Hey guys, back from the hospital. Will go under surgery on the 22nd, so since they're removing the metal rods off my elbows at last, my arms will be quite sore. Hopefully will be able to type by the next day... I hope.So, we're stopping for the patrol rocki boats?
previous thread>>2034217Anyone knows where this gif is from? looks cute and i'd like to know if its from a game
>>2055608Miel lewds-guy here. Yep, we’re going to stop for the cops and then use our privilege to not get ticketed.
>>2055660>>2055637hi guys***We pat at Radiant's shoulders and try to have him hover in place so the patrol rockitboats can catch up to us.The troopers are.. understandably timid about approaching a dragon, but when they spot us on its back, they realize it's a mount of some type."Young sir, you cannot fly over the city in that... thing." - a specially brave trooper comes forth"I'm traveling north, so it won't be for very long.""...alright, but please stay clear from the city skies. We have a lot of air traffic now with the new rockitship merchant traffic."I guess we need something like a control tower. It is easy to imagine that in the most populous city of the north, which is also a merchant city, merchant traffic would skyrocket with the new ships...Anyway, they escort us outside of the city (at higher altitude to keep citizens from worrying about a dragon being chasen by two gun boats overhead.Guess we will need to reach the city borders before mounting up in the future.At least they didn't ask us for a license.>Come think about it, we probably should organize a control tower for all the rockitship traffic>Nah, its fine as long as they dont fly over the city and land/take off a mile out at sea>Other
>>2055716>Come think about it, we probably should organize a control tower for all the rockitship traffic
>>2055716>>Come think about it, we probably should organize a control tower for all the rockitship traffic
>>2055802>>2055778>>Come think about it, we probably should organize a control tower for all the rockitship trafficI wonder if a colored smoke code... light? I guess we need to install something similar to radio... ah, a mix between the linked journals and radio? I guess radio is better since it doesnt needs to be able to go across great distances if we're just talking about a relatively small area (around a single city)>But radio is a open system and other people can use it and cause havoc by giving instructions to ships>That doesn't happens, does it? Radio is fine>Other
>>2055871>But radio is a open system and other people can use it and cause havoc by giving instructions to ships
>>2055871>>But radio is a open system and other people can use it and cause havoc by giving instructions to ships
I need to go out for 20 minutes in 20 minutes so lets get as much as possible done meanwhile>>2055928>>2055908>>But radio is a open system and other people can use it and cause havoc by giving instructions to shipsYeah, while radio is a fine invention, I see no reason to risk tragic events over some prankster's idea of fun. Let's introduce radio for its own sake someday, and in the meanwhile, switch valuable and potetially deadly assets to the wonders of closed-systems safety.Yup, one linked journal for the control tower, one for each airship. Sort of like a black box. Maybe you get a page linked to a journal in the city you are going to? Must look into making them disposable.Well, once we are finally away from the city, the troopers let us go after making us promise not to ride our dragon over the city.I guess they're nice guys, since they didn't try to scare us or ask us for a bribe or anything like that. Well, its nice to know the army (we don't have such a thing as police) dispatches troopers with a good head on their shoulders to do police work.***An hour later, we're nearing the dungeon we were told about. We can already see a small keep-like building with a main fortress and a courtyard. This would be an out-of-the-city guildhouse, complete with its own tavern, stores and craftsmen.You could call it a small adventurer town, I guess....let's land around here and walk over there. The soldiers were right, no need to scare people, and dont want any adventurer attacking Radiant, either.I wonder if we should organize an official police force for the protectorate?>Nah, if the army is doing a good work, that's fine, isn't it? If it ain't broken, don't fix it.>They may be doing a good work on peace time, but in case of war, the army has to move out and then what happens to the law & order in the city?>Other
>>2055989>>They may be doing a good work on peace time, but in case of war, the army has to move out and then what happens to the law & order in the city?
>>2056016alright going out for a bit
>>2056078>>2056016Let's talk with uncle about this. Perhaps hiring a mercenary group of good reputation, or assigning some troops and replacing them over time, would be better.Anyway, now that we approach the outpost(?), it really is quite large and active, to the point where it is more of a small town. Well, the dungeon seems to be the center of town, though, so I don't think they have many specialties.Have to hurry up the project to create a foodgeon in New Hope, as well.***Approaching the gates, we can see that they're unmanned. Is that really okay? I guess that's because almost everyone inside is a combat-ready adventurer, but at this point I wonder why did they even bother with walls to begin with.Uhmm... the yard is quite espacious, and yet it feels cramped with so many traveling merchants showing their goods on cloths on the floor, or with carts.Most of this seems to be loot from the dungeon, too... ah, I found it, there's someone selling [Wind Essence] over there! (we can tell thanks to our ring)>Buy the regular [Wind Essence]>Farm it in the dungeon>Other
>>2056349>Farm it in the dungeonGrinding back at the Keep would be faster XP, but this gives Sykia and our other newer pets a chance to experience fighting on slightly easier mobs.
>>2056349>>Farm it in the dungeon
>>2056427>>2056374Farm it.Alright guys, im honestly exhausted so lets call it off for tonight and continue tomorrow. I feel like I may drop dead any time
>>2056349>Farm it in the dungeon
>>2056901Guys i just got back home, and have to run back out. Back in like 10 minutes, though
As we walk into the keep (should we call it a fortified town? let's just call it a town), we see many vendors offering their wares on top of cloths on the floor, as well as a few that have carts to display their wares.There is a few store buildings, but they seem to deal with crafting armor, implements or weapons, rather than crafting goods. There is, of course, also a dining room, a tavern, and a tavern & inn building, as well as several residential buildings, of course.We're not the only ones with pets, as we can see several hunters walking around with various monsters, though the vast majority of them are non-humanoids, with the sole exception of an ogre male following a elven huntress. The ogre looks well taken care of, its red skin almost glowing with health, and while it isn't holding any weapons, it is equipped with a [Runic] monster harness, including two stinger-like lances on each forearm.Well, there's very little chance than that one's a caster-type.It is fairly obvious which one is the adventurer's guild building, so we head over and sell some loot, then acquire a pass for the 60th floor, as we're told that wind elementals appear from that floor onwards.Well, this should be about right for Sykia to have a proper challenge on her own level, but, should we go alone with her to maximize her exp, or summon other pets as well?>Is fine, we can tank for her, and it will be good for her to have a slightly hard time and maybe take a few hits.>Lets just summon a full party (who?)>Other***be back in 10 minutes again
>>2058702>Is fine, we can tank for her, and it will be good for her to have a slightly hard time and maybe take a few hits.
>>2058702>>Is fine, we can tank for her, and it will be good for her to have a slightly hard time and maybe take a few hits.
>>2058702Well, try to protect all the time. Maybe bring Fahima or Crema out during breaks to comfort Sykia.
>>2058746>Well, try to protect all the time. Maybe bring Fahima or Crema out during breaks to comfort Sykia.That reminds me that Crema and Moccha also have relatively low levels, so should we take them out to farm too?So, Sykia, Moccha and Crema?
>>2058951Yes, very yes.
>>2058975>>2058956The empty room we teleport to... is a large, empty platform in the middle of the/a sky.Well, we have seen underwater and underground, including volcanoes, active or not, so... yeah, the dungeon enviroments are weird. I wonder if we're still underground.Does that mean that the ground far below is actually a painting?"Can I borrow a coin?" - asks Sykia"You can't throw money away.""Aww..."Shit, now we can't try it out either.Anyway, we call out Moccha and Crema.The platform is connected to other platforms with long rope bridges that sway gently from side to side. I hope there's no fighting in these "tunnels", though.Maybe we should summon more winged pets?>Summon the flying pets>We're fine as we are. Its about experience, points and combat-based>Other
>>2059023>Other:Summon Radiant. She can fly and catch anyone that falls, and as a Mount doesn’t count towards the XP split.
>>2059039>Summon Radiant. She can fly and catch anyone that falls, and as a Mount doesn’t count towards the XP split.Those are all good ideas/points.Just got a phone call, so got to get out again. I haven't been able to sit down and enjoy the thread today =(Back as soon as possible, but im thinking we'll definitively have to play during the week to make up for it, specially considering im gonna get arm surgery again the 22nd so dont know how long till i can type again afterwards, so will want to make up for it.Back as soon as possible, again.
>>2059092We decide to just call out Radiant again, so he can catch anyone that falls off the platforms or bridges, and move out.That reminds us, we should take time to ask our friend Grumnir for a combat harness for our pets.>Lets have some made for the harpies too>Nah, the harpies are growing into 'people' rather than combat pets now. Let's keep them going that way>Other"I'll go ahead, Sykia, after me, and you two girls just take care of the rear.""But there's nothing in the rear...?" - asks Crema"You never know, this place seems to cry out 'flying monsters' after all."We head towards the first platform, and though it looks empty, as soon as we step unto it, a flock of monstrous birds with six wings drop from nowhere unto it to attack us.I guess if we could spot the monsters from outside the platforms, we could snipe at them so... okay.These appear to be [Dragonfly]...? I want to retort to it, but since they do look kind of reptilian I guess its alright to call them that...They're pretty quick, and move to surround us so there's no real 'backline' anymore.They even fly outside the platform if need be, so that gives them an advantage>Keep formation as it is>Rearrange it (suggestions?)
>>2059186>Nah, the harpies are growing into 'people' rather than combat pets now. Let's keep them going that way>Keep formation as it is
>>2059293>>2059274>>2059264wow sorry i thought i'd hit submit but i guess it didnt got sent somehow***Our spells are either single target, ball (aoe) or straight lines (also aoe) so we have a hard time hitting multiple targets that keep flying around unless its with cannot-miss single target spells.If Zoe was here, she could use healing spell tricks to bounce modified 'healing' spells into a chain from a target to the other, or Lyann could mass debuff them regardless of position.Well, we're a tanky dps so we can't complain for not being the cc and skill monkey on top of that.It does means that the girls get to see actual combat, though, as Moccha and Crema have to fight off attackers, and Sykia gives out a cry and croushes down when a monster dives her, hitting her with its wings and beak... I guess just because she can hurl lightning now, it doesn't means she can really 'fight' yet.At least her wounds aren't dire ... we need to get her a proper armor harness soon. Right now, she's literally naked, after all.>Get her the best possible one, with a sexy look. You know, nipple rings and thin chains hanging from them to the harness or each other, stuff like that.

>>2069499>also can I get a thread description?Training Sykia, Crema and Moccha***After a couple of hours, we have taken out enough air elementals and drakes to collect the three [Wind Essence] we needed for boss Grumnir.Well, Crema looks like she's about to collapse... no, rather, she collapsed already? She's sitting on the floor with her legs straight and slightly apart, leaning back with her hands flat on the floor and her head thrown backwards as she pants for air.Eh... was it really that hard? Sykia and Moccha aren't that tired, I think.What is more, Moccha was able to tank for them after a while, so shouldn't be the tired one? I guess she had to run around a lot to get behind Moccha or the enemy as the situation mandated, but I don't really think it was that bad... I guess you could say she's weak to cardio?Moccha is standing by next to us, while Sykia is sitting on her heels next to Crema, sipping from a juice drink we handed to her.>Let them rest for a bit>Un. There's something exciting about the sweaty and tired girl... (lewd)>Let's just unsummon them and go back to Grumnir with the materials>Other

>>2070938>>2070645>>2070574>>>Un. There's something exciting about the sweaty and tired girl... (lewd)"Ah.... aaah... a-mph!?" - Crema's soft panting is suddenly interrupted as we lean down and kiss herOur lips cover hers while we kneel next to her and hold her in position. She can't lift her arms from the floor, or she'd fall backwards, so she's completely helpless under our kiss. A long, deep kiss while we hold her 'hostage', our hand roaming over to cup and grope at her large, firm breast and the back of her neck. She kisses us back as she shivers, and soon,,,>We push her down slowly unto the stone floor, and unceremoniously climb on top of her,>We break the kiss, then have her turn around unto all four.>Other
>>2075143>We push her down slowly unto the stone floor, and unceremoniously climb on top of her,>Other: Sykia does the same to Moccha
>>2075237>>2075167We kiss Crema as we lay her down on the stone platform, (apparently) high over the ground, our fingers entwined with her as we guide her hands next to her shoulders while her thighs press at the sides of our hips."Keep your feet on the floor." - we tell her after our lips part from hers."Ah, yes.""Spread them further apart. Good girl."With the sole of her feet and the back of her hands pressed firmly on the floor, she's comp´letely open for us as we start to kiss at her chin and neck while our child rubs at the petals of her flower, insistently demanding passage into its warmth embrace."Ah, is it that fun to just watch?" - says Sykia as she holds Moccha from behind, making the brown girl gasp in surprise as her hands cup her massive breasts while her tail slides up between her thighs, rubbing gently against the entrance of her feminity."Eh? B-but we're both female..." - the larger girl replies meekly, her hands high before her shoulders, as she clearly doesn't knows what to do."Is alright, let her teach you." - we command from ontop of Crema.Our pets will love whoever and however we tell them to, whenever we tell them to.Smiling, Syklia's heart-shaped tail's tip presses forth into Moccha's tender passage, and soon after we have both auroch girls crying and gasping as they face each other on all four, close enough that their breath washes over each other's pretty faces."Ahnn...!" - somehow, it looks as if Sykia is likely to give up before Moccha does, though.Well, the brown girl is clearly more bulky and resiliant, but she too looks like she's shivering at the edge of exploding.>Order them to cum together>Order them not to cum (without our say so).>Focus on Crema>Other
>>2075277>Focus on Crema
>>2075277>>Focus on Crema
>>2075339>>2075324We kiss at Crema's shoulders while mounting her from behind, our hands holding her waist and breasts as our bodies seem to melt together.As she whimpers, we straighten up and hold her ample hips with both hands, then start a fast rythm, moving back and forth inside her to the full lenght of our child, making her cry and whimper unto Moccha's face,"That's it, now kiss." - we command the auroch girls.It seems they hesitate for a bit, but as their lips come together, they quickly get in the right mood, sharing a lewdly wet kiss as they're both taken from behind.Their breasts jiggle softly with our thrusts, their engorged nipples rubbing formly against the stone floor while we grow closer to release."Ah!" - it seems Sykia's tail is quite sensitive, as her normally milky white body is flushed red, and her eyes are tightly closed while she bites down on her lower lip, clearly about to cum despite the limited stimulii.>We 'command' them to cum, as their master.>We just tell them to cum, as their lover.>Other

It'd be anti professional to one-sidedly raise the price for the goods, right?"(back in 20)
>>2075471Well, yeah, I guess that if you agreed on a prica, it would not look good if the craftsmen suddenly raised it afterwards, right?"Don't worry, I farmed for it, so there was np money involved.""Hmm... what about the dungeon pass?""Ah, well, still cheaper, right?""Potions?""No, didn't use those.""Alright then.""Nyaw just let him be, Eldric." - says Miiyau as Grumnir goes into his forge.I guess he needs more than just the horns and the wind essence, after all.Anyway, since he uses [Craft], he manages to finish in a few moments, and comes back with two nice-looking bows. They have no strings, though, but that's probably because they're magical, right?>Take the chance to ask him for a harness for our pets>Lets go back home while he prepares for the trip.>Other

>>2075626>>Ask for his normal excellent quality work. We want him to keep thinking of us seriously.
>>2075654>Could we have Tazar make the lewd harnesses?Probably. I mean, he is a crafter anyway, is just that by choice, he specializes in fashion and accessories, but he should be able to craft anything just as well. Will need a few tries for practice first, though.>>2075665>>2075654>>Ask for his normal excellent quality work. We want him to keep thinking of us seriously."Alright, should I aim for physical protection, or magical resistance? Its always better to go for one and not chase both. We can use enchantments for that, after all."So, the idea is to go after magical or physical resistance with the 'hardware', and use the 'software' to fight the other threat.If the armor is mostly enchanted crystal and lightweight magic resistance silks to fight off magic, we can use enchantments and cards to give it physical resistance, or viceversa.>Go against magic>Go against physical damage>Other
>>2075730>>Go against magic
>>2075759>>2075740>>>Go against magicIt sounds like it'll be less clunky, lighter, and prettier if its aimed at fighting magic than if it was focused on physical resistance, so let's go with that, then use enhancements and cards to give it physical resistances.Once we declare so, Grumnir nods and we began discussing about the materials for a while.Uh, if this was a regular RPG, I guess these would be fetch quests but... well, its obvious you need materials to craft stuff."I have most of what I'll need, but if you want it to look prettier, I could use some of that glassteel you showed me the other day."Ah, that shouldnt be too hard to acquire, just a trip to Mantequira and that's it.

I don't know the melting point, flexibility, any of the important stuff. I know is excellent for delicate work, and for lightweight armor, Better even than anything we have right now, but I cant in good conscience say I know how much we need."I guess that's true with a new material"I'll bring a good amount and we can just return any extras." - we say after a bit"Seems good to me. Anything else you'd like done? I remember we made a collar for your lady friend almost 1/2 a decade ago, right? I can make a lot better quality stuff now, and you are both surely mugh higher level now, so should we update her equipment as well?">Sure, sounds good, but lets keep it a surprise>Sure, sounds good, I'll ask her to come offer her input about it>No, its fine>Other
>>2077090>Sure, sounds good, but lets keep it a surprise
I wonder if we could play a prank on the Shadows by telling them we have some high level experimental armor and accessories we’d like them to try on. And while it’s all enchanted and enhanced with high level magic and cards, it’s all transparent sex slave robes and accessories.
>>2077117Uhmm it wouldnt be a prank so much as a lewd new uniform, I think. Is not like they have to show themselves in front of people normally.In fact the point is that noone sees them.>>2077127>>2077115>>Sure, sounds good, but lets keep it a surprise"Alright then. Let's see... a fair amount of glasteel, just to be sure. Some Sbastian [Black Gold] would be nice, and if possible, some [Thousand Years Amber]...""Eh... that sounds really hard to find.""What, the amber?""Yes.""Don't worry, it may be called that way, but it drops as loot with that name already.""Oh, that's a relief.""Aren't ya getting sidetracked nyaow? Didnt you want the [Wind Essence] and the [Dragon Horn] tp finish these last orders before going on a new trip, nyaow?""..." x2"Maybe a little, but I know the young lad can get good stuff, and we haven't upgraded his gear for a while so I just sort of...""Yeah, me too. Now that boss Grumnnir mentions it, we have been using the same gear for about 5 years now. Most of it is pretty good still, but I'm sure we can do better.""Nya... well, if you say so.""You can find almost all of it for sale on Blacklake, though. You don't need to go hunting for it.""What if I want [Fine] or better?""Its all [Runic] to begin with.

>>2077241>>2077234Since its a surprise, I assume we're going alone? We could take along Aritsu, maybe? But assuming we're also getting her a super deluxe high level collar, maybe not.I wanna take Mako along because I want her to get used to being Aritsu and Lyann's 'mistress' though, so I want her to pick stuff and give input on these things.Plus we almost never spend time with her, What do you think?
>>2077387Yes, let’s bring Mako along.
>>2077387Well i've told you several times before that no objections imply consent to me, as far as the thread goes, so let's see if we can take Mako out for a walk.***"Eh? Eldric wants us to go shopping?" - Mako leans her head sliightly to the side as she looks at us.She's in the middle of being measured for a new dress, so right now she's standing on top of a small platform with a tailor and several attendants busying themselves around her.The dress is a bright purple and shining blue... I guess this world doesn't has the old problem with purple that Earth had... wait, actually, I guess it could have it anyway? I mean, she's an empress, so it makes sense she would be dressed on it if there was such an issue.By the way, the reason purple was considered the color of royalty only back on Earth, was because it came from crushing the shell of a certain mollusk to extract the dye, and it required about a million such critters for 1 pound of dye.Thus, it was actually more expensive than gold, and only the ultimately wealthy could afford to dress on it. Well, that was until someone was trying to make artificial coal and accidentally ended up making purple dye, back duringthe industrial revolution, anyway.Uhn. Even if she's being measured, her hair ahd makeup are done in a high class fashion. I am thankful that this doesn't means those white powder masks european nobles used to wear. Mako is beautiful as she is, so the light makeup is more than enough already, and it makes her eyes stand out nicely.Ah, she has a somewhat sensual air with her hair picked up into a bun and a ponytail. Its the effect of that which you cannot usually see, right? Its because she normally wears it hanging down, so we don't usually see the back of her neck,Yup, it is very natural and innocent, yet has a indecently lewd quality to it."Eldric, is something wrong?" - she asks while looking at usAh, we were staring."No, I was just taken with how beautiful Mako is."Ah...>We should refer to her as "my empress" in public, right?>I think its our priviledge to call her by her name in public>Other

(well, we're standing behind her)Or should we say we're ogl- appreciating her from behind?"Ah, I should refer to you as my ampress, after all.""Uuuh... but, I like when you call my name..." - she says while lifting her hands a little bit."Your highness, please don't move." - says the tailor"I'm sorry."Hn. Mako is just nice to everyone."Will you be free after this?""I wanted to take a bath, and then study playing the local instruments for a bit.""Hn. You can do that later, right?""...alright."So, once she's done with her measurements, we...>Take her out on her new dress>Take her out on her old, cute shool clothes.>Take her out on a practical adventurer's outfit.>Other

A part of me wants to dress her up in a miniskirt with a baggy but short shirt, since she's a monk. You probably forgot about that, didn't you?Well, she knows magic as well, so I guess she's more of a wizard that can punch you if you get too close?I guess can cast fist, uh?Anyway, as tempting as that may be, we decided to go with a comfy pair of pants and a short sleeved shirt, plus firm sandals (the type you tie up around your shins), and thick leather gauntlets.Yup, she's an adorable fighter girl.Of course, she has a ponytail. It wouldnt be complete without a ponytail."Eldric, how do I look?""Cute" - we answer withough hesitation"Eh.... not intimidating or mature?">Ah, yes yes, Mako looks super serious and scary>Nope.

Let's give her a kiss to have her forgive us.*kiss**kiss*"Uuuh~ Eldric, that's cheating...." - she complains a little bit from behind a shy smile"Well, that's the problem right there""Uh?""You're just so kissable." *kiss*"...uuuh~ I feel like Eldric's making fun of me...""Nope, you're really really kissable."She looks so beautiful when she blushes.Well, we have been in Blacklake before, so using [Treestride] to a street next to the markets.*** A few steps and thousands of miles away ***The sky is grey and cloudy, yet warm and nice to be out under. Its a pretty mellow day, quite a change from the tyrannical sun in Alquia.There's plenty of hummingbirds in hundreds of colors dancing around the flowers protuding from the decorative plants in every garden, and the air is full of the market sounds coming from just a street away."Ah, this is nice." - says our beautiful empress as she looks around on her tiptoesUhmm... I think we hadn't brought her here before, had we? Ami and Mai came along with her by default, while her alquian shadoes sent two of their number as well, giving us a full party despite it having only two visible members.We take Mako's hand, and smile to her as we head to the markets.The gnomes are more merchant than craftsmen, and so there's not many local specialties, though they do dabble quite a bit in engineering, so their designs get turned into goods by workers of every race and are on display before our eyes.Some of them even resemble, either in function or appearance, goods we normally used on ol' Earth, and so we see a modern-looking faucet (complete with flexible metal hose) for showers, collections of cutting tools, bolts and nuts, mixed in with what.,.. yeah, that's a lightbulb the size of an ostrich egg.It doesn't look like it is powered up by electricity, though, but by mana. Otherwise, the effect is the exact same.>Im more interested in how they're making the vacuum for the inside of the bulb>So, they're using a pirate version of our mana generators?>Other

>>2083348>>2082443>>2080912>>Im more interested in how they're making the vacuum for the inside of the bulbUhmm... asking about it brings us a wall in the form of 'trade secret'. I guess we'll have to look into it in a more detailed way later, and probably trade some information in exchange, just like last time.We'll have to write it down and... ah actually that may be a good idea for something we do literally, so let's write about it on our linked journal and explain that a vacuum is to Asmund and Okaba, see if they can figure it out in the meanwhile. If not, at least we did make a memo about it."Oh, these look so pretty." - Our lovely tomboy (though there's nothing even slightly tomboyish about her) monk crouches down all properly, keeping her knees together as she looks at some hair accessories displayed on a lower display.Well, when you take into account that gnomes are quite short to begin with, you can imagine that anything they place on a lower shelf is -really- low, after all.Hmm... it looks like our empress still prefers simple things after all. She's looking at some colorful flowers made of various alloys. They're not painted. Rather, the alloys themselves are arranged so artfully that their natural colors make a beautiful display.Well, it looks pretty, sure, but when you take into account that different metals will corrode at different rates, need polish with different substances, and age differently, these must be a pain to maintain...>Is alright, we have two lovely 'slaves' that have never been assigned any properly slave-like tasks. Taking care of their mistress jewelry sounds light enough, and yet slave-like enough that we can assign them to it without much worry.>Well, we can probably come up with a coating method to make it corrosion proof. We -are- a chemical engineer after all, so they would have a coat of a single substance and that would make it a lot easier to maintain.>Other

Im trying to get Aritsu, Lyann & Mako used to and involved into a power dynamid with Mako on top, thoughm so was looking for ways to have A&L take orders from her.Should we keep it only on a sexual level, or build on it slightly with daily tasks and chores?
>>2084104I'd prefer to keep it at a sexual, in-the-bedroom-only level.
>>2084114to be honest i feel a power exchange between them would already be sexual, though? Or do you mean 'only during sex' rather than 'in the bedroom'? Because I was thinking of A&L in collar, cuffs, and nothing else while in private, both in the bedroom or in our private beach (maybe the island as a whole?)
>>2084118By in-the-bedroom, I meant in private. So our private island would count. On the one hand, I would also like to have the maids there also be nude or wear only accessories, and be able to take them at our convenience. But on the other hand, it's also supposed to be a vacation home for our family as well, and I don't want to undermine the good (but still slightly pervy) employer image we have.
>>2084151yeah i think its fine on the island as a whole. As our slaves, we can just order the elf maids to not talk about A&L's nudity and/or 'status' to anyone unrelated, while the butler was appointed by Ren, and is quite trustworthy.I think 'using' the maids would be wrong since they're technically slaves (as in, actual slaves) so its abusing our position. Is probably fine if while we are in the bath one night a few of them walk in and offer to comfort their master on their own, and that can start such a trend, but I think it should be them who start it instead of us.***We buy the jewelry Mako liked, and place it on her hair. Its a multi colored gold, brass and silver set of flowers matching and competing against each other, standing out splendidly against the dark-wet background of Mako's midnight-colored hair.Yup, it looks really nice and stands out really beautifully. So much in fact, that the gnome wants to have Mako pose for some graphology images as advertisement."I-i don't know if I should... Eldric, what do I do?" - she asks us nervously>Well, if it means you can keep whatever he asks you to model with, I think its fine. Or at least get it at cost>We're pretty far from Alquia, but I don't think the empress should pose for commercials.>Actually, wouldn't it start a nice trend of commercial houses trying to get endorsed by the Alquian empress? I think its a good political move.>Other
>>2084175>Is probably fine if while we are in the bath one night a few of them walk in and offer to comfort their master on their own, and that can start such a trend, but I think it should be them who start it instead of us.Yes, it'd be perfectly fine if they're the ones that ask for it. They're women on an island that has pretty much only women, and little time or ability to go out and find boyfriends. On top of that, Eldric's charisma and appearance stats are pretty high, so he's like a male supermodel, too.>OtherWe should discuss this with the Vizier, and with Ren and her advisors, on if the visage of the Empress should be allowed to be used by businesses or foreign businesses, and if we should receive a portion of the profits.For now, see if we can get Ami or Mai to be the model instead.Normally the Empress shouldn't actively promote or endorse a product, but having her picture taken while wearing something during an official function, and that thing's maker (tailor, jeweler) make it part of their advertising campaign, should be okay.But I'd like to know if the Empire already has laws or traditions for this kind of thing.
