Whats up you guys! CursedQm here with another installment of Undead Quest. This has gathered a lot more interest than I thought it would so im here to torture-entertain you once again!Last thread>>1610256Last time we began our journey as a newly risen vampiric undead. We terrorized bandits, nearly got gibbed by a low level mage and fought a group of bandits in one on four combat. Our supply of minions grows to include a Ghoul, a Risen and a rather skilled Revenant.What shall we do/kill tonight?
>>1620769Or could amass a legion of undead and subsequently take the empires on with it

>>1620806I'm still supporting the name Thrane for our vampire MC.
>>1620810Seeing as that's the only option I think well go with that.
>>1620819You did that just to spite me, didn't you?And a third of the names belong in Castlevania, the rest lay in either the Incas or the Middle East.
>You are Thrane. You recline in your nest of bloodied cloth and leaves, watching your Risen and ghoul drag in their catch from the night, a pair of pilgrims in torn robes who had thought to take shelter int he woods. Your own captures lifeblood warms your belly, a drunken villager making his way home in the dark, his songs had led you directly to him. The trio of corpses are joined by your Revenants catch, a gagged and wriggling smuggler and a dead man in dark cloth with blood crusted along his lips.You smile ferociously. A productive night. >Interrogate the smuggler>Feed your Thralls (who, 4 corpses available)>raise another pair of thralls (4 corpses available)>Feed yourself
>>1620829FYI I would've voted Raziel as a name.>Feed yourself>Interrogate the smugglerFeed in a way that intimidates the smuggler.
>>1620833VAE VICTUS!>>1620829>Feed yourselfDown the hatch, feed and feed. Feeling damnably hungry still. And then>Interrogate the smuggler
>>1620829>Feed yourself>Interrogate the smugglerGet everyone to feed infront of the smuggler, tearing apart their body and eating it a feral dogs. For the spooks
>Feed yourselfPulling over a pair of the bodies, the plump villager one of them, you tear into them, ripping their cooling flesh from their bones and shoveling it into your maw. The Smuggler pales as he is forced to watch, his pupils as large as coins as he begins to cry out against his gag.You crunch bones in your powerful jaws, sucking the tender marrow and then cracking them down like celery. In the end the only remnants are the scraps of meat in your teeth and the bloodied rags on the floor.You hunch and groan as your body begins thrumming with energy, your veins standing out as your black heart pounds.>Your muscles (hit harder, jump farther, move faster)>Your skin (less hurts you)>Your fangs (bite more)>Your claws (cut more)>Your bones (get bigger)>your stomach (eat more)>Your magic (Necromancy, Domination or another school)>Your senses (See and hear more)>Your humanity (sneak more)>Other (write in welcome)
>>1620876>>Your claws (cut more)More dangerous attacks, plus even more intimidating for our prisoner. Make sure he can see our claws changing before his eyes.
>>1620876>>Your muscles (hit harder, jump farther, move faster)
>>1620876>>Your bones (get bigger)Intimidation, senpaitachi.
>>1620895>>1620896>inb4 we can't get out of our little crack in the wall anymore
>>1620876>Your muscles (hit harder, jump farther, move faster)WE NEED MORE GAINZ
>>1620896>BONESGet some milk after this too.
>>1620908We're going to have to prioritize women then when hunting. WAIT A SECOND.>>1620876Is there any livestock around, such as, say, cows?
>Bones it is then?
>>1620934Sure why not.
>>1620909There may be in the nearby villages (that you haven't found yet)
>>1620939We should start sending scouts out to find some, then. I imagine something as big as a cow would be enough to feed both us and our minions.
>Bones- Stature and Slight Strength and Durability increase.You groan in near agony as your very bones boil. Your limbs pop and stretch, your limbs elongating as the bones thicken and lengthen. Your muscles find new purchase in the elongated skeleton, bulging freshly as they finish developing. Your spine cracks and twists, the vertebrate extending as your very body is stretched. knobs of bone emerging though the skin of your back, forming small spurs of bone. Similar spurs emerge from the rear of your elbow, a wicked spike of white bone.You slam your clenched fist into the floor and stand, the cramped confines of the cave forcing you to stoop with your new height as you regard the gagged Smuggler. >Gained Lords Stature- you stand head and shoulders above a tall man. Only a few would mistake you for a simple human now.>Interrogate smuggler>Feed Thralls>Feed Revenant>Head out to hunt >Other
>>1620986Interrogate the Smuggler.What is he snuggling, who's he snuggling it to, who'd he get the shit from? Ask about the town, the people, his boss, his underlings.
>>1620986>>Interrogate smugglerGotta figure out how to get in and out of the town quickly and quietly.
>>1620986>Interrogate smugglerI think we should also experiment on the bodies. Maybe see if we can have bone thralls.
>>1621102Skeletons? That would be a possibility. A low level, tireless minion unit that you could possibly upgrade by adding more bones to it.
>Interrogate smuggler wins.Give me D20's to feed my eternal hunger
Rolled 5 (1d20)>>1621124
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>1621120Am I hearing Nito? Anyone? Anyone?>>1621124And a D 20 for you sir
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>1621124
>>1621133Well then.... Whats your question for him anon. His little league baseball number? Mothers maiden name? Penis size? Hes feeling very talkative.
>>1621156>>1620993>>1620992And random stuff, how was his day? Are we spooky? Have people been talking about the disgusting and repugnant creatures in the Forrest.
>>1621156 key areas of knowledge:-local lore: bounties, politics, problems, etc.-Whats is going on with the smuggling-hmm...20 eh? Are we in a position to make this man a sort of stolkholm syndrome living thrall? Just put the mindfuck to him mild style?
>20. Interrogation time. Who are you and what do you do.Your Revenant slaps the man across the face, bringing him back to the horrific land of conscious thought. Your monstrous mouth is no longer suited for speech (the words coming rough and distorted) so you speak through your tool.The Revenant and Risens mouths move in unison, your words coming through their voices."Who are you. What were you doing when you attacked my servant. Why the secrecy"You loom close, dragging a claw along his cheek, the flesh parting as if stroked by a razor.He flinches away, eyes wide in terror"We-we work for the Black Cat! We smuggle Wolvesblood and Dreaming Lotus into town! The m-mayor forbids its presence so we took over the sale and distribution! Please! I was just moving a few satchels of Lotus seeds into one of our dead drops! Please! D-don't hurt me! Im just a packer! Please! Don't eat me!"He grows more panicked by the second, pressing himself against the wall to get as far from your jagged grin as possible >Smugglers use the tunnel to smuggle the Narcotic Hallucinogen "Dreaming Lotus" and the Stimulant "WolvesBlood" into town under the direction of a shadowy leader named "The Black Cat". It seems Youve captured a packer, literally someone who packs the empty bags and leftover lotus seeds to be picked back up by the suppliers.>Next Question? >Youve heard enough. Yummy soul.>Youve heard enough. Yummy face.>Youve heard enough. Somebody eat this goof (Who gets his yummy face)>Other
>>1621200More questions. Do you know who distributes this drugs? Who makes them and who inside if the city is the big cheeseAlso, can you lead us to your dealer? If so, you will be protected by us as long as you are useful and DO NOT betray us.
>>1621200other> can we living thrall him? Otherwise make him into a spooky skeleton.
>>1621214You could strip the flesh from his bones and turn him into a skeleton and then with a proper application of your blood and a dash of necromancy you can raise him as a Skeleton.
>>1621214Living thrall? You could for a short time with Willbreaker. You aren't far enough down the domination tree to really make a permanent living minion.
>Anybody else want to vote for a action or are we just gonna stay deadlocked
>>1621258Fuck it I guess make a skellymen
>>1621200All we need is just info on who else they work with. Time/place the others would show up. I don't feel we are the type to taint the drug supply. So just leave soul rip and turn them into a skeleton.
he could be a useful source of income, but that would require human interfacing, which requires a human stature. we may be able to traumatize him mentally, but killing him would make him noticeably differenti say we don't kill him, but intimidate him into giving us a cut, so we have regular revenueeven vampires have a use for money
>>1621318will breaker wouldn't be appropriate because it only works for a short time and it leaves them braindeadwhat if it's long enough that he tells the other smugglers that they need to leave X amount of money every week at Y location, and then he dies away from them so they're none the wiser?if that doesn't work, maybe we can intimidate him and say that if he disobeys us, he will instantly drop dead, we've already displayed that we have supernatural powers so he may believe it
>>1621263Skellington time. But lets eat his soul first, because that is useful...oh fuck. Yeah.Rip soul, skeleton, and if there is any benefit to shoving his soul back into his skeleton, that would be pretty cool I guess."WHY, WHY DID YOU CREATE ME TO FEEL PAIN?"
You still alive Qm.
>>1621517Yeah im still here. Sorry I was working on a old machete making a hardworking knife for my mom. So much grinding work. But im back now.
>So the consensus seems to be rip his soul, strip the flesh from his bones and then raise his skeleton as a undead minion, forcing his own soul back into his body. Correct?>Somebody give a name for this monstrous creature. Im coming up blanks with a name for this
>>1621590Correct, and Osteon.
>>1621590Clacker.His lot in life is to amuse us and suffer whatever indignities we feel are amusing to inflict on him that particular day.
>>1621590Its safe to say we are begining to have Lieutenants of sorts. A ghoul, a revenant, a risen, and a skeleton.I maintain we eventually need to kidnap someone who can be a social infiltrator, a beguiler.
>>1621590For in general? The Stripped, or if to name just this thing. Spookums
Perhaps a Bonewarden? Or Marrow? I'm keen to have this thing rip bones out of the dead and just assimilate them.
>>1621605I redact Osteon, in favor of: baculum.go ahead, look it up.
>>1621611>>1621612Will this thing be a unique undead or are we creating a new unit type?
>>1621612I'm sensing massive hulking bone abominations in the future.
Unit name--Stripped-BoneWarden-Amalgam-Bone golem-Skeleton-BoneRipperThis particular ones name-BaculumSpookyDoot Clacker Mr.BonesCalciorSkeltal
>>1621671Could go either way small but fragile having to constantly replace broken bones or a unique power house that only takes in the best few pieces of its victims perhaps capable of reforming if not completely broken.
>>1621700Those name choices are ridiculous.
>>1621715I try.Feel free to suggest new ones
>>1621715To quote Mr. Croup: "But you must never imagine, just because something is funny. It is not dangerous."
>>1621738>>1621729>>1621707>>1621614>>1621608Anybody want to vote on the name or should I pick for you?
>>1621778Preferably something that's not a joke name. I tend to lose interest in characters pretty fast if their entire existence is just a bad joke.
>>1621778Unit name I support is StrippedFor this one's name, you pick it>>1621793Not even if the bad joke name character ends up becoming a horrible monster of bone?
>>1621818Not even then.
>>1621821Boring, plain and simple. Gotta have some comedy for a grim atmosphere
>>1621841Get it in the way we treat the living then.
>Picking for you.Satisfied with the honesty of his answers and believing them to be the extent of his limited knowledge you nod, waving away your Revenant and Risen. Respectfully your minions back away as you take the terrified mans head in your massive hands.Your eyes glow with a deep, dark violet glow as you channel your dark will. The unfortunate smugglers eyes bulge in exquisite agony as his very being is torn away in strips to feed your ravenous hunger. With the last vestiges gone, he sags against the wall, dead and limp, eyes wide in his last, horrible moments. >1 Soul absorbed.You direct your ghoul and Revenant to use their daggers and claws to peel away every scrap of flesh from the Smugglers bones, revealing the red tinged bone beneath. Skin, muscle,fat, organs, a are deposited in a neat pile at your feet. You pluck the mans warm heart from the pile, biting into it like an apple. Licking your lips and fingers you bite a finger, releasing a spattering of dark blood across the skeletons skull, making sure a drop of blood contacts each bone. With a faint, pale nimbus gathering around your fist you force the mans own soul back into his skeleton as you channel your necromantic power.The skeleton twitches, fingerbones extending into sharpened shards of bone. The teeth in the bared mandibles sharpen, extending into a jagged grin. The horrific creature climbs to its feet with a faint clatter of bones, a deep violet glow showing faintly in the back of its empty eye sockets.>1 Bone warden gained. These initially fragile and slow minions can become quite dangerous if given enough... Materials to grow.>Lost 1 soul. 2 remaining.>4/5 minions.>1 body remaining. >Raise another minion>send your thralls out to hunt >Feed a minion (who)>have your minions expand the lair (how so)>Send your minions to the town >Other
>>1621873Start giving our Bone warden every bone we we collect.In fact,>Feed a minion (who)give the last body to it.
>>1621873>>OtherWhatever anyone else chooses, be an asshole to the skeleton. Torment him for your amusement.
>>1621887Actually, let's raise up the smuggler's old skin as a minion, too, then have it wrap itself around the skeleton like a zentai suit made of meat.
>>1621873Step 1The bone warden gets to rip the bones out of the remaining corpse. The Ghoul gets to eat the meat.Step 2>Other: Go out hunting the dangerous animals of the land, no one will miss them, and their meat and bones will be of great use your growing menagerie.
>>1621947.... What? Even if the skin wasnt already peeled off in strips I don't really see the use of a skin-suit minion. But if enough anons want to do that I may able to do that.Maybe.
Give the bones to bone warden Send everyone to huntGuys can we try the plague scenario mentioned in the last the last thread
>>1621977OF COURSHIt's a ways away though, we'll need to start focusing on developing our mind and magic.
>>1621947I'd rather save that last minion slot for another human that can fill the role of infiltratior. We should try to capture a lady of the night or something.Getting a minion like that into the city would be of immense benefit to us. A long term plant who can pick off targets, and learn secrets.
>Feed bones to Bone Warden, flesh to the ghoul.You wave your minions to the remaining villager, the Bone Warden and Ghoul being allowed to feed. The Bone warden shuffles a step too close to you and you idly flick its skull, the hollow bone popping from its neck and clattering into its hands. It fumbles the skull, nearly dropping it before affixing it and bowing away, jaw working silently. The Ghoul and BoneWarden crouch over the the final corpse. The ghouls long claws peel away the flesh from the bones, eating almost delicately as it peels and cleans each bone before handing them to the BoneWarden. The skeletal creature affixes them to seemingly random points along its body, ribs and fingers and vertebrate forming a nonsensical mess as the pair feed.Upgrade ghoul>Durability >damage>Speed>Strength >intelligence >OtherUpgrade Bone Warden>Damage>Durability >Speed>Intelligence (soul invested so already smarter than average)>Other

>>1622002>>1622009>>1622026Ghoul could use some more damageThe Bone warden can become our bulwark and get Durability.
>Damage for Ghoul. High DPS build.Your ghoul shudders softly, hunching its back as its body is forced through a dramatic change. Its talons crack and shift, fingers joining together to great three, foot long blades of bone as sharp as any sword. Its shoulders and arms lengthen and swell, its skin bulging with cords of lean, Grey muscle. Its jaw extends and widens, a thick maw of long jagged teeth poking through the rotting cheeks as they rip and tear away into ribbons of flesh.>Durability for BoneWarden.The BoneWarden seems to be arranging its new collection of bones, new additions folded into and merging with its originals. The bones become thicker, its ribs becoming a overlapping shell of bones around its midsection. A collection of tiny finger and toe bones meld and merge into a slight helm of bone, reinforcing the fragile skull. The finished products almost appears to be a set of armor made of overlapping bones. The Warden chatters its jaw in approval before you flick a rock at it to shut it up.The Revenant snickers, picking his darkening nails with a knife and watching the Risen try to extricate the pebble from the bonewardens eyesocket.>Send Minions out to hunt (Who and where)>Go hunt yourself, leave minions to improve the lair (Where and how)>Head to the town (yourself or who) >use your souls to improve a school of magic or improve a minion further >Other
>>1622076>>Head to the town (yourself or who)Us and the Revenant. Lets check out those smuggling tunnels.
>>1622085>>1622087Thirded, while we're gone have the rest build a holding area for corpses and/or prisoners/meals for later.
>>1622085>>1622076This, but lets have the rest of the minions improve the cave meanwhile
>>1622085While we go into town. Lets have the three units left clean up the place to better defend.
>>1622096Sure, they could set up some defenses or something
>>1622076I dont know if its too complex, but can we use the souls to quickly improve our minions, and then head to town?The Ghoul and Risen could use a soul, so they are more useful.

>11. Almost uneventful. Almost.You make your way through the forest along the road, headed towards Sverelfan. Your Revenant tries his best to keep up, leaping over logs and vaulting into a tireless sprint.The miles of the forest floor melt away under your feet, soil flying in arcs from behind you as you run, your form a blur of speed to mortal eyes.You skid to a stop near the still bloodsoaked clearing where your Revenant butchered the smugglers, holding up a hand to signal him to stop as he catches up.You aren't alone here.>Advance slowly.>Send your Revenant in>Head in together >Use your senses.

Rolled 11 (1d20)>>1622415
>9. You aren't sure.You crouch onto the balls of your feet, scenting the air and listening, your eyes glowing softly in the dark as you watch for any sign of whatever... Presence you feel here.No matter how hard you look you catch no sight besides the shifting shadows in the trees. You can detect no scent beyond the forest itself and the rotting blood on the ground. You hear nothing beyond the creak and rustling of tree branches in the wind.You step out into the clearing slowly, your Revenant following you with a drawn sword, eying the trees. You reach the center of the clearing and look around, feeling highly uneasy.A figure melts from the shadows of a tree trunk and takes a step towards you, followed by three more, two armed with slender crossbows."You the one done killed our packers? Boss was mighty displeased with that. The Cat nearly took his tongue. Well have to take yours"Your Revenant snarls at the insult and threat to you, drawing his dagger in a free hand.>4 Claws engaged.

>16. Deathbolts taste very bad.You growl, baring your bloodstained teeth at the mans impudence. Moonlight washes across your face and two of the men take a step back, faces paling above their masks as the take in your horrific visage."Oooh. Yer a big'un. Ugly too. Gotta tell ya mate, your head wont be fun to lug back but itll look good on me wall!" he cackles, pulling down his mask to grin at you, showing rotten teeth with several gaps."Right. Feather these fucks so I can get back to Carlas. Bye ugly! "He cackles again.A nimbus of swirling, violet energy gathers in your palm before you flick your wrist, the bolt of pure necromantic energy firing straight into the mans mouth. He totters, smoke curling from his mouth and the smoking, fist sized hole in the back of his head as he sags and falls, twitching lightly. >1. LeeeerrrrooooyyyyyyyyYour Revenant takes your mental cue, charging forth with a snarl, blades flashing in the light. With his extreme speed he Couldve been upon the crossbowmen before they even processed his movement. Unfortunately for him one of them had fired in shock as the leader fell, the bolt burying itself in your Revenants kneecap, splitting the bone open and bringing him to his knees. The second bolt slams into his chest, knocking him on his back where he flails weakly.The crossbowmen rapidly attempt to reload while the remaining sword wielding Claw holds his blade in shaking hands, stepping forward to face you.>Revenant heavily wounded.>Facing 3 Claws, 2 Crossbowman reloading, 1 Swordsman.>Fire Deathbolt again and enter melee.>Hit them hard.>Fight defensively>Other

>15.Deathbolt beats crossbow.One of the crossbow wielding Claws manages to reload and draw back his crossbow, hands shaking in fear at your effortless execution of his leader.His death is barely even registered by you. With a flick of your hand as you walk forward you release another bolt of pure death energy, the dark violet spear burning a neat hole through the center of the mans chest, the edges sizzling and smoking as if he had been run through with a red hot poker. He collapses soundlessly, smoke curling from his lips from his burning lungs. Seeing this effortless dispatch of his companion the swordsman yells in terrified fury, rushing you with his blade held high.>18. Cat got your heart?Your clawed fist blurs our, taking the mans life so quickly he takes several more steps before toppling to the ground, a gaping hole in his chest the size of a melon.In your hand you hold his still desperately beating heart, ragged arteries and tissue dangling from the knot of muscle. You pop it into your mouth and chew happily as you advance on the final crossbowman who seems to be unable to even comprehend the finality of his situation >Crossbowman is in shock>Drain him.>Nice soul, mind if I borrow it>Crush his skull>Pin him to the tree with his own sword >other

>>1622650Pick up the Revenant to translate our gravely voice for us. I just wanna go down being a undead crime lord path.
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>1622650Seconding this
>>1622650You are actually not really capable of speech. Side effect of becoming less human. It can be remedied in time. You are still a fledgling vampire after all. A lil babby. And your speaking minion is laying behind you with a crossbow in his giblets.
>>1622661Ill allow packing the Revenant over.
>>1622661>supporting this.@Cursed: Will a second soul placed into the Revenant improve him or regenerate him in anyway? Like lets say...this guys soul...and his secrets.
>>1622670If that works then I want to start packing everyone's stolen souls into our Bone warden. Turn him into a gravelord.
>>1622665I can imagine when we do develop a voice we sound like the Darkness>>1622677Wish I knew how to spoilers
>Who do you work for!You grab the crossbowman by the throat after snatching away his weapon, dragging him over to where the Revenant is laying, weakly pawing at the Bolt in his breastbone. You idly rip it out and bite your lip, spitting black blood into the wound where it boils for a moment before sealing the wound shut. Your Revenant sits up, gasping and rubbing his chest. He stiffens as your will invades his mind, his lips moving to your will"Who do you work for. Answer or feed my hunger"Comes the Revenant hollow voice "Uh-uh-uh I-I-uh work for Londus. He-hes a-uh lieutenant for the uh.... The black Cat. Our bosses boss. He uh-he... He runs everything in town."He stammers, so terrified he never once pulls away from your talons digging into his throat. "Where can I find him"The Revenants voice echoes with your interest"I-I-uh-ive never met the b-boss myself... Um...Londus runs his... His uh operation out of Carlas. They uh.. They sell girls, lotus, wolfblood, booze, everything. Makes the Cat a-uh... A lot of money... Pleas i told you what you wanna know please don't kill me"He stammers, the scent of urine and something even worse growing in the air as you glare at him>Soul drain>Drain him>break his neck>Let him go with a message (what)>Other
>>1622694Okay one last question, where is the normal hang out spot for your gang members?>soul drain
>>1622670A second soul in his body would be consumed to fuel a growth similar to feeding. Basically feeding a rare candy and a bag of meth to a Pokemon. He would gain a pair of upgrades or two tiers to a skill he already has. This cost doubles. It would be 2 souls the next time and four the time after that.>>1622677Packing souls into the Bonewarden would be a good way to quickly develop his skills but he would still require mass (bones ) to properly utilize the souls into his body.
>>1622705But of course. We should go searching for a graveyard to bring our Bone warden to.
>>1622702Carlas. Local brothel, Alehouse, drug den, gang hideout and front
>>1622694>Other:THE GRAVEYARD. WHERE IS IT?!!!!!Then we souldrain him. and eat the corpses.
>>1622714Ah, then soul drain, cut off a arm or something for our Revenant to heal then carry the bodies back to our cave.
>>1622705Would bone meal work for the Bonewarden? Granted I am assuming that since magic exist here then so does alchemy.
>im commandeering this soul.You smile viciously, placing both hands on the sides of the mans head. His struggles are useless against your might as your eyes glow a deep, dark violet, a faint blue nimbus gathering around your fingers as his soul is dragged out in pieces. It is funneled down into the depths of your own dark soul where it joins the other wailing souls imprisoned inside you.>1 soul absorbed. 3 souls total (you guys ever gonna spend these?)Dragging your Revenant over to a corpse that isn't soaked with urine and shirt you allow him to feed, his wounds healing rapidly after you rip out the crossbow bolt from his knee.>3 corpses available>Feed.>Raise a last minion>Make your way into the hidden tunnel
>>1622720Bonemeal would work, it can easily ne found in any graveyard,crypt or herbalists store. Alchemy exists in a potion and poison making aspect.
>>1622724What I spend these souls on nigga?>Feed.then>Make your way into the hidden tunnel
>>1622724Exercising another option if available.>Feed>Dump 1 soul into the Revenant>Dump 2 souls into ourself>then make our way into the tunnel
>>1622734You can invest them in yourself to improve a spell or your own magical skills, invest them in your body for dramatic changes (a tier change for each soul you use) or invest them in a minion (2 tiers for the first additional soul but it doubles)
>>1622724Spend souls so Thrane could pass as a human, or disguise as one, and infiltrate Carlas.
>>1622737Very possible but this will raise the cost of upgrading yourself as it will be dramatic. I encourage anons to be creative as you can literally go for damn near anything as long as its not ridiculous.
>>1622737We should get two souls but the Revenant should eat a body since he can only eat a little bit he should share with the bone warden. The Risen shouls get a soul being our right hand man and our ghoul gets a body.>Bone warden gets all the bones and all the milk.
>>1622737This'll do, use the souls to give us the ability to change into a human form.
>>1622747Warden is back home, doubt we will be able to drag the bones all the way back, and its gonna be a bit of a hike going into town carrying bones. Sadly we cannot be 100% efficient.>>1622737I stand by this, and suggest we upgrade the Revenant to be even faster for both pips.We upgrade ourself to be better at domination and stealth, as we are sneaking into town.
>>1622750hoho...hello fellow humans, I am like you as well. This would probably be a good thing for my request of more stealth. As for domination, I am unsure what school of magic would let us rip souls from a distance as an upgrade to our doombolt.
Damn, I wanted to shove those souls into the Bone warden.
>>1622759Always the next chucklefucks who think they can kill us
>>1622759Don't worry anon, once we get more kills we get souls, find a grave yard, then we will have our humble bone warden ebolve into a nice powerful grave lord. It'll be nito to see his progress.>That said we should put magic into him as well, being our mage chief.
>>1622768A necromancing, plague magic wielding grave lord which can raise it's own skellies and form hordes of plague spreading zombies.Can this happen, this needs to happen.
>>1622770Thats the dream anon, we make our Minions our Lieutenants, and they have their own minions someday. We are starting a big evil company.
>>1622772What I'm thinking is the Risen as our second managing our forces with us, the Skelly doing what this Anon said >>1622770 our ghoul being the lieutenant like a forntline leader and the Revenant being our lieutenant drug dealer in the towns/city
>>1622781hmm...so we dont eradicate the black cat, we replace it. A good use of our Revenant. We got monsters in the city, and eventually we get our Skelly to the local Graveyard for an extended night of digging. Instead of going all the way home, it just sleeps in the mausoleums.
>>1622801Yeah basically, we have to have difference bases for different stuff. The Revenant taking over the black cat then soon ither gangs. The Warden making a base in a graveyard specifically for making more skellies, thralls and maybe summoning lesser demons one day. Then us where we focus on making aure everything runs smoothly as well as being the muscle to enforce our gangs influence, the body collected for the soon to be grave lord and to make more minions to raise an army.
>>1622820Maybe start a cult, I got plans man.
>>1622820I mean, simply running a gang is pretty small thinking senpai.
>>1622831A cult however is bigger thinking, that sounds like a plan.Also qm is kill, I'm going to bed.
Been lurking and I just wanna say this is amazingly well done so far. Keep it up and don't stop, OP <3
>>1623158Why not join? The worst thing that will happen is either some bad rolls or we'll ignore you ideas if their bad.
Is it possible to make our character OP like in re:monster
>>1623288Oh please man, we could become like Caine in VtM
>>1623300Double dubs, but still. ALLLLL BYYYYY MYYYY SEEEEEEEE-E-EEEEEEELF
>>1622740Can we get more minions if we spend souls? If so we should amass souls and create an undead legion to take over our nearest polity
>>1623346You can spend the souls to upgrade your necromantic abilities to have more minions. You cannot use the souls to create minions that you do not have the capacity for.
>>1623331Not anymore >>1623288Yes you can>>1623158Thank you anon <3 ily>>1622868Even this Qm requires slep
>What's up nignogs. Whose here and ready for action.
>>1623355Also double check my double dubs.
>>1623374Nah I'm here, I'm normally always around but I have work and military PT so I might not roll but I'll be lurking.
>>1623374Don't worry Cursed bby, I'm here. Ad quick questions:1. Are there weres in this world?2. How would you describe the level of tech?
>>1623381There are weres. They aren't full moon type weres more like "get bitten and be cursed to be a awful monster for all time">Pic related
We should interrogate the next dude we capture about the place we're in, cities around us, who rules it, what they can do military wise. Maybe send a fresh human looking thrall out to get a map.
>>1623381And the tech level is basic mid tier fantasy. Iron is used a lot, some factories exist using steam and water power, horse is still the fastest way to get around besides airship or boat. Magic exists and is used for a lot of things. Combat mages can wreck your day quick fast and in a hurry.>No guns>No cannons>basic medieval era tech. With a few exceptions
>>1623388Op cannot into map drawing but I can give you some nearby locations if you askbthe right questions
>>1623391Is there this world's equivalent to France? Or the Mongols?
>>1623395There are several nearby nations. You are currently in the nation of Islavind. Nordic culture, colder climate, mountainous, lots of coasts. Capital is Kreslia, major towns are Salkez and Brooktuth. You are outside Sverelfan which is a mid sized town with a large mining and logging industry with a serious drug and gang problem in their town.To the south is Ceralise. Think a mix of Spain and France. Very haughty, rich country with a fuckhuege military and a powerful church. I haven't really fluffed them out yet but I'm working on it.To the west is the ocean. Unless you wanna feed on fishes or become a vampire- mermaid....To the north and north eastern border is Kardielheim. Very cold. Very inhospitable, inhabited by only those too crazy, merciless or hardcore to survive there. Isolated villages and a few small towns but the country is huge. Think Russia with Vikings and a serious hatred of anybody who isn't them. They raid around every few years and get beaten back to their holes. There's a lot of nasty creatures up there though.To the east and southeast is Geladon. The breadbasket country, they produce a lot of the areas food and materials. This is where you'll find most of the non-human races (elves, dwarves, orcs, Hobgoblins,etc). Just cause these guys are mainly farmers and craftsmen they shouldn't be underestimated. They are currently fighting a massive war with their southern neighbor. And winning.There's some other cites and villages o need to fluff out but that's a gist of your neighbors.
>>1623411Bueno, and by Russia. Which one do you mean? Tsarist? Soviet?
>>1623426Russia in territory consistency and size. Large country with a few habitable areas but those are fiercely fought over by the locals when theyre not murdering everyone else. There is no government, just dozens of feuding warlords and chieftans
>>1623440I see, so on an unrelated note. Can a vampire eat another vampire? If so, what happens?
>>1623458Yes you can eat another vampire. The effect is the same as killing them (all the undead under their control will die also). You will gain significant stat boosts and a portion of their power. Vampires are rare, hard to find and most are stronger than you right now.
>>1623475Alright then, time to get the quest started for the day. I'll hold down the fort until the other anons arrive
>Feed on 2 corpses. >Give 1 soul to the revenant>Ingest 2 souls yourself.This is a total of 3 upgrades to yourself and 2 to the Revenant.Bueno?
ARE THERE ANY OBJECTIONS TO WHAT OP HAS PROBABLY MISCOUNTED BUT NEVERTHELESS SEEMS TO BE THE CONSENSUS OF THIS AUTISTIC HIVEMIND? SPEAK NOW OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE. or reeeee to yourself in your basement lair I really don't give a fuck
>>1623493I speak for the hivemind in the grand consensus, a quote that shall be told through out all eternity until the end of time:Do it fag
>>1623493What ever, I don't feel strongly either way.
>FeeeeeeeedYou leave the Revenant to finish his meal, the wounded undead eating with less delicacy than usual. He peels off chunks of flesh, wolfing them down as his wounds and bones continue to heal.Dragging two of the bodies together you tear into them, stuffing fistfuls flesh into your cavernous maw. Razor sharp teeth as long as small knives tear the meat to shreds before it is gulped down. Bones, organs, skin. All is consumed. You even chew down their leather belts, working the tough material in your jaws.Its not enough.Reaching deep down inside your very being you draw out a pair of the captive souls. The confused and terrified balls of energy sit in your palms like glowing eggs, desperately attempting to drift away. You idly pull out another soul from your being and toss it to your Revenant, the Undead regarding it curiously. You shrug and toss the souls into your maw, swallowing them down as well.The effect is instantaneous. Like white hot ice energy burns though your veins, making them stand out as pale light seeps from your maw and glows behind your eyes. You collapse, your body twitching uncontrollably as the massive change is forced through you.Your Revenant hesitates before following your example, collapsing as his veins glow with a faint blue tinge>Select 3 (THREE) upgrades or upgrade one stat multiple times. The next soul upgrade cost is 4 souls. >Your Muscles>Your Bones>Your Claws>Your Fangs>Your senses>Your skin>Your magic (upgrade Necromancy/Domination or begin a new school)>Other (write ins accepted)Upgrade your revenant. Choose 2 or invest multiple in the same slot>Strength>Speed>Damage >intelligence>Durability>Other
>>1623525Thrane:>Other (write ins accepted)Use one upgrade for shapeshifting, put the rest into making us more intelligentRevenant:Speed and strength
>>1623525Skinn then two for magic.One for better necromancy and the other for Eldrich magic, you know like induce insanity, occult magic and summoning demons and the likeFor the Reveant intelligence and the one that makes him more human looking. He needs to be the delegate of sorts for awhile.
>>1623539Now by intelligent do you mean upgrading your mind which is your magic.
>>1623542The revenant is already extremely human looking. As long as he doesn't go near any clerics hell be undetectable.
>>1623544I mean as in making us smarter, have us be able to speak. If it's an over time thing the put them into necromancy
>>1623547Eh, alright then put the human looking one into manipulation or something to help him trick people or you know, convincing them to do shit for him.
>>1623544Which magic allows up to control people's mind
>>1623554I guess gotta come to a compromise.
>>1623554Shapeshifting will allow you to speak, sorry if I never said that.
>>1623578Ah, well I'm voting to get shapeshifting. Then I say throw the rest into fangs and claws since we haven't upgraded those yet
>>1623525my roll is for whatever school of magic will let us rip souls at a distance. Gotta upgrade that good ol' soul ripping...because, you have HUGE SOULS...RIP AND TEAR. If that takes all 3, so be it. Otherwise I default to the wisdom of the masses for the other upgrades.Revenant, it would be a sin to not do: speed, speed.
>>1623592Upgrading your soul Harvest to be ranged would be Necromantic magic
>>1623525>ThraneMUSCLESMUSCLESMUSCLESBECOME UNSTOPPABLE>RevenantIntelligence and Speed.
Is it odd that I'm now thinking our vampire PC sounds like Big Boss with a peachy Georgian accent?
>>1623595My request would be to upgrade our necromantic magic 3x.and our revenants speed 2x.While magic does not yield dramatic changes right now to our appearance, we can now attempt to just kill all enemies through souldrain and get a healthy starting bonus for ourselves and our minions, as well as any other skills that come from such sorcery. We would be yielding souls and bodies as the standard for future upgrade resources.Plus a hyper-sonic revenant infiltrator is kinda awesome.comments on this?
>>1623636Well I can't say no to those dubs you've go there. Let's go for it
>>1623607https://youtu.be/bMIHjCmFeNk.....2000 years later it was all cursed's fault, weaving the fate.
>>1623525All these delicious upgrades.>senses>skin>magicOur senses need some love.
>>1623525>>1623699Oh yes, and>intelligence>durabilityfor the revenant.
>Are we decided? Which votes have support
>>1623708>>1623708I think that >>1623636is the only one that came out with two votes.however if it pleases the people, I am happy to compromise on the aspect of the vampire. So long as we get the nessesary points invested into Necromancy to reliably rip souls from those we kill (auto rip, or distance rip) a point into shape shifting would be beneficial.
>>1623636I can't fault your logic or dubs, supporting
>>1623784Nah I'm fine with this, sounds like a good match up to be quite honest. However I think it should be split necro, domination and shapeshifting.
>>1623814We really need to learn shapeshifting
>>1623839We also need to get better/more minions, control people and shapeshift, what's level one shapeshifting and dominating get us anyhow?
>>1623846You already have level one dominationYour magic skills sit atNecromancy-lv2Domination-Lv1
>>1623857We need a pastebin with this shit or something.
>>1623846The ability to infitrate the local criminal underworld and usurp it
>>1623846Level one Shapeshift is in the Blood Magic Tree. You can shift your form between a human and "true" form at will but the effect is unstable and if you take damage, are exposed to holy symbols or silver or sunlight then the effect is broken and you revert to your true form.
>>1623857Alright, so what would leveling up Necormancy, Domination and shapeahifting allow us to do?>Or you know, we could get a skill ladder of sorts.
>>1623859Ill get started on a googledoc
>>1623860On one hand, we could do it ourself, on the other hand with improved necromancy we could have our "LIFE LIKE" tm* Minions do it for us.My principal argument is that there is only so much of us, and if we have specialized Minions, we can send them out to do the tasks that each of us wants. The Necromancy enables us to progress faster, earlier.Skeletal horde lordRampaging Ghoul Berseker powertripSocial Revenant infiltrator/ AssassinRisen...being risen.The other upgrades only benefit the vamprire. This pays long term dividends.
>>1623860Alright, how about 2 in shapeshifting and 1 in domination? Then we have a even 2 necro 2 dom and 2 shape on our magic tree.
>>1623898Goof point, we could install the Revenant as the kingpin
>>1623911That's the plan so we should dump one of his points in domination and one into speed, but this >>1623898 is locked in correct?
>>1623898I again argue that the revenant can be our face if we were to begin subversion. By focusing on early resource gathering, and necromatic capability, we become vastly more powerful early on.>>1623636>>1623886And from a story perspective we are left with many avenues due to our minions potentially having a greater degree of autonomy.
HELLO? ARE YOU KILL AGAIN QM?
>>1623961So then, how would you distribute magic points? We agreed on 3 magic for our thane so now we're talking about distributing between either necromancy, domination and Shapeshifting.While the Revenant 2x speed is locked in.>For the love of god can we come to an agreement, I wanna get on with the quest.
>>1623982No im still here. Just trying to figure out what the hell you guys want to do.Btw the Revenant doesn't have any magical talent but you can use a point to upgrade him to do so
>>1623987If it's taking hours you should probably just decide on something, senpai. Take whatever has the most votes and just roll with it after a cutoff, otherwise nothing ever gets done.
>>1623990Fair enough.Does 1 point into Blood magic for Shapeshifting lv1 and Leech lv11 point into Necromancy for Soul Drain (ranged) and Deathbolt lv21 point into domination for willbreaker Lv2 and Dark Master lv1And dumping both the Revenants points into speed for maximum Sanic
>>1624001Sure thing, I'll roll with it.
>>1624001Yes for gods sake yes
>>1624008Next time we should buff his Int and magic... No good having a dumb frontman
>>1624027We the smartest by far, becasue of a this Portuguese competitive curling forum
>Magic Steroids.You arch your back and snarl silently as your mind one body are inundated with energy.

This shift is temporary and can be immediately disrupted if you take combat damage or are exposed to silver, holy idols or sunlight.

You eye him curiously, taking in his lightly jittering, dexterous fingers, bright eyes and long, lean limbs. His body seems thin, almost frail but you know it conceals a blinding speed that even you may not be able to match. You eye the town, knowing you still have hours left before dawn.>Shapeshift into a human form and enter the tunnel with the revenant.>send in the revenant. >Leave.
>>1624054>Shapeshift into a human form and enter the tunnel with the revenant.Time to go in

>>1624054>>Shapeshift into a human form and enter the tunnel with the revenant.All else fails we hide in the sewer
>>1624054>Shapeshift into a human form and enter the tunnel with the revenant.Didnt come this far for nothing. Plus all new power has left us....famished. Besides, might be time to do a stealth mission, collect a few souls, and perhaps even use Dark Master lvl 1 to get ourselves a living minion....though If i read this right, we have leach lvl1.I propose a plan.

>Shapeshift and head in.You concentrate your newfound skill and channel your energy, feeling every cell in your body respond.Your body shrinks from your inhuman height to a more reasonable if still tall stature. Your muscles no longer bulge with undead strength but instead adopt a more reasonable size while retaining their strength. Your face warps and shifts, bone and fang readjusting from their monstrous design into that of a fairly average human face, if a little angular. Your hide becomes regular (if pale) human skin and you realize with a start you are nearly naked, your rags falling off of you. Your revenant moves to strip one of the larger dead Claws from of his clothes, offering them to you.After stripping off the decorative badges you find you could pass quite easily for a regular human as long as they don't notice the faint glow behind your eyes.Before you head in your Revenant offers you a selection of the blades the Claws had, if you sought to arm yourself now that you could not use your claws.>shortsword-heavy but sharp, good for quick chopping blows and thrusts.>Longsword-Long and fast, offering reach but not good on cramped quarters.>Curved daggers-razor sharp and excellent for opening veins and cutting tendons. >Your strength will suffice.
>>1624105Long sword for us, let the Revenant have the short sword and dagger.
>>1624115>>1624118This'll be fine
>>1624115supported. We will likely be playing magic artillery anyway. Also before we head in, is the armor on the claws of any value to our Revenant, or does he have enough autonomy that he auto scavenges as needed?
Just got on guys, may I suggest some ideas for the future? We should try to to assemble a group of undead, forming them into a traditional adventurer party (dps, tank, etc) giving the leader of the group high intelligence to guide them. We already have the skeleton we can turn into the tank, and ghoul for dps. The awaken can be the leader, just wondering how we can get an undead minion who does magic. The female bandit from before seems to of been a rouge which is something we should try to get if don't use the revenant for that.For our main I think some skills would be an asset, such as beast taming creatures of the night which fits into lore since vampires besides turning into bats, could also turn into smoke, and wolves so having the ability to tame them is also good (should be separate from our undead limit though). Being able to see through the eyes of our minions, a great asset for our spying agenda. Lastly gain the ability to fly.Also for the GM is there a limit to how we can raise our skills?
>>1624373I mean, I wanted our skelly jelly to be our magic guy. Buffing him,with bones and milk then giving him necromancy, plague magic and some Eldrich magic for fear/insanity.For the beast taming bit, I don't really care I wanted to be a leader with grave lord nito, the Revenant as our drug lord, the ghoul leading a raiding group or something while us and the Risen do our stuff.
>>1624391The revenant is very speedy. He is without a doubt the rogue. If we could capture another human, perhaps a female, and transform into a new thrall via dark master, we will have a proper "face" to the party. A beguiler, or in DnD terms, a bard. In a practical sense we could use her as a day walking, life taker. Lure people away, bleed them for everything they have, throw the body into the sewers for the skeleton and ghoul.As those three grow in power, they can begin to become diversified, and we can have various vectors of "problem solving".I would like to see the Skeleton grow in power and stature, but become a master of other skeletons. For magic though, perhaps we could look into the Risen who has been largely ignored since he was replaced by the far more capable Revenant.
>Am not kill. Loving you guy's ideas! Im building a floor for a woodshed for the familia. Will return later today! Continue the ideas and discussions while im away!
>>1624412to elaborate. Each character has some degree of capability, and there is a group consensus here on what we want as a whole, and what we want individually.Some ideas, and I really would love feedback, debate, or consensus.Skeleton- Is becoming a defense spec, adding in the ability to summon or manipulate bone would fill the niche of "zombie army" but does not quite give the Lich feel that >>1624391wants.Risen- Has no specifics, and could potentially become any templateGhoul- Well on its way to becoming the Solo player, a living siege engine/ abomination.Revenant- high speed, anti-social, and undead. While tempting to use him for a party "face" to control human groups, we now have a skill to get a living thrall, and that would be even more beneficial as none of us can stand the light.---we need:A social character, or one that can move seamlessly amongst the human population.On a personal note, I think it would be cool to capture one of the land's most powerful beasts, and twist it into an abomination--In general, we might want to temporarily relocate the crew to the city for a while, to make use of the abundant natural resources, graveyard, sewer system, etc....if this latest adventure goes well.
>>1624412Eh, again I still want the skelly to be magic with plague and all the like. For the Risen he's our number 2, we can send out parties and be confident he can lead the ghoul and,Revenant with our worry.If you really want the party dynamic I'd put it like, Risen party leader, Ghoul dps dude, Revenant Rouge, Skelly Jelly and mage guy.That leaves a bard and non-dark mage to go get. So yeah getting pretty lady for bard is a good plan and getting some old fart as the not dark mage would be cool.The girl I would just want to pour I intelligence, domination magic and maybe some unnatural beauty into to make her a semon demon.The mage dude, so old fart who stays in the cave naking potions, summoning demons and doing weird stuff with things we bring him.
>>1624443Also to note I'm smoking weed so my,writing skills are gonna go down. But the ideas are there.
>>1624443I was actually going to suggest, even though the risen was made earlier, it is far outstripped by every other thrall we have in usefulness and capability. The risen would make a good "igor" or "dr. Frankenstein" sitting back at the lair, and surprising us with its latest creations/ upgrades.On the Bard, how I imagine it going down would be either capturing a lady of the night, or if we are really lucky, a church official with some magical powers. Living thrall. Then upgrade to consume people and their souls. She stays in the city full time preying on the homeless, drunk, or stupid. Eating their bodies and leaving behind no witnesses or evidence.If we could get the skeleton and Ghoul hiding out in the sewers once the place is secure enough, we might be able to turn the city into our seat of power, with none the wiser.
>>1624534I'm alright with all of this, all but I want the skelly to be in like a catacomb with whole bunch of candles and shit.
>>1624623you dream small anon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzPpWInAiOg
>>1625292Nah man think about it, we could have the worlds greats skeleton jazz band if we find a catacombs. Think of the Jazz, the hot, white skeleton jazz.
>OP has returned! Give me a minute to feed myself and catch a shower and ill get to writing! Who all is here?
>>1625469Soon.I'm also watching a livestream though.
>>1625469Here for the next few hours
>>1625469I'm here to feed upon the flesh of the living. And anons, hear me out on this idea. While it does have problems, I thought of a great way of getting easy meals.Babies.They're defenseless, they're weak, and there's the chance that maybe. Just maybe, someone left one out in the woods
>>1625523They're also bite sized. The real question is; is a soul a soul, regardless of how old? Would a child's soul be undeveloped and therefore not as powerful? Or are all souls created equally?
>>1625523I'm all for it, make a goblin or gremlin like thrall to baby snatch in the night, maybe start stealing orphans.
>>1625593We're quickly cramming every evil creature and evil overlord trope into one fledgling empire now.
>>1625599I mean I wanted a cult to spring up soon ran by a stunning girl with tattoos all over, her helpers being two massive ghouls who wear animal skulls as maskes.Ritualistic kiddnaping, sacrifice and sucided was gonna be a big part. Maybe work in demons some how.
>>1625617>ran by a stunning girlEhh...
>>1625617Let's be sure to eat every vampire we come across. And be sure to eat their servants too, repeat until we become a vampiric eldritch monster.Like Caine from VtM combined with Nyarlathotep, and let's be sure we get the ability to gain certain traits from what we eat too>>1625593Make an undead version of Krampus>>1625599Are you complaining?

>>1625636The stunning girl is us
>>1625651Even bigger ehh...
>>1625636I mean, who else would do it some grizzled old dude? Who eles are we got a get young men who just wanna gst their dick wet, then all of sudden their souls gone.But who would you want as cult leader? And don't say the thane.>>1625646You get what I'm going for on the child snachin and what I want our thane to become.
>>1625649Bueno, and I thought of something for higher-up shapeshifting. If we can feed while in it, turn into a cloud of mist then enter someone's body and start draining them dry.>>1625651Nope
>>1625662Thane.If not him then someone actually intimidating that commands respect and fear, not some random pretty grill.
>>1625662>>1625667Don't want to be an asshole. But it's Thrane, not Thane. We're not in Skyrim nor are we an assassin dying with a son who hates us
>>1625684You mean Thong?
I like the idea of eventually starting a cult, and having a very organized hierarchy of differently specialized minions operating beneath us.Once our group is set up, we could then pursue individual ambitions previously discussed - plague, drug / human trafficking, demon summoning, a vampire coven, etc. Possibilities are endless.I think the best way to set this up would be to:1. Focus on becoming more efficient when we eat or make use of souls.2. Give all of our current minions intelligence, so they can set up their own groups on their own OR infiltrate the city and turn some people into vampires to be our lieutenants. The political drama, and not being surrounded only by inherently servile zombies could make things interesting, while allowing for more divergence and variety in our ambitions.3. Consolidate a disproportionate amount of power in upgrading ourselves all around - it is good that we can now shapeshift, but we are a vampire zombie undead thing - our focus should be in specializing at what we are good at, and that is being an unquestionable, omnipotent leader.Thoughts?
>>1625667I mean she was gonna be a thrall of sorts, mostly just vampire powers like domination, summoning and Eldrich powers. Plus we will have a clergy, grizzled and spooky men will be part she'll just be the face.>>1625684I think you tang.
>>1625689Furthermore, we could specialize individual facets of ourselves without having to sacrifice our supernatural power. I would be sure that we'd be able to specifically upgrade our ability to speak, without becoming more human overall, just as we could customize our appearance, and the way our power ties directly into it. I envision a lordly creature, all-around extremely capable creature, like a dread lord from Warcraft
>Vampire with a sword. Thats never been done before.You grip the longswords black leather wrapped grip, the simple iron crossgaurd extending a few inches to either side of the blade. Its obvious its owner never really used it much, the blade is still razor sharp and free of nicks and dents."Suits you well Master. Without your claws you'll have to get used to a sword in this form" says your Revenant cooly, strapping the shortsowrd to his hip opposite his own blade. The daggers are strapped to his thighs, the curved blades within easy reach. "Yessss.... It is.... Odd to be... without my claws... This blade will suffice... For now"Your voice a dry, yet deep rasp. Rusty from lack of use you nearly stumble over the words, no longer used to a human tongue and working vocal cords.You buckle the blade and its sheath to your hip, adjusting the cloth and leather clothes your faithful servant had procured for you. They still smell slightly of scorched flesh and blood.Stepping into the dark confines of the tunnel your eyes adjust instantly, a pale glow begin your pupils seeming to float in the darkness as you make your way along its crudely dug and shoddily reinforced earth and stone walls.Small crates and bottles are stacked along the walls, soot marks on the ceiling showing where torch bearing Smugglers had made their way through.The tunnel is a straight passage, growing low and cramped as it pushes through the foundation of the walls, a narrow crack chipped away by picks to make a passage large enough for a man to barely squeeze through. Ahead the tunnel lightens, a flickering on the walls and the development of a shadow appearing as you grow close to a torch embedded in the wall beside a flimsy wooden door.>Knock>Kick it down>Knock then put your sword through it>Other
>>1625709Knock, and be ready to dominate / interrogate whoever's behind the door to find it everything we can about these tunnels before proceeding. If nobody answers, kick it down and proceed
>>1625709Knock, have the Revenant say.>It's me, we have your next shipment of what ever the drugs where called. Open up.We need to take a step back, our hand on the hilt of the sword.
>>1625703what about going full lich king?
>>1625709Knock, have the Revenant play the part of one of the thugs bringing in a drug shipment. Then, when someone comes we soul drain them. Then bust in with the Revenant engaging a near by enemy while we fire deathbolts at any ranged enemies
>>1625738Would be fun, but it's a long way away. We need a following, and to be exceptionally powerful before that
>>1625738My dick would pierce the heavens. That's probably some thousand upgrades away, though.
>>1625738>>1625703Oh sweet summer children, what do you know of ambition?We could end up becoming a being of hunger, devouring souls and flesh of whoever or whatever we come across. Our abilities with magic making us able to bend reality to our whim. Devouring man, demon, and (eventually) god alike.Worshiped by fanatical cults, armies of undead scourging the land. While we eat, and eat, and eat, evolve and grow. A being uninhibited by morality, conscience, anything. We do as we please, all is cattle before us.
>>1625753Yes. My ultimate desire is for us to eventually become an all devouring plague, essentially. Fuck the politics, fuck playing by man's rules, just eat them all.
>>1625765But where's the fun in that :(I will accept this on the condition we get a nice human or elf waifu
>>1625778The fun in that is finally taking over the world, then using are vast and immensely powerful magic to tear open portals and gateways to NEW worlds and invade them with our endless undead hordes as well.
>Knock knock. Its us! Your Human friends! You step back, waving the Revenant towards the door. He squeezes by you respectfully, rapping the door with his knuckles. A few seconds become several minutes. Your Revenant knocks again, more insistently. A pair of footsteps approach, a gravelly voice slurring out"Who th'bloody 'ell izzit? Wakin' me up from ma nap... Sons'a bitches..."The footsteps pause at the door, a shadow visible from within"Password!"Your Revenant looks at you pleasingly>Catnip?>Kerfluffle?>Vivicaldi?>Sword through door>Apply foot to door>Other
>>1625791>>Apply foot to doorDon't forget to apply inhuman strength as well. I want him flattened by said door.
>>1625791Other:We're the new guys! Didn't you hear so fucking monsters killed the normal guys, our boss was angry he beat to death our best runner. Just let us in before those fucking things in the Forrest get us!>If that's doesn't work, boot that shit.
>>1625797This, we can interrogate later
>>1625797Eh. Fucking it boot the door.
>Foot to door.You wave the Revenant aside as you step forward, smiling slightly as the man slurs out again"Well? You know th'fuckin' password or not ye shitstain'd whelp?""Your boot slams out against the flimsy door, the entire piece ripped from the wall and flying through the air, carrying the portly man with it.With a wet smack and a thud you feel in your feet the man embeds himself in the wooden wall behind him, the door splintered and shattered on the floor. From the dent in his head and the blood gurgling from his nose and ear you dont think the fat guard will get back up. The room you find yourself in is damp and musty, filled with barrels, boxes and bags, many filled with the strong scents of Dreaming Lotus and other narcotics.You step into the basement of Carlas and adjust your coat, hearing panicked voices from above you and a pounding of feet down a staircase as several people make their way down quickly. A door onset into the far wall opens, a group of three men emerging with drawn blades and wide eyes"Gods above look what he did to Fat Silas! He killed him! He killed Him!"One yells, pointing with his sword>Deathbolt and close to melee>Revenant speedblitz>Soul Drain and close to melee>Close to melee>Other
>>1625884Mind brake then get him to start fighting off his friends while we start to plan an ambush.
>>1625884>>Revenant speedblitzas well as>Soul Drain and close to melee

>>1625964I mean, OP might be nice enough to knock off the lowest roll?
>>1625970OP tends to take the highest of the respective rolls, regardless of source, unless there is a crit 1.so probably 20/18, though i may be wrong.
>>1625970>>1625981It's best of three.
>>1625987Let's wait and see.
>>1625992>>1625987too much rhyming already hivemind.
>16. Drain before slicing.You thrust out your hand as you walk forward, a nimbus of violet energy growing around your outstretched hand. A coil of the fell mist shoots from your palm, embedding into the chest of the closest gang member. He staggers, his eyes going wide and skin growing pale as his eyes sink into his skull. His soul is plucked from his chest as you advance, dragging the glowing orb int your palm where it dissipates>Gained 1 soulThe dead gang member falls, his hatchet falling from his hands as his companions rush by him, one going for you with a curved, chopping blade over his head, howling a battlecry.Its cut off as your blade whips across his throat, crimson blood misting into the air as you sidestep, allowing him to stumble past you. A quick reversal in your hands and a reverse thrust sees the blade punch through the center of his spine, the tip poking through his sternum. A quick wrench pulls it free, the blade slick with blood. The remaining pair of gangmembers charge heedlessly, their eyes wide and bloodshot, weapons gripped in white knuckled hands.>18. Human blender.A blur next to you and the pass of wind is the only sign your Revenant has moved. His hands flick out, both daggers whirling through the air to embed themselves in the throat of one of the crazed men. He falls choking on his own blood while his companion continues the suicidal charge. Almost contemptuously, your Revenant swats away and ducks beneath his clumsy blows, his sword flicking out to open shallow gashes in the mans chest and stomach. He toys with the increasingly furious gangmember, opening the mans veins one blow at time. A single thrusting slice along the inside of the mans arm seals his fate, his blows slowing before he sags to his knees, a puddle of blood growing around him. He gasps in agonized fatigue, desperately attempting to raise his blade.The finishing stroke very nearly removes his head, the man now looking from between his own shoulder blades. A thin strip of tissue all that holds the mans head to his body.You flick the blood from your blade as your Revenant retrieves his daggers, listening to the shouts and footsteps above.>Head up the stairs.>Raise a minion or 2 from the available bodies>Burst through the floor like a evil jack-in-the-box>Set the place on fire.>Other
>>1626006>>Raise a minion or 2 from the available bodiesSend them upstairs.>Burst through the floor like a evil jack-in-the-boxWhile we take the shortcut.
>>1626006>Set the place on fire.Can we collect the insurance money after?Joking, but I do want to burn it to the ground.
>>1626006>>Burst through the floor like a evil jack-in-the-boxThis has too much potential not to do
>>1626006>Burst through the floor like a evil jack-in-the-boxits goofy time
>>1626006>>1626009Question about this, could we raise two expendable minions just to bolster our numbers for the moment, then after all is said and done eat them?
>>1626009Second this, have the two new minions feed on the other two dead bodies. We're gonna need hands to clean this place up and hold it for the day so tomorrow night we can move the drugs to the cave.
>>1626006Revenant eats the bodies, we do jack in the boxOpee I have a question: If we're only a fledgling, how are we able to wreck so much shit? How can any human even hope to compete against the most basic BVC (Big Vampire Cock)
>>1626024I imagine mages and holy men will be any vampires bane.
>>1626024This>>1626026You have literally gone up against low level mooks and some gang enforcers. Clerics,mages, vampire hunters, paladins, etc will all wreck your ass pretty easily. Youre just a low-mid tier monster right now
>>1626017Yes you can eat them afterwards
>>1626006>Burst through the floor like a evil jack-in-the-boxsounds good
>>1626037Excellent! Then raise two minions as expendable meatshields for the duration of this fight.
>Raise 2 Minions, send them up with Revenant.>Cause massive damage to the floor above you.Roll me 2D20 for you minion success and how hard your head is
Rolled 19, 13 = 32 (2d20)>>1626067LETSA GO

>>1626074Why. Why always my good rolls.
>>1626074>>1626077you just imploded our minions
>>1626074>>1626079There will come a day where our minions are not shit... but this is not that day
>>1626079RIP. we will never forget them.
>>1626077>>1626079No, no, I got a 20 that means two natural 20s so that mean they will be amazing. He takes the best rolls you knuckleheads.
>>1626089I don't think you understand how things work, senpai.
>>1626093Then why wasn't our lest rolls 6 and 18?
>>1626096Anon, it works in columns. The best out of the first rolls, then the best out of the second rolls.And since THIS NIGGA >>1626074did a crit 1, it's going to be 1, 20.
>>1626067RIP qm again.
>>1626074....Our minions are now basically dead, if not outright dead, but on the upside, we are super fine.I accept this fair and equivalent trade.
>>1626205As do I anon, as do I
>>1626205At least they'll keep them busy while we tear them apart.
>>1626538Or the corpses are gonna pop like balloons, make the guys upstairs ask what the fuck the noise was, then freak put as we rip and tear once we burst out of the floor
>>1626588nothing says a good day done like senseless destruction
>>1626074I see what you are doing anon, draining the luck from our minions to power our rolls. Truly you are the most vampiric of us all.
>>1626634I mean yeah! I obviously wanted to get all them kills ourselves, how else are we gonna get a large mob to lunch a raid in us the fail giving us like 30 bodies and 15 souls.
>>1626624It's not SENSELESS! The Revenant and ourself get a good meal, so it has a purpose.>>1626651Down the hatch
QM where are you
>>1626679He'll come anon, he'll come. For now let's plan and discuss
>>1626690So, everyone keep talking about the sewers but this is a village in the low medieval era in a Scandinavian-esk land, so all that leads ne to believe they don't have any sewers since they only go them around the same time British colonies where founded on north America.My solution, build or take over a church, dig out a massive basement where we can stay near the town. Plus, the cult can start!
>am not kill! Sorry for the delay. Gonna be a busy day but ill be back to update later :) feel free to discuss or ask questions :)
>>1626734That sounds like a decent idea, I also figure for an upgrade. We take a page from VtM have our blood be a super narcotic/intoxicant, addictive as fuck so that way the people in the town will do what they can to get their fix.>>1626746Are Fae a thing in this world?
>>1626752I'll take it however we can get it, A goal is to not raise suspicion, and seamless integrate into their society, using their dead and castoffs to raise our own power until we cam usurp real positions of power.
>>1626788or we go full katamari democracy and create an undead ball of flesh, bones, and steel which grows in size as we run over new biomas, eventually becoming a living tide of twisted meat, stone, metal and nightmares....im kidding.
>>1626788I want whoever the equivalent of Pope is in this world to be someone who'll do whatever we want because we're depriving him of our dope as fuck blood.And thus we control the churchThus we can start crusades
>>1626797Alternatively we could create our own army over generations of careful work, "recruiting" from only the very dregs of society so nobody would miss them. Once we have a force that could rival that of a nation, we could create our own home - a city of the dead, a foothold for the undead of the world to live, die and toil for us whilst we plot to overthrow the "greater races" of the world. We'll destroy every monument to the glory of life and reduce them all to cattle.After all, in the end everything must submit to death.
>>1626886>>1626797I appreciate the grand dreams, but right now we are basically fodder tier material that could get killed by a band of adventurers as a "somewhat tough" encounter.What do you want out of the short term, the resources we have on hand at this moment. Right now we are obliterating this little gang, and making quite the racket. We are no closer to taking over anything. Which dont get me wrong, there is no violence like ultra violence, so I am pleased. After this though, what next? Its likely the second time into this area will not be so easy. The guard are likely to become aware of it as well.
>>1626923If this area gets too tough for us, the answer is simple. We migrate to some other corner at the back of beyond, and we try to do as good a job at creating thralls as possible. Once we have a hundred or so, we find some massive cavern or inhospitable bog somewhere and we start building our city.
>>1626923Short term: Let's be sure we kill this Black Cat for each of their nine lives. Let's be sure we along with our minions eat everyone in this town, then move on to a more populated town or a city
>>1626942>>1626942and also attract murder hobos and paladins to wreck our shit. if we're so shit teir we cant just murderize a whole town word will get out. Unless we get everyone. muhahahahaha
>>1627024I see we have a robbaz fan.
>>1627146https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2uRddpP87Ecirca 2012. he has continued onward.
>>1627168Just looked him up, I don't really find him funny. I just sort of found that on another image board, and decided to use it.QM are kill?
>>1627291Nah he's busy
>>1627537>>1626746He's busy bruh
>>1627542been living on bunk beds, since ten.
>>1627849Just like gunslinger quest, then?
>Hey guys, thread will resume tomorrow, GF came by and surprised me with date night. Thanks for being awesome and no I am not kill.>Also gunslinger is on Hiatus while I work out some kinks in the story. Kind of rushed into that one.
>>1628414I missed you
C-Cursed? When are you coming back?
>>1630291He's not, because he's DEAD.
>I RETURN TO YOU!>Writing Updoot
>>1630370OH SHIT, HE'S UNDEAD.
>>1630388Your lack of faith in Cursed is...disturbing. To say the least anon
>1. Minion mayhem.Biting your finger you drizzle blood onto the lips of the two more intact corpses, your eyes glowing a dark violet as the men twitch and moan, shuffling to their feet and gripping weapons in cold hands. With a wave they make their way to the stairs followed by your Revenant as footsteps pound on the floor above you. Men yell incomprehensibly, furniture and tables are overturned and a strange, popping sound is audible to you as your minions throw open the door. Through their eyes you see a group of men arrayed behind crude barricades of tables and chairs, crossbows trained on the door. The first thrall is peppered with nearly a dozen bolts, falling with more quills that a porcupine. The second pushes its way over the body of its companion only for a tall, hooded figure to step forward with a white, crackling arc around his fist. Your Thrall blinks out of existence with a thunderous SNAP as a wave of smoking flesh and a shockwave flattens your Revenant against the wall. He reports he is merely stuck and is not severely injured.It seems you will have to find an alternate route up.>20.You tense your legs and leap straight up with as much force as you can muster, driving your fist upward you smash through the floor in the midst of the gang members barricade, sending men, tables and stools flying to smash into the walls and ceiling.Your sword flashes out in blurs of razor sharp steel, severing limbs and opening throats. You are among them like a wolf among sheep, every movement of your sword spelling the end of a life. Blood spouts into the air as flesh and leather part like cloth before a razor. Within the span of five seconds ten men lay dead or dying, your sword painted red as the remaining men back away in fear, weapons trained on you.The tall, hooded figure approaches, brushing dust and splinters from their shoulders"Thats quite an entrance. I assume those undead I fried belonged to you?">Facing 10 Gang members (armed with crossbows and swords/hatchets/daggers) and 1 Mysterious mage (Lightning specialist) >Revenant is pinned for a turn>Respond (how so)>Respond with violence (how)>Dive back through your floor hole>Shapeshift into your true form, lay on the hurt.
>>1630552>Respond (how so)"It is not polite to attack out of turn, but where are my manners?">Shapeshift into your true form, lay on the hurt."I am an undead, you may call me Thrane. Now, if you'll excuse me.">Dive back through your floor hole
>>1630552>>Respond (how so)Yes, and there's more where they came from.>Shapeshift into your true form, lay on the hurt.Also, can we raise more undead right now? Or is the situation too tense for that at the moment?
>>1630568On the upside we could either have the mage as a thrall. Or if I think it works so, we eat their soul and gain their own magic
>>1630552Respond to the mage with a soul rip.
>>1630618Wait...wait...reconfiguring my request.How hard is it to use dark master on this guy? do we have the speed to dash to him, and do our dirty work? and avoid getting murdered?
This gonna be another two hour waiting session until someone else votes again?
>>1630620Dark master and raising thralls require a bit of time and delicacy to do and are not combat actions.
>>1630992Well shit. I guess just go fucking ham on them then, go full vampiric blender.

Cursed is kill once again.
>19, 16, 17, 19. Bloodbath.You smile viciously, eying the white faced men and the mysterious hooded figure. Crimson droplets run down your blade, forming a small puddle under the tip."Why yes. They were my creations. Previously they were your employers men but they served me in their brief undeath. How rude of me to not introduce myself. I am Thrane. I appear to be overdressed at the moment, if you'll excuse me"With a crimson glow behind your eyes you release the spell, your borrowed clothes falling from you as they rip under the strain of your growing body.The men cry out in horror as you grow to your full height, skin morphing into leathery, bone studded hide. Your fingertips elongate into white talons of bone as sharp as razors. Your face shifts into your horrific visage as you snarl in primal joy.You drop the sword and before it has hit the ground a man dies, blood spouting from his torn throat. His own blade is snatched up and hurled through the air, embedding into the center of a fleeing mans back.The force of the throw nails him to the far wall, his feet dangling inches from the floor. You are a meat grinder of wrath, claws and fangs ripping through their flesh and snapping bones like they aren't even there. Limbs and gouts of blood fill the air as your claws sweep through their bodies.The final man before you is impaled on your clawed fist, the tips of your claws emerging from his back like knives of bone. You turn as a crackling, popping sound issues from across the room along with a pair of deep *TUNGS* as the remaining pair of crossbow men fire, the mage charging another shot.>19, 18. Bulletproof vampYou swing the corpse in front of you, the pair of crossbow bolts lodging in its back. The mage releases his spell, a bolt of arcane lightning spiraling through the air.You fling your corpse-shield into the path of the spell, the body taking the full brunt of the powerful bolt. With a sizzling pop and a gout of smoking blood it explodes into smoldering chunks.You step into the smoke and flex your claws. The mage snorts, impressed at the improvised shield. The crossbowmen turn to flee but are confronted by your slightly singed Revenant, blades drawn and eyes furious"Sorry im late boss.">Attack the Mage while your Revenant attacks the crossbowmen>Attack with a spell (which one) while your Revenant attacks >attempt to negotiate (what say)>have your Revenant attack
>>1631306Yes. YES.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJT0Xh5ZrOg>Attack with a spell (which one) while your Revenant attacks Chuck a deathbolt at him.
>>1631306>Attack the Mage while your Revenant attacks the crossbowmenWhile the Revenant is sure to slice open the crossbowmen's stomachs. We take the time to torture information out of him. Biting off fingersCursed is blood magic able to allow us to warp foesh and bone?
>>1631433Not yet. That's further down the tree. Fleshcrafting is key to creating abominations and Flesh Golems.
>>1631433Flesh I mean, meant flesh. Accidentally hit the O there
>>1631446Well have I got FINE AND DANDY ideas for torture involving fucking with peoples flesh and bone!And Cursed I've asked this a few times, don't think you've answered though. Are Fae something in this world?
>Attack the Mage while your Revenant attacks the crossbowmen
>>1631477Fae exist as spirits similar to demons and angelic beings. They can be found in areas of high magical potential and are considerably powerful opponents or allies.
>>1631306We needed this. Subdue him and use dark master while our revenant does an impression of a deli slicer and attempts to cut the men's wrist and feet tendons. We are going to need two fresh souls for what I have planned. He has the speed to do this with some luck. otherwise they just die.If I recall we can take living thralls now, and a lightning mage with a connection to the criminal world is beneficial.eh eh?
>>1631306Rip his soul out and eat it.Will we gain lightning magic?
>>1631547No you will not but his soul will be more powerful than usual and can be invested to learn lightning magic.
>>1631547Alright. I join in for Soul rip. He is just talking a lot to bide time for powering up spells. No more words. soul ripping time.I still vote for the revenant attempting to incapacitate the archers.

>>1631719Wait, we can substitute lesser rolls with crit 20s?
>>1631643I'd prefer to give the revenant his due. There isint much to be said for a crit on a suppression action, but his crit may be great enough to lend to our success, where we fail to drain his soul. Good dude might just slice him up as well since he is on a roll.
>>93588963Guys we should turn the Mage since he knows magic and would be useful as a minion.
>>1631719You there OP?
>>1631719>TFW waiting for OPhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fp41XvdB_o4
>>1632312>>1632424Would be nice if he told us he was fucking off to do something else or go to bed.
>>1632571Agreed, but I suspect OP doesn't quite grasp the rabid follow he has created. We hunger for his output to our input as much as our MC hungers for sweet, sweet, flesh and souls.
>>1632666Or maybe Satan, just maybe. He's doing this on purpose to highten our hunger for more of this, but I agree that he needs to let us know when he's doing something/going to go sleep.Also when he's writing because that annoys me a bit
>>1633330What the fuck happened to the second part of my thought? I meant to type that he should let us know when he's writing
>when it's been 24 hours since his last post
>>1634711>>1634618Muhahaha, now, I can ask people politely to join in on my quest with a similar feel while waiting for the author to return. (>>1629405)
