You are Shee Hyul, rebel leader, psychic and Reunited. Your world is ruled by inhuman creatures and this has gone on far too long, it’s time to fight back.Character Sheet http://pastebin.com/fYSgcZdERules http://pastebin.com/LEEi5A3uArchive http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Psychic%20Rebel%20QuestThread 28 http://pastebin.com/s3NR7dqHSetting http://pastebin.com/95D5RNhPBusiness http://pastebin.com/NwspZmKwAllies http://pastebin.com/yVgtiFeuAlly Powers http://pastebin.com/Xm6UGDyXQM Twitter https://twitter.com/anAspiringQMQM Askfm http://ask.fm/AnAspiringQMOld thread >>44128239As the fae's soul rises from his body you reach out with your blasphemous Gift and ensnare it, preventing it from going to...wherever fae souls go to.Your allies don't seem to notice, but Kaelyn shivers as if she felt something.[Fae noble soul gained]“I'm going to change their minds” you say to Kaelyn, reaching out to the unconscious fae minds using your telepathic abilities. Before you change them, you need to know what you're dealing with.The younger fae are both ambitious military officers who gained rank from family connections and who want to use a military career as a stepping stone into politics. Their minds are sharp and cruel – when you first attacked and they were confident of victory they planned on torturing all of you not for information, but for entertainment. One of them planned of raping you first.Their minds contain a lot of information about the facility, it would take time to sort through it all though. They are both minor nobles from rich fae families.
The older fae is colder, far more calculating. He has no moral reservations about hurting anyone, but would only do so for a tangible benefit rather than pleasure. He knows more of the facilities secrets and it was his spell that altered the activation chambers to allow beastmen to survive them. His name is Lorkua Hasied. He is a powerful chaos mage but bitter because he came from a smaller, less powerful fae family. He also had orders from Lord Reaper to report to him immediately if you or Kaelyn returned to the facility – and to gather any proof he could of your presence.From their minds you gather a lot of things you didn't know about the facility, including storehouses of various weapons, databases of psychic knowledge and the fact that there are several hundred frozen Serec stored in a deep sublevel. There's also something about spaceships, but it doesn't make much sense, you'll need to think about what you're seeing before you can make sense of it.You're interrupted by Kaelyn “Change them how?” she asks, still looking unhappy.What changes are you making? (Other than altering their memories of the fight)>Implanted Commands (10 minutes per fae)>Turn them into traitors (1 hour per fae)>Total personality rebuild (1 day per fae)>Other (?)I assume they're all getting the same treatment, unless write-inds request otherwise. The first 2 options leave their personalities intact.
>>44134104>Turn them into traitors (1 hour per fae)
>>44134104>Turn them into traitors (1 hour per fae)>Total personality rebuild (1 day per fae) Only the senior one
>>44134104>Turn them into traitors (1 hour per fae)>Total personality rebuild (1 day per fae) Only the senior one, but only as much as necessary to make him sympathetic to Kae
>>44134104>"Well, for a start, I'm probably going to make it so they don't get off on torture anymore.">Total personality rebuild (1 day per fae)
>>44134104>Implanted Commands (10 minutes per fae)No going to the Reaper about this.Sabotage any atempts to bypass this.
>>44134104>Total personality rebuild (1 day per fae)
>>44134104>>Turn them into traitors (1 hour per fae)
It seems like the Juniors need the personality rebuild more than the Senior does. He's already more or less a good match if we can just turn him traitor, the others not so much. I guess I can get the desire to put stronger bonds on him since he matters more, though.>>44134104Can we see if Lorkua has any info about the lower floor activation chambers or the symbiotes?
looks like traitors for the juniors, personality rebuild for the elder.Please roll 2d20 and vote on extra psychic power used forJuniorsSeniorUsing 1 roll for both Juniors to save time.

>>44134434If they are all noble fae, could we look through their minds for info about Liraels parents?If only when they saw them last.
“They should all be in their meeting for another hour” you say, thinking aloud “and if it overruns, who will question it?”To Kaelyn you gesture to the younger ones “these two will remain who they are, but they will be loyal to me.” Kaelyn frowns.“This one though” you indicate the comatose older fae “he's too crafty, too cunning, even loyal he might plot against me, or attack if he senses weakness. So I need to change him on a much more fundamental level, make him more than just loyal, make him mine.”Kaelyn takes a deep breath as if to shout at you, then thinks better of it, saying quietly “I thought you were better than this Shee” She stalks away to stand by Dev, her stride stiff.You shake your head, would she prefer you kill them? They would not be so merciful had you lost.You get to work on the two younger fae after sending the older one into a deep slumber, with Lirael and Rainya watching him.A couple of hours later its done, and you awaken the two younger fae.One of them, Hezshael - the one who planned on raping you – rises and bows to you “a thousand pardons my lady” he says formally “we had to maintain the pretence in front of our superior.”“Indeed” agrees the other one, also rising and bowing, Gamelor his name is, “It wounded me to raise a hand against you, but I know not breaking cover was needed.”As far as they know, they have been your agents for years, and have interpreted their memories in light of this. They're also lying, they had no hesitation about fighting you, agents or not.“Deal with this” you indicate the dead fae “report it as an accident or rebellious beastmen or something and I need a place within these walls where I will not be disturbed.”“At once My Lady” says Gamelor “some of the lower engineering labs are without power and no one goes down there, allow me to show you.” He speaks just before Hezshael – leaving him to dispose of the body. Hezshael grimaces but does not object.
Psyche Shifting is hilarious.>Move all our points from Int and Fel into Will>Have a score of 106 (assuming we buy a couple more ranks of bloodline like we wanted)>Get World Humbling Strike>Shift all our points from Rapid Shot into Sniper>Use Inevitability to turn our base d20 roll into a 48>Damage cranks up to somewhere just shy of 4000 for a shot since Sniper quadruples itWe could make it hit even harder if we wanted since Impossibility lets us raise feats above the normal max rank. Buy a couple more rapid shots so that Sniper goes above 5 when we transfer the ranks to it and it will hit so damn hard.
Gamelor guides you deep down into the facility, avoiding others, until you reach a cold engineering lab. Down there you spend a full day rebuilding Lorkua's personality, making him your devoted follower. Your friends stand guard, though Kaelyn is clearly unhappy. You hear her complaining to Dev, but its a distant thing. You are also aware of Rainya and Lirael bringing food, but your attention is focused solely on breaking down a powerful and disciplined mind – much harder than the younger fae – and doing so in a way that allows him to keep all his mastery of magic. You also realise that fae minds, particularly powerful chaos mages, simply don't see the world in the way humans and even vampires do. By mortals standards Lorkua is an amoral monster akin to a sociopath or serial killer, but by fae standards he's a closeted academic who is relatively benevolent even when experimenting on living subjects.You wonder if this is a fae thing, or a result of chaos magic. Either way, his mind is no stranger than your own.Eventually it is done, and Lorkua begins to stir. What do you do next?>Talk to Kaelyn>Question Lorkua (what questions?)>Go to a place within the facility (where? For what?)>Other (?)
>>44135078>Talk to Kaelyn
>>44135078>Talk to KaelynTime to make her see things ... our way.
>>44135078>Go to a place within the facility (where? For what?)The frozen Serec containment. Corruption them until we have an army of psychic space bugs to go with our army of psychic beastmen.
>>44135078>You resolve to tell Rainya as soon as the danger is over and not a moment later.
Kaelyn it is, writing.
>>44135071Add in Chaoscraft and it gets even better. Once our Willpower mod hits +50, which is pretty easy to do with Psyche Shifting, we can use do a Persistent Luck Manipulation and then use Inevitability to make it so we have a permanent +20 to everything in exchange for reducing our max PE by 17.
You leave Lorkua to come around on his own, with the others watching him, and then you head over to where Kaelyn and Dev are guarding the door, just in case some wandering beastman comes down here.“Dev can you give us a moment?” you ask quietly.“Sure” he says, heading off to join Rainya and Lirael with Lorkua.“Kaelyn-” you start, she cuts you off.“Save it Shee” she says, her back turned to you, staring down the corridor “It was necessary, they're bad people, it's not wrong when 'you' do it, whatever you want to say I've heard it before.”“Kaelyn please” you say “just give me a chance to explain.”Kaelyn doesn't even look at you, just raises her hand and gives you a gesture that makes her feelings clear.How do you respond?>They are evil, I'm fixing them>This is pleasant, but necessary>You could be next (threaten)>Ok, let's hear your better idea you stuck up bitch! (get angry)>Other (?)
>>44135582>"What would you have me do instead? If you think this is wrong, then, tell me the better way."
>>44135582>>Ok, let's hear your better idea you stuck up bitch! (get angry)
>>44135582>What would you have me do instead? If you think this is wrong, then, tell me the better way.
>>44135582>This is pleasant, but necessaryClassical case of freudian slip, my dear Shee. But seriously>"What would you have me do instead? If you think this is wrong, then, tell me the better way."
Did we ever get around to doing that thing where we were going to try to fix the beastmen?
>>44135655hah, yesMeant to be unpleasant but neccesary
>>44135582>Ok, let's hear your better idea you stuck up bitch! (get angry)
>>44135582>This is unpleasant, but necessary>What would you have me do instead? If you think this is wrong, then, tell me the better way.
>>44135582>You could be next (threaten)
>>44135582Ok, can we just mindcontroll this bitch?
>>44135731>Ok, can we just mindcontroll this bitch?Sure if you want
>>44135731We literally can not, actually.
>>44135747Wouldn't that be harming her and be hindered by Family (and Ichor)?
>>44135582She's just still scared that we're going to turn on her next. She wasn't upset at all when we were talking about completely mindfucking thousands of beastmen, she just scoffed and chuckled at what she perceived as biting off more than we can could chew. The second it's 4 wannabe rapist sociopath fae she's all pissed off again.So, like, maybe call her on her shit here?
>>44135774Yes, you'd lose Family and Ichor favour by doing so
>>44135791>She wasn't upset at all when we were talking about completely mindfucking thousands of beastmenBecause beastmen aren't people, they don't actually have minds to fuck with.
>>44135817They're engineered by the fae to be mega retarded assholes but they're still people with minds and souls.
>>44135817Well Duh! They're not fae! Fae are the only things that count! Don't you understand that lesser creature?
Ask about better way it is.Please roll 1d20+35 Fellowship
Rolled 12 + 35 (1d20 + 35)>>44135836>but they're still people with minds and soulsThats not how the fae (and with that Kae) see it.She was mad about Steel too, afterall.Its more about the fact that after the experience with her father Kae is very scared Shee turns ouit to be the same and is secretly mindfucking her, which is very scary thought, because we totally could and she would never know.The best assurance we could give her is that if we would be doing that, she couldn't askl those questions.>>44135879
>>44135582>This is UNpleasant, but necessary
Rolled 12 + 25 (1d20 + 25)>>44135795So we have one god, a part of our nature and one of our party being all that stands in the way of us going full Borg?>>44135879

Use Inevitability?>Y/N10 minute vote
>>44135985Does it boost Shee or does it mess with Kae?
>>44135985>NThats way too much like using Deific Power if you ask me, I rather not.
>>44136044>Does it boost Shee or does it mess with Kae?It Boosts Shee, so technically there shouldn't be a problem with it....
>>44136044It boosts Shee, but given that you're trying to persuade her by talking to her, its a very fine line.
You know, I think Kae alone might make me vote for Unstoppable next time because god damn I think it's the only thing that might finally break this cycle of us bashing our head against a wall talking to her like this.
>>44136103I don't think this is a technica type debate Anon.
>>44136145Unstopabble would not appy to this though, because its not Shee who keeps trying something.
no Inevitability then
“What would you have me do instead?” you say to Kaelyns back “kill them? Torture them?”Kaelyn turns suddenly until she is facing you “of course not!” she says, waving an arm angrily “but why is your number one response just turning people into your slaves?”“If you think it's wrong Kaelyn” you say calmly “then tell me a better way.”Kaelyn becomes more agitated “bribe them, threaten them, manipulate them, do something other than turning them into mindless meat-puppets!” She paces back and forth in front of you “because Gods forbid someone that follows you have an original thought, one that you didn't put there!”She's being rather unfair “They can still think” you point out “and make their own decision, they still retain the capability to choose” within limits...“Only inside the tiny little box you build for them” says Kaelyn “only so long as they remain useful to you!” She stops pacing and glares at you “so how long until I'm next huh?”That hurts, but you were expecting that, its a logical place for her anger to take her.“Kaelyn-” you start.She leans in and says in a harsh whisper “Does Rainya even love you, or did you put that idea in her head?”For a moment you are so shocked you just freeze. Then shock gives way to anger, to rage.How dare she, HOW DARE SHE?!!What do you do?>Hit her>”How long huh? Now sounds good” (change her mind, lowers Family, lowers Ichor in the Depths favour)>Yell at her>Walk away>Other (?)Write-ins will be filtered through Shee's emotional state. Calm discussion is not an option.
>>44136511>Yell at her>Walk away>"Leave, now. Do not come back."
>>44136511>CRYhow could she say that?
>>44136511>Hit her>Yell at her
>>44136511>Hit herRemember when she backhanded us into a wall at the club because we used Horrifying Gaze on Quinn? Not through a wall but she needs to get smacked.Also is Corruption going to be doing some wonky environmental effects due to the mad?
>>44136511> Hit her> Yell at her
>>44136630>Also is Corruption going to be doing some wonky environmental effects due to the mad?Depending upon what you choose, yes
>Fae who twists peoples minds mad that others use same tool
>>44136511Adding to >>44136572>Do you remeber in the forrest? What it was like when if anyone got hurt it was your fault? do you know what it's like to live with that every day?>Would you like me to undo it?
>>44135904Vampires are considered to be barely less than Fae in Apollyn society. Power and prestige strongly correlates to magical ability. Steel getting controlled scared her because Steel is a powerful vampire and she still got crushed in under a minute despite her dozen other vampires backing her up.
Going with yell + hitwriting
>>44136511>>”How long huh? Now sounds good” (change her mind, lowers Family, lowers Ichor in the Depths favour)
>>44136696That's why you don't trust the fae. You never do.
>>44136511>Other (?)Look her right in the eye and then start shredding the captured fae soul as slowly as possible to be sure she feels it while we do it and then walk away.Time for the mega edgelord option.
“How can you even ask that?!” you half-scream “all I ever did, I did to protect those closest to me!”“You did whatever you wanted!” Kaelyn snarls back “whatever was easiest, whatever was most convenient for you, sure you protect those close to you but only because you think you own them, not because you ca-”You interrupt her by swinging for her. But Kaelyns unarmed fighting skills eclipse your own and she easily brushes your punch aside, and the second and third ones. Your tentacles erupt from your body and lash our at her, forcing her to block and dodge with all her skill, until one strikes her and knocks her back, she parries the next few, and then another hits her, and another...You are so angry you can barely see, but you can see enough to pull your strike just short of hitting Rainya. Dozens of her bodies surround you and Kaelyn, interposing themselves between you both as she yells at you to come to your senses.Kaelyn is backed up against a wall, looking battered by your strikes, but still ready to fight.Dev and Lorkua are keeping their distance, Dev has his hand on Liraels shoulder - your little sister is leaning forwards, as if she wants to come rushing to your side, but Dev leans down and whispers in her ear and she stays where she is.“What's gotten into you?” Rainya demands, so many of her bodies are standing between the two of you that you can hardly see Kaelyn, maybe that's the point.The anger leaves, and shame and remorse fill its place. You almost hit Rainya...you can't...you wouldn't hurt her, ever.You did hit Kaelyn though, you threw the first punch, she just made you so angry though and she...only blocked your attacks and never tried to hit you back. What...what did you just do?
You can see Kaelyn, wary and battered, but unbroken. You see Rainya, her face showing fear and worry. You see Lirael, her face pale and biting her bottom lip, you see Dev, his habitual calm shattered, his hand on Liraels shoulder even as his other holds the stock of his laser rifle, ready to bring it to bear, fear plain on his face.And you see Lorkua, cold, calm, and ready to fight whomever you tell him to.Your tentacle, just inches sway from hitting Rainya, trembles just a little, if you hadn't snapped out of it, what would have happened? Rainya is standing there blocking your view of Kaelyn, her arms open wide, ready to simply step in front of your strike, making no attempt to defend herself. What do you do?>Cry>Tell everyone you're pregnant>Apologise to Kaelyn>Tell Rainya to step aside, keep hitting Kaelyn until she has been properly punished (anger)>Wipe everyone's memories – the last few minutes didn't happen (lowers Family and Ichor Favour, but raises Baalzamon favour)>Other (?)
>>44137311>Cry>Tell everyone you're pregnant>Apologise to Kaelyn
>>44137311>Cry>Tell Kaelyn you're not her father and you're not gonna become him. No matter how much she tries to look for it.Not gonna apologize, she crossed a line hard.
>>44137311>Wipe everyone's memories – the last few minutes didn't happen (lowers Family and Ichor Favour, but raises Baalzamon favour)
>>44137311>Run, disappear into the farthest reaches of your realm. You...can't deal with them right now.
>>44137311>Wipe everyone's memories – the last few minutes didn't happen (lowers Family and Ichor Favour, but raises Baalzamon favour)This is reasonable.
>>44137311>Cry>Apologise to Kaelyn
>>44137311>Cry>Apologise to Kaelyn, but she shouldn't have said that.>Tell Kaelyn you're not her father and you're not gonna become him. No matter how much she tries to look for it.
>>44137311>>Cry>Apologise to Kaelyn
>>44137311>Cryand >>44137399I'm definitely not hoping we can spend a thread as one of the others as they search Shee's physics-broken realm for her, nope.
>>44137457The realm isn't actually physics broken, we never got that upgrade. We've never gotten any of the realm upgrades.
>>44137489It will be once she has fled into it driven by grief and warped it to reflect her feelings of desperation and fear of losing her family.
>>44137311Yell at Kae more. This is jealousy and fear and she's pretending it's a morals thing.
>>44137555>Yell at Kae more. This is jealousy and fear and she's pretending it's a morals thing.You and I know that, but I don't think Shee is in a mindset coherent enough to get that out right now.
Cry + Apologise it is, writing.
>>44137566Really it's not Kae being a total cunt? Are you insane? She's been doing this sort of evil shit her whole fucking life and now it's bad because Shee is doing it to fae.
>>44137600>Really it's not Kae being a total cunt?She is being a total cunt about it, but this is definitly about her fear of Shee turning out to be just using her like her father did and lingering resentment towards Rainya for winning the Sheebowl.
>>44137311>Hug Rainya>Cry into her shoulder>mumble "I'm pregnant" into her shoulder once we start calming down.
>>44137600Kae can't actually do this sort of thing.
>>44137600>Really it's not Kae being a total cunt? Are you insane? She's been doing this sort of evil shit her whole fucking life and now it's bad because Shee is doing it to fae.Actually Kae doesn't have any meaningful mental influence powers outside of Oreia.And while she is and has always been a cunt about losing against Rainya, mostly because she can't wrap her head around the why she lost, this is definitly more about her deep seated fear of being betrayed by people she trusts.Which is not 'completly' unreasonable, to be fair. She just crossed the line into pettyness when she dragged Rainyia into it.
>>44137311>>Wipe everyone's memories – the last few minutes didn't happen (lowers Family and Ichor Favour, but raises Baalzamon favour)
>>44137637When we first met her she turned on an aura of love me and forgot about it, she may not have ment to but she did it.
>>44137734>When we first met her she turned on an aura of love me and forgot about itActually that was just her natural looks doing it, she forgot to keep ON her disguise.
>>44137734Nope, thats what that massive Fellowship bonus looks like from the other end.Its not actually mental influence anymore than Shees Charisma of the King of Hell is.
>>44137794>>44137832OK then as we've felt what it's like I would like to beleave we can see her point of view and change our ways.I happen to agree with Kae that we use it when we don't need to but in part I think that's down to not having anyone we can send as a proxi to do stuff like cut deals for us and to Shee this is the easest way to keep a problem solved.
You...you almost hurt Rainya. You can't do that. You most definitely cannot do that.“Rainya I-” that's all you manage to croak out before you start crying; tears rolling down your cheeks.Everyone freezes, then the Rainyas closes to you swarm you and bury you in hugs. You hear her murmuring soft reassurances in your ear. You simply hold onto her for...how long you don't know.When you've calmed down enough to think, you lift your heard from Rainyas shoulder and wipe the tears from your face.Looking at Kaelyn you say in a raspy voice “Kaelyn I'm sorry, I never meant, to, I mean, I don't know what came over me...I'm sorry.”Dev asks “what happened?”Kaelyn doesn't speak, she just looks unsure, so you answer, haltingly at first, replaying the conversation.When you get to the but about Kaelyn accusing you of controlling Rainya's mind, all the Rainyas holding you go tense.“She said what?!” Rainya asks, then turns to Kaelyn “you said what?” the question coming from several mouths at once, a clear sign Rainya is agitated.Kaelyn has the decency to look ashamed “Well, she might” she says with a mixture of defiance and doubt.“If Shee hadn't hit you I would have!” Rainya yells “Shee has put her life on the line for you Kae, she went up against your father just to save your stupid, bitchy ass and this is how you repay her? By throwing around wild accusations?!”You hold onto the Rainyas around you “Rainya, it's ok” you say “I get what Kaelyn was thinking, I don't agree with it but she has reason to be worri-”“You hypocritical slut!” Rainya screams at Kaelyn “the worst fight Shee and I ever had was because you were messing with my head!” you find yourself having to hold Rainya back “where in the Hells do you get off accusing Shee of-”
Kaelyn holds her hands up in surrender “I'm sorry, I'm sorry ok” she says, looking unhappy “I just, look I've just seen some noble fae do this sort of thing and I got scared and-”“And you forgot that Shee is a hundred times better than those-” Rainya starts building up to a rant but you squeeze her a little to get her attention.“Enough” you say, your voice calmer now “We were both in the wrong, I'm, sorry, Kaelyn is sorry, let it go Rainya.”Rainya rolls her eyes but shuts up. You approach Kaelyn “I'm sorry” you say again, “I shouldn't have hit you.”Kaelyn looks ready to start crying too “I'm sorry” she says, her voice choked up as she rushes at you and hugs you “I should trust you, I know you're not like the nobles I knew I just got scared and stupid” She's crying into your shoulder now “I'm sorry Shee.”XXXSome time later, after you've both calmed down, you walk Rainya way from the others, she's still a little steamed about Kaelyn and is grumbling under her breath.“Rainya” you say, trailing your fingertips down her cheek to get her attention “Apollyon to Rainya.”Rainya snorts “what?” she says with a half-smile.You take a deep breath, how to tell her this “I uh, I have powers that um, tell me how my body is doing and, um....”Rainya gives you a confused look.“Yesterday before we came here I noticed I was pregnant” you blurt it out. Rainyas eyes go wide and her jaw drops.You keep talking, well, babbling “and I thought we'd been so careful especially when you decided to try using your shapechanging powers to grow a erm- anyway I thought I had controlled my hormone cycle but I think maybe some of my powers battle against each other and maybe overrode them and-”You break off as Rainya gulps, tries to get some words out and fails, then tries again “what?” she says in a whisper “say it again”“I'm pregnant” you say to her.“Oh” says Rainya, her eyes unfocused, looking at nothing “Is it uh, mine?”
“Of course its yours” you say, rolling your eyes “you're the only one for me, who else could they possibly belong to?”Rainya nods, her eyes still unfocused, then a silly-looking grin starts to spread across her face “I'm going to be a...parent” she says “hahah oh wow, me, I didn't even, wow, wait, they?”Now she's looking at you “they?” she repeats.You nod “six to be precise” you say “though for safety I've put them in what you call my 'extra-dimensional holdall'.”“Six?” Says Rainya, nodding “of course, six” she sounds on the verge of hysteria.“Rainya” You say “are you ok?”Rainya suddenly grins and grabs you, hugging you tight, her body pressed up against yours “our babies” she giggles into your ear “ours, oh Shee, wow, you don't know how happy I am!”You smile, hugging her back “I can guess” you laugh “but right now we-”“Yeah” says Rainya, her mood dropping a little “we're still in it right, of course...”XXXLater you head back to your little group, Rainyas arm around your waist, your around her shoulders. “We've taken the leaders” you tell your friends “but the rest of the facility is still under their control.”“What's the plan?” asks DevWhat is the plan?>Nothing, the leaders obey you, that's enough (exclusive)>Take control of the rest of the fae>Loot the place, take whatever you want>No decisions yet, you need to speak to Lorkua first>Other (what?)XXXAnd that’s it for todays thread.

Also can we only get those during the threads themselves by voting to dedicate a timeslot to developing it?You can also use the psychic activation chambers to do it without spending XPOtherwise you need to roll to succed, so yes, only during in-thread activities.
>>44138626>No decisions yet, you need to speak to Lorkua firstBut all being well.>Loot the place, take whatever you want
>>44138626>No decisions yet, you need to speak to Lorkua first>Other (what?)Let's use the prestige power chambers. All the ones we have the requirements for are really good, and getting them for free would be great.
>>44138626>Loot the place, take whatever you wantThanks for the thread>as well as Aspects descriptions as highlighted at start of threadAspect votes are fine, if something really cool and new comes along, people grab the cool shiny thing. They always do>Next thread will be the last one before hiatus. Paladin of Joy resumes in January.>That mixed feeling about missing Shee already but being hayped as fuck for Mili
>>44138818I think that falls under the "Loot Shit" option.
>>44138818Eh, I'd rather use the timeslot and risk a roll to succeed than a roll to not get fucked up. Also aspect warping, which we probably don't get to do with the chambers.
>>44138869We already blasted the shit out of the chambers with corruption so it might already happen by default if we go in there. Well, a Corruption warp anyway.
>>44138869I could have sworn the roll to not get fucked up only happened if we went through multiple chambers in succession.
Where does everyone stand on trying to recruit the governer? I think we could talk him round once we get rid of any mind control and the pact between the 5 and the Fay should cover letting us keep him.
Shee 4/13xp (9 left) | 20/22FoLxp (2 left) | 8/10FBBxp (2 left)>Feast of Life +1 11 (4xp)>Vi Hyul +4 12 (20FoLxp)>Artifice +2 5 (8FBBxp)Or did people want to get more than that?
>>44138903Pretty sure we didn't corrupt the second tier of chambers.>>44138937There was a roll each time, the DC just increased exponentially for doing them in succession, IIRC. Even if it wasn't that way for the basic chambers, we know the advanced chambers are more dangerous.
>>44138959Wasn't it ruled we can only increase on ething at a time?
>>44138978Skills, feats and stats can only be increased by one each per thread.Supernatural powers are fair game.
>>44138978No, it wasn't. We can only increase each base stat and skill by one per thread max, but that's the only purchase limit other than favour limiting gifts.
>>44138959As I see it we can spend the FbB xp on Artifice or FbB.
>>44138959I want World Humbling Strike. It's massive damage added to our Titanic Form, around a thousand per hit once we have Psyche Shift.
Shee 10/13xp (3 left) | 20/22FoLxp (2 left) | 8/10FBBxp (2 left)>Feast of Life +1 11 (4xp)>Vi Hyul +4 12 (20FoLxp)>Artifice +2 5 (8FBBxp)>World Humbling Strike (6xp)If we can spend FBBxp on focus feats then may as well use the remaining 2 we have for that so we only have to spend 4 normal xp. I can't remember whether or not FBB works for focus feats.
>>44139155World Humbling Strike is 5 XP. Unless the Focus Feat lists one of your Aspects or a power unique to you as a prerequisite, it's an extension of Infernal Focus, receiving the standard -1 XP discount for King Gifts at your current favor level.
>>44139155Can't we split the cost of WHS between FBB and normal xp?
>>44139155Looks good to me. And if we can spend FBB on WHS then I want to do that.>>44139229Awesome. Can we do FBB for it?
Focus feats are current accesable only via a King of Hell Gift, so you can't use Forged by Battle on them.If you got a Jagganatha Focus feat as a gift, then you could buy further Focuds feats using FBB XP
If there is consensus, or no objections, then I will use whichever xp use anons agree on.But for now I must go to sleep.
>>44139155I'd like another rank of artifice (2FBBxp, 2xp) but I guess just two is fine for now if nobody else supports it.
>>44139464Is there any reason to not use as much FBB as we can? I don't know of any reason to save it if we can save normal xp instead.
>>44139632The purpose of that power is to provide less versatile bonus XP, so spending it before regular XP when applicable is correct.
You guys should really listen to Kaelyn every once in awhile. Its only your unchanged friends that can really tell you when you've become the monster you're fighting against
