In your realm you have a number of dragons that you have convinced to follow the rules you have set for them. However a consequence of this is that they come to you to settle dispute that arise between them. Densaug is a young bronze dragon who lives near the territory of Pulbatorad – an older green dragon. Densaug has been raiding into Pulbatorad's territory in an effort to impress another dragon, Sericorax, a chromatic dragon.You've just told him not to, but you wonder if even your command will be enough to dissuade a young dragon (what he thinks is) love. “I don't think you're a traitor to your kind” you tell Densaug, wondering how to phrase this next part “I just think that the way you're trying to attract her regard is risky, and doesn't help the stability of Oreia.”Densaug looks away and tosses his head, but doesn't argue.“If you want Sericorax to like you” you say “there are other ways to do that.”“But done as impressive as raiding an older dragons territory” Densaug quickly counters “I need to do something to prove how powerful I am or she won't even notice me.”Inwardly you sigh, why can't they just work this out without violence...dragons!
“All I'm asking” you say “is that you try something else before Pulbatorad catches you.”“I'm not afraid of him!” says Densaug, standing tall and puffing out his chest in a show of bravado.“Of course not” you agree, trying not to smile “but please, won't you try something else?”Densaug rolls his eyes “like what?”Ah, yes, you're not an expert in draconic courtship rituals, but how hard can it be?What do you suggest he does?>Don't suggest anything, you're not an expert>How about other feats of power like building something impressive? (write-ins for specific tasks)>Suggest he talks to her>Offer to talk to her on his behalf>Give him some sort of task to do on behalf of Oreia to help you and make him look important (write-in suggestions or QM decides)>Other (?)Yes, my trip is different
>>45419452>Give him some sort of task to do on behalf of Oreia to help you and make him look important (write-in suggestions or QM decides)>Raid those weapon deliveries to the local beastmen/orcsI don't even know why we even do this instead of telling him to stop this shit or we declare him fair game for all the other dragons in the vicnity. But if it gets this asinine nonsense over.
>>45419452>Suggest he talks to herIf it doesn't work we just tell Pulbatorad he's free to smack him around and take his shit.
>>45419452>Give him some sort of task to do on behalf of Oreia to help you and make him look important (write-in suggestions or QM decides)>Raid those weapon deliveries to the local beastmen/orcs
>>45419484>>45419535That'd be a great way to get Oisen to hate us and get a bunch of relative innocents killed.
>>45419452>Don't suggest anything, you're not an expert
>>45419558The Trade isn't by Oisen, it only goes through them, and if they get pissy about weapon deliveries to warlike beastmen aimed at threatening our nation get disrupted, then fuck them.
>>45419558If you got a better idea, feel free to share it.
>>45419574It only goes through them, meaning it's their citizens that'd be killed and their profits that would be cut into.
>>45419578That it only goes through them means it will be neither their citizen nor their profit being harmed
>>45419452>Suggest he talks to herThis probably isn't a good option but it's not as stupid and borderline out of character like that other suggestion so it's what I'm voting for.>>45419604They already paid for the weapons and the caravan consists entirely of Oisen citizens.You idiot.
>>45419452> Do something else impressive, like create a farm or something to have a lot of cattle to impress her with, easier than raiding, and it shows he's clever in addition to being strong>Suggest he talks to her
>>45419452>Call him a whiny little faggot.What, you gotta go out and do something mean to someone else to prove you aren't scared? You gonna go out and shoot some crip to prove you bad to your blood friends? Fucking immature faggot.
>>45419611>They already paid for the weapons and the caravan consists entirely of Oisen citizens.They didn't pay for them at all and the caravan consists of cultists of the Lord of Life you idiot.
>>45419634>“They weren't, not specifically” says the general “but they followed the merchants – actually from Oisen - and read their minds and found out that they had been sold the weapons very cheaply in Orlath provided they sell them in the tribal lands.”They are explicitly merchants from Oisen who have already purchased the weapons cheaply from Orlath, as established last thread. The foreign diplomats from the places the LoL has conquered is another plot hook entirely.So good job being illiterate, dumbass.
>>45419611I'm not a fan of the plan, but saying its a bad thing to smack them for their warmongering scheming bullshit is borderline retarded.
>>45419452>>45419566changing to> Do something else impressive, like create a farm or something to have a lot of cattle to impress her with, easier than raiding, and it shows he's clever in addition to being strong>Suggest he talks to her
closing and counting
>>45419651>They are explicitly merchants from Oisen who have already purchased the weapons cheaply from Orlath>he thinks Delax isn't the LoLs bitchHahaha
looks like its suggesting he talk to her, and do something to show he's clever - like amass a lot of cattle/build a farm
>>45419677To be fair, Delax also thinks he isn't the LoLs bitch.He's wrong, but there you go.
>>45419677>He thinks the God of *Orlath* being the Lord of Life's bitch would mean that merchants from *Oisen* are automatically Lord of Life cultists
>>45419701If they are LoL cultists or just assholes who profit from incentiving additional murder and mayhem in the beastlands is a largely semantic point.They are assholes who absolutely do deserve to get eaten by dragons.
>>45419701The assumption this caravan will be "entirely" Osien citizens is extremly naive at best.
>>45419714And if we were Chaotic or just Neutral Good, this would be a good reason.We're Lawful Good though, so we don't let dragons eat people just for being warmongering profiteering assholes.Its a bit of a shame, admittely, but thats why we got a evil twin.
>>45419714>The merchants are kinda assholes, so it's fine for the LG paladin of life to sic a dragon on themNot everyone in a caravan is necessarily a merchant anyway. There are guards, and often enough just travelers along for the safety, especially if passing through a place like the tribal lands.>>45419733It's still an Oisen-backed caravan, so the point stands that it would sour relations. You're right though, that was stupid of me to say and I don't even know why I said it, but some Orlathians/undead spies/whatever being there still wouldn't justify a dragon raid.
>>45419822>so the point stands that it would sour relationsEh, dragons raid shit. No one can blame us for a dragon attacking a bunch of orcs or beastmen just because some merchants, who didn't really have a good explainable reason to be there at all, got caught in the crossfire.
I really should have prewritten this next bit, going to be a little while finishing it. Thanks for your patience.
>>45419861I guess, but it still feels out of character to me even if there wouldn't be backlash. I don't think they'd have to really explain why they were there beyond "profit" given that they already have a reputation as the greedy merchant stereotype on a national scale.
>>45419951>but it still feels out of character to meBasically my reason for not voting for it.Its practical, pragmatic and effective, but not Sireyi.
>Paladin of Joy 79>It's time to end the Killing FrostHappening
>>45419977Its not gonna happen in a long-ass time if we keep being distracted with piddly side-tasks like this.We still need a lot of prep, like finding a place in the elemental plane of fire to kill the forst in to avoid the global winter.
>>45419977>>45419999>Paladin of Joy Quest 42>Surely there must be an easier way to mass produce magic items, and Bokins test of adulthood awaits.'bout that.
>>45420019Well, it was a accurate description, its still waiting.
>>45420014I caught them all.>>45420019To be fair, it did await. And kept right on awaiting.
“Rather than showing her strength by raiding” you suggest “why not show her how smart you are.”Densaug gives you a sceptical look as you continue “I mean rather than having to hunt for your food all the time for example, how about accumulating a herd of cattle or other animals for yourself. Rather than raiding for treasure, why not trade?”Densaug pulls a face “but that's, that's...” he seems to struggle for words.“What, difficult?” you say with a smile “I thought the point was to show her that you could do things others couldn't.”“It's not how dragons normally court one another” he grumbles.“So you'll stand out compared to all the other dragons.” you point out, adding “you could also try talking to her – see if she's interested in you at all, see if she's the right one for you.”“And if I don't?” asks Densaug sullenly.“I can't have dragons in my realm fighting” you say to Densaug firmly “Just try it, please?”“All right” he gives in with poor grace, flapping his wings in irritation “I'll give it a try, ok.”“Thank you Densaug” you say, favouring him with a brilliant smile “It'll work out, I'm sure.”You leave Densaug thinking over how to show off his intelligence to his prospective mate and head home.It's late in the day and you return to find Isla in the midst of trying to get the triplets to sit still long enough to eat their dinner. You spend a pleasant few hours with your children and wife, not having to deal with politics or annoying dragons or the fate of the world. You can sense that Isla has something on her mind; after dinner and playtime and several stories you finally get the triplets off to bed and once the place is quiet, you manage to talk to her.“A good day at the forest?” you ask her. Most days Isla is at the elemental forest: overseeing research there, as well as the occasional empowerment of those that meet the required standards.
“Compared to dealing with those three” says Isla, leaning back in a tall chair in one of your sitting rooms in your house, a cup of heated wine in her hands “it was positively peaceful. I only had a runaway fire elemental, three miscasting wands and a student who drank a mixture of magical potions on a dare – he should be fine in a day or two and I'm sure living as a female minotaur for a little while will certainly broaden his horizons.”You snort, sipping your own wine, leant against your desk, gazing at your wife “what's on your mind?” you ask her.Isla gives you a look you'd expect from Jal “You in lots of different ways” she says, a purr in her voice.But you know a deflection when you see one “I'm flattered” you say “but really, what's bothering you?”Isla sighs, looks moody and then says “The Killing Frost. I think it's time we destroyed it.”“Go on” you say, willing to hear her out.“We have the Gem” she says “you've got the Scythe and the agents of the Lord of Life are infiltrating nearby realms. We don't have much longer before his forces arrive. Rather than facing them both at once, isn't it time to take out the Killing Frost first?”You go still, before saying quietly “if we do, a lot of people will die.”Isla gives you a long searching look “that bothers you” she says doesn't it?”You take a long, deep breath “yes” you admit “I can't protect everyone and there will be some I can't bring back. I know that eventually I'll have to face them, but I think for the first time in a long time I'm scared. Not for me, but for those I love: you, Jal, Sofia, all of our children. Our friends too – to say nothing of the ordinary people of Oreia, Dalvin and elsewhere. If I attack the Killing Frost I know a lot of them will want to come, and some will die, I don't want to lose anyone Isla.” Left unsaid is how much it hurt when you almost lost Isla to that thing.
Isla expression softens and she says gently “Sireyi my love if you wait it'll just be much worse, you know that.”You nod mutely as she continues “if you have to face both at once it'll be a harder battle and more people will die.”She's right, you know she's right. You've put this off far to long, and you can't let fear rule.“All right” you say “We move against him, but there are practical issues.”“Which are?” Isla knows them as well as you, but you are grateful that she's letting you order your thoughts.“Firstly” you say “the attack: The Killing Frost is drawing an army of ice elementals and creatures that thrive in the cold: white dragons, frost wyrms, ice demons – all kinds of things. I could go with a small party, a medium-sized strike force of say, angels and dragons or even bring a whole army, each has its own advantages and risks.”“Secondly” you continue “whilst I'm away the Lord of Life or Delax or a demon lord could strike at Oreia, I need someone here who is a big enough threat to warn them off. If I ask Velya or Konig that could leave their own realms vulnerable. I need someone who can defend my realm whilst I am away.”“How about your twin?” asks Isla in a neutral tone. Despite your sister being on your side...Isla doesn't really like her “Or Slagredeth?” she suggests. “The Azure Empress will want to come with” you point out “And my alliance with Slagredeth is new – how much can we truly trust him?”“So what then?” asks Isla. You shrug “In the morning I guess I'll go and talk to those who might be strong enough to warn foes away from my realm, but tonight” you stalk towards her and lean over her. You bend down to kiss her – a long, lingering kiss “tonight” you whisper “all that's on my mind, is you.”In the morning, who will you approach first about guarding your realm?>Velya>Konig>Syderis>Azure Empress>Slagredeth>Other (?)
>>45420237I'm torn between Syderis and Azure.Velya is too busy, Slagradeth too evil, Konig too Konig.Azure is busy with her own realm, but would probably have the easiest time dealing with the Oreians, being basically demonic herself, and she has the right attiutde.Mom is the only one who isn't otherwise urgently busy, but I'm not sure how well she would get along with a bunch of succubus citizens.>Syderis
>>45420237>SyderisMom got this.
>>45420237I wonder, could we just burn a lot of Deific Power and kind of piggyback a surge of Life energy along with the gigantic outpouring of elemental cold to counteract or overpower the side effect of the Killing Frost dying without having to use the gem?>>45420273IIRC, Syderis believes strongly in redemption and supported her daughter's decision in forming Oreia, but it has been a long time.
>>45420302>I wonder, could we just burn a lot of Deific Power and kind of piggyback a surge of Life energy along with the gigantic outpouring of elemental cold to counteract or overpower the side effect of the Killing Frost dying without having to use the gem?Might work
>>45420302>IIRC, Syderis believes strongly in redemption and supported her daughter's decision in forming Oreia, but it has been a long time.Syderis was more than sceptical about the whole succubutt nation thing, but I'm more worried about her Redemption zeal. We made a point out of not leaning hard on anyone to seek Redemption. Syderis might see that different and upset a lot of people.
>>45420318How much Deific Power can we estimate that to take?
>>45420339I wonder how she's doing. Time goes faster over there, doesn't it?And that ice giant tribe we avoided like plague due to yurifags could have some interesting things to say if they weren't mindfucked by frost entirely.
>>45420399It depends how much of the Killing Frosts power it has when it dies.Killing it too early could result in a very big explosion of elemental cold.Wearing it down and making it expend its power would result in an event that is much easier to contain.
>>45420438In our exploration, did we find any zones on the Elemental Plane of Fire that weren't claimed by any elemental lord?
>>45420453YesBut they may or may not be big enough depending upon how much power the Killing Frost has when it dies.
>>45420467I'm starting to get the feeling we're supposed to draw out the fight.
>>45420467>But they may or may not be big enoughThats not really a problem, I figured more they might make a good place for a extended fight if we want to go with anons plan of using DP against his death-effect.
>>45420473Its a trade-off, as often in this quest.We could have a easy fight killing him very fast, but have to deal with the catastrophic fallout of doing so. Or we make it hard for ourselves, and fight it down the hard way, but minimize broader casualties.
>>45420498I know I'd like to minimize casualties, and I think Sireyi would do her best to cause as little fallout as possible.
>>45420521>I know I'd like to minimize casualties, and I think Sireyi would do her best to cause as little fallout as possible.Thats the plan, otherwise we would have killed him already a year ago.
>>45420453>>45420467How about hells with lots of fire and a poor record on sucubuss care?
Mind control used to do naughty things to Siri's kids when?
>>45420741I don't think I want to give Demon Lords a prime opportunity to stab Sireyi in the back while she is fighting the Killing Frost.And if we teleport him there right before the finishing blow, we'd be turning currently hostility into outright war, which we can't really afford with the innumerable enemies we already got.Even if its a cute idea.
>>45420741Might get some succubi or other not-shit demons caught in the cold explosion.
You wake with Isla in your arms, and are able to enjoy a few minutes just gazing at her sleeping face, so calm and peaceful, before the triplets decide its time to greet the new day by invading your bed.After eating breakfast with your family you use your powers to travel to Velya's Heaven: a pair of helpful souls there direct you to where your mother is teaching a group of young angels the finer points of negotiating with elementals.You wait patiently for her to finish her lecture and then you approach once she has the angels split into small groups, discussing the points she put forth.“Sireyi!” she says with a happy smile, greeting you with a kiss on the cheek and a hug “my beloved daughter, how are you? How are your wives? How are my grandchildren? Why do you so rarely bring them to visit?”“You saw the triplets just last week mother” you point out mildly “but I can arrange for them to come more often if you'd like.”“I'm teasing” she assures you with a smile “without the children, I assume this isn't a social visit?”You nod reluctantly, and start to explain...Syderis just lets you talk as you stroll slowly away from her open-air classroom, when you're done she says “of course I'd much rather be with you when you fight the Killing Frost, but I know that someone must stay behind. I would be happy to, how long do you need me for?”“That depends upon what forces I take” you say “if I just take a few allies it could be over in a day, if I take an army then just getting there could take weeks or months if I travel with them.”“Well, however long you need me, I'm happy to help” says Syderis “I'm always willing to help family, and the succubi you rule could benefit from some direct tutelage in how to do Good.”Ah, yes, there's the one tiny flaw in your plan.“If you were in charge of Oreia” you ask mildly “what would you do?”
Syderis shoots you an amused glance, as if she knows what's on your mind “well I approve of the parliament of course” she says “it's good to let folks rule themselves and tyranny never helps. Mostly I'd just let them sort themselves out.”“Mostly?” you ask, raising an eyebrow.“Mostly” she says “daughter I love you and I am so very proud of what you've done.”“But....?” you ask.“But you're too laid back sometimes” your mother says “showing others the path to righteousness is all well and good but sometimes a little encouragement is needed, a push in the direction of Good.”“Such as?” you want to get an idea of what she'd do if she was in charge of Oreia.“Such as making certain evil acts punishable by having to do public services” says your mother brightly “such as making a necromancer who animates bodies without prior permission have to spend time cleaning the streets or weeding graveyards to teach them better respect for others.”You have a few necromancers amount your succubi, and the Tribal Lands have plenty of orc and beastmen bodies buried in shallow graves. Such a rule would be difficult to enforce and would only annoy people. Your mothers intentions are good but she could be a real trial for your citizens.“Anyway” your mother adds “I'm sure you have lots to do – such as talking to the rulers of the mortal kingdoms or the Kings of the Elemental Courts of the plane of Fire about recruiting allies – let me know if you need help with them and I'll be there to help with Oreia whenever you need me.”Are you sure you want Syderis in charge of Oreia whilst you're away?>Y/NAnd where to next?>Talk to mortal rulers about the plan>Visit Elemental plane of fire for allies and pick place to dispose of the Killing Frost>Talk to the dragons on your realm, get them ready>Gather your closest allies and make a plan of attack>Other (?)
>>45420807That goddess you've been trying to spy on drops a fuck huge ice elemental on your doormat and kills it then tells you to BTFO.Time for out right war.>>45420829Not shit people will be hurt whatever we do unless we can find a place that needs cold.
>>45420965>YWe kinda lack options but>Remind her HEAVILY that Oreia is not a Autocracy, any change in law needs to be passed by the parliament. Bueraucracy should stall her long enough to get back and fix whatever she tried to break.>Visit Elemental plane of fire for allies and pick place to dispose of the Killing Frost
>>45420965>Y>No establishing a Lawful Good dictatorship while I'm gone mom. Please.>Visit Elemental plane of fire for allies and pick place to dispose of the Killing Frost

Bueraucracy should stall her long enough to get back and fix whatever she tried to break.>Visit Elemental plane of fire for allies and pick place to dispose of the Killing Frost
>>45421021She's going to fuck things up and declare that she's right. It's going to be fantastic.
>>45420979The other demon lords would take it as a pretty severe act of aggression and move into the war prep phase, start allying with each other, that sort of thing. Demon lords also tend to be spiteful cockmonglers, so the one we dropped it on would almost certainly pool his remaining resources into screwing us over.
>>45420965>N>She's supposed to GUARD the place, not RULE it.>Talk to the dragons on your realm, get them ready>Gather your closest allies and make a plan of attack

Y but talk to parliamentplane of fire, writing
Is it wrong that the thing about getting rid of the Forst I'm most hype about is Sireyi finally having the chance to get pregnant herself?
>>45421214Its wrong, but also very typical for this quest.
>>45421214I'm slightly more hype for finally ridding the world of that evil git and freeing the world from winter's grasp, but that's a close second.
>>45421081We should try and present it as "you've pissed me off so now I'm giving you a slap" as we've taken down Hell Lords before this is more of a cat hissing at you than an attack and if we do face an alliance we could probably turn them against each other by saying "only 3 of you need to die, I'll let you sort out which 3 that is." and waiting for their Evil to do it's thing.
>>45420965>>Y>Visit Elemental plane of fire for allies and pick place to dispose of the Killing Frost
>>45421281Unleashing a massive and years long super winter over someone is not just giving them a slap. Its a nuclear option.
So I've got a question, I know that Sireyi's sister and Slagredeth can't gain their own deific power (I think) but can they gain their own domains?
>>45421318Depending on when we kill him, it's possible it could be sub-arctic conditions for decades.
>>45421326Think it was stated that Avatars have the domains of the Deity that empowers them.
>>45421318We're immortal, they're immortal, a few years is not too bad all things considered.
>>45421346That's kind of interesting, can they "graduate" from avatar status?
>>45421391Its a bad thing for the inhabitants of those planes, especially the slaves etc. that will be used up even harder to weather the harsher conditions.
>>45421413If they get a genuine divine spark of their own
>>45421432As I said >>45420979 there will be people who suffer where ever we do this, I'm fine with being proven wrong but if it comes down to pissing off the plane of fire or hell then I'm all for the one that lets us make a bad Devil may care joke.
>>45421538>there will be people who suffer where ever we do thisNot necessarily, that is exactly why we took the time to scout out a good place to do it.
>>45421538Except we're specifically going to look for a place in the plane of fire where that won't happen, or where it'll happen less than shooting it off in a random place in a hell, and since the plane of elemental fire is, well, yeah, the effect should be less severe than in any hell and last for a shorter period of time.
>>45421564>>45421574OK well good luck to us on this and if we can't then you know how I plan to vote.
>>45421626I would vote for using the gem.
>>45421626I'd vote for the gem over a hell. We don't need that bullshit and in spite of your attempts to justify that idiotic plan, it would result in massive backlash even beyond the normal consequences.
>>45421664>to justify that idiotic planI wouldn't go sofar to call it idiotic, I can see the merit from a certain perspective, and someone only slightly more callous and reckless than Sireyi might do it too.But, yeah, as said above.
I've got another odd question, could the Scythe be re-forged into a slightly less shit shape for a weapon? Because scythes honestly horrible designs, which doesn't matter a whole lot but still.
>>45421694Starting a war on another front when we're already going to be fighting an eldritch horror in short order goes a little beyond reckless.
>>45421735Well, if we do that we might as well use the opportunity to also reck the local demon lord. That seemed like a given to me.Which, if we pick the right one, won't get us more problems then the last time.
>>45421639>>45421664I forgot we had the gem, how many souls can it hold? It's probably a better call than hell.
“Thank you mother” you say “but whilst you're looking after Oreia, please make any changes through parliament; I set it up for a reason and they need to work out how to be good themselves.” Parliament rarely agrees on anything and should be capable of delaying or at least filtering your mothers requests.“Of course my daughter” she says, patting you on the cheek, making you feel like a small child for a moment “I'm sure I can convince them to see things my way though.”You regret you won't be around to see how your mother handles the chaotic mess that is parliamentary debate, or the orgy it sometimes descends into.“About the Kings of the Elemental Plane of Fire” you say to your mother “I've been meaning to ask your advice on which are the best ones to approach...”XXXA short time later, after a long discussion with your other you approach the gates of one of the lords of the Elemental Plane of Fire: King Volcaj.King Volcaj is a very old elemental, and whilst his kingdom is not the largest, he commands the respect of the other kings and if he was your ally then the other kings are likely to help you out. He's also old enough to have fought the Killing Frost thousands of years ago.Your name and a showing of wings and halo is enough for the guards at the gates of Volcaj's fortress to show you into his throne-room. You do feel various detection and divination spells being cast upon you as you wander through walls formed of volcanic rock.You let enough of the spells get through your defences to let them know who you are, but you block the more intrusive ones with ease.
Volcaj's throne room is massive: many elementals grow in size as they gain power and Volcaj's is one of them. He appears as a 100ft-tall vaguely humanoid mass of fire, the flames that make up his body are of all sorts of colours. He breaks off arguing with a bunch of fire elementals half his size and says “welcome Sireyi, daughter of Syderis, we are honoured by your presence.” He gestures with one huge hand to a platform set high up in the wall, about head height for him, and large enough for a crowd to stand on. You fly up to the platform where he clearly receives human-sized guests.After exchanging a few pleasantries you get down to business “The Killing Frost” you say “it's loose on my plane and I intend upon ending it, but I need somewhere to do so that won't result in half of my plane turning to ice.” “Ah yes that thing!” bellows Volcaj, what you took to be an enthusiastic greeting is just the way he talks it seems: very loudly in a voice of roaring flame.“Why it was aeons ago that I fought that cold monster” recounts Volcaj “I was but a mere inferno, barely bigger than you are now. I was in the army of King Cambust and we...”You listen politely to what you hope is a short anecdote, but as he keeps talking you realise you need to steer this conversation back on track.“I intend to finish it once and for all” you say “any help you can give will be much appreciated.”King Volcaj doesn't seem upset that you interrupted him, instead he merely chuckles and says “help I can give you gladly: just say and I'll have a legion of my hottest troops at your command. As for a place to cast the things body, well there are a few possibilities.”“Which are?” you ask. You wonder how much trouble this is going to be.“My realm is large enough that I could clear a space for you” he says “move my subjects some-place else, though it would be a great imposition on them and I would ask for a small favour in return.”
“Such as?” You ask dryly“Oh a small thing” he assures you “a trinket of mine was taken by sa lord of the Elemental Plane of Earth – a bracelet of bronze inset with rubies.”You wonder what sort of trouble that you bring, plus merely the thought of visiting the Plane of Earth makes you feel sick.“Or?” you ask.“I'm having trouble with a neighbouring lord” he says congenially “if the Killing Frost were dropped on a certain fortress of his, I could easily take his lands and make him swear to me as vassal.” Thus winning a war for him, and gaining you the enmity of a Lord of Fire.“Any other ideas?” you ask.Volcaj shrugs “near my borders is a lot of wilderness” he says “cold by our standards but still hot to you. Drop him there and you'd trouble no one...except the Efreeti Merchants guild as you could disrupt some of their trade routes but...merchants, pah!” he says with contempt.It seems he's happy to help...as long as he gets something out of it.What are you going to do with the Killing Frosts body?>Drop it in Volcaj's kingdom (agree to do him a favour)>Use it to destroy a fortress>Drop it on the kingdoms borders>I've found my own place to drop it in the wilderness (who knows what you might disturb though)>I haven't decided yet>Other (?)
>>45421839>I've found my own place to drop it in the wilderness (who knows what you might disturb though)
>>45421839>Drop it in Volcaj's kingdom (agree to do him a favour)Sounds like a good job for the Belt Notchers.
>>45421839>>Drop it in Volcaj's kingdom (agree to do him a favour)>>45421879good idea
>>45421839>Drop it on the kingdoms bordersOptimally we don't need to unleash its cold anyway, we need a battle place that only in emergency can take the cold
>>45421879>>45421904"So I said elemental plane of rock? I thought you said elemental plane of co-"Sorry that one just had to be said
>>45421839>Drop it in Volcaj's kingdomLet's get the favour done before the battle.
>>45421839>Drop it on the kingdoms borders
>>45421839Can we have a Peception check on if he's lying about that trinket being his?
>>45421945>Let's get the favour done before the battle.We would have to by necessity, but it would delay our actions by however long it takes to steal the thing and we have no ide ahow long that is, seems extremly suboptimal compared to just not having to do anything and being able to do it right now.
>>45421936 All the more reasons to delegate this one to the succubutt depth squad.
>>45421936Stay classy Oreia.
>>45422031I think that since we're a literal angel and he probably fought alongside our mom against this thing thousands of years ago and hates it, he'd accept the promise for the time being, though some confirmation one way or the other would be nice.

“I'd be happy to have someone recover what was taken from you King Volcaj” you say smoothly. The Belt Notchers need to be kept busy otherwise they get bored and cause trouble after all.You'd thought their newest member would be enough to keep them entertained but...anyway, a problem for another day.The King gives you a look that's hard to read, given that his face is made of flames, but you think he's grinning at you, maybe.You wonder what you've just signed the Belt Notchers up for as he says “excellent! I will start moving my people straight away – I have no doubt the daughter of Syderis will pay her debts.”What next?>Talk to mortal rulers about the plan>Talk to the dragons on your realm, get them ready>Gather your closest allies and make a plan of attack>Other (?)Switching to Mini Paladin but please still vote on this one – will be OP of next thread.
>>45422393>Gather your closest allies and make a plan of attack
>>45422409Assuming this isn't the "done with recruiting, move on to final prep" option, that is.
>>45422393>Talk to the dragons on your realm, get them ready
>>45422443it is not, but it is about deciding who is coming, how big an army are you taking etc.But you won't jump straight into the attack afterwards.
>>45422393>>Gather your closest allies and make a plan of attack
>>45422393>Gather your closest allies and make a plan of attackNot even sure yet if we want or need the dragons and mortal rulers involved.I would prefer the dragons stay in Oreia in case something happens in our absence.

Plan it is
You are Milerna Jalweyen, angel-blooded and born paladin of Konig. You are 9 years old, and are attending paladin training at a church of Konig school.http://pastebin.com/RE8br4ufYou're still trying to get Thomas out of some sort of silly training club. He needs to beat a four-on-two fight before he can leave.Fortunately, thanks to Chesi's quick thinking, at least the bully's have backed off a bit outside of club hours.Also Thomas is still worried that he now has to marry Chesi – which is pretty funny!For the rest of the day the bullies don't bother Thomas, and retreat whenever Chesi is around. Maybe she needs to stick with him?The thought of telling Thomas this as a permanent solution makes you giggle.During classes you think about a solution that doesn't require Chesi to stick to Thomas all the time but can't really think of any good ones except beating the bully's silly challenge or telling an adult.Hmmm, maybe an adult that can advise you without having to intervene...like Instructor Ophilian or Instructor Tanner – they both might be trustworthy.You leave your last class of the day, with Chesi chatting away at your side, and Thomas at your other side giving her worried looks.You wander to one of the study rooms you usually meet your friends at, from within you can hear Gilly and Sera having a conversation – they both sound a little worried.What do you do?>Listen at the door>Go in and talk to them >Go talk to Instructor Ophilian>Go talk to Instructor Tanner>Other (?)Chesi and Thomas, sitting in a tree...
>>45422662>Go in and talk to them
>>45422662>Go talk to Instructor Tanner
>>45422662>Go in and talk to themTanner is probably the better person to talk to about this, even if she is less trustworthy than Phili
>>45422662>Listen at the door
>>45422662>>Go in and talk to them
talking it is, writing
Mama Sofia always says being honest and asking questions is the best way, although Mama Jal laughs when Mama Sofia says that.You head into the room, followed by Thomas, and Chesi, who keeps trying to slip her arm through Thomas' arm, resulting in him walking into you as he tries to get away from her.You catch the last bit of what Gilly is saying, before she suddenly starts talking about other stuff as she notices that you are there “-don't let him have anything or he'll want all of y-Oh Hi Mili, Thomas, Chesi.”“What're you talking about?” you ask Gilly and Sera, looking from face to face, trying to figure out what's going on.“Oh, nothing important” says Gilly dismissively “right Sera?”“Uh right” says Sera, but she looks worried “just school stuff.”Ugh, this is like when grown-ups talk over your head! It's annoying, you're not stupid, and you could help! You're a princess and an angel and a neckymancer – surely one of those things will be useful with whatever it is they're not talking about!Behind you Thomas yells in outrage, you turn to see Chesi with her arms around him, blowing wet raspberry's on his neck.“Get off!” yells Thomas, As Gilly and Sera both laugh. Chesi says between raspberry's “what's the matter fiancée of mine?”They both look pretty silly. Jenny and Michael will be along soon, and Gilly and Sera offered to help you all with various homework assignments. But what should you do...About Sera and Gilly?>Keep asking about it>Leave it, just study hard>Other (?)Thomas and Chesi>Encourage Chesi>Leave it: Thomas is on his own>Tell Chesi to leave him alone>Other (?)
>>45423283>Leave it, just study hard>Tell Chesi to leave him alone
>>45423283>>Leave it, just study hard>Tell Chesi to leave him alone In a joking way
>>45423283>Keep asking about it>Tell Chesi to leave him alone
>>45423283>Keep asking about it>Encourage Chesi
>>45423283>Keep asking about it>Tell Chesi to leave him alone when not in publicIn a joking way
>>45423283>Leave it, just study hard>Tell Chesi to leave him aloneDon't think its very polite to pry, though these 12 and 9 year olds sure have a lot of romantic trouble
>>45423428It's starting to get kind of obnoxious.
>>45423283>Keep asking about it>Leave it: Thomas is on his ownLet him deal with it, don't be overprotective.
>>45423374>>45423381>>45423398>>45423414Looks like Mili inherited her mothers nosy cockblocking ways and started expanding them to third parties.
>>45423456Looks like somebody's a whiny cunt that doesn't deserve to have an opinion.
>>45423469I was making a joke...
>>45423456>>45423469Looks like two people are arguing over the internet about nothing.
>>45423484Your life is a joke.
>>45423469You're more of one than that anon. >>45423445You must have been a fun kid.
>>45423449>Let him deal with it, don't be overprotective.Its not so much overprotective as that Mili realised during vacation that sucubi are kinda different from humans and Chesi kind of doesn't have a concept of personal space.
>>45423449>don't be overprotective>overprotective>implying its not jealousy
keep asking and tell Chesi to back off it is
>>45423494We can do better than that.
>>45423518That's overprotection. Do you really think Chesi is going to molest or suck him dry?
oh forgot to say, please roll 1d20 to see how good you are at being inquisitive kid
Rolled 14 (1d20)>>45423619
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>45423619

>>45423664it should, but its late and I forgot.I'll use unmodded rolls since everyone has already rolled
>>45423614>Do you really think Chesi is going to molest or suck him dry?No, but she could not realise just how uncomfortable she is making him and hurt their friendship.Of course Chesi knows exactly how uncomfortable she is making him, but Mili is too nice to think like that.
>>45423614Explaining cultural differences isn't being overprotective.
>>45423619>>Keep asking about it>>Leave it: Thomas is on his own
>>45423619Shouldn't Mili Intelligence be>Angelic Brilliance 10 (+0)Or is the 8 already with Angelic Brilliance and its just not listed?
>>45423832Same for Will, but I think its not listed to reflect she doesn't know about having it.
“Chesi leave him alone” you say, putting a hand on her shoulder. Chesi reluctantly unwraps her arms from around Thomas and sinks into a seat, looking moody.Sure enough, Jenny and Michael are soon along and you all start trying to study. Chesi doesn't stay moody for long, soon she's trying to puzzle her way through math problems: her tongue sticking out of the corner of her mouth as she works. She always does that, it looks kinda cute, and silly.Thomas makes sure he's sat away from Chesi and soon Gilly is helping him with his history essay about the invasion of the orcs like 50 years ago or something. It seems he's learning about ancient history.“So who is this person who wants you Sera?” you ask, as she leans over Michaels shoulder to correct his spelling.“What?” she asks distractedly “no Michael you put the o before u.”“Oh” says Michael “you...uh...”“The person who wants you” you say persistently “who is he?”Sera looks at you, she looks scared. Gilly also raises her head and looks at you “It's nothing Mili” she says firmly.“It's not nothing!” you insist “it's something, you just don't want to talk about it which is silly because we could help! You helped Thomas and you're helping us with study but you won't let us help you! That's...that's!” you struggle for the right words “not right” you settle on.Gilly rolls her eyes and looks at Sera, Sera shrugs, then says “ok, but don't tell anyone this, promise?”“Promise” you all chorus, you use a trick Mama Jal taught you and cross your fingers under the table. So it's not a real promise.“There's a teacher that has come from the Church of Yerra” says Sera “A priest. He's offered to help me with my grades. I thought he meant help me study, but he's offered to give me work others have done if I...” her voice trails off and she looks ashamed. Gilly is at her side, putting an arm around her and giving her an encouraging hug.
Sera takes a a deep breath and continues “If I let him have some of my hair and blood – as someone with angel ancestors it would be useful in spells and stuff.” The others look confused, but you know, you know spells and stuff that can use a persons blood to hurt them. Mama Reyi was very clear that you never let anyone have your blood and that your hair was burned after it was cut from you.“Sera isn't going to give him anything though” says Gilly, her arm still around her friend.Sera looks unsure “If I don't” she says “then he might threaten me, or any of you, I don't want to cheat so I could let him have what he wants but then throw away the work he gives me.”“Who is he?” asks Thomas fiercely “we'll sort him out!”“Or better to tell the other instructors” points out Michael in a calmer tone.“Her word against his though” observes Chesi wisely “no proof – maybe if Sera agreed and then we all caught him in the act?”You think hard, what would your Mama's do?>Do nothing, this is Sera's choice>You'll all get him, somehow (Thomas' idea)>Tell the instructors (which?)>Follow Chesi's idea>Other (?)Winning option will OP of next Mini-paladin questNight all, and I hope you enjoyed today's quest.
>>45424141>Tell the instructors (which?)Tanner
>>45424141>Tell the instructors (which?)Not sure which but even as a rumor from students this is a major issue that the instructors should take seriously.

>>45424141>>Tell the instructors (which?)

>>45424265>and my anonkun questHuh?So you finally get to write that smut quest I take it?
>>45424288>Implying he hasn't wound up running the one quest on Anonkun which is universally anti-smut
>>45424265>and my anonkun questwhat is it?
>>45424288>So you finally get to write that smut quest I take it?That was the plan, players are quite skilled at avoiding smut so far.
>>45424288Somewhat. Anons are avoiding the smut, for some autistic reason.
>>45424265>and my anonkun questA shame but I guess its understandable you got bored of these after all this time.
>>45424141>You want nothing to do with that, we'll help any way we can.>Could you point him out to me please? (use Sight of Konig)
>>45424306>>45424312>>45424313I'm just holding out for ice dragon husbando

>>45424382>I do have a short attention span its true.I can't say its "short" given for how long PoJ has been running.
