The Raiders – Part 12It is a fact that anyone who has spent more than a few minutes with you quickly realizes you have an intense interest in glass and jewels.Rana Najla is no exception, of course. Bare as you are, you still posses your jewelry, and that is almost entirely of glass with a few gems more as accent to that than the focus of the fine crafting. Your bracers, the heavy torc, the delicate glass filigree amulet with the gem caged within, the rings you sport, almost a weapon-weight in glass and nearly a hands-weight in gemstones painstakingly selected and on occasion re-cut.There is a small satchel or pouch in every holding you have that contains a variety of gems and jewels, and there are decorous pieces of hand crafted glass both for personal decoration, household décor, and a few pieces for personal use and play as well. There are even weapons and armor of stuff as similar to glass as you could find: void glass, blood crystal, and even enchanted glass-steel, though much of that is in your armory and your forge rather than places you live.The length of golden chain wrapped about your hand is what brings up this peculiar topic, for the end is bare of decoration, and a small globe or sphere of class would be both decorative and useful at the end of the length of chain that attaches to the shimmering collar of gold-studded black leather that Rana wears in addition to the black silk of her billowing leggings and halter-top. Her cuffs too are fastened with gold, though it is undoubtedly an alloy or perhaps enchanted.
Then again, she is peculiarly proud of her status as a slave to the efreet that fathered her, so it may be pure and unadulterated gold she wears. It might be softened in the City of Brass that is her home, but it probably wouldn't melt. You doubt she has the physical strength to bend it, though she certainly has the power to do so in her wish-crafting sorcery. At the moment her eyes of flaked topaz and gold are studying your svelte curves and lean frame, naked and devoid of body hair, a fact which interests her greatly, almost as much as teasing your mind-broken and beautiful plaything Mayune had.You smile and move close, your hand coming up to caress her exposed and smooth belly, which is surprisingly muscular despite having spent most of her life in places of weightlessness. Her grace and ease of movement are things of long training and skill; dancing with her proved that well enough to you. She shivers at the touch and arches her back, her toes pointed down and one leg moving slightly higher and more forward than the other, her arms tucked behind her back to present her sleek bosom more proudly. Take her somewhere out of the way for her spanking (just in case you decide on more). Make it a public spectacle for her pleasure (she seems to be the little show off after all). There are a few little things you wish to have handy for aftercare (and to play with). Call Kteine over for lessons in disciplining willing slaves (and to irritate Falna). Write in?

>>1331973Welcome back XS.
>>1331985Yeah, I'm glad that things have cleared up enough for you to run this again!
>>1331967>Wonder if it'd be possible to have her extend the length of her servitude to your dragon, perhaps indefinitevely, without increasing the cost (too much)>Use the occasion to learn all her errogenous zones and all the ways how she likes to have her pleasure spots stimulated, then demonstrate that knowledge extensively, as part of showing her why you're the boss
Hi XS! How are you?Man, Akko really likes dem jewels. I can only be grateful for that, I find ladies wearing a lot of jewelry to be very sexy.Wonder if she's going to be called the Glass Empress, in the material plane.>>1332030Meant to be internaly wondering, in case that was not clear
[X] Make it a public spectacle for her pleasure (she seems to be the little show off after all).[X] Write in? How lovely, how interesting....perhaps interesting enough to actually pay for some extra time. You can find something to interest an efreet lord....With an arch smile you request that Siobhan clothe you in something lovely, a mental request that garners you soft adulation and warm feelings from the Silver Sword that adores you. A shimmering silver blouse and soft, white legged pants are quickly spun from astral material; the sleeves are split but bound by delicate cuffs about your forearms where your bracers begin. The neckline is somewhat high, but the back very low, while she adds a belt of slick, glitter-imbued, white material similar to that she encased poor Yustuoc in. The half-orc slave woman is unbound now, however, a fact you note with interest as you slowly walk backwards, admiring the effect your outfit has upon the ruby-skinned ifrit slave.Following her leash, Rana slides through the air gracefully and without concern for orientation, her own or others' save that she follows you. You purposefully make your way to the cushions where Falna, Schechei, and Auena sit, and Mayune serves them. Siobhan is nearby, though not at hand, and is aware of the goings on, greatly interested in them. She is ignoring her rival blade, Falna's Malnae, in favor of paying attention to Falna's reaction as you call Kteine over silently.Yustuoc is a trembling, bloody, shivering wreck, and will undoubtedly need rest and healing before she's of any real use again. You can take care of it later. Yashi follows Kteine, who is slowly scrubbing her hands clean of blood and other, more sexual fluids. You settle cross legged before the others, as Cyrillian rises to fetch more cordials and treats to serve. Mayune is still trembling your earlier mental abuse of the poor thing weighing heavily on her; the promise of discipline is far too intense to be ignored in her case and you'll probably have to take care of it sooner rather than later.“Rana Najla was rude and earned herself a spanking. I thought that it might be worthwhile to show the young githyanki how such a punishment is delivered.” You lean back slightly, and Rana lands lightly on tip toes, before kneeling (which is a strange process since she is still ignoring gravity – she is more folding herself into position than 'kneeling') and then placing herself on hands and knees over your crossed legs. Offering herself without presuming to know your preferences. That's quite a step up from most slaves you've only just met.Perhaps it might be worthwhile to take her on the little excursion after all – she might be good for teaching your new acquisitions. Petting, petting is nice. Undress her slowly and languidly. Burn away her clothing – it is n't like she'll get burned, after all. Edgeplay....there's something you don't indulge in often. Write in?
>>1332063> Burn away her clothing – it is n't like she'll get burned, after all.Nice and dramatic> Petting, petting is nice.Though if we can work this in that might be nice.
>>1332063> Burn away her clothing – it is n't like she'll get burned, after all.
>>1332063Cyrillian is the not!Yuan-Ti transformed into the shape of a half-elf, and Mayune is the human archmage right?And the reason we're spanking Rana is tied to why we also need to punish Mayune due to Rana trying to tempt Mayune to make wishes?
>>1332063>Undress her slowly>Edgeplay
>>1332073She's not an archmage.>>1332076We should edge the girl until she can't take it anymore
>>1332078I'm... -pretty sure- that isn't what edgeplay means.
>>1332063On second thought I'll add Edgeplay to my vote here >>1332071
>>1332073Yes, and yes. You're spanking Rana because she magically/psychically forced Kteine to reveal things unwillingly. >Inclining your head, you murmur to Kteine, “Well, the Malik's daughter just earned herself a spanking for being rude and mind controlling my acolyte, no matter her intentions – but ultimately, it is still your mind, is it not?” Kteine looks into your eyes, the worry and confusion melting away as she make the decision for herself. She allows the power to enfold her and she speaks clearly and calmly.>“I only wish to be cherished as who and what I am, regardless of whom it is by.” Her cheeks color, and she clenches her fists as you chuckle softly. Yzia laughs as well, amused by Kteine's embarrassment more than her words. A soft cough comes from the doorway, and you turn with raised eyebrows, to see the delicate form of Yashi, accompanying Jiyua, whose arm has been bandaged, though not healed from the look of it. Jiyua has a bundle of books and a pouch of mystic implements over one arm, and she seems confused by the people in the room.>“Though I could grant the illusion of that wish, beautiful warrior, I choose not to do so. You will find what you seek, in time, I have no doubt.”>You glance at Yzia, who smiles wryly and shrugs. “I did warn her, Akko,” she says apologetically. Rana look up at her playmate with some confusion, and then her eyes widen comically and her hair moves in a rush as she looks back at you. Kteine seems to have recovered from her embarrassing declaration and moves off the cushions, offering them to Yashi, who lightly prods the skulker into the room.>“You are still getting a spanking,” you tell Rana with the simple declaration that makes her shiver, and lick her lips with a pierced tongue. You turn to Yashi, who is dressed in the gown you first met her in; she gestures to the skulker.
>>1332084Oh right, we didn't care about what Rana did to Mayune/Mayune was too afraid of us to want to wish for something?
>>1332086Not especially - rather, Akko used Rana's teasing of Mayune and Mayune's ignorance to put Mayune through more psychological trauma.
>>1332063> Undress her slowly and languidly.> Edgeplay....there's something you don't indulge in often.
>>1332080... It's not a pun on "edge of the blade", anon.>>1332089That's a lot of trauma. Poor girl.
>>1332097It's possible that that is the definition XS is using, but when I googled it, I came up with>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edgeplay
>>1332102I mean, Akko's skilled enough that Rana will almost certainly be in reality safe regardless and may even enjoy herself, but I kind of feel like this is worth clarification.
>>1332102Well, you learn every day. But it doesn't fit, because Akko does stuff that fit this definition pretty regularly.
Knifeplay, anons. And yes, Rana will be perfectly safe and not even wounded (uunless something goes terribly wrong).
>>1332122I had considered that, yes. But consider how unlikely it is that XS doesn't know what the common definition of edgeplay is.
>>1332125>Rana will be perfectly safe and not even woundedNot even a little bit? That just seems dull.
>>1332127That particular usage is more recent compared to my terminology (yes, I dated myself).
>>1332132Well, your definition does fall within Edgeplay as an umbrella term, it's just also literal at the same time.
[x] Undress her slowly and languidly.[x] Burn away her clothing – it is not like she'll get burned, after all.[X] Edgeplay....there's something you don't indulge in often.Jiyua shivers as she watches you run a fingertip along the ifrit's sleek, smooth back, tracing the fastening of her halter-top at her neck and the middle of her back lightly. You continue down her spine, stroking the ruby flesh, faintly limned with gold highlights (you suspect it's literally gold applied as a glaze of sorts). You caress the curve of her bottom, and she wriggles encouragingly. Schechei is watching with raptly, while Falna is only interested in the more academic sense. Kteine settles next to you, placing herself slightly behind you. You don't look directly at Falna, but Siobhan eagerly reveals her irritation and annoyance in song inside your mind.Much more important is that Yashi has also noticed the faint schism forming, and her ancient eyes greedily drink in the tableau between Falna and Schechei and you and Kteine. That is something you might be able to use later; manipulating Yashi might be interesting, especially if you can turn the tables on her.Turning your full attention back on the lovely slave before you, you caress her breasts and she lifts her head, her eyes closed and making a soft, strangely 'shimmery' hissing noise, a pleasure noise of the creatures of fire. It takes a tiny portion of the arcane force you cultivate to set the clothing aflame, curls of blue and green flame eating at the silk and slowly exposing her firm breasts, nipples pierced in gold and chained o one another. You let the flame tickle her belly as you trace the gold and jewel pierced to her navel, then set her harem pants aflame as well, making a literal thing out of what could have been figurative. More piercings, but these are intricate – each labia bears a set of shining golden rings, and they are criss crossed with a delicately woven cord of braided copper, gold, and crimson thread.Kteine's eyes widen at the sign of the slave's decorously closed sex, and you laugh wickedly. “Now there is something I might have to try for my self.” Auena is staring as well, her soft grey cheeks flushed nearly sapphire with embarrassment. The virgin gish looks even more shocked by the diamond set in a ring of gold that conceals Rana's anus from view. “Ahn, that looks like Yzia's doing if I don't miss my guess.” Schechei looks confused and then crawls over to look at what Kteine is looking at. Her eyes widen with interest, but again, it is entirely academic in nature, like her mate's.“Mmhm,” Rana hums softly in response, and Kteine glances at you and you incline your head curiously. Give her permission to examine Rana's 'décor'. She is githyanki – she doesn't need your permission even for a foreign slave. Ask her what she is wondering. no need to embarrass her further – telepathically ask what she wishes to know or do. Write in?
>>1332131Careful now anon, remember she's just a loanee!Also hurrah, Raider time!
>>1332131Thank you Carlos.
>>1332137>[x] She is githyanki – she doesn't need your permission even for a foreign slave.Something something Gith supremacy
>>1332137> She is githyanki – she doesn't need your permission even for a foreign slave.But if she seems like she's not grasping that concept> no need to embarrass her further – telepathically ask what she wishes to know or do.Also, while a high degree of body piercing and ornamentation was expected, I didn't think she'd go that far, Neat.
>>1332137> Give her permission to examine Rana's 'décor'.As long as she doesn't get in the way too much.
>>1332137> She is githyanki – she doesn't need your permission even for a foreign slave.>manipulating Yashi might be interesting, especially if you can turn the tables on her.We have to find a way to do this.>>1332139Sorry, I couldn't resist.
>>1332137>More piercings, but these are intricate – each labia bears a set of shining golden rings, and they are criss crossed with a delicately woven cord of braided copper, gold, and crimson thread.So THAT's how edgeplay could enter the picture? Kinky.
I nearly forgot this was the spanking scene, it's been a little while since we last saw Akko&co. Almost seems a waste when she's being this pliable, but I certainly won't complain.
>>1332137Also I had almost forgotten>Kteine: Mid-ranked Gish (once an ifrit, now your student)Wonder what she's about with Rana, did Kteine not live on the Plane of Fire before becoming Falna's slave?
>>1332137>Ask her what she is wondering>Tease Rana's intimate jewels, on both side and on her breasts, and have her narrate to the audience how and why she got them on her.>Look at your audience, and wonder aloud if one of them would like to have that kind of work done on them. Observe their reaction.
>>1332165>Tease Rana's intimate jewels, on both side and on her breasts, and have her narrate to the audience how and why she got them on her.>Look at your audience, and wonder aloud if one of them would like to have that kind of work done on them. Observe their reaction.I like these.
>>1332165That does sound like good showmanship.
>>1332165The teasing sounds like a good idea.
>>1332163Curious about I mean.Like could it be there's some kind of cultural significance of Rana having her labia be sewn shut in such an ornate manner that Kteine is familiar with, and Rana having that is surprising to her?
>>1332137>The virgin gish looks even more shocked by the diamond set in a ring of gold that conceals Rana's anus from view.Looks like she's prepared for a spanking as well, so this will be even better.
>>1332180Gotta have something to toy with in between strikes after all, between that and the rings/cord combo she's well equipped.
Man, plump Gith still didn't get her turn with Akko.>>1332175All I know is that pussies closed by piercings seem to be one of XS's fetishes. Not the first work of her I see with it.
>>1332199Yashi? She's the closest one I can think of that counts as plump, because I'm not sure if Githyanki were bred to gain weight well.
>>1332204As far as I recall Aeuna is described as particularly shapely for a gith.
>>1332204No, Auena is plump, by Gith's standards. Due to her spending a lot of time in the material plane.
>>1332208Yeah, that's right. I dunno if that means outright plump or if she's just been blessed with particularly shapely buttocks though. I guess plump by Githyanki standards.Butts are my favorite so clearly Aeuna is too.
>>1332165>>1332166>Noted for next post.
[X] She is githyanki – she doesn't need your permission even for a foreign slave.Kteine's curiosity is a good thing in your opinion (of which you have many) so you slowly caress the smooth, rounded bottom of the ifrit and raise your eyebrows. Your tacit approval is enough and she moves close, and traces the 'ring' of gold surrounding the brilliant-cut diamond that 'covers' Rana's anus. Rana makes a soft crackle of amusement and you give Kteine a wry smile.“Yzia enjoys the opportunity to present me with curiosities and corundums. I suspect that it was she who gave Rana the curious nether piercings, and inserted that.” Kteine's eyes light up with understanding, but Auena's reaction is quite different. “In....serted?” Her blush is growing worse by the second and Yashi looks at her incredulously. Falna's disdainful noise makes the blush deepen that much further. Jiyua seems curious as well, though less astonished or shocked.You nod to Kteine and she gently grasps the 'ring' and slowly pulls. The slender golden plug is only a hand-span in length and is no wider than a trio of your fingers, but the soft hissing crackle of pleasure-pain Rana makes demonstrates that it isn't a typical form of play for her. She shivers and lowers her head, panting softly as Kteine looks curiously at the slender, gleaming toy, hefting it uselessly in the weightless Astral.“Oh, I have no doubt it is both real and solid gold. Yzia is very authentic in her tastes.” You gesture to Mayune and she immediately moves across the room to fetch a small box. Slowly you reach beneath the ifrit and toy with the chain connecting her nipples, pulling and manipulating it lightly, which draws more delighted noises from her. “So....how many strokes is your forced declaration worth, Gish Kteine?”“Fifty-nine,” she replies immediately and almost absently, looking at Yustuoc thoughtfully as your slave recuperates, having dragged herself and settled against a 'wall'. Your curious glance prompts a reply. “One for every letter of the words I spoke.”Rana looks positively alarmed at the number of strokes she's about to receive, but Schechei grins wickedly, her amusement purely a thing of sadistic pleasure. Falna snorts softly, and you glance at her with a warning in your eyes. She takes heed at least and you strokes the smooth, firm bottom of the ifrit. Though you definitely want to have a chance with Auena as well....that is one fine ass. Not that this one is bad!
Mayune returns and places a small teak and oak box next to you. You open it and reveal the contents: variously sized beads of glass strung on fine chains; sleek, slightly curved, slender rods and wands of glass and crystal; and what you wanted specifically....a set of knives of carious styles and sharpness, all made from various colors and hardnesses of glass and crystal. Kteine's eyes widen appreciably.“Oh, in a decade or three you too will have a similar box, I am sure.” She looks at you dubiously, but Schechei looks at Falna, who smiles indulgently. Kteine's reaction to that look is almost painful to see, until the hot anger eclipses the sadness. Which is bordering on despair, as well. She may not be quite so stable as you had hoped. Of course, it hasn't been very long. You're so jaded, at times.“I have a Secret Chest dedicated to such things,” Yashi offers and just about everyone shudders at the sound of that sweet, rich, alluring voice. Siobhan makes a curious noise in your head and you quickly hush her. You're not sure you even want to imagine what sort of things she's accumulated in a thousand years or more. Spanking first, then something more intimate. You might want to spank more than Rana's bottom, so those cords and rings must go.... See how sensitive she is to the threat of the blade. Ask her if she is one of those who is healed by the flame. Write in?
>>1332227>[x] See how sensitive she is to the threat of the blade.>[x] You might want to spank more than Rana's bottom, so those cords and rings must go....
>>1332224>Jiyua seems curious as well, though less astonished or shocked.She's still here?
>>1332227> Ask her if she is one of those who is healed by the flame.> Spanking first, then something more intimate.Let's aim for a harder spanking than she expects, but something we still think she can handle.
>>1332227Poor Kteine really isn't suited to the Gith life, huh. Well, she still has time to adapt I suppose.
>>1332227So many good options...and Ryukusa is right, Aeunass is too good to go unexplored all quest. But let's focus on the now.> Spanking first, then something more intimate.> You might want to spank more than Rana's bottom, so those cords and rings must go....
>>1332232>She has a ritual to perform that will permanently protect Akko from scying, divinations, and other untoward attention.
>>1332227> Ask her if she is one of those who is healed by the flame.If she is, then we can have fun with that and adjust accordingly with both spanking AND knives, since while I suppose an extra-good time with her is worth some demon blood, I'd prefer not to expend more than we have.Also after giving it some thought> Spanking first, then something more intimate.Mainly because if at all possible, I'd like to see how those cords look like dripping wet....That still happens in the Astral Plane right?
>>1332246By the way XS, your pastebin link in >>1331973 is to the edit version, as is the one on pastebin itself. Not exactly tough to puzzle out the actual link but still.
>>1332227> See how sensitive she is to the threat of the blade.Could you clarify what this means? Like does that mean that Akko is making sure that Rana isn't strongly opposed to this kind of fun?
>>1332242It's almost a shame that we didn't use proper protection with Yzia, and Mythic Tiers are sexually transmitted if you're good enough at fucking. I'm assuming that Yzia's matching nondetection mask just won't cut it considering the effects were a lot more obvious than a rune on our cheek, right?
>>1332227>Spanking first, then something more intimate>You might want to spank more than her bottom, so those threads have to go>Though maybe the rings can stay. See how she reacts to having them stimulated, first.
>>1332248It's a result of the damaged archive. I'll work on it.>>1332251That would be the correct interpretation.>>1332254Yes, but it is apparently not unknown among the dragons, so it's less of an issue. The mask will still protect her from beign scried upon and most basic divination magic, so it is still useful in keeping her whereabouts and thoughts and nature protected otherwise.Also, there wasn't much protection to be done.
I kinda want to shoot Auena and Juyia a look promising them butt fun if they just ask for it
>>1332270Aeuna would probably be scandalized. Well, as much as a Gith can be anyway. Sounds good.
>>1332251>>1332260Then yeah, might as well establish a baseline before we start moving it to be delicate places, it might be messier if she gets twitchy.Also, I thought the problem was that Yzia would become too high status that she'd be reassigned to someone with a True Silver Sword and thus that's an additional reason for the two of us to go on the run after the raid because while she has enough social capital to stay with us for the duration of the raid, it'd be suspicious if she stuck with us beyond that?
>>1332273Oh, that is also a problem, but it's in addition to the mask issue.
We're the kind of girls dragon mothers warn their daughters about.Warn about how they better fuck our brains out and teach us a lesson in pleasure and might, that is. Unless they want Mom to show up and show them how it's done..
>>1332278I was more just lamenting that the mask isn't enough to hide Yzia's Mythic status, and honestly I'm not really sure what level of magic would be (and it's certainly too late to figure that out now even if there were any we had access to, since Yzia is meeting with other Solar Dragons as we are having fun with Rana.
>>1332282>"Get you a girl who rebels against the entire Gith caste-system and strives to surpass it.">"Moooooom!">"I just want what's best for you honey."
>>1332297It doesn't really seem like Akko meant to rebel, it's more that she was kind of forced into doing so due to what amounted to being creative in the bedroom.
>>1332306She could always just accept judgement like a good Gith. Still rebelling even if forced.
[XX] Spanking first, then something more intimate.[X] You might want to spank more than Rana's bottom, so those cords and rings must go..You caress the smooth, rounded derrière of the beautiful and graceful daughter of one of the Maliks of the City of Brass – not merely a slave, but a noble slave, which is an interesting concept all on its own – and she shivers in a lovely manner as your fingertips trace those rings set into her plump outer labia. Ten of them, in fact, and not something Yzia placed there. “I think I will definitely have to apply this to someone at some point,” you murmur softly, and Kteine's face becomes a carefully controlled blank, while Schechei looks at you curiously and Auena looks absolutely and thoroughly embarrassed. Jiyua shudders and looks down, which makes you smile. Falna doesn't even react, which isn't a surprise.Mayune colors and quickly leaves to get further refreshments, while Cyrillian merely looks bemused, as you expected. Yustuoc is in no condition to care, and too far away to hear. She's also your current favorite candidate.You continue to stroke both warm, soft buttocks, and it is fairly obvious that Rana is not unused to spankings. You reach under and play with the chain, coiling it around one finger until it starts to pull upon her taut nipples. “Who delivers spankings to you that you are so used to them? It is not a typical reaction, this movement,” you point out as she shifts her weight subtlety, offering herself to your hand. “Surely not the same person who did this....” you add, your fingers tracing the cords that protect the slit of her sex. You could probably get a finger or slender wand between the ties of course, maybe two, but no more than that. “I am a slave, but I am the Malik's Storyteller, so no physical violence may be offered me....save by my parents, Gish Akko,” she murmurs softly. Kteine looks shocked, and Schechei seems surprised as well. Githyanki familiar ties are not particularly strong, in comparison, so you're not surprised at the lack nof reaction by anyone else present. “Your father spanks you?” asks Kteine with an odd note in her voice. You chuckle softly, and Rana wriggles a little more. “And she enjoys it, as well,” you comment, showing Kteine your damp fingertips. The deepening of the ruby darkness of the ifrit's cheeks is telling. “Ahn, I see you are one of those....” That earns you an odd look from several people. Rather than explain, you demonstrate.
The sharp crack of your hand striking Rana Najla's bottom echoes through the cell vibrantly, and she only makes a tiny noise. You deliver the second, alternative sides, and slowly ramp up the intensity. It isn't long before your words start to make sense. Her soft breaths and tears are sweet and lovely, but her clear and growing excitement is more telling, her trembling body and the growing heat and wetness of her nether lips definitely telling a different tale.Soon her lips are parted and she is making soft, sharp cries at each firm stroke of your hand. It's obvious that Schechei is very excited by it, and Kteine is morbidly fascinated. Jiyua is clearly familiar with the game. You've played much more dangerous versions, decades past. But you remember the techniques well enough – when she violently shudders and suddenly half-collapses, her arms giving out, you pause in the spanking to gently stroke her soft, soaking nether lips and play with her wild matte-black hair, letting her climax recede a bit.“Did she just....?” Auena's incredulous question is soft. Ask her if she would like to try her hand at it. Simply nod, and continue with your lovely, lovely work. Lay the lovely ifrit across you lap before continuing, let her relax. Have Kteine check to see how excited and whether or not she 'just did' – that should irritate Flana nicely. Write in?
>>1332306>>1332283Remember, Akko's power was strong enough to start making remaining close to the githyanki an issue even before the mythic forces became involved. Her Majesty would have eventually taken an interest if she became too much more powerful even in mundane ways (no gish is allowed to progress past 18-20th level). This just sped up the inevitable.
>>1332318> Simply nod, and continue with your lovely, lovely work.Very good
>>1332318> Lay the lovely ifrit across you lap before continuing, let her relax.
>>1332318> Simply nod, and continue with your lovely, lovely work.
>>1332318>[x] Lay the lovely ifrit across you lap before continuing, let her relax.>[x] Simply nod, and continue with your lovely, lovely work.Wow, Yzia really did find a great slave. Rana practically oozes eroticism.
>>1332318> Ask her if she would like to try her hand at it.
[XX] Simply nod, and continue with your lovely, lovely work.[X] Lay the lovely ifrit across you lap before continuing, let her relax.You gently help the trembling avidity to lay upon your lap, and encourage her to spread her legs a little as she does so; she looks up at you gratefully and places her hands together, right over left, making it clear she is still in a 'pose' for you. A knowing smile and a nod makes Auena blush deeply, and she stares at the slave-sorceress in wonder. You, on the other hand, begin to dish out the remainder of the slaves punishment, the last fifteen blows, which you once again work up to level of intensity that have the lovely ifrit sobbing and shaking violently with each hard strike.Schechei is wildly aroused by the display, her hands flexing, and Kteine is staring at her as though she is a stranger – and in a very real way, she is. Falna is reacting to Schechei's arousal as she is not to the exotic display before her, but that isn't unusual in mated pairs and groups. You finish the last few and Rana shudders violently, still close to another violent orgasm. Obligingly, you lift your leg up slightly to raise her hips and she bites her lip, her eyes closed tightly as she breathes unevenly. You give her another fifteen slow, firm swats of your hand – but not on her burning, plum-colored bottom, but against the soft, plump mound of her sex.Her cry of pain is accompanied by a desperate grip of your thigh in both her hands; despite the pain and the reaction, she lifts her posterior higher, offering, begging for more. You slap her sex again, and again, your hand coming away wet from how soaked she is. When she climaxes, you do not stop, only making the blows lighter, softer, to assist her rather than punish her.When she is done, collapsed in a quaking, sobbing heap across your lap, you stroke her hair and smile while Schechei turns to Falna and practically assaults the woman, kissing her desperately and greedily. Kteine's blank expression cannot hide the emotions in her eyes; a deep, sudden anger that Yashi drinks in greedily. Jiyua carefully edges away from the lovers, while you soothe Rana gently, giving her the affection and care that will keep her from an emotional collapse.
Come here. Your silent command is directed only at Kteine, and she moves closer to you, tearing her eyes away from her beloved 'twin' and the woman who loved them enough to make them githyanki. You take her hand and she allows you to do so. Guiding her hand to Rana's sex, she glances at you, then watches as you guide her fingers to the soft, wet heat of the slaves bound sex. It is difficult for her to ignore her loved ones, but she does...and then she becomes interested in what she is feeling as she slips her ring and middle fingers into the pulsing heat between the ifrit's legs, eliciting another shimmery hiss of pleasure. “I can feel her contractions,” Kteine murmurs, just loud enough that Auena flushes darkly. “She's having multiple orgasm, isn't she....” You nod, while she turns her hand and her thumb gently caresses the tight opening above Rana's bound sex.Her caress causes Rana to draw a sharp breath, and you glance at the ifrit, tracing her horns lightly. “Oh, there too? You really are more of a pleasure slave than you let on, Most Beautiful Object of Desire.”Rana bites her lip and Kteine glances at you. You bow your head slightly in permission, and she gently presses her thumb into that tight place. Rana grips your thigh harder and draws another quick breath, and then bears down, eyes shut tight. “Move gently,” you tell Kteine. The young githyanki obeys, and slides her thumb in and out, slow and gentle.“She's already close again,” whispers the psychic gish, and Auena and Jiyua are both watching raptly. Yashi is as well, but her eyes move between Schechei and Falna, who are now watching you guide Kteine, and you and Kteine. Falna's gaze is hot and angry, while Schechei is watching Kteine, a dark greed in her eyes that suggests that Kteine is more wanted than she may have thought, at least by one of the two. Kteine is pointedly ignoring those gazes.Rana's breaths – unnecessary but desperate nonetheless – slow, halt....and then explode from her, as she shudders. This orgasm lacks the intense power of the previous two, but is no less potent. It is subdued and slow, and deep, and Kteine watching in fascination as she brings the ifrit over the edge. “That was a different sort of pleasure, wasn't it?”The slave nods, her grip on your thigh hard and her body writhing as Kteine satisfies her. You glance at the young githyanki, and pick up a thin rod of obsidian, one with a small, slender blade sharpened on a single edge. “Shall we open her up?” you murmur suggestively, and Kteine doesn't flinch. She slowly takes the knife from you, and looks at the shaking, helpless woman across your lap, her thoughts strange and deep. Yashi leans forward, while Schechei's eyes blaze with a variety of emotion....>To Be Continued....
>>1332455Oho, things are getting interesting now.Thanks for running!
Since I am off tomorrow night, we will continue The Raiders at 11 pm Monday evening, PST, with a longer session since i'll actually have some sleep tomorrow. Apologies for the short session, but I trust it was worthwhile. Tomorrow we resume with drama, knifeplay, and a bit of drama.... and then perhaps an effort to fix the broken slave-girl Cyrillian.After all, Rana owes Akko for the pleasure she's receiving, while Yashi has been given quite the show....and perhaps an opportunity.
>>1332463We will also be continuing in this thread.
>>1332463Thanks for writing
>>1332455Great way to end this session. Can't wait for the next one.Now that Schechei and Falna are mated, what would happen to Schechei if we killed Falna?
>>1332486Do you want crazy Gith hellbent on rending your flesh from your bones? Because that sounds like how you'd get crazy Gith hellbent on rending your flesh from your bones. Not that I'd be super scared of Schechei, but still.
>>1332486In Akko's experience, Schechei would suicidally attack Akko. And that is a direct experience, not a theoretical one. Most survivors of the death of a mate become self destructive in a variety of ways. Polyphilial groups are less prone to self destruction due to extra support, but the effect is still devastating.
>>1332493It's mostly because I figure if we continue like this Falna will try to kill us, and odds are we'll kill her if that happens.
>>1332463Thanks for running, it was well worth the wait and I'm looking forward to more later. Hope you rest well!
Thanks for running!
The Raiders Part 12 – Session 2You are, perhaps, a little in love with the dramatic.It's something of a survival trait in a place where sleep is impossible and you will live forever, unless violence is used to kill you. Boredom, ennui, lassitude....these things are the only things worse than the enemy. You can kill the enemy. Loss of interest in living? Not so easily killed. But it can be defeated!Of course doing so means you do things like this. 'This' being placing yourself at odds with an ex-lover who has turned a current lover over to you for the purpose to teaching her to be in all ways and things as much githyanki as you are. This, while allowing her lover and your student to sexually gratify a slave on loan from one of the Maliks of the City of Brass, the ruby-skinned, black haired, silver tongued half-genie Rana Najla. That this is being done among other members of your cadre is not so significant as the fact that the mate to your ex-lover (and lover of your student before that mating) is watching.Yashi is enjoying the show immensely; if anything she is at a higher risk to falling to ennui than anyone else here, being quite possibly older than all of the githyanki in this room combined. The soft and voluptuous psychic warrior Auena is blushing such a deep sapphire color that you would be worried about her health if you weren't much more concerned with your own at the moment.Two of the three slaves you own have wisely decided that refreshments can wait a few minutes as the delicate psychic warrior you are training and teaching plays with a slender obsidian knife, deciding exactly how to interpret the question you last plied her with, namely, in what manner you mean to have her open up Rana. The shaking, exhausted, pleasured slave is laying across your lap, her legs spread, Kteine between them. One hand rests on a freshly spanked buttock, as she considers the slim cutting tool in her other.
It is a credit to Rana that she has neither remarked nor moved, despite sorcerous skills and uncanny stamina. She waits patiently, willing to endure whatever you decide to do with her (though she is only on loan, more is the pity). Her outer labia have been pierced with rings, both sides, and a braided cord of silk or incredibly fine metal has been laced through the rings and tied in an intricate and most likely unsolvable knot at her perineum. Kteine's thumb slides alogn the moist – no, not moist, wet, soaking wet slit of the slave's sex, and she shudders and makes a soft hissing sound of pleasure in her native tongue.Falna is stoically watching her once-lover, an impossible twin to her mate due to perilous wizardry. You transformed the mind within Schechei's body to true githyanki. You are endeavoring to do so with Kteine through much more mundane means, and you have progressed well and far in the last twelve hours. Schechei is not nearly so stoic, her displeasure and greed for the attentions of Kteine pushing at her even through the sense of eternal bonding that the mating ritual instills in your kind. She is not inherently monogamous, though biologically she can't help but be that way. Kteine sacrificed her love to grant Schechei and Falna their mating.You could take petty vengeance in so many ways, but you're rarely petty. Dramatic, cruel, whimsical, yes. Petty?Why be petty when you can be magnificently cruel? Encourage Kteine to open up the beautiful slave – in some manner or another. Warn Schechei that Kteine is not her mate and free to seek pleasure....or be sought for it. Give Falna a challenging look; her mate is your acolyte as well in the matters of gish. Ask Kteine if she would prefer you do so. Write in?
>>1334829> Give Falna a challenging look; her mate is your acolyte as well in the matters of gish.My bad, I thought this wouldn't be running until 3 again so I didn't check the twitter.
>>1334829Actually wait what does this mean? Like is Schechei our student in some regard?
>>1334984Both Schechei and Kteine are lower level gish, and therefore under your command as gish. They were both meant to be your acolytes, but you bypassed the issue of teachign Schechei how to be githyanki - but she's still a much lower level gish, and she definitely needs training to fight with other gish instead of struggling by herself (Akko tested both of them - their fighting styles were wildly incompatible).
>>1334829>Warn Schechei>Ask Kteine if she would prefer you to do so>Remind Kteine that as a gith without official mates, she is able to seek pleasure whereever it is. Demonstrate by asking your slaves to come closer and have the one who reaches you first kiss your pussy
>>1334829 Warn Schechei that Kteine is not her mate and free to seek pleasure....or be sought for it.
Akko is going to start singing, right?'Cause this sounds like the start of a Villain Song
Rolled 19 + 19 (1d20 + 19)Hmn.I am writing by the way, but I will do my usual pre-post check.
>>1335089Well, something tell me the sorceress would like that to happen. Maybe even wish so.
>>1335097Oh boy. 38 of talky-talky?
[X] Warn Schechei that Kteine is not her mate and free to seek pleasure....or be sought for it.[X] Write in? Sometimes a demonstration is in order....You turn your attention to Schechei, whose expressions are quite clear and undoubtedly in turmoil. You leave one hand among Rana Najla's shadowy locks, both to reassure and to seize control if necessary, but the other slips into the small box of tools and toys. You come up with a slender wand of carven crystal, the tip a needle sharp point. Sliding the wand lightly along the plum-dark buttocks of the slave-sorceress, you speak with Schechei privately. You cannot prevent your twin from indulging herself. To do so would be more than a mere breach of etiquette, it would be laying a claim upon her that you have no right to as yet. Schechei turns her attention – and her ire – towards you. You frown slightly. Considering the sacrifice she made for you, this is disingenuous of you. I would go so far as to call it foolish. She could not cope with a mating ritual as she is now. You would do her psyche far more damage than Falna and you did to one another's bodies.This is untoward. You know she is meant to be mine and Falna's mate! Interesting, her thoughts are much more clean and lucid than they were before she became githyanki, but they are essentially her own. Your efforts in wording the wish were not in vain.Never the less, you are forbidden from attempting to control her appetites, or the appetites of others around her. Oh, certainly you may challenge them.... Here you let her feel your amusement and the awareness of how that will go for the young gish in present company. But she is her own person, and unmated. And those are factual things, not merely opinions or her own feelings on the matter.What would you know about her feelings on these matters? Do you think that she would honestly seek these pleasures with others if you hadn't goaded her into them? Her hot blooded accusation only makes you smile as you point out with the wand the line across which Kteine should cut, your words almost automatic, nearly an afterthought even as you converse with Schechei. I am not so stupid as to ignore the fact that you have issues with my mate. But I'm also not stupid enough to try and fight you over them!
You quickly realize that Yashi is following at least one half of this conversation – she may not be able to read your mind, but she is most certainly reading Schechei's responses. This is not merely a matter of revenge. It is a fact. Anyone who desires Kteine may attempt to woo her. Myself included, but I have not done so yet. I have thought about it, and you let her see and feel your thoughts on the matter, but I am not the one you should be most worried about at all.“Kteine....you know that you are free to pursue whatever pleasures you might enjoy, do you not?” She looks at you languidly, her distraction clearly the result of an internal conversation with someone. Rana shivers and looks over her shoulder at the young githyanki warrior. You glance at her, then at Kteine, and Kteine smiles faintly, a faint blush coming to her cheeks. “Oh....I see.” It doesn't take a genius (which you are) to see that she has been discussing things with Rana, who slowly turns herself over along your legs, not using the Astral Fundament to do so, but allowing her body to caress yours as she turns.She shivers and makes a soft pain noise as her hotter than usual derrière slides along your thighs as she spreads her legs wide. Using your slaves as a demonstration seems to be without merit at the moment. Pity that. Let Kteine distract you. Ask Yashi if she is enjoying the show privately, knowing full well she might be nearly as smart as you or Yzia. Continue your conversation with Schechei. Time to move on to your slaves, who need some attention as well (Next part begins). Write in.
>>1335176 Continue your conversation with Schechei.
>>1335176> Ask Yashi if she is enjoying the show privately, knowing full well she might be nearly as smart as you or Yzia.Kteine is free to do with Rana whatever she wants as long as she does it here for everyone to enjoy.
>>1335176> Let Kteine distract you.
>>1335176On the one hand, messing with Schechei and Falna is always fun, on the other it seems like we've got Rana set up for round 2, which feels like it should merit more of our attention.
>>1335176>Continue your conversation with Schechei>Tell her that if she wants Kteine to know she still care for her, she will have to talk with her, Githyanki to Githyanki. And they both have to accept that mating is NOT an option for the moment>Move on to your slaves
>>1335203>You may always write in something other than what is listed.
>>1335176>but I am not the one you should be most worried about atDo we mean Yashi in a general sense of "someone to be worried about" or Rana in a "seems closest to having sex with Kteine right now"
>>1335176> Continue your conversation with Schechei.
>>1335176>Use Rana to demonstrate your well-earned talent at pleasing women, make eye contact with Aeuna while doing so
>>1335224Akko believes Yashi has taken an interest in Kteine, and she is VERY certain Yashi is incredibly disruptive and easily capable of drawing others into potentially fatal situations (as she did to Akko at their first meeting). Sexing up Kteine just to get a rise out of Schechei - or more likely, getting someone else to do so - would easily fall within her need for drama and excitement.
>>1335176>[x] Continue your conversation with Schechei.I suppose I can support >>1335232 too
>>1335187>>1335176> Point out that others are watching and listening to Schechei
[X] Continue your conversation with Schechei.[X] Write in. Teasing and teaching can be done at once perhaps – especially about the dangers of illusionists.You run your hand along Rana's smooth, not entirely flat belly, tracing the jewels and gold at her navel, before you lean down, pulling your hair to one side to let everyone see how you kiss her. And kiss her you do, slow, delicate teasing at first, licking the soft darkness of her lips. She parts them and you deepen the kiss just a little, lips brushing, tongues brushing...you slowly draw back, forcing her to follow your tongue, her own extending, the gleaming golden studs in an arcane pattern sliding along your tongue. She tastes of exotic spices and incense, sweet and hot. Her tongue is hot, though not quite hot enough to scald. It would definitely be very hot anywhere along your body.If you truly want her so badly, you must explain that to her, not try and cow those whom might be rivals for her affections, beautiful little creature. You would be well served by apologies and the asking of forgiveness. Her startlement at your sudden capitulation – or what she might think of as one – is almost insulting. She is nearly githyanki. Githyanki in all but deed and will. She will be n asset and a warrior to be feared, when she has realized her own value.Schechei's haughty thought is definitely meant to be insulting. She has infinitely greater value to Falna and I than she does to you. You kiss Rana fully, your hand tangling in her hair now, gripping tightly and forcing the kiss. You pull back slowly, and she shudders, looking down her own body as Kteine slowly cuts the braided wire or silk that keeps her sex from being properly explored and enjoyed.that you think such a thing shows the depths of your ignorance, Schechei. you smile and run your hand down to the soft crux between Rana's legs and slide the threads – silk, definitely, but strange silk. Enchanted metals, perhaps. In any case you pull them free, and then slide your fingers into the hoops of gold, drawing a surprised gasp from both Rana and Auena, and interest from Kteine and the still nervous Jiyua. Spreading your fingers wide makes Rana gasp softly, and Kteine slowly stretches out, looking at the dark places revealed by your inescapable fingers.
Falna told me-Falna tells you whatever she believes to be true, regardless of the truth of it, you calmly but firmly retort, giving her memories of what you and Falna felt and then what happened after she decided you were of no great import. The shame Schechei feels for her attempted diatribe is silent and heavy, and not something she shares willingly so much as you read it off of her anyways. Falna is self serving. I never forget our higher purpose, even in my hedonism and scholarship. Do not mistake amusement and pleasure for escape or disregard. The last person who did is now fertilizing our fields.Schechei has no retort or answer for that, and withdraws, thoughtful and subdued. Falna is glaring daggers at you now, but you ignore her in favor of watching Kteine explore Rana's alien sex with surprisingly gently fingertips and the slender rod-end of the blade she holds, almost scientifically. Rana is certainly not reacting in a manner that would be merely perfunctory; Kteine is definitely stimulating the lovely slave, who looks up at you with a broad smile and glazed eyes. You lean close and whisper in her native tongue. “Later, you and I must indulge one another in depth. I have a blade I wish to anoint in your liquors, both those that run in your veins and those that flow so easily and copiously from your flower.” Siobhan comes alive in your mind, fascinated and most definitely interested in experiencing the slaves body in many ways.You know, perhaps it was Siobhan that corrupted you and Yzia....Ridiculous.Utterly so.
“I would take great pleasure in giving to you freely what others must demand of me.” she whispers back, before gasping and placing both hands upon her belly, undulating as Kteine slowly slides the obsidian rod deep into some opening or another within the ifrit slave's sex. “While my command may be your wish, I believe Jiyua has something for me....given that she is attentive to your pleasure and not my will.” Jiyua blanches and you laugh softly, before slipping out from under Rana to let Kteine gently but firmly press her down into the cushions and hold her there with purpose. You lick your fingers clean suggestively, and look into Auena's warm brown eyes while doing so, deliberately making the gesture suggestive of spread legs.Such a pretty sapphire blue she blushes.You walk over to the beautiful and glamorous Yashi, her apparent youth little more than that of the 'twins'. “If I may interrupt your eavesdropping, I have need of you.” Yashi looks up at you with those pale eyes, barely yellow any more. “Of course, Gish Akko.” You shudder and wonder if her touch might be as sensual as that voice of hers. If ANY touch could be that sensual.You take Jiyua aside as well, and as she crafts the Rune for you, you explain to Yashi about your beloved, delicate, broken slave Cyrillian.... Explain that you wish to restore some semblance of will to the broken girl. Suggest that you would be pleased if Cyrillian would be strengthened and brought closer to reality (fully aware of the irony). Ask if she can think of anything aside from death that might assist Cyrillian in adapting once more to her situation. Ask her if she intends on seducing Kteine away from Falna. Write in?

>>1335331> Suggest that you would be pleased if Cyrillian would be strengthened and brought closer to reality (fully aware of the irony).
>>1335331I was kind of thinking that fixing Cyrillian might fall under Rana's purview as well, but it seems rude to ask Kteine to hurry up. >Maybe we can see how well Rana is able to multitask, since she was capable of having a private conversation with Kteine earlier.As for Yashi>Explain to her what you discovered Cyrillian's true nature to be, and that you feel like you could make use of that, considering the details of the upcoming raid.Like I don't know, she's a snake-person disguised as a half-elf designed to spread some intrigue/chaos between human and elves, maybe fulfilling her original purpose might help pull her back together, so we can have fun bending a more complete Cyrillian to our will.
>>1335331>[x] Ask if she can think of anything aside from death that might assist Cyrillian in adapting once more to her situation.>[x] Ask her if she intends on seducing Kteine away from Falna.
>>1335352>>1335331Also, are the three options about Cyrillian asking different things, or is it more how we convey the idea to Yashi?
>>1335366Asking for different things, all related to helping Yashi, albeit in different ways.
>>1335331 Suggest that you would be pleased if Cyrillian would be strengthened and brought closer to reality (fully aware of the irony). Ask if she can think of anything aside from death that might assist Cyrillian in adapting once more to her situation.
>>1335352You are currently just asking about it - Rana will be available, if pleasantly tired, by the time Jiyua is done.
>>1335352I don't really see Akko as the 'bending someone to my will' type. She's smart enough to set things up so that people will do it out of their own free will.
>>1335352Bad idea, pal. We don't want the girl more broken than she is.>>1335331>The illusionist likes games and drama. Tell her you would like to unravel the layers of illusions and delusions Cyrillan is clouded by, and strengthen her mind and will enough that she can handle a world closer to reality. Ask if Yashi would like to help you solve this artwork-level of a mess that no owner nor punishment could.>Entice her with what you know of your slave's storyBasically, play with the illusionist's desire to see a good drama unfolded.
>>1335384True, maybe not bending to our will, but having a fully cognizant Cyrillian serve us because she chose to is possibly even better.>>1335386I don't know, I assume that before she was captured, Cyrillian wasn't hypnotized into thinking she actually was a half-elf, like at some point someone was able to figure out what her deal was before us, hence her bifurcated tongue.I do like how you phrased the offer though.
>>1335376>ability to make decisions>ability to comprehend what's actually happening>ability to survive in current situationIs that what it ultimately boils down to? Because if so, while they're all important, it feels like improper sequencing could result in a beautiful tragedy.
>>1335400Also, I feel like we might need to look ahead for a bit since we'll be spending a lot of time in a Material Plane soon, and considering our current situation, returning to the Astral to get our stuff seems... like it might be kind of tricky? I mean our slaves definitely aren't a high priority per se, but still worth some consideration.
>>1335331Adding to this >>1335386>Make it so in a way that doesn't result in your slave breaking even more due to the situation she's in or the ones she was>>1335391Pretty sure she *was* hypnotized to think that. Sleeper agent and all that.
>>1335408I figured she was more of a spy/assassin but you could be right. Though if she's a sleeper agent, I wonder if it's possible to reverse-engineer how to awaken her from what's left of her cover identity's psyche.Also, is she currently too crazy to demonstrate any class levels or whatever, or is that not really possible to observe out of context regardless?
Rolled 2 + 15 (1d20 + 15)Sense motive.
>>1335422Wow that's a crappy roll
Rolled 14, 17 + 19 = 50 (2d20 + 19)>>1335422Spellcraft, Knowledge arcana.
>>1335428That's more respectable
You know what'd be hilarious?What if Yashi was one of Cyrillian's previous owners? Or at least knew one of them.
>>1335422Suffering ahead, I guess.
>>1335425>>1335444Eh, Yashi is probably REALLY good at bluffing considering the kind of life she lives, so at least we know we probably failed.That being said, probably not the best idea to raise the subject of Yashi seducing Kteine, unless we're hoping Yashi has a contrarian streak?
>>1335447Dunno what you're talking about. We know Yashi will be contrarian if it pleases her. Or displease her, but in a novel manner
>>1335431That'd be extremely bully
[X] Suggest that you would be pleased if Cyrillian would be strengthened and brought closer to reality (fully aware of the irony).[X] Ask if she can think of anything aside from death that might assist Cyrillian in adapting once more to her situation.[X] Write in? I am going to make you an offer you will hardly be able to refuse, Yashi. I want an impossible task and a slave that is well and whole, sane and strong, and capable. The catch is what you are working with to start.As Jiyua paints tiny symbols of power and magic along the living metal embedded in your left and along your cheek itself, you silently speak with Yashi concerning your broken slave-doll Cyrillian. While explaining her condition is a relatively easy thing to do – Yashi is an ancient creature, who has spend nearly her entire existence in the Strongholds, and thus is familiar with how it affects githyanki and slaves alike – explaining what Cyrillian is turns out to be a lot more complicated.Hence, using telepathy.Yashi takes your request quite seriously. While she may not have very much experience as a Raider, she has been under the jurisdiction of many Leaders and Supreme Leaders, and gives you the respect that you are due. Your strange tale of Cyrillian, however, is something much more important: a vast and unusual distraction and a serious challenge for someone of both her intellect and age.As Jiyua begins the enchantment and rituals, Yashi thinks, and you watch Kteine put on a very lovely show for Auena. Yzia returns as well, human formed and lovely as a buxom elf with strange dark skin and hair that is pure white. Drua or drow, you believe. Her eyes are draconic of course, and she seems none the worse for wear after dealing with the council of her kind, if they even have a form of governance (you suspect that they do not, only hierarchy of power).When Yashi turns her attention towards you, you are stunned by the richness and potency of her telepathic communication. She paints broad, sweeping vistas of conceptual and visual data and imagery, nearly overwhelming you with the detail and richness of her mental contact. Where most githyanki can convey images and ideas along with emotion but use actual words to communicate with, Yashi has moved far beyond that. If her speaking voice is sensual and nearly sexually arresting, her mental voice is several orders of magnitude more intense.The gist of it is this: between the wishcrafter's sorceries, and her own array of wizardry and spells, Yashi believes that they can piece together the slave girl's mind in such a way that she would be whole and unbroken, and capable of using her skills and abilities on your behalf. Not all of the githyanki, but specifically your behalf. It will not be easy or gentle, but it will restore Cyrillian's mind and skills to those of a freshly trained and well treated slave, one who is both loyal and healthy, without being purely enslaved by you.
“It will be costly,” she warns you softly, and Jiyua has to pull away and cease her work, shuddering violently while you shiver lightly at those dulcet tones. “If you plan on asking me for Kteine, I cannot help you there, Yashi,” you admonish gently, half in jest. But only half. She smiles and ducks her head, acknowledging your awareness of her desires to utilize the young gish in some nefarious manner. A scheme of some sort, you think. “How, exactly do you think you can accomplish the task ahead of you?”She shows you.Strangely, it is a process that makes perfect sense to you as a crafter of jewelery and glass. The idea is to force-complete the breakdown and then refine and reduce the remaining mentality into a very fine, almost rarefied state of mind. Then the two magi and yourself would rebuild her mentality back to something resembling its original structure, since the mind was once formed and complete. They would sift the rarefied essences of her mind and gently let it settle back into the blank slate of her brain and empty mind; but your knowledge of her, combined with Yashi's illusions and hallucinations, and Rana's ability to fulfill wishes from the heart, would let the dust of her mind filter into the previous patterns and shapes that it held before her breakdown.In essence, grinding shattered glass to powder and using it to fill the mold that it was made from before it had been broken.You said it would cost. I doubt you mean mere diamonds.I would have from you a gift, a weapon made by your own hands suitable for one of my stature. A sword or rod or stave or spear of glass or crystal, indestructible and suitable for enchantment. A weapon worthy of an illusionist made by your hand. That is my asking price. Her desire for the weapon is overwhelming, an ache deep in her heart and perhaps almost sexual in its potency. She is aware she can never have a silver Sword, but the desire to have something that can be hers to wield alongside those who bear them is an ache so potent you want to cry, a childhood dream forever denied her because of her talents and inability to become what you are or even Falna is. Siobhan cackles manically in your mind.  Agree. Agree, but she remains with you when you leave. Consider it well and hard; delay your answer for the moment. Refuse – what she asks is too close to what the phantom Gyr demanded. Write in?
>>1335470> Agree, but she remains with you when you leave.When we say "leave"... that seems like it might be turning over a bit more cards than is perhaps prudent.
>>1335470>[x] Consider it well and hard; delay your answer for the moment.
>>1335470>[X] Agree.Maybe this magical destiny can actually be pretty fun, and if Yashi is smart enough to connect the dots, she could very well consider us enough of a lightningrod for drama that she'd follow us whether we wanted her to or not.Also a bit concerned over what motive we failed to sense, but Yashi's talent at conveying information telepathically sounds amazing, that really conveys just how much experience she has accumulated.
>>1335470> Agree, but she remains with you when you leave.But keep >>1335473 in mind
>>1335470> Agree, but she remains with you when you leave.I'm apprehensive but alright
>>1335489>>1335484Feeling like you're in a gambling mood? On the one hand, Akko probably wouldn't be so bold if she thought that being immediately fucked over was one of the likelier outcomes, on the other... Yashi seems to love stirring up trouble and has nevertheless survived a very VERY long time.
Hope it's not too late.>>1335470>Consider it well and hard.>Ask her why she desire a weapon crafted by us. You could acquire a magnificent weapon for her in other ways.>Ask Yashi if breaking someone to their most atomic components and then rebuilding them from the ground up was an idea she had to deal with ennui problems. She is brillant and charming, true, but you doubt anyone can come up with such a well-thought, reasonable-sounding, convincing plan on their first try, after just being told such a peculiar case.Can Akko even craft what she's asking ? I don't think she has the feats for most of those items>>1335489>>1335484>>1335480>>1335473Guys, don't fall for it like that. She's still hiding something.
Rolled 17 + 117 (1d20 + 117)Spellcraft (but not yours).
>>1335510Do we not have a reputation as someone who is very intelligent and a skilled craftswoman? I don't really find it that surprising that she would have faith in our ability to create such a weapon. But maybe there should be some alarm bells ringing from that.Also yeah, she is still hiding something but who isn't?
>>1335518...Is that modifier meant to fill me with awe and despair?Because holy shit.
>>1335510>Can Akko even craft what she's asking ?She can craft magic arms and armor, and Yashi's desire is pretty specific to a weapon, preferably on par with a Silver Sword. Akko can manage something close (or perhaps even similar to).
>>1335518Well, I mean, not sure the roll was needed there...
>>1335518>+ 117Oh lawd
>>1335520We're not known for our weapon-making.It's likely she learned about the phantom thing wanting us to perfect the silver blades, and want a piece of the fun.I'd refrain from agreeing now, because she might demand we mess with that other Silver Sword we have. >>1335470Dunno if it'd too late, but I'd like to add this to my vote here >>1335510>Tell Yashi that her talents and skills are great in their own right, and that she has not much to envy us Gish for. You wouldn't have reached for her to help, otherwise.
>>1335529It's likely to be a typo. Not even gods of magic have that score.
>>1335537I don't really think she needs to be patronized. Like the only area she feels inferior to in regards to Gish is that she doesn't get a really cool custom weapon. Also she requested it be made out of glass or crystal not metal, and she'd definitely know better than to think we could customize someone else's silver sword and not raise suspicion, considering how crazy Githyanki are for silver swords.
>>1335523I get the impression Akko-crafted items will soon become legendary in the Material Plane.
>>1335546I didn't meant it to be patronizing, more like "yes, if it was down to merit alone, you'd have a silver sword, because you're pretty awesome "
[X] Agree, but she remains with you when you leave.[X] Write in? Setting a snare for someone like Yashi would probably be quite difficult....if she was not quite so desperate for something only I can provide....and that does not sound like an idea that comes off the top of one's head, sweetheart.Jiyua finishes her work and you feel the magic take hold of you immediately. The burning pinpoints of fire in Yashi's eyes – undoubtedly the most potent form of Arcane Sight – dim noticeably to you as the Rune of the Inscrutable One takes hold. Jiyua looks exhausted and hopeful; the potency of the rune amplified by your own nature and the focus of living metal upon your cheek may make it even more difficult for others to use their divinations and spells of scrying than the Rune of the Inscrutable One itself might provide.Not to mention you'll be able to discern its creation for yourself and give it to others later.“Bide a moment, Jiyua.” She nods, hopeful that you're pleased by her success and her work. You turn your full attention on Yashi, studying the enigmatic illusionist carefully. She weathers your scrutiny with great dignity, calm, collected, and giving away little. Then again, you're not actually trying to figure her out at the moment, you're trying to decide how badly you need this. In the end, it's really not your own need that decides you, but Cyrillian's need. you seem to have been exploring that avenue of work for some time. That was far too detailed a description to have been off the top of your head, Illusionist Yashi.She shrugs mildly....and the carefully places a few images and concepts in your mind, alternative ways of disassembling and reassembling someone's mind. And a few more. And then the offshoots of those. And then the combinations of those plus offshoots of other avenues of research. And then the potentials for abuse that all those things have. And then the curatives and preventatives for those abuses. And then the resulting avenues of defenses and reconstructions those curatives and preventatives lead to. And then the following concepts for constructing intelligences in things that originally lacked that quality. And then how that intellect could be destroyed and rendered. And then how that intellect could be rebuilt from a state of collapse. And then how the original concepts compare to the new concepts. And then how those could be combined and utilized. And how those could be abused. And how those abuses could be combated. And then how those things could be applied to victims of the enemy. And then how those situations could be abused using the concepts she had already created.
Over three centuries – not in pieces, not in eight or ten hour bits, but in total accumulated time – of theoretical research, codified and extensively studied and restudied, never written down, experiments carried out carefully when they could be done without harm or danger of accident or horrific results. No, she hadn't just thought it out – she had been thinking it out for literally hundreds of years. You just happened to be one more person who was curious as to whether it could be done in a long, long, long line of similarly phrased questions and needs. Ennui has claimed more slaves than violence has. You know because she knows, and she knows because she's been studying the process for a very, very long time. Nearly as long as you've been alive.And that's only one of the things she's been studying.The sheer depth and breadth of her thoughts and the ideas conveyed is enough to give you a massive headache, and you're smart. And yet....She has some things wrong. There are many she has right. But you cans see and feel the flaws in the crafted intellects. You can see where they would break down much better than she can. The creation of artifact intellects of a necessity cannot follow the same processes as githyanki minds, because there is no purpose in separating the higher functions from the lower functions. Siobhan agrees; Yashi's concepts are good, they're useful, but they're not perfected. They could be. They just aren't right now.You shudder and wipe the droplet of blood from your upper lip. I can give you what you want. I could give you exactly what you want. But the Master Smiths would never allow such a weapon to be crafted. She stares at you and you look her in the eyes. How far are you willing to go to achieve your dream, Yashi? Will you give me my gift, my slave's mind, whole and intact, for the mere chance to wield a blade that not even the Master Smiths would dare to allow you? A weapon worthy of an illusionist who has earned it?She only hesitates a moment, the understanding of the enormity of her desire giving even the wicked drama queen that she is pause. Yashi closes her eyes, and bites her lip, the effort making her look cute, almost dainty. The illusionist takes a deep breath, but you knew the answer before you even asked the question. ”Yes.” The way she says it makes you clench deep inside, because you know it's not just an acceptance of your offer, but as good as an oath. Yashi will give up everything she knows, everything she holds dear here, for this opportunity.To serve at your side wielding a blade the equal of a Silver Sword.Siobhan's wicked, delightful laughter echoes in your mind.>To Be Continued....
>>1335580Thanks for running!
>>1335580Goddamn, she really is something amazing.One thing confuses me though, how is she able to restrain herself in remaining beneath Her Majesty's notice for so long? Does she just take care to avoid getting into fights or push past her limits?
>>1335580How can the other girls even compare at this point?
Thank you for reading and playing. We will resume next Sunday near midnight again with the continuation of fixing Cyrillian (and some more sexier time with her and Yashi and Rana). Those Black Blades and Phantom Blades have to come from somewhere....>>1335589Because as intelligent and old as she is, she isn't really that powerful. She's only a 10th-12th level illusionist. So much of her work is simply in her head that she stirs up trouble and causes fights just to keep from being bored because she knows and can imagine and think things that she can't even begin to achieve.
>>1335592I'd still say Yzia is still in first place, and Siobhan second if she counts as a girl, but I would agree with Yashi may have supplanted Tzanzi at least for now.
>>1335595I think I phrased my question poorly. I was more wandering how one can "gain EXP" in gamist terms and what it means to gain a level, and what it means for Akko to have accumulated a good amount more than Yashi despite being much younger?Does it generally come down to a willingness to do instead of dream, or is it more that Yashi's abilities just aren't suited for the kind of high-stakes life-or-death struggle that really helps make someone stronger?
>>1335608Yashi has participated in stronghold Defense and dealign with people on many levels for many many years, but you are essentially correct: she has lived a very sheltered life, and as a result is less powerful. but this is a good thing for her - less power means less likely to attract HER attention.
>>1335592Pretty easily.>>1335589Because Yashi's not that powerful, despite everything. She just manoeuvred to be in an easy-to-renew sabbathical, showing herself to be useful enough to be kept around but too much of a costly drama queen to be used lightly.
>>1335612Considering the choice she just made, I feel like it would be more accurate to say it WAS a good thing for her.Also I forget, what level are Gish typically issued a Silver Sword?
In hindsight, considering that Yashi has lived as long as she did as loudly as she did without self-destructing, it does make sense for her to know a thing or two... thousand about maintaining sanity.
Thanks for running!Anyone else think Jiuya deserves a bit of a reward for her work, even if she's still in debt?Like, telling her we are very pleased by her work, maybe offering her a continued collaboration once she's finished paying what she owe us?Maybe give her reasons to shiver in pleasure in our presence, too.>>1335597Rood
>>1335625I don't think long term business deals are in the works, but yeah some praise could be in order.
And wuth that,I collapse into bed for my swing shift. (mutter mutter mutter). Typically Akko rewards people who give her good service with awards, medals, honors and the like, often mildly enchanted (and a great way to use divination spells on them).
>>1335632Classic Akko.Hope you're able to rest well and my condolences for having to work out of schedule(?)
>>1335629I would say that the girl might consider that being on Akko's side is better for her life.
>>1335625You're going to have a hard time getting anything but terror and fear out of Jiyua for a very long time.
>>1338654We can work with that.
>>1338654What, she doesn't find us both terrifying and sexy? She seemed pretty interested in watching our lewds
What I still find very funny is how the Githyanki seem to be the kind to have very elaborate, complexe. almost dance-like fighting styles... but given Akko's stats she probably fought more like a fighting game Strongman character, all in power and no wasteful movements unless as a taunt.
>>1338973when the big bad boss monster is putting on a show, the minions pay the fuck attention.>>1338977This is actually very accurate. Akko's showmanship is more dedicate to absolute power and it's perfection, rather than florid style. It's one of the reasons she's considered a peculiar person: she'd rather research spells and develop wondrous powers and craft beautiful tools than practice a fighting style, which is the opposite of most gish activities.
