another, tossed aside when each of them breaks..." She starts trembling and licking her lips, breathing heavily...(cont.)
>>43688657Down girl Try not to think about that....
>>43688657>A lot more, an army of them at your complete disposal, to be used with reckless abandon in the throes of your inexhaustible lust, one after another, tossed aside when each of them breaks...Sounding pretty First Age Maka there, Silk.
>>43688657>>43688668I wonder if she can make butlers, too...
>>43688657>A lot more, an army of them at your complete disposal, to be used with reckless abandon in the throes of your inexhaustible lust, one after another, tossed aside when each of them breaks...Maybe later, I don't think Amata had a public orgy on the wedding schedule.
>>43688689We could probably ask her to make some modifications
>>43688657>A lot more, an army of them at your complete disposal, to be used with reckless abandon in the throes of your inexhaustible lust, one after another, tossed aside when each of them breaks...Can we make them look like us? In case Tia doesn't think to ask.
>>43688689Maka getting gangbanged by faceless faerie flunkies when?
Then there's a loud, wet THWACK noise as Amata's folding chair connects with and splatters Silk's head."She gets it." The Sidereal sighs, tossing the chair aside, and offering you a hand. Tia is beside her, nearly dancing with excitement. "...It's almost time.">There's one last thing I need to do before walking up to the altar. (what?)>Let's go.
>>43688698>>43688715Down Great Curse, down boy
>>43688657O-oh my, Silk~Our pet is the best per.>>43688685Not. They're not real.
>>43688657>A lot more, an army of them at your complete disposal, to be used with reckless abandon in the throes of your inexhaustible lust, one after another, tossed aside when each of them breaks...I'm not necessarily against that, but we should do it in a place where we aren't likely to drag random mortals into it. No need to cause a repeat of what happened at the festival.
>>43688729>>Let's go.The time is nigh
>>43688729>Let's go.Onwards to marriage
>>43688729>Talk to the Ebon Dragon's representative.I hope the Yozi are enjoying this as well.
>>43688729>>Let's go.It's happening.We can thanks people for coming afterward
>>43688729>Let's go.>>43688745yeah, we should do it in Silk's realm or maybe in our bedroom, assuming it's big enough for it (who am I kidding, they designed Maka's room for orgies, I guarantee it)
>>43688745We could just open Silk's realm for everyone to enjoy (for a limited time).
>>43688594>One one hand, this is adorable. On the other, you did kinda grant my request to let me design Silk's army a while back and this wasn't it. So I'm kinda annoyed.Well, this is more of a peacetime servant force that she can press into service if required than an actual army. They can't even act independently of her outside Pearl.
>>43688729>Tia is beside her, nearly dancing with excitement. "...It's almost time."Is that from Silk's description, the marriage finally happening, or both?Anyway>Let's go
>>43688784It's because it's happening.
>>43688729>Let's go.>>43688741I just want 50 or so so Tia gets to find the real us and be happy.
>>43688798It'll take a lot more than 50 for maka to want make love without a haze of lust.
>>43688630Basically "wrong setting" she'd try to make things similar to normal people to be less scary but she'd keep screwing up and adding stuff from euro centric settings or slapping crystals on airships that look nothing like those from exalted
>>43688742>Not. They're not real.Not him, but we should be at least a little wary of sinking into that kind of lust.I do actually want to try it out, I bet we could win even, but I'd like some sort of safeguards that we won't accidentally drag people into it. But other than that getting some release like this could be pretty healthy for us, blowing off some steam with non-real hobgoblins is better than making another mess.
>>43688813The final fantasy inspired army, wasn't it? That seemed cool.
>>43688810Would two thousand do it?
>>43688815It's a fine line between being a safeguard and feeding our issues.
>>4368884450/50 shot >>43688853I think we have Marena beat at this point.
>>43688873>I think we have Marena beat at this point.I don't know, she's a Lunar, she might literally mean 9 at once, tentacles yo.
>>43688873Not yet, no.Shapeshifted Tia is still "people".
>>43688938What about an entire water-court?
>>43688742>Not. They're not real.>>43688815If you'll recall, First Age Maka's problem was spending too much time TRYING to tend to her inexhaustible lust instead of attending to her actual duties. She spent days never even leaving her bed. It had nothing to do with whether or not mortals were involved.
>>43688967That's absolutely not Maka's problem though, our sexing has never gotten in the way of our actual duties, but it has hurt people. We have not nor will we shirk our duties for endless sex, this thing with Silk can easily be a once in a while playdate, ranging from once a month to even longer.
>>43689016Hence "you're sounding a lot like First Age Maka".
"Let's go." You take their hands in yours, and suddenly feel something hard hidden in Amata's hands... a pebble?Both of them smile as you take the stone from her hand, surprised: It's smooth and polished, a gentle orange-pink in color, a bit flat on two sides and pointy at the ends, shaped like an almond. You feel a flow of Essence within."...Is this a hearthstone?" you wonder, a bit confused. "One of yours?""We decided to give you a gift of our own... even though it's more like a gift for all of us." Amata kisses you. "And no, it's a new Manse."You're delighted, but even more confused. "...I thought we couldn't build anymore Manses.""Zaan helped us with a spell." Tia nods. "He can create a Manse on a Demesne in just a day."What. "...Well why didn't you tell me that? If i knew it I wouldn't have sent Silk to drain all those Demesnes I thought we couldn't cap!""Hold your horses." Amata pulls on your cheek. "We still can't cap them. It's not just one day: the spellcaster needs to have scouted the place in detail, and to have a detailed blueprint of the Manse he's trying to raise with sorcery. All the prep work is the same. It cuts down on some costs and time, but it doesn't let you just snap your fingers and summon one."You massage your cheek. "...Still, it's amazing. When did he learn that spell?""While helping with building Golden Reach." chimes in Tia. "He had an inspiration, so we decided to use it to make you a surprise. Oh, and the demesne is the one in the island.""...The sea elementals' one? They were on to this?" Apparently you can't trust anyone. You get both of these amazing girls in a deep hug. "...Thank you so much, both of you. It's... This day has been amazing. I'm so happy. It can't get any better.""Thank you." Amata kisses your cheek. "I can't wait to use it.""...use it?" You look at the hearthstone again, suspiciously. "What does this hearthstone do, anyway?"(cont.)
>>43688967>>43689016While I'd love to pitch in and support one of you, this really isn't the thread for this kind of discussion/argument.It's a thread to be happy. Maka is getting married, #100, happy things, happy thoughts, happy posts. Please don't talk about curses or whatever hot topic there is. Not today, please.
>>43689059Oh man we didn't get either of them gifts
>>43689059>stone of gender swapCalling it now.
>>43689059>"Thank you." Amata kisses your cheek. "I can't wait to use it."What does it do Amata?
>>43689102I guess that's how we're going to get her pregnant.
>>43689102>>43689142As long as changing into a male form doesn't kill the kids in us. Guys don't exactly have a womb.
>>43689168It could be that.Or...it could just give Maka the tools needed instead of changing her completely. A penis, instead of the whole body.
>>43689102It is a three-dot Water one...
>>43689168Probably be okay, Zaan and Amata know about these kinds of things so they won't give it to us if it was a danger
>>43689187You sick bastard......... I'm on the edge of my seat here.
>>43689187But my heart EF!
>>43689102>Maka with a dickEveryone is officially in danger
This is bad guys, all our clothes are too girly to wear as a guy, we're going to need at least one or two sets to wear as a dude
>>43689322I will vote against motion to not be female outside of the bedroom. There doesn't seem to be a point.
>>43689322we'll just borrow those of our brother, it will be fine.>>43689334remember when Maka disguised herself to visit her people incognito and had lots of problems hiding her makas?
>>43689334I'm all for staying as a girl most if not all the time, but being able to change gender is really useful for going around unrecognized as Maka or other such circumstances.
>>43689102STONE OF GENDER TRANSFORMATION (MANSE •••)This peach-colored, almond-shaped crystal enablesits bearer to change gender at will.Yuuuup, fits the description perfectly.
>>43689373>>43689375We need to wait and see what it actually is first before we start making plans. Also we'll probably just look like Karas, who is also a 6"5' brown person.
>>43689418>implying Maka won't be Archer
>>43689059>"Thank you." Amata kisses your cheek. "I can't wait to use it."Considering the hearthstone she just gave us, I wonder how long it has been since Amata has had a good dicking.
>>43689430Thought that was our dad?
>>43687558How can you punch something with a kick? That makes no sense.Oh wait, this is exalted. Carry on.
"It's a surprise you'll find out later." Tia says, clearly excited. "Just hold it for now." She urges you, as you pocket it.The three of you, amidst roaring cheers and showers of thrown petals and rice, walk up to the golden circle embedded in the centre of the Manse, just as noon strikes.Looking up, you see Pyre Spark, wreathed in a cape of entwined flowers of a billion colors, standing atop the wooden tower-altar, towering above you. Her face is a mask of happiness.Just as the first ray of light pierces through Golden Reach and shines down on the three of you, she screams, atop the din of the crowd: "DIVINE MAKA!"You feel the metal plate under your feet vibrate for a second, and then gently lift off the ground as you, Tia and Amata rise up almost but not quite up to where Pyre Spark is.Bit by bit, the noise dies down as the priestess of the Sun lifts her hands to command silence.It's futile to hope for real, total silence in here, but still, it gets quiet enough that she doesn't have to scream to be heard. She does it anyway, the echo of her words bouncing everywhere in the vast focal room."An Exalted's life is long. Longer than us mortals can truly understand, I believe." She begins. "What ties can last for such a long time? What sort of enemies, of friends, of comrades, of lovers can be bound to one another for such long spans of time?"She lets her words ring out until the echo dies."I believe that this love can stand the test of such time. So, let us bear witness to it. On this day, under the Light of the Unconquered Sun, we are all here to witness the first step of this love."She looks on to the crowd."Not many of us will be able to see if this love survives to the end. But we can all see plain as day that, today, Maka, Tia, and Amata tai Tianna... their love triumphs."(cont.)
>>43689407And it's an immediate action!
>>43689407Can we use it for anything other then gender swap? Like can it be used as a normal essence container?
>>43689188>>43689269>Boy Maka>Futa MakaWhichever it is, someone will be happy.
>>43689479>Dat filename and editNiiiice
>>43689471It's still a normal hearthstone, we can get essence from it and use it to power our artifacts and stuff
>water temple manse>Yaraon got worshippers and people settling on his landTwo promises fuffilled
>>43689466>"Not many of us will be able to see if this love survives to the end. But we can all see plain as day that, today, Maka, Tia, and Amata tai Tianna... their love triumphs."I love you Pyre
>>43689545Finally something to put in the Swift Rider
The crowd roars even louder as it explodes into a deafening applause. You cannot make out their words, and even their faces blend in a blizzard of colors and feelings. You feel your knees give in and your head become light all of sudden, as if you were about to faint. Tia's hand grasping your right, and Amata's hand grasping your left, help you stay standing in front of everyone.Then, the noise dies out once more. You turn around to face Pyre Spark once more. She's crying. Her eyes are glowing. She's gesturing for silence, but all of a sudden you feel like something is wrong. She's not blinking, and her eyes are... REALLY glowing. Is she losing control of her Essence in the heat of the moment?She's still speaking,. but you can't hear her words. Something's wrong with you, too. You hear only muddled, confused sounds, and your eyesight is becoming blurry. Everything's flooded with light.Then, all of a sudden, it stops. The focal room suddenly grows darker.For a moment, you think it's just because it's not noon anymore, and the sun has moved on in its path across the sky, no longer shining down directly onto the golden dais.But the dais is still floating two meters from the ground, and the decrease in luminosity has been... way too sudden. The manse is plunged into darkness for a moment as your eyes struggle to adapt.As you look around, you see only three other sources of light in the manse: Pyre Spark's eyes... and... Mikahil's caste mark. He seems as astonished as you are, maybe more.Feeling your heart skip a beat, you crane your neck up, looking straight through the sun-well going through the roof.The Sun is eclipsed.(cont.)
>>43689545Good, that takes some of my apprehension away. >>43689611>Not wanting it on a necklace. It's almost as if you don't want to enhance Maka's makas.
>>43689644>The Sun is eclipsed.This has to be one of the most terrifying sentence in all the quest
>>43689644>The Sun is eclipsed.Oh fuck, now Maka's freakin' wedding is just as important as the return of the goddamn Solars.
>>43689649It doesn't have to STAY in it. Just when we use it so our Anima doesn't explode every time.
>>43689678>>43689681I think Pyre Spark is Exalting as an Eclipse
>>43689700nah, EF likes his perfect circles too much for that, we already have a full circle
>>43689644>The Sun is eclipsed.Oh shit.
>>43689700It's a sign from UCS, eclipses at a wedding are very lucky/amazing.
>>43689644>The Sun is EclipsedLuna is interested in this wedding.
>>43689700Maybe Pyre Spark is getting her brain piggybacked by IGNIS DIVINE so he can enjoy the wedding from the ground floor.
>>43689644We'll make you proud sempai
>>43689644>The Sun is eclipsed.ALL THE HAPPENINGS
>>43689649>It's almost as if you don't want to enhance Maka's makas.We still have the useless heart-shaped Golden Reach hearthstone for that.
There is no panic among the guests, but just a quiet, confused distress. They look at one another, clearly all at loss for words.Pyre Spark is still talking, but it's impossible to hear her. She might not even be speaking a language you understand: it's gibberish. She falls to her knees, with an oddly peaceful expression, and keeps talking to herself. The words are like a knife being sharpened on a stone.Slowly coming back to your senses, you feel your spouses' hands closing around your own. Tia is on the lookout, wary and suspicious. She's close to you, clearly ready to throw herself in the way of anything bad that could be happening.Amata seems more interested in Pyre Spark. Utterly confused, she turns to you."...High Holy Speech words?"Behind Pyre Spark, a haze of light flashes into existence, like a glowing fog, and parts to reveal an imposing, adorned portal. Four meters tall, three wide, carved from magical metals, decorated with stones and glows of pure Essence. It feels ancient.You feel something calling from beyond it.Tia, oddly enough, seems to have calmed down. she has straightened her posture, and is now looking straight into the portal. Amata... Amata is facepalming, with her free hand, and mumbling to herself something like "No, no, no. God damn it. You and your dumb stunts.">Walk into the portal.>Ask Amata if she knows what's going on>Ask Tia if she thinks it's safe>Check on Pyre Spark>Jump down from the dais>(other?)
>>43689845>Walk into the portal.Go Go Go Go Go
>>43689845>>Walk into the portal.
>>43689845>>Walk into the portal.As if this is a choice.
>>43689535They are fun to make.Couldn't come up with a clever name for this one.>>43689845>Walk into the portal.Pic related?
>>43689845>Walk into the portal.This isn't our fault Amata.>"...High Holy Speech words?"Another thing we can learn
>>43689845...Are we being taken into Yu-Shan to have Papa Sun give away the bride properly, or something?
>>43689845>Walk into the portal.
>>43689845Maka's Wedding being more important than the return of the Lawgivers confirmed.
I feel like I'm repeating myself, but, holy shit, it's fucking happening.
>>43689845>High Holy SpeechAnother one of those languages we should pick up and teach to our cult, the clergy at least.
>>43689897Well, so far we're the only confirmed Solar who's been acting in accordance with how Sol actually wants his Exalted to act, and we're forging strong bonds and building bridges with the other Celestial Exalted in healthy and constructive ways.Conky is pleased.Either that or this is a Sidereal plot. You know, one or the other.
>>43689845Maybe we're about to see that five-dot Mentor rating realized?
>>43689938'Confirmed' would be the keyword to use here, since I have a hard time imagining that Maka is the only solar in all of Creation that acts in a way Conky approves of. She can't be the only righteous do-gooder around.
>>43689845>Ask Amata if she knows what's going on
>>43689938Probably not the only Solar, but we have caught and held his attention
>>43689845Don't forget to drag in Amata and Tia
>>43689980Even still, he might be using us as an example, especially since we're already prominent enough to be a big deal in heavenly discussion already."See this? Any of my Exalted, if you've been living like she has, you're in my good books."
>>43689897That Mentor 5 (Unconquered Sun) background actually means something, you know?What kind of mentor would he be if he missed Maka's wedding just because some schmucks are exalting?
>>43690022>we gotta start having more sex
>>43689845>Amata seems more interested in Pyre Spark. Utterly confused, she turns to you.>"...High Holy Speech words?"Could she teach us that?
>>43689845>"No, no, no. God damn it. You and your dumb stunts."Think He's blessing it, actually.
>>43689933It doesn't seem very relevant to anything desu
>>43690027That is true. We DID spend character resources on it, and this is a big deal story-wise.
>Everyone saying Conky's going to come down to give his approval>Implying this won't be him coming down to invoke droit du seigneur
>>43690115>this is somehow a problem
>>43689845>Hug Amata and Tia and bring them with us to the portal
>>43690115Nobody is implying that, silly. We're going up, he isn't coming down.
>>43690120I don't think Maka would have a problem with it. I'm not so sure about, say, Tia.
>>43690138I don't see how she could have a problem, I mean, the guy has four arms, I'm sure he could handle all three of them at the same time.
Clenching their hands in your own as you step forward, the three of you enter the portal. Amata at first was resistant and you had to basically drag her, but then, as if something suddenly snapped in her, she started walking on her own, even more convinced than you or Tia.Is she angry?You walk into the portal and through a short hallway with walls carved out of what looks like solid diamond, and you end up in a massive dome-like complex, crafted entirely in spiraling vaults and columns and arches of gold, silver and diamond. You feel as if you have just stepped in another world. The colors are brighter, the air is warmer, and a tingling sensation fills your skin.Several other gates line the perimeter of this dome. Other twelve of them are similar to the one you walked through, other lead outside, where you can see the spectacle of an otherworldy city of immense size and splendour stretch endlessly in all directions.The topside of the dome you are in is glass, or perhaps adamant, letting you see the sky: It looks...You'd say "fake", but it would be too bad a word for it. It's beautiful, but clearly artificial: It has no depth to it, it's a hemisphere of sky-blue stone covering the city like a second, much larger dome. On that dome, exactly at the zenith, you can see, painted - quite literally - a beautiful sunburst symbol."...Where are we?" Tia mumbles, astonished."...Welcome to Yu Shan, the City of the Gods." Amata groans. To think of all the work I did to keep the two of you from ending up here...""What's that?" Tia asks."Nothing."From one of the gates at the far end, you see a figure wreathed in golden light enter the dome.One you know very well."CONGRATULATIONS FOR YOUR WEDDING, MAKA." He says. "GLAD TO MEET YOU TOO, TIA. AMATA, DON'T LOOK SO MAD. YOU SHOULD BE HAPPY TODAY.">Let him talk.>PANIC>Why did you call me here?>Why shouldn't I be here?>Thank you for showing up.>Is Pyre Spark all right?>(Other)
>>43690187>Amata's someone Conky personally recognizesShould Maka feel jealous right now?
>>43690187>"...Welcome to Yu Shan, the City of the Gods." Amata groans. To think of all the work I did to keep the two of you from ending up here..."I get the feeling we're probably under the protection of the King of the Gods, at least for today.
>>43690187>Thank you for showing up.>Let him talk.Be polite and only fangirl on the inside
>>43690187>Thank you for showing up.Let him know what an honor this is for us.>Is Pyre Spark all right?Also this.
>>43690187>PANIC Senpai!!!!!! Swoon
>>43690187>PANIC>Thank you for showing up.>BUT MOSTLY PANIC
>>43690187>Oh gosh, s-should I strip down or do you want to do us clothed?
>>43690187>>Thank you for showing up.>>Let him talk.>You already know Pyre Spark is alright
>>43690187>Thank you for showing up.>Is Pyre Spark all right?Panicking on the inside is okay too
>>43690187Be happy Amata, it's only a problem if everyone finds out we were here and what are the chances of that
>>43690251>>43690287C'mon, guys, UCS wouldn't do anything harmful to Pyre just for this moment
>>43690203Nah it's cool, I mean Amata lives/works here. It's no surprise HE knows about her.
>>43690187>Thank you for showing up.>Is Pyre Spark all right?
Man, now I'm wishing I'd read this instead of hiding it like the usual dead quest threads. Can someone hook me up with an archive?
>>43690344Second post has a .rar with most of the threads. Suptg has all the other threads.
>>43690326I absolutely don't think he would do anything intentionally harmful, but Pyre is a special case of weird mortal.>>43690344http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Solar%20Quest>Exalted Quest>dead
>>43690336Well usually even being acknowledged by Conky is a big deal, but this quest's UCS is generally more active and attentive than the one in the books.
No need to panic.>>43690203No, Maka should orgasm a little from the happiness of having such a wonderful wife.Speaking of which>>43690187Adding>Cheer up Amatato my vote here >>43690286

>>43690368He must have enjoyed the beautiful naked woman dancing form of worship.
>>43690187>Cheer up AmataYeah please don't be mad Amata
>>43690368Well yeah, but it would be weird if he wasn't. The MC is a Zenith caste with him as a mentor.
>>43690310The other fate ninjas can't do Jack shit if they are brought up for a personal audience with UCS and then right back.
>>43690365EF actually didn't post it this time.
>>43690367Most quest threads die, thus I hide them, but I read this one and I have to say shit's cash. Now I'll have t read the rest
>>43690428There's no point in hiding a dead quest.
>>43690422Even less of a problem, I mean the other Siddies will probably still be mad at her, but fuck them.
>>43690412He was already more active before we took him as a mentor, I just have to keep reminding myself not to think he's the way he's described in the books.
>>43690480His interactions were normal considering the MC is a zenith caste. He's not supposed to be completely absent.
>>43690187>Let him talk.>Is Pyre Spark all right?
>>43690187>PANIC>Let him talk.
Words fail you for a full minute during which, you imagine, nothing much happens other than stammering and mumbling confusedly.When you regain the gift of speech once again, the first words out of your mouth are: "...thank you."He walks up to you and embraces you in his arms. "I HAD TO. YOU ARE LIKE A DAUGHTER OF HOPE TO ME. I COULDN'T WELL GIVE YOUR HAND AWAY IN MARRIAGE WITHOUT SHOWING UP.""A... daughter of hope?" Amata, while still overwhelmed by His presence, replies."I HAD NEARLY LOST ALL HOPE IN THE SOLARS AND THEIR ABILITY TO SAVE CREATION." He explains. "AND EVEN TODAY, OF ALL THE SOLARS IN CREATION, SOME STILL DISAPPOINT ME. BUT SOME ARE GIVING ME BACK MY HOPE. MAKA IS ONE OF THEM, TOGETHER WITH HER CIRCLE."Amata groans. "Unconquered Sun, please... I know you are above such petty concerns, but you do realize how troubling this event could be for Yu Shan's politics?"You're amazed that Amata can talk with the Unconquered Sun with such casual ease. You suddenly realize that this might not be the first time she's met him. After all, she apparently IS a regular in Heaven.For a moment, you wonder how the Sun will answer to her words.He laughs."OF COURSE I DO. BUT I, TOO, AM HERE ON OFFICIAL BUSINESS. THIS IS NO MERE COURTESY VISIT."Amata seems even more worried now. From behind the Sun, a giant lion carved from solid gold, yet absolutely alive, steps forward. The enormous beasts terrifies you for a moment, but Amata seems to only regard him with mild surprise. The creature has a big envelope in his mouth, sealed by a drop of blue wax. It looks all very official and important.Amata nods in thanks at the gold lion, takes the envelope, and opens it. A fragrant smell fills the room. She pulls out papers - enough to make a decently-sized book, covered in small, beautiful calligraphy penned in blue ink. Not official documents, perhaps... more like a letter? An amazingly long one."...Amata?"
>>43690511>>43690480If I remember correctly, he showed up twice before Maka got the Mentor thing. Once for Maka's Exaltation, and once as she prayed for guidance concerning the Titan.
>>43690557We spoke to him like almost immediately after Exalting too, that's when he gave us that "everyone can be saved" speech.>>43690545>DAUGHTER OF HOPEHype Title Get
>>43690557Exactly. The first one is guaranteed, every zenith gets that one. The second one is perfectly reasonable, if the UCS answers any prayer it would probably be from a zenith caste, since they are his high priests by definition.
>>43690545>beautiful calligraphy penned in blue inkDemonic laws and official documents are written in blue, right?
>>43690545>He walks up to you and embraces you in his arms
>>43690545>He walks up to you and embraces you in his arms.O-oh my.
>>43690427Also didn't post the wardrobe; not that we were going to change clothes anyway
>>43690588Or a letter from the Maiden of Serenity
>>43690588Blue is also the color of Venus.Remember when Amata said we'd need blue in our wedding dresses? Yeah, that's why.
>>43690545>YOU ARE LIKE A DAUGHTER TO MEOdds of UCS-senpai lewds, dropping rapidly
>>43690571Divine Maka, Exalted of the Sun, Princess of the Earth, Queen of Tianna and Gem, and Daughter of Hope
>>43690632Thrice Blessed Maka according to Ligier too
>>43690545>I COULDN'T WELL GIVE YOUR HAND AWAY IN MARRIAGE WITHOUT SHOWING UP."
>>43690616Wouldn't stop the Greeks.
>>43690616Nothing will stop our love for Sempai
>>43690616We just need to be NOTICED more.It took Merela strangling a Primordial to death to get noticed enough for waifu status, we're not quite on that level yet.
Amata gives a quick browse to the first few pages, and seems to relax."...Alright. Now I get it.""I'M PLEASED THAT YOU DO.""It's insane, but if you got my boss on your side in all this, then I'll have to just run with it.""...What about the rest of the letter?" You wonder, noticing that there are about a hundred pages she didn't read yet."My boss..." She sighs and smiles. "...Writes very very long letters. I'll read the rest at home.""...What does it say?" You turn to Sol Invictus. "What's going on? What's this official business?"Sol pats your head."NO EVIL BORN OF A HUMAN HEART IS BEYOND REDEMPTION. NO DARKNESS BORN OF A HUMAN SOUL IS TOO BLEAK FOR LIGHT. THIS IS THE REASON WHY THE GIFT OF EXALTATION WAS GIVEN TO THE HUMAN RACE. YOU REMEMBERED MY WORDS, AND TOOK THEM TO HEART. THROUGH THE POWER OF YOUR LOVE, YOUR KINDNESS, YOUR FRIENDSHIP, AND YOUR HOPE, YOU'VE PROVEN THAT EVEN A DEATHLORD CAN BE DESTROYED, AND THAT EVEN A DEATHLORD CAN BE REDEEMED."You think you're blushing right now."IN LIGHT OF YOUR ACTIONS, AND THE ACTIONS OF OTHER OF YOUR SOLAR BROTHERS AND SISTERS AROUND CREATION, I HAVE CONSIDERED THE POSSIBILITY OF RETURNING THE CREATION-RULING MANDATE TO THE SOLARS."Your heart skips a beat. Amata almost throws her letter to the ground. Tia has no idea what's going on."I HAVE DECIDED IT IS NOT YET TIME."Amata breathes the biggest sigh of relief you've ever seen her take.>Why not?>...Is it my fault?>Perhaps you are right. It's not yet time.>(Other?)
>>43690616One obsessive fangirl step at a time, anon.
>>43690675>>Perhaps you are right. It's not yet time.If some of the other Solars are disappointing him then it isn't time.
>>43690672Not trying to start a debate, but love doesn't mean lewds
>>43690675>...Is it my fault?AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
>>43690675>Perhaps you are right. It's not yet time.We'll work on that, don't you worry about it UCS
>>43690675>...Is it my fault?
>>43690675>Perhaps you are right. It's not yet time.Continue to believe in us!
>>43690675>Why not?>...Is it my fault?Oh damn. Guess we will have to settle with a 90/100 score.
>>43690675>Perhaps you are right. It's not yet time.I wonder if Luna is around here somewhere, I imagined with the eclipse the two of them sitting together watching the wedding.
>>43690675>Sol pats your head.MOTHA. FUCKIN'. HEADPATS.
>>43690675>Perhaps you are right. It's not yet time.
>>43690675>YOU'VE PROVEN THAT EVEN A DEATHLORD CAN BE DESTROYEDConcerned?>Perhaps you are right. It's not yet time.
>>43690675>Sol pats your head.HEADPATSAREMAGIC
>>43690675>Perhaps you are right. It's not yet time.There's other solars, solars that have been disappointments in the eyes of the sun.All must be responsible enough for the duty and burden before it is returned to the solars.
>>43690734He means Silver Prince> AND THAT EVEN A DEATHLORD CAN BE REDEEMED."That's Tyrant
>>43690675>>Perhaps you are right. It's not yet time.UCS is one of those persons you can trust the judgement, mostly. Not that he doesn't have his own issues.> I HAVE CONSIDERED THE POSSIBILITY OF RETURNING THE CREATION-RULING MANDATE TO THE SOLARS."Sol, you had to be physicaly restrained to not do it, according to your envoy. You don't have to try to look cool
>>43690747I know I just wanted a 100% he is not coming back.
>>43690675>Tia has no idea what's going on.Haha. Oh, Tia.
>>43690764Ah then maybe, according to Nysela we can't be sure yet.Best to plan for a definitely coming back until more proof is had.
>>43690798He is coming back. Getting destroyed is just a one year timeout.
>>43690802Can you blame her?
>>43690853He might not be. Getting blasted by the titan's main weapon is probably the only force in creation that could do it that way.That said we should definitely assume he is going to come back.
>>43690675>"I HAVE DECIDED IT IS NOT YET TIME."And thank god for that. He's already mentioned that a lot of them are still massive disappointments, and can you imagine what they'd do with a blank cheque of "The most supreme being in existence declares my right to rule what I want"?
>>43690853Even then he'll reform with the Neverborn and they'll be fucking pissed at him for getting rekt.When the Lion fucked up they tortured him and sealed him inside his own armor
>>43690675>Perhaps you are right. It's not yet time.I feel like giving the Mandate to "the Solars" might be a bad idea in general. There should be more qualifications required than just "has a Solar Exaltation".
>>43690890Which only makes him more dangerous.
>>43690915Oh yeah he's going to be hellbent of fucking us over.
"...It's not my fault, isn't it?""YOUR ACTIONS, AS WELL AS THOSE OF OTHER SOLARS WHO, LIKE YOU, ARE MY REASON OF HOPE, ARE THOSE THAT MADE ME BELIEVE THAT THE MANDATE OF HEAVEN CAN BE RETURNED IN THE FIRST PLACE. BUT I AM NOT HAPPY WITH THE ACTIONS OF ALL SOLARS UP TO NOW.""...Maybe you're right. If there are... other Solars, out there, who are evil and unjust and whose actions are still disappointing you, it would be wrong to empower them with the Mandate.""PRECISELY." He points out, and snaps his fingers.The noise echoes loudly, and becomes a roar of lightning.One second later, as the echo bounces back, a thunderbolt of golden light from out of the clear skies of Heaven smashes through the adamant domed roof you are under and strikes you.You feel yourself disappearing in an Essence flash of overwhelming power. When the flash disappears, one second later, you are lying prone in a smoking crater, smoke coming out of every inch of your skin. (cont.)
>>43690922Time to turn the Bod into a recurring villain that we always beat down and humiliate.
>>43690923Zeus isn't going to like this.
And, as you stand back up, you realize that it's as if a fragment of that golden thunderbolt has lodged itself on your head, forming a wreath, a crown made of some substance that's neither lightning nor fire, neither metal nor light, and yet resembles all of those things."THIS IS WHY I WILL GRANT IT ONLY TO YOU. THIS IS A FRAGMENT OF THE CROWN OF THUNDERS, THE SYMBOL OF SUPREME SOLAR AUTHORITY AND THE EMBODIMENT OF THE CREATION-RULING MANDATE.""IT IS NOT YET TIME FOR THE FULL CROWN TO BE RETURNED TO CREATION AND FOR CREATION TO HAVE A QUEEN ONCE MORE.""BUT, FOR NOW, YOU WILL CARRY A FRAGMENT OF THAT POWER IN MY NAME, AND BE ITS PRINCESS.">(open reply)
>>43690923Ow?Was that a powerup?
>>43690853I don't think he's coming back, guy. I understand the need to shadowrun, especially when it comes to Deathlords, so feel free to plan contingencies for if he does come back but at the moment I feel content in believing the Silver Prince is toast
>>43690923You know, it kind of makes more sense this way anyway. Granting something to a diverse group of people because of the actions of some of them is kind of stupid and will inevitable lead to people not deserving it. It's much better if he does it on a case-by-case basis, IMO>>43690971>Princess Maka>Squeel like a little girl
>>43690971>Wonder how Tia reacted when seeing her waifu blasted by lightning out of nowhere.
>>43690922>>43690915This is assuming that when Conky is saying destroyed, he means temporarily impeded and hurt. I trust Conky to be straight, and if he says he's destroyed there's little wiggle room there to say he's coming back, especially when he reiterated that Deathlords CAN be destroyed implying finality.
>>43690971We'll make you proud Sol and we'll guide the way for other to do the sameAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH
>>43690971>Um... Thankyou? I umm iwontletyoudown.
>>43690971Damn gurl. Maka is fucking fine.>>43691036>We'll make you proud Sol and we'll guide the way for other to do the sameThis though
>>43691030Yes, for example the Tyrant was destroyed recently. :^)
>>43690971>I... I don't know what to say. But I hope I will prove myself worthy of this honor. Thank you for your trust in me.I really dont know what Maka would reply with other than really confused silence and only being able to thank Sol Invictus for his trust.
EF, is like... the Silver Prince dead dead? If Conky says he's destroyed, does that mean legit no bones destroyed? I mean, of all people in Creation, he would know right?
>>43690971>Glomp the Sun and hug him, >Then do the same to your amazing husband and wonderful wifeIs there any Charm we can use rigth now to make Maka extra hug-y? Because we need to get our Anima to flareI love this pic.

>>43691059He didn't say he was destroyed, he said that proof was made that a deathlord can be destroyed.It's ambiguous.
>Tia: "I don't know who this dude is, but he made my wife extra sexy so it's all good"
>>43690971ACTIVATE ALL THE CHARMS, AND ACCEPT THE TITLE WITH THE GRACE A FUTURE QUEEN HAS
>>43690971The Realm is going to have a fitActually they're not going to have a fit, they're going to collectively lose their fucking minds. I mean shit. Next Immaculate to call Maka Anathema is going to have so much egg on his face that they could make an omelette for every resident of Yu Shan.
>>43690971>Princess of the Earth isn't just a sobriquet any longer.
>>43690971Activate all our charms, flare our anima, be proud and humble and accept this righteous appointment.
>>43690971>thank him for this chance and promise not to let him down.
>>43691142He's your Godfather-in-law.
>>43691152Actually, they won't care. The realm worships the five dragons as supreme beings, and the immaculate dogma is their law.What the UCS or heaven do is irrelevant to them. They probably see the UCS as some uppity god who needs to be put in his place.
>>43690971Kneel before the king, princess, and swear an oath: that you will perform your duty to the best of your abilities and fulfill the destiny Solars were made for.

>>43690971>>43691157>>43691143Second! We can't screw up accepting our appointment by squeeing like a girl. We can do that after
>>43690971>>(open reply)Accept with gratitude and then hug the shit out of him.
>>43691220We can, but even so I want to spend the essence. We'll recover it by next thread anyway
>>43691192No. Even if we did outrank the dragons, the immaculates still don't care. How is that hard to understand?Their dogma says solars are anathema. This doesn't change if a solar displays a solar themed crown on their head.
>>43691192The immaculates would not give a shit, I mean them as a whole and the real hardline ones would just call us a liar or like the biggest anathema ever and try extra hard to kill us.
>>43691201You have them.On the minus side, it seems the thunderbolt has disintegrated your wedding dress.A second of OOC. This drawing is one I commissioned specifically for this Quest, of course. I thought that, after going on so long with essentially stolen art (something I feel guilty of from time to time), it was time to have an original drawing of, at least, the main character.I was thinking of using it as the OP image in the character sheet from now on, but I want to hear your opinion as well.
>>43691220I don't see why it matters if we spend essence to activate all our social charms and flare our essence, we'll be back up to full next thread.
>>43691244>>43691258>>43691192They don't recognize or even really know about the authority of Heaven or the UCS. So it doesn't matter to them, all they know is that an anathema is an anathema.
>>43691259>I was thinking of using it as the OP image in the character sheet from now on, but I want to hear your opinion as well.Abso-fucking-lutely.We'll need to replace one of our dresses to put this one in, how about 7 since we're all done with succubusing Tia and Amata
>>43691259Do I I do it do it
>>43691259Fine by me
>>43691301I'm fine with that.
>>43691244>How is that hard to understand?You said "The realm worships the five dragons as supreme beings" but if the dragons agree that we out rank them then the realm would have to go with it.
>>43691259>I was thinking of using it as the OP image in the character sheet from now on, but I want to hear your opinion as well.Very yes>>43691301>We'll need to replace one of our dresses to put this one in, how about 7 since we're all done with succubusing Tia and AmataThat's good too
>>43691259I don't know. The one in the OP right now is actually very attractive. That commission has grotesque proportions.
>>43691259>it was time to have an original drawing of, at least, the main character.What about the fanarts?>I was thinking of using it as the OP image in the character sheet from now onDo it, hell yes.
Question: What does the Creation-Ruling Mandate do? I don't just mean mean mechanically, fluff-wise, what changes now that someone is in possession of it again.
>>43691330I mean, I suppose so but I imagine they'd be hardpressed to acknowledge our authority given they get huge essence gains by pretending to be the big kings of the hill
>>43691330They don't actually have any contact with the dragons.And we don't "outrank" the dragons in the first place, they are the five primary souls of Gaia, the primordial. They are incarna level in power, and they are outside heavenly politics because the fact of their nature makes all the gods in heaven really uncomfortable.
>>43691259She's wearing them now, or is Maka naked?
>>43691301What, no. There are better options to replace.
>>43691330The dragons are asleep and have been for hundreds of years. And anyone that spoke to them wouldn't be believed and would be killed for heresy.
>>43691370It establishes who has the right to rule Creation. Currently the Dragonblooded have it, after having successfully toppled the Solars, although according to the books basically nobody who the Dragonblooded haven't personally stomped and brought into line recognizes it. Getting Conky's backing is basically indisputable. He's ALSO a usurper, technically, but the Primordials are in no position to do anything about it, which makes his authority supreme.
>>43691339Yeah, this. The commission is just way too oversexed, the OP pic is a lot better.
>>43691259I really, really like the current OP image, but considering you commissioned it and it does show Maka after a HUGE turning point, it is fitting to use.
>>43691259>I was thinking of using it as the OP image in the character sheet from now on, but I want to hear your opinion as well.I don't like it as much. The breasts are frankly kind of silly. They're bigger than her pelvis.
>>43691370It's carte blanche for Solars to do as they please in Creation, without being impeded or interceded by the forces of Heaven. The fact that we even have margin of that authority speaks volumes of how highly Conky thinks of us after all the shit First Age Solars pulled.
>>43691371Ok let's call that plan b for now. Does this mean every god will know we call the shots and if so who might still try and ignore our wishes? We know that 5 dragons are unlikely to be throwing a party but did they at least get the memo?
>>43691259I like it, and since you commissioned it I say go for it.
>>43691421The dragonblooded actually DONT have the Mandate, they just rule Creation.If they had the Mandate then the gods would listen to them, they wouldn't need the immaculate dogma and immaculate martial arts to beat them up and force gods into line.
>>43691259I like it and it's a really good moment, it's the new and improved Princess Maka. I would miss the old ones though, maybe keep them around for some other use?
>>43691435So, what you are saying is next pic needs bigger hips?
>>43691301Just to know, are you the anon who really don't like #7?'Cause we're not done succubussing our husbando and our wife.Personaly, I'd rather get rid of that beige outfit. I don't remember the number certainly, but I think it's the 11th
>>43691428This. The OP pic is clearly of a woman who is hot as fuck, but she looks pretty and dignified. The commission, while neat, primarily just conveys TIIIIIIIIIITS. I like it as a picture, but not as our primary one.
>>43691259What about a compromise? Have the current one for the first sheet, and the new version for the Charms list?
>>43691461Nah, the gods are cunts who would act like cunts no matter what.
>>43691259I like it and say go for it. Some people don't like it.If anything, you could use both images, one for each page for the character sheet.
>>43691461the Mandate was gained by Conky in the first place by killing the original rulers. If the DBs killed the Solars then for all intents and purposes they are as legitimate as any Solar with the mandate.
>>43691470Which one?I mean I'm not a huge fan of #7, but I've never said so in the threads. I'm open to other ones thoguh
>>43691503There are clothes there that have never been used.
>>43691487I'm perfectly fine with that.>>43691259Hey EF. This please: >>43691487
>>43691259>On the minus side, it seems the thunderbolt has disintegrated your wedding dress.Farewell, sweet prince. I hoped we would keep it.>I was thinking of using it as the OP image in the character sheet from now on, but I want to hear your opinion as well.It's a pretty good pic for Maka, and I love it, but it gives off a different vibe than the other. If you want to change is sure.Maybe keep the other one on the "powers" sheet?
>>43691500The Mandate was gained by Conky and given to the original Solars but that doesn't mean it defaults to the dragonblooded after they murdered the solars.It's still the UCS's to give, he never gave it to the dragonblooded.
>>43691259I mean, your going to get dissenters because it's sexualized (no shit) and cartoonishly proportioned, but I like it and I'm fine with using it as OP
>>43691546He also took it away from the Solars near the end of the First Age
>>43691487I'd be fine with doing it the other way around.
>>43691563The new pic is better for the first page, since it's her. It's basically a better reference pic.
>>43691259>>43691563Yeah I'd like the new one to be the OP, really show the new Mandate of Heaven Maka
>>43691519Or lets do the reverse, have the new one for the opening and the current one for charms
>>43691546>The Mandate was gained by Conkyif it was gained by him by murdering the Primordals then it was gained by the DBs when they murdered the Solars.
>>43691563>>43691587>>43691589I think it's more appropriate to use the new image in the charms image.The dignified sexy queen belongs in the basic character overview. The hypersexual essence flaring one is basically in line with what a bunch of our charms do.
>>43691259Make the new OP with this Maka, but keep the old charm sheet?
>>43691503>I mean I'm not a huge fan of #7, but I've never said so in the threads.Alright. It's just that last time there was an anon who did say so.>Which one?I find #11 and #8 kind of "meh". #15 too, but I tink it's because it doesn't have color, because I like the style otherwise
>>43691594Technically by that logic, someone would have need to have ganked Conky somewhere in there.Conky overcame the Primordials. Nobody's ever overcome Conky, so whoever he says is in charge is in charge, until someone can come along and slap his shit.
You try and contain yourself, as overwhelmed as you are in this moment, and utterly fail.You falls down on your knee before the Unconquered Sun.You let your Anima blaze to its maximum power, the crest that is your Iconic display exploding into pure light behind and above you. The Essence joins with that of the crown, making it, too, flare brighter and brighter.[ALL CHARMS]"...I accept this crown and the burden it bears, Sol Invictus. I will set things right. I will strive to save Creation from its many dooms, and to bring hope to the future. This I swear, on the Crown of Thunders."His normally stern countenance cracks in a smile."I ACCEPT YOUR OATH, MAKA, PRINCESS OF CREATION AND DAUGHTER OF HOPE." He offers you a hand to stand up.You let your Anima slowly glow away as it naturally vanishes, still reeling from the enormity of what just happens. You squeeze Sol's hand touching yours for a bit, as if to make sure he's real and solid and not a dream or a ghost.He gently pulls you to him and kisses you on the forehead."MY HOPES ARE WITH YOU, MAKA. IF EVEN YOU FAIL OR FALL... I DON'T THINK I COULD EVER BEAR TO HOPE EVER AGAIN." He says, with a touch of sadness in his voice.From behind him, you see a woman, who had gone unnoticed to you up to now (or maybe she just arrived?), silver-haired and red-eyed, peek at you with a smile.(cont.)
>>43691597Nigga, what? The current one doesn't even have an expression or feelings to it.
>>43691594No, since the DBs never did anything to the UCS.Incidentally, the DBs never deposed the solars either, that was the sidereals who manipulated the DBs into doing it. And also incidentally, when the solars were murdered they didn't have the mandate.
>>43691618>Conky overcame the Primordialsthat was more the Exalts, though.
>>43691259Might want to call it soon EF and get back to the quest.
>>43691594The mandate was taken by the UCS after the primordial war and essentially loaned to the solars to rule creation in his name and with his blessing.He took the mandate away from the solars when they went batshit crazy and never gave it to the dragonblooded who usurped them.The mandate is for the UCS to give, nobody has taken it from him.
>>43691597I can get behind this logic.
>>43691560Yes, but that doesn't mean he gave it to the Dragonblooded. Their authority is only recognized in how far they can flex it, and given the brewing civil war and the loss of their Queen that authority is quickly deteriorating
You locked eyes with her for a split-second, but in that moment you felt dread and terror crawl up to you. Her red eyes feel like pools of blood, and in her glance and movements there's the predatory confidence of someone who knows she is at the top of the food chain, and enjoys every second of it.And yet, in those eyes you saw... malice, trickery, deceit, brutality, violence, arrogance... but not a hint of evil, or hostility, or enmity."Are you two quite done?" She asks, in an almost-singalong voice, melodious, but as sharp as a steel wire's vibration. It carries the same echo of power as Sol's, but not quite the same volume. "I wanted to give my blessings to the newlyweds as well."[SESSION END]
>>43691626What are you talking about? She's coy and attractive, flirty yet still classy, and perhaps a little bit smug. The new one is just streetwalker tier.
>>43691640the mandate is just words, anyone can claim to have it or that he can give it to someone. It's literally non-existent.
>>43691625>>43691653Is that Luna? This WAS an eclipse, after all, which means they should both be present.
>>43691653>[SESSION END]Oh boy, time for Luna. Next time.Thanks for the thread as always EF. Really can't wait for next time.
>>43691597No, I know what your trying to pull and I ain't buying your weak justification to bury the new image so it won't be seen in the opening OP. I think it fits as the new OP, hyper sexualized and cartoonish and all. Fuck off.
>UCS and Luna both show up in person to congratulate us>Venus just sends a letterPoor Amata.
>>43691653Thanks for running!This thread was awesome!
>>43691653Holy Shit, Luna Thanks for running boss
>>43691653>LunaOh fuck.Thanks for running, EF.
>>43691653>malice, brutality, and violence>no hostilityHow does that work?
>>43691380Right now.No need to discuss the clothes now, there'll be time. I promise.As for the pictures, let's vote on this.As silly as i might sound, i'll ask it: please vote only once. This is not a game decision, I just want to know what each player prefers.>Use the new picture for both sheets.>Use the new picture for the first sheet and the old one for the second.>Use the old picture for the first sheet and the new one for the second.>Use the old picture for both sheets.
>>43691704It's a long letter, though. For all we know she got the best deal.
>>43691739>>Use the new picture for the first sheet and the old one for the second
>>43691739>Use the old picture for both sheets.It's kind of sad how UCS is focusing solely on us while Luna wants to also give us something insteaed of focusing on Tia.
>>43691739>Use the new picture for the first sheet and the old one for the second.
>>43691739>>Use the old picture for the first sheet and the new one for the second.
>>43691739>Use the old picture for the first sheet and the new one for the second.
>>43691735It's Luna. She's the survivor and protector. She isn't hostile because we're on the same side.
>Use the old picture for the first sheet and the new one for the second.I think this is best, keeping the lovely old one, and getting the sexy new one.
>>43691739>>Use the new picture for the first sheet and the old one for the second.>>43691704It's cool, Amata is a Sidereal, they regularly interact with the Maidens

>>43691739>Use the new picture for the first sheet and the old one for the second.The charm list doesn't have enough space for the new Maka. The charms take a lot of space.

Damn Ef, that was some good shit.>43691739>Use the old picture for the first sheet and the new one for the second.

By the way, after last thread I went and played King of Dragon Pass as some people mentioned. Was pretty fun, thanks for that.Though I'm still not convinced letting the barbarians raid is good thing. That game would be much easier if you didn't have to worry about your 'friends' stealing your shit and killing your people.
>>43691876That's interesting, the last thread made me think a lot about that game too, but I didn't see it mentioned there.
Personally I don't think its a good idea to change the OP image. A lot of people use the catalog, and just scan for the images of their favorite quests.
This was a good thread
>>43691905That's what I think too. The image is just sort of iconic for the quest, you know?
>>43691684Luna left Sol for Gaia, tho. Or is this one of those things that are different?
>>43691739>>Use the new picture for the first sheet and the old one for the second.There ain't enough room for the new pic on the Charms sheet
>>43691890I think it was EF himself that said something like 'people need to play King of Dragon Pass' or something.
Hey everyone, guy who writes the "Tianna Side-Tales" here. Congrats on the 100th thread, Exaltedfag! Here's a story to mark the thread even more.In my opinion, Exalted are good and all, but heroic mortals are also very important on a local level. Today's story is about a regular mortal whose life was more influenced by the appearance of a heroic mortal than Maka herself. It's about a Maid of the Queen Amata.I hope you enjoy this story, called Seven Pearls.https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uxvHC2O9P6dsrt_Akvx8Wz_uMvUXLUo3L1-umqYm5Og/edit?usp=sharing
>>43691739>>Use the old picture for both sheets.
>>43691739>Use the new picture for the first sheet and the old one for the second
>Use the old picture for the first sheet and the new one for the second.There really is a point to be made that the new picture is mostly just BOOBIES, so sadly yeah, keep the old pic as our frontrunner. Plus there's just keeping the old picture up because it's been the traditional OP pic.
>>43691739>>Use the new picture for the first sheet and the old one for the second.>>43691926I mean she loves Gaia, but Sol and Luna aren't like the Solar/Lunar mates, they don't have any special connection like that.
>>43691926>luna>gaia>monogamous>a primodial>a celestial incarna>monogamousIf even young exalts can't handle it, how do you think beings like that could?Also, I don't see what that has to do with the post you were responding to. It was a solar eclipse. You know how those happen, right? The moon gets in front of the sun. There's some additional mystical lore in exalted about the whole thing, but the basics are the same.
>>43691926What?No, I meant that an eclipse just happened, which means Sol (the sun) and Luna (the moon) are in the same place.
>>43691905Followers should be following the twitter's link instead of constantly monitoring the catalog.A change in the OP picture is more likely to attract new people instead of pushing old readers away.
>>43691986Why would it attract new readers? New readers can't tell which image is older.
>>43691976I'd heard that she got mad at him for playing too much Games of Divinitycraft, so they weren't really speaking or fucking anymore.
>>43691330The dragons sleep at the elemental poles and are both inaccessible and lethal to attempt communication with.
Stop voting again, you chucklefucks.
>>43692012I don't remember anything like that, especially since Luna is almost as addicted to them as Conks is, less so, but still.
>>43691986I don't use Twitter and I'm sure I'm not the only one.
>>43692012Except all of them play the games.
>>43691933That was nice, it's always good to read about mortals having it good.
>>43691933Good work again.
Have another silly edit.I think I will keep doing them for each member of the cast. Well, female members, the men don't have this much hair.Do you guys think I should change the text to something else or keep Horniness as is?
>>43691933Damn fine work, sir! You do us all a great service!
>>43692089>the men don't have this much hair.Some do.
It took me too long to do this, but here's a mockup. Took the chance to update your sheet. Let's close the votes and count them.
>>43692089Is that from something? Nothing came up on google, but it wouldn't be the first time it has failed me.
>>43692119>37 XPHo Shit
>>43692119>6 Social>Elder EssenceBUY ZENITH, BUY ZENITH, BUY ZENITH
>>43692119>the crown is missingYou dun goofed. That was the whole reason I wanted that image.
...Looks like a really weird tie, which means that i'll have to alternate between the two.Which is a goddamn hassle but I'll try and do it because i know you're gonna get cranky otherwise.
>>43692119Does the fragment of the Crown of Thunders we got count as an artifact, or do we have to wait till we get the whole thing?
>>43691668Yes and no, anyone can claim a mandate to rule creation if they've got the power to back it up but the Mandate gives whoever has it divine backing from the Most High. It means the gods have to recognize the authority of the holder.
>>43692119EF LET US BUY ZENITH 6 RIGHT NOW
>>43692159No, I think you should just put your foot down and use your own preference. As long as one of them is the new one and one of them is the old one, it should be fine. The vast majority wanted a mix.
>>43692119>>43692152>Elder Essence ratings are availableHOLY SHIT YOU'RE RIGHT
>>43692155I can make a crowned version if you prefer, I have both versions.Commit 1 essence and you can walk around with the Crown permanently manifested.
>>43692159I think if you just make a choice and lay down the law the majority of us will be okay with it.It's not just the players quest, it's yours too
>>43692119>Social 6We are so fucking pretty, it's glorious.
>>43692211Yeah, it's not something I plan on bitching about. You commissioned if after all, boss.
>>43692203The crown is what's giving us Social 6?Anything else?Speaking of, what does that even make us, we were Incarna level pretty at 5 so what tier are we now?
>>43692159Buy zenith 6, obviously.
>>43692262>Speaking of, what does that even make us, we were Incarna level pretty at 5 so what tier are we now?Not really, Incarna Abilities and Attributes max out at 10, not 5.
So we're buying Zenith 6, right?
Um, buy Zenith 6 I guess... shit, I was not expecting that.
>>43692262The crown raised all out stat limits. >>43692119And gave us a shitload of experience, wow.Buy zenith 6. The rest can wait.
>>43692262We are now in the realm of supernatural beauty.
>>43692203I'd like the Crowned version, even if we don't walk around with it all the time it's too rad to not use.Well actually being an openly Solar queen there really is no reason not to wear it all the fucking time.I'm in favor of commiting the Crown permanently, we'll take it off if something happens
>>43692119>>43692159Zenith 6 and Mental 4 if we have enough, I don't remember the cost equations off the top of my head.
>>43692328I'd say we have a permanent policy of manifesting the crown when we're doing queen shit.There's no reason to keep it up at all times.
Zenith 6: 14XPMental 4: 15XPWe could afford it actually, I'm on the fence though, I really want to pick up some Elder Essence charms, that's where shit gets really fucking retarded.
>>43692119Zenith 6 and Heart Compelling Method
>>43692372Don't we have exactly enough XP for Zenith 6, Mental 4, and one Zenith charm?
>>43692119Buy zenith seems good, maybe mental if we have enough?
>>43692119>Love and Justice & Hopes and Dreams>Parry 3/ Damage 3Sugoi
>>43692372This man's right, lets buy Zenith 6 and see what bullshit crazy charms we get at that level.
>>43692393Yeah we do, I wanted to buy a bunch though.That said I'm on board with Zenith 6 and Mental 4.If charms now then we'll pick one out.
>>43692391We do, unless Elder charms cost more.
>>43692183>>43692211>>43692244Honestly i wanted a vote because i'm undecided too. There's a lot of things to consider, like catalog visibility and tradition and such vs. having an original image. I'm undecided, and it seems the thread in general is undecided as well.But I really owe a lot to ReiDuran, the artist, because he really helped a lot for the entire quest, behind the scenes. He helped me make the character sheet and created the font I use there, has always been supportive, and was a great person to bounce advice off of when I wanted to discuss ideas or when I needed help brainstorming something. So I think I'll go with using the new picture as the first sheet and the old one as the second.>>43692262Social 6, unlocks the ability to buy the third dot in all other abilities, it's a manifestation of the Creation-Ruling Mandate and thus and automatically "I win" button when arguing about "what gives you the right to do X?!".Also it's made of actual holy thunderforce, when manifested (1 Commit essence), you gain +1 success to all social actions and your body is charged with energy giving you +1 damage and pinging for 1 damage whoever strikes you (unless they can somehow avoid it or protect themselves against it).Alternatively, you can manifest it fully and call down a thunderbolt from the sky. For 10 Burn, It can hit an area for a 10-dice 5-damage attack to anyone in it. The area has a radius of 5 meters, but you can increase it by spending extra Burn (it goes from 5 meters to 10, to 20, to 40, to 80, and so on).Alternatively, you can hit yourself with that thunderbolt and grant yourself +5 damage to your next attack.This works only under the open sky and only during the day. (unfortunately i don't have space to write all this on that sheet for now. later i'll try making it bigger.)
>>43692119Another dot in Zenith and Mental (the latter only if we have enough left over for a Zenith charm)
>>43692460>Social 6, unlocks the ability to buy the third dot in all other abilities, it's a manifestation of the Creation-Ruling Mandate and thus and automatically "I win" button when arguing about "what gives you the right to do X?!".>Also it's made of actual holy thunderforce, when manifested (1 Commit essence), you gain +1 success to all social actions and your body is charged with energy giving you +1 damage and pinging for 1 damage whoever strikes you (unless they can somehow avoid it or protect themselves against it).>Alternatively, you can manifest it fully and call down a thunderbolt from the sky.

>>43692460>it's a manifestation of the Creation-Ruling Mandate and thus and automatically "I win" button when arguing about "what gives you the right to do X?!".any special stuff when interacting with gods/elementals, since we know are technically their boss?
I like to think fluff wise that if we get a dot of Mental, it's because we got a lightning bolt to the brain and now Senpai's holy essence is warping it to be smarter.
This means we can electrocute Tia while banging her. This is amazing.Well, i imagine the effects to be more electricity-fire-energy-holy than actual electricity, but still, it's amusing.She might like it.
>>43692501And this is only a fragment of the Crown. Think about what it'll be like when we have the whole thing.
>>43692130It's originally from another (NSFW) quest.>>43692460Pssh, catalog visibility. Zenith 6 has to be seen by all (and those who don't want to see it can hide the thread)
>>43692460>Alternatively, you can manifest it fully and call down a thunderbolt from the sky. For 10 Burn, It can hit an area for a 10-dice 5-damage attack to anyone in it....My bad, 5 Burn, not 10."Elder Charms" cost as much as normal ones.
I wonder if Ketchup is choking on his own tongue? I'd like to think that he's just contemplating why Solars are such OP bullshit, and wondering where it all went wrong so fast.
>>43692460>ReiDuranSo jealous.>>43692536>Get awesome powers form Senpai>immediately use it for sexSasuga
>>43692570Aaand that's me.You seem pretty unanimous about +1 Zenith. As for everything else, let me put up a charm list.
>>43692604Where did we get that many EXp from? Senpai's gift?
Is there a list of essence 6 charms we can buy?I vote for zenith 6 + mental 4 + one zenith charm by the way. But I don't know which charm, since I'm not seeing them.
>>43692570Well then it's settled, Zenith 6, Mental 4 and a shiny new Elder charm (boner stahp)
I feel kind of bad for the other Exalts, they've been exalted much longer and we hit elder essence before them.
>>43692620Yeah well, they should consistently hit double digit successes on Social rolls to redeem Deathlords if they wanted that.
>>43692620It's their own fault for not being awesome.
>Maka didn't even go to boot camp yet
>>43692620I think Amata implied she was an elder already. You have a point about everyone else though.
This new Maka makes my pants uncomfortable.
>>43692653>maka goes to booty camp>manifests crown>starts ordering everyone around
>>43692611Yeah, the Crown of Thunders is OP shit befitting a Solar Queen. We only have a portion of that power, but imagine if we had the whole thing?
>>43692641true enough, the other's haven't really done much ambitious stuff. I mean what is our brother's motivation/goal? All he's done so far is fight Abyssals a bit.
>>43692460>Alternatively, you can hit yourself with that thunderbolt and grant yourself +5 damage to your next attack.>By The Power of Great Sun. I Am The Power!
>>43692572I would LOVE to read an interlude by EF about Ketchup's reaction to this.If he got hospitalized by Maka and her circle claiming a Titan and beating up a deathlord I can't imagine what happens to him after today.
>>43692680You should take them off
>>43692698>I mean what is our brother's motivation/goal?To protect us and liberate Gem. Which are really more fitting goals for a Lunar than a Solar.
>>43692714The quest needs more PoV changes in general. There are a lot of cool things from seeing the quest from the other exalts' eyes.
>>43692620The Unconquered Sun mentioned that you're not the only Solar that caught his attention. He might be thinking about giving your same treatment to other Solars he likes around Creation....Still, you're the first one.Also, don't forget that, when you increase your Physical, you gain health levels, when you increase your Mental, you gain Essence, and when you increase your Social, you gain background points.You have +6 background points. Think of where to spend them.(You'll notice that i'm not listing artifacts and manses one by one for brevity, but those are still legitimate ways to spend those points.)
>>43692714>Our top story in this weeks Serenity Hijack>Leader of Bronze Faction and oldest Sidereal, Chejop Kejak fucking exploded
>>43692733That explains a lot of things
>>43692742pls no>>43692733It's fine, it seems very improbably if everything fell neatly into cliche boxes.>>43692749I don't know.+1 to UCS mentor rating? :3
>>43692698I'd say Mikahil and Valeriana have definitely been our most useful circle mates so far. Val is pretty much the only reason things have gotten fixed as quickly as they did, and Mikahil is out #2 when it comes to making big plans and goals outside of Tianna.Frankly, I've always thought that we dont pay enough attention to our scheming Eclipse, we're always too busy waifuing things.
>>43690971Maka is so gorgeous, she exploded my dick. Zenith 6 is reas.Is Rei going to draw any more characters? I fucking love it when he posts his Maka arts.
>>43691259>I was thinking of using it as the OP image in the character sheet from now onInstantly will me click on the quest 50% less, because ewww. OP's pic is perfect, big boobs and beautiful face with actually nice clothes without going into the TITS and THIGHS look at all these TITS and THIGHS.It's very sexy while remaining classy whereas that other one just reminds me of inflation porn, you know.But, well, whatever, you have other players, it's not like my very subjective opinions amounts to much, since you like the picture that way.I just like beautiful ladies.
>>43692789We should let him know how much we appreciate him then.
>>43692749By the way, EF, if I'm eligible for >>43691933 , I'll take 1 XP again, please.
>>43692749>You have +6 background points. Think of where to spend them.Oh right.I have no clue anymore, Cult up to 3 or 4?Actually let me list them for everyone, just from Core:AlliesArtifactBackingContactsFamiliarFollowersInfluenceManseMentorResources
>>43692814we really should.>>43692749hmm, maybe some more cult?
>>43692742One of the Hobmaids?>>43692749God spy network?
>>43692793I agree with you, the new image is grotesque. The old one already had huge boobs which still retained a sexy shape.
We should increase our cults level.
Forgot to mention the Crown also gives +1 health level.
>>43692749Let's pick up some Cult and Contacts for Gem, our scouting party could put those to good use in finding our parents when they go.
>>43692620>>43692698Maka has been working at her very (abliet admitetly, quickly expanding) limits for month, believe in her cause in an incredibly intense manner, and follow her doctrine to a T.This remind me of this Hindu myth where there was a young man who wanted the best archer in the world to teach him how to use a bow. The archer refused, because he had made a vow to only train the princes of the kingdom. So, the young man became an hermit, prayed to the altar of the archer he had made with a faultless devotion, and his skills ended up rivaling the ones of the archer.Then the archer told the man to cut his own thumb, because he didn't want his skills to be passed to anyone but his true students, and the young man did so.
>>43692860That image could be 10 times taller while still fitting on /tg/ and remaining at less than half of the file size limit, I don't know why you think you have trouble with size.
>>43692749>You have +6 background points. Think of where to spend them.Legendary Backgrounds are a thing, right?If so I'd like to up our Familiar and Mentor, as well as the amount of dots our Crown of Thunder has.2 dots of Cult and one dot of Infuence
>>43692860>>43692863>Contacts for Gem, our scouting party could put those to good use in finding our parents when they go.That's a good idea actually, would that be cool EF?Also on board with +Cult
>>43692827You are. I'll read that story after the thread's over, still got stuff to do here.>>43692879Because my connection is shit and a large image can mean that it takes so long to upload that the captcha expires before it can get through.
>>43692749+ 1 Allies (Outcast DB mostly)Command of an Ariel Legion for the purposed of beating the crap out of deathlords and demons?>>43692898Honestly don't think we should up Silk yet.
>>43692898I really want to avoid Legendary Familiar for now, not that I don't really trust Silk, but too much power at once can't be good.She's already the strongest Fae in the West, no need to up her game even more.
>>43692793You're willing to stop coming 50% of the time only because you don't like the OP pic?
>>43692910I used to have a connection like that about a year ago so I know what you mean, but I don't think going from 300kb to let's say 600kb would make much of a difference.
Lets see >+1 to UCS mentor rating a must>+1 to Familiar rating Nothing could possible go wrong>+2 to cult rating Spread the glory of Maka>+1 to resources need to back the craters>+1 to allies for the last point
>>43692927No, just saying that I come here 50% of the time because the picture compels me.Because dem boobs and that dress. Is all.
>>43692860This >>43692898 sounds good, though trade that point of influence for a point of contacts in Gem.
>>43692950I'm okay with all of that except for Familiar, no need to play with fire if we don't need too.I like anons idea of buying Contacts in Gem to find our parents.
>>43692925This, she should earn it
>>43692898"Legendary Backgrounds" are a thing. the way i do it is that they're three additional dots past the 5th.The 6th dot of a background costs double, the 7th triple, the 8th four times as much.Also, buying charms will have to wait next thread, let's do one xp expenditure at a time.I'll hang around for questions and such, but the thread is pretty much over I think. If you have anything you need to tell me,
Gem is a good idea, but... What about some Contacts in Heaven?
>Mental 4>Cult 4>Hearthstone 3That's 11 Commit Essence and 14 Burn Essence
>>43692985My mind is too blown for thinking rationally.
>>43692985In that case I'll spend three on mentor and three on improving our Crown of thunders.
>>43692985Just wanna say this thread was awesome, congrats on 100
>>43692985So wait, we have to wait until next thread for mental 4, and then again until the thread after that for a charm?
>>43692950>>43692973Yeah, I don't want to bump Familiar yet, either. Is bumping the Crown of Thunders a thing we can do with a point?
In that case> 2 to increase UCS mentor rating a must> 2 to increase Familiar rating > + 1 to cult rating Spread the glory of Maka> + 1 to resources need to back the craters
>>43693079Oh, come on, don't tell me you're in a rush.>>43693105No, only UCS can do that is he gives you the full Crown of Thunders.>>43693026Thank you!
I like the bumping up the crown of thunders idea the most desuMentor and Contacts after that. I don't want familiar right now. We don't need her that powerful just yet, she's already a powerhouse.
>>43692985Let's sayMentor 6 for two pointsCult 4 for two pointsResources for one and Contacts (Gem) for one pointis that the right pricing?>>43692992We have Amata for that
>>43693116There's a big amount of XP suddenly availab.e, I'm worried it'll take really long to spend it all.I mean if we spend an average of 10 per thread and get back an average of 5 per thread... yeah.
>>43693116If we can't up the Crown of Thunders then I suggest we improve Mentor, Faniliar, and Cult.
>>43693105>>43693121Yeah I'm very against legendary Familiar
If we can improve the crown, I really want it.Can we?
>>43693116>>43693132Let's do this, Mentor, Cult 4, Resources, and Contacts>>43693116How pretty is Social 6 Maka EF?
>>43693151Resources, cult and contacts are the most important. Familiar is not
>>43693132I like this.
>>43692860Hey EF, does the Crown of Thunders stack with the rest of our charms and equipment?
>>43693177This please, no familiar
>>43693188Technically our familiar can be purposed towards the same ends as all of those things though.
>>43693213I'd rather we actually level those things though. They're immediately helpful
>Sempai came to see us>Didn't even have to sing a song for him>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7aQz0ccQvM>>43693234Congrats on a great fucking Hundredth thread ExaltedFag, never let it be said we don't love your quest. I hope we have many more, thank you.
Having an army has never been so cool.
>>43692749If we can bump up our mentor rating with Conky senpai, that'd be cool
10/10 best thread
Having the Crown be something that Conky is just holding onto, rather than it being long lost somewhere, is an interesting path to go with.I'm not personally a fan of having powerful artifacts just straight up be handed to us, but it's very cool none the less.
>>43693132I'll second this.
>>43693412We kinda earned by dealing with 2 death lords mate. Shit we redeemed one
>>43693412We didn't just get it, we saved the Tyrant and fucked up the Silver Prince, we gave UCS hope for the future man. That's a fucking lot to ask for.
>>43693412I mean, Conky made the thing, and he's the most powerful being in Creation. If he wanted his crown back, there's very few things stopping him.
