You are Lucan, a young man living in 2150 AD. The world is in a state of collapse, authoritarian regimes rule with an iron fist and Humanity slides into degradation.You awakened powers inside yourself only a few days ago when you absorbed the soul of a demon. Since then you learned that you might be half demonic yourself, and that the barrier between the Human world and the supernatural world was slowly weakening.Soon the world will be swamped with demons and monsters again and you decided to stop it, for a price of course. Being a Demon Hunter should pay well after all. This is your first mission, to investigate a town reporting missing people and corpses with no blood in them. Good luck.--Write Ins are always an option but stupid suggestions will be ignored. This is my first quest so bear with me here. Above all just have fun and try not to get yourself or anyone you care about killed.
>>2355353On your way to the wood mill you saw how barren the town had been, it was Saturday morning, but nobody was outside. The silence made you uncomfortable. When you finally found the place, you noticed how a strange mist clung to the wood mill. It didn’t look abandoned, the building itself didn’t even seem that old, but just like the town, no one was around to stop you from just walking inside. You got off your bike, jumped the fence, and went to the only entrance you saw. You pushed the door open and saw that the interior of the mill was pitch black. The windows had apparently been covered by something on the inside. You listened for a few moments, but you could hear nothing, so you stepped inside. You flipped the light switch, but the power was dead. You grabbed a small flashlight from your motor cycle and held it in your teeth, your hands were already occupied with a gun and knife, then slipped inside the building as quietly as you could manage. It was spacious, almost cavernous, and the air was unpleasantly damp. When you got to one of the windows you saw it had been covered with a thick coating of what looked like paper pulp. You stuck your knife in it and manage to break most of it off the window, light came flooding into the mill to reveal that the floor was covered in white dried up skin, like the discarded skin of a snake. You heard wood creaking and groaning under an inhuman weight, something was shuffling around in the dark hidden from your view. What do you do?>A. “Sorry to barge in uninvited but I got complaints about some blood sucking. Just needed to inspect the building for any vampires and ill be on my way.”>B.

From the last thread>Your hair has gone from its normal dirty blonde color to a stark bone white. Great, you look like an anime character now. >The hair should probably be dyed to avoid suspicion and reduce the number of snide comments of how he looks like hes cosplaying with all the black hes wearing.You can try to die your hair. See what happens.>“I obtained my powers only recently. Same with the hair, I was born a dirty blonde. Does that make me a half demon?”>For a genius hes very open about himself. Maybe that's just me and my paranoia.Thats the dialogue people wanted>Do we still have the fire axe?No you left it at the bar>Fires a gun in a house>No noise complaintslol the house was kinda out of the way, it being a mansion it had a lot of space between it and the other houses. Plus you did hear sirens when you were escaping. Davis' fireball sounded like a grenade going off too.>attacks Davis>A little disappointed that the consensus wasn't to join. some short term benefits would have been nice until the eventual back stab, be it from the MC or Davis.I dont think he would have back stabbed you if you went full evil>You flip to the section titled “Devil Arms” and you’re surprised that the book was written in modern English despite it seeming ancient. The information you could gather on what are called Devil Arms proved interesting. >what if its just some book magic to make itself comprehensible in any language?Could be>“Not demons, vampires! The blood is always gone from the corpses of the bodies that they have found. I betcha its vampires doing it and I don’t say that lightly. I ran into a vampire when I was a young man.”>I want to ironically suggest drinking the blood of a vampire, but I'm afraid of contracting vampire AIDS.You arent really even absorbing their blood desu, you are absorbing their souls. Their bodies are not really entirely physical so without their supernatural powers to sustain them, they disappear. Its not like you are straight up eating their corpses. Next vote breaks the tie btw
>>2355355>D. Look for a way to burn the mill down
>>2355691>>2355586>>2355568>>2355527>>2355502“What is it with me and burning things down lately.” You mumbled to yourself as you stepped outside and searched the area for something that would cause a fire. It took some time, but you eventually found a few oil drums. You cut the lids open on each and began throwing some into the windows of the mill. After throwing four drums into the mill you grabbed and fifth then soaked as much wood or any material that looked flammable as you could. Whatever creature that hid inside the mill made no move, so you shot the concrete floor a few times until the sparks caught on the oil. It didn’t take long for the mill to be engulfed in flames. It was just when you were getting worried that the cops might show up and try to arrest you for arson that things began to happen. Inside the mill you could hear loud shrieks, but it was Human at all, it sounded almost like buzzing. Then, before you could react, the roof exploded sending debris flying everywhere. You rolled out of some burning piece of the roof that tumbled your way and snapped your attention back to the skies. There were four giant black insects. They looked like a cross between a fly and a wasp, with demonic features all over their warped bodies. Each one was about the size of a minivan. Their eyes had a strangely colorful, almost beautiful quality to them as they all stared malignantly down at you. Their gaze would have paralyzed a normal Human, but you managed to resist their bewitching eyesight. On each of their wings they had images of skulls on them, they emanated an aura of death and their barbed stingers dripped with an acidic poison.One of the insects flew at you with amazing speed, you could barely keep up with it despite your enhanced reflexes.

>>2355824>>A. Throw your knife at it
>>2355824>D. Shoot itDon't throw away our only melee weapon.
>>2357271>>2356204You threw your knife at the demon bugs head with amazing speed. It shot through the air as fast as a bullet and as soon as it impacted the head of the fly demon, its head exploded in a fountain of gore while the knife traveled still deeper into the body. Just as the fat corpse of the fly demon fell to the ground, you felt jaws close around your right shoulder. Another fly had gripped you with its mandibles and was pumping some poison into you with its proboscis. You brought your left fist smashing into its eye, throwing the fly off you and into a nearby fence but before you could bring your gun up to shoot it, you felt your right arm go numb. You looked down to see it dangling at your side uselessly.Quickly you grabbed the pistol from your paralyzed right hand and brought it to bear on the wounded fly, sending a few shots into its other eye, blinding it completely. Before you could kill it, you heard the buzz of another bug from behind you, and without looking you managed to backflip over the fly as it charged you. You barely eked out a dodge as the hairs on the flies back grazed the fingers on your numb arm. You landed on your feet and brought your gun up at the fly that had just missed you. You were feeling angrier than you’ve ever felt before. The rage was exhilarating, the feel of combat was extremely fun, even if you were terrified. What do you do?>A. Try to force more power into your gun>B. Grab the fly and throw it into the burning mill>C. Write In

I kind of liked that ask, It would have been a nice memento. We could have added a plates of metal to reinforce the wood handle (was it wood?), melt some silver onto the blade. find a priest crazy and willing enough to bless it.>>2357499>A. Try to force more power into your gunhuh, make a demon gun thing. ok then, sure go for it.
>>2357650Why do you want that fire axe? If you guys play your cards right you'll be getting much better stuff soon
>>2357545You should archive it at suptg friend, before your hard work is lost forever.
>>2357663Guys? Both of those were be. I thought it would be a nice reminder of the first Demon Lucan killed and absorbed. Plus you mentioned weapons can be imbued with subjugated demons right?
>>2357499>A. Try to force more power into your gun.
>>2357499>B. Grab the fly and throw it into the burning mill
>>2358607>>2357852>>2357650Before pulling the trigger, you get an idea. You’re not sure how you knew you could force power into your gun, but it just feels natural. As you pool energy into the pistol in your left hand, blue lightning coalesces around the barrel of the gun. Soon, the entire pistol was crackling with power.When you pull the trigger this time it sounds less like a gunshot and more like an explosion. The force of the blast knocks your hand back and knocks you off balance. The entire back half of the demon flies body was turned into a red mist and the trees behind it exploded into dust as soon at the bullet touched them. You charged the pistol again and finished off the blinded fly, this time the entire creature exploded as if a bomb went off from inside of it. The last fly swooped down at you, but you rolled out of its way at the last minute. You charged you pistol again and took aim at its body. As the last second the fly dodged downwards, and your charged shot only hit its wings, obliterating both. The fly slammed onto the ground and before it could reorient itself to attack, you did a running kick into the fly’s side, sending it into the burning mill. Insectoid screams of agony came from the burning mill as the walls collapsed in on themselves.The job seemed to be done here. What do you do now?>A. Absorb the Fly’s>B. Search the other places >C. Collect your reward>D. Wait for Robbie and Tim

>>2359421We should probably pool our money between the three of us. Its not like were going to spend much of it while travelling around to jobs and the guys can use it to locate new info or gear for us.
>>2359284>>A. Absorb the Fly’s
>>2359327Lol sorry, often I have to run an errand but I keep an eye on the thread. I also dont like writing unless I get around three votes so that usually takes some time. Im trying to keep up, I promise.
>>2359327>>2359346>>2359389>>2359414>>2360317>>2360456>>2361027You walked from each mangled corpse of the fly’s, absorbing each one quicker than you would have thought. The act of absorbing other creatures felt extremely pleasurable and as the black blood flowed into you, your arms feeling returned. You managed to find your knife, but it had been nearly destroyed by the impact on the fly demons head. It was useless now, so you just threw it over your shoulder and inspected the wood mill after it finished burning. Everything inside had been thoroughly scorched so it was hard to navigate the ruined building. You saw nothing of interests, so you went back to your bike, fired it up, and drove back to the old man’s house.As you drove you phoned Robbie and Tim. They answered on the third ring. “What’s up?” asked Tim.“Hey, I got to ask you guys a favor. While you’re driving up here can you try and research something for me?” Tim grunted in confirmation, so you continued “It’s a demon I ran into. Looks like a giant fly crossed with a wasp. Colorful eyes and a nasty bite. Should have brought some bug spray.”“Shit dude are you alright?” You hear Robbie ask in the background. You were on speaker. “Yeah. They wanted a piece of me, literally, but I guess I was just too spicy for them. Don’t worry I’m okay. I just want to know is they have any weakness.” “Maybe we need to find an expert on this sort of stuff? I’ll look for what you want but there’s only so much I can do.” Tim said.“Thanks.” You hung up as you pulled into the old mans driveway. You knocked on the door twice and he popped his head out. “Its done. Demons are dead, they weren’t vampires though. More like demonic mosquitos. Anyways, here to collect my pay.”The man took one look at you. Your left side was covered in red and black blood. Your clothes had been tattered and ripped almost everywhere, like you just got out of a warzone. He met your eyes and you gave him a shrug and wry smile. “I look like hell, don’t I? Don’t worry, I’m fine. Getting beat up is something you have to deal with when you hunt demons.”The old man muttered a response and went back inside. He came back with a handful of crumpled dollars. It added up to about $1000 bucks. You didn’t really feel like haggling and the old man didn’t seem like he was holding out on you, so you shrugged and gave him your phone number. “Call if you have any more problems. My services come with a thirty-day demon free guarantee.”
>>2361124Just to be safe you decided to check out the other places. After an hour of wandering around the sewers, you gave that up and moved to the lake. You found some discarded egg shells on some trees, almost definitely the eggs of the demon Fly’s. You counted a total of fifteen eggs, so that meant trouble. The Fly’s didn’t seem to be in the town. Perhaps they left to hunt somewhere else?It was at this time that Tim gave you a call. You answered your phone with a “what’s up?”“Hey” It was Robbie this time “we are just getting into town now and we have some info you wanted on the bugs. It took going on a lot of weird satanic cultist websites and crazy occultist articles, but we found out that apparently these bugs are known as ‘Sons of the Fly Lord’. The Fly Lord is more popularly known as Beelzebub from Abrahamic demonology. Apparently, he is a top devil and you just ran into his babies.”“Well I guess that means I probably pissed off there daddy then. I’m just making all sorts of enemies lately, aren’t I?”“Guess it comes with the job.” Robbie said “Hey man we are at the motel. You gonna come or what?’ The day was getting late. What do you do?A.

>>2361161>A. Rest at the motel for the night with Tim and Robbie

>>2361292>>2361235>>2361217“I still got to finish something up first. Hey while you’re here, can you try finding me a weapon? That knife kinda broke. Ill be at the motel soon.” You hung up and set out deeper into the woods, dead set on hunting down every last demon fly. The sun was going to set soon but you couldn’t let that stop you from finding the rest of the Fly’s. After about two hours you come upon a grove of withered trees. Each one looked blackened and dead, the life drained from them. In the distance there was a light, maybe a fire of some sort. You followed it closer and closer until you finally came into a clearing.There was something like an open door, or perhaps a portal. Multi colored lights flowed out of it in every direction. It was strangely alluring and disturbing at the same time. Around the door was ten demon fly’s, all staring into the portal as if in a trance. They hadn’t noticed you yet.What do you do?>A.

I'll, be on for about an hour or two. Sorry it was a long day at work
>>2361421>>2361442>>2361495>>2361517You charged your pistol again as you lined up about four Fly’s into your sights. The blue lightning rippled over your pistol and streamed into the barrel. The feeling was almost like flexing a muscle, the sensation felt good, but it took some effort. As you pulled the trigger, the charged energy you had pooled just flowed away, like it was being drained from you. The trigger clicked to no effect. You tried to charge your gun again, but it was drained of its power for a second time. The demon fly’s were still staring into the prismatic doorway.“Lucan” A voice whispered to you. It sounded almost like it was coming from inside your own head “…Lucan” it repeated.“Yes?” you said in a whisper as you glanced around quickly, your pistol still pointed at the demon fly’s.“Step through the door Lucan. I want to see your face.” The voice said. You knew whatever was speaking to you right now had been draining your charged shots. Its voice was soothing but quiet.What do you do?>A. Walk through the door>B. “Are you serious? Sorry pal, I don’t have a death wish.”>C. Write In

>>2363711>>2363694>>2363664“Are you serious? Sorry pal, I don’t have a death wish.” You said, in your usual flippant manner “Introductions first, who the hell are you anyways?”“Lucan…” the voice whispered again “Do you need to be told everything? You’ve heard my name once before today.”“Ah so you’re the king of the bugs I’ve been swatting at all day. Look, Humans are under my protection now, so how about you go bite some angels in the ass.”“What a tongue you have on you, Human.” The voice had an edge to it now “Not even a month into your awakening and you speak to me so brazenly. Such disrespect deserves punishment.”“Yeah yeah, I’m real scared now.” You said as you pointed your pistol at the portal once more. You charged it but before you could fire the power drained from the pistol. This time, however, you struggled against the unknown force eating away at your energy. It was a battle of wills, your mind against the incomprehensible mind of the monster inside the portal. It took a while, but you overpowered the force fighting against you and fully charge your pistol. You shot the portal with the empowered bullet and the doorway shattered like glass. Instantly the force pushing against you stopped.“Lucan!’ the voice was enraged now. The demon fly’s melted into a black blood and all ten of them coalesced into a pool, their life forces mingling and forming something else. A new abomination took shape from the black blood.
>>2363748The black blood abomination rose up, it stood nearly 13 feet tall. It looked absolutely horrifying, something straight from nightmare. Of all the demons you’ve dealt with in your short time as a demon hunter, you hadn’t felt anything quite this strong. This wouldn’t be some push over like the shadow or the fly’s before.It rushed at you without hesitation. It was just as fast as you were, and it looked like it might very well be stronger too.What do you do?>A. Use a tree as a club and engage in melee>B. Charge shot it >C.

>>2363843>>2363820>>2363800>>2363776You turned and ran. It wasn’t the manliest thing you could have done, but that monster really did intimidate you. Despite its great size, the abomination almost managed to keep up with you. The only thing letting you keep a good distance was the trees of the forest that slowed it down, so you just kept weaving through them to build up more distance between the two of you. You ran through a quick overview of the town map the old man had showed you. You could think of a few places that you might be able to go. What do you do?>A. Go to the police station >B. Go to the gun store>C. Run to the gas station >D. Go to the china shop >E. Write In
>>2366611>C. Run to the gas station Big Explosion Big Success!
>>2366611>B. Go to the gun store
>>2366755>gun storeWe need a stronger gun to charge, maybe a 12 gauge and some slugs
>>2366755>>2366727>>2366848It was a toss up between the gun shop and gas station, either would probably have something capable of doing some damage but you ultimately decided on the gas station. A big explosion is just what you needed right now, and it was closer. You ran for a few blocks, the abomination close behind and gaining on you. As the gas station came into to sight you were relived to see that it didn’t have any customers for the moment, it was midnight after all. There was also a gasoline truck parked in the lot that you hoped was full.Before you could think any further one of the abominations massive tentacle like arms wrapped around you and lifted you off your feet. It lowered you head first into its giant malformed mouth, the hideous teeth dripped with a vile saliva. You were just a few feet from having your head bitten off like a gingerbread man when you flexed your arms with all the strength you had and broke its grip on you. While you were still in the air you spun and delivered a drop kick right on what you assumed was the abominations head. The sounds of bones cracking and crumpling under the force of your attack was satisfying.You were still dropping to the street when the abominations massive right arm smashed into you and propelled you through the gas station building. You crashed through the windows, passed the aisles, and finally stopped when you hit the cooler. All sorts of cheap drinks poured over you, soaking your clothes are you laid on the floor waiting for your head to stop spinning. When the room was steady again to stood up and looked around the gas station. Energy drinks and candies were all over the floor. The clerk was still standing unharmed in the booth you had just crashed through seconds before. The abomination was outside bellowing at you. You could see a double-barreled shotgun on the floor, likely hidden behind the counter for the cashier to use in case of a robbery. What do you do? >A. Grab an energy drink>B. Pick up the shotgun >C. Eat some gummy worms >D. Write In
>>2366848Oops sorry didnt see your post until I posted the update. I break ties if the vote is taking too long.

>>2367073>>2366991>>2366949You got up and dusted yourself off, bones cracked as you rolled your shoulders and arched your head back. You pulled a bag of gummy worms off the shelf and ripped it open, then you stuffed the sour candies in your mouth as you stepped up to the shotgun on the floor.“Hey pal” you said, your voice muffled from all the gummy worms you chewed on “Might want to get out of here. This could get ugly.” The cashier nodded and ran away, his pants thoroughly stained. You bent down and picked up a can of Redgrave SSS that was lying near the shotgun, your preferred energy drink of choice. You downed another fistful of gummies then took a long drink from the Redgrave. Energy flowed back into your weary limbs, you realized it had been nearly twelve hours since you last ate or drank but you felt much better now.You brought your fist down on a radio to your left, changing the music that had been playing to something more appropriate. The new song began to play, and you turned the volume as high as it would go.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OEC5p0Pr8UYou pulled your pistol out from your back pocket with your left hand then you kicked the shotgun off the floor into your right hand, aiming both guns directly at the abomination that was charging you. You casually walked out of the hole you made in the gas station, the glass shards cracked as you stepped on them.“Lets rock!” You shouted>A. Charge your pistol and shotgun >B.

>>2368078I pray that the trail mix survives. Those are great on the road.
>>2368078>>2367823>>2367439>>2367314You weaved and dodged the abominations attacks flawlessly, amazed at your own skill and speed. Now that the fight was in full gear you had got into a fighting mindset and blocked out all your fears. It was exhilarating to be risking your life like this, even though you realized how crazy you were being. As the abomination brought one of its giant fists down you rolled out of the way then followed up with a roundhouse kick to the abominations chest before it could recover. It gasped as your kick knocked all the air out of its chest and you shoved the shotgun inside of its mouth and pulled the trigger. The abominations head was thrown back by the shotgun blast, blood and bits of teeth flew in every direction as its huge body stumbled backwards until it bumped against the side of the gasoline truck.You charged both your pistol and shotgun up, putting as much energy as either weapon would hold until they were both vibrating with blue lightning. When you pulled the trigger, the gunshots were more like explosions, the sheer power of the blast lifted you off your feet and sent you tumbling across the street. As you were still rolling, the gasoline truck erupted in a pillar of fire that ignited the gas station and caused another even bigger explosion. The searing heat covered your body with mild burns even at the distance you were at, it was a good thing you’d been thrown back so far otherwise you might’ve been toast.When you sat back up you looked over at the burning remnants of the gas station, the abomination was still alive, but covered in fire and missing its right arm. You were getting tired now. The longer this fight went on the more exhausted you felt. You couldn’t charge your guns again, the energy inside you was all but depleted. The burns and injuries you’d just sustained were slowly healing but you didn’t know how much more punishment you could take. You stood up on unsteady legs, your clothes nearly all destroyed. Is every fight going to end up with you in the nude?Police sirens started wailing in the distance. Great, another problem. What do you do?>A. Grab a street sign and use it as an axe>B.

Apparently whatever energy you were using to charge them also gave you infinite ammo. Nice. After a few dozen shots placed around the head you dropped the shotgun, placed the pistol in the back pocket of your shredded pants then sprinted at the stop sign nearest to you. It took very little effort to rip it from the ground. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASKb-u4Vt5gThe abomination was clearly having a hard time of it. It was limping towards you like some mindless predator, its body still wreathed in flame but apparently that wasn’t bothering it too much anymore. It was your turn to charge at it now. With the street sign in your hand you rushed him in a blur of speed and moved to the side of a slow, desperate punch the abomination managed to throw at you. You cleaved the street sign into the abominations side, guts and blood shot out in a fountain of gore. You brought the sign down again and chopped off another one of its tentacle arms then you followed up by jumping into the air with everything you had. At the height of your jump you brought the sign down on the creature’s head in a plunging strike, the attack was enough to cut deep into the skull.You stood there breathing heavily as the abomination swayed from side to side. Its mouth was drooping open and its body was rigid. That last attack had destroyed whatever brains it had. After a few moments the abomination fell backwards in a loud crash, burning lifelessly.Police began pulling into the lot and you could hear a helicopter flying around somewhere. Shit, looks like you might be on the news tonight.What do you do?>A. Absorb the abomination >B. Run>C. Write In

>>2372199>>2372160>>2372233Black blood flowed into your hand as the body of the abomination was absorbed into you. Your flesh crawled with all amount of blood you were taking it; the rush of power was almost too great. You collapsed to the floor, you head pounded with the worst headache you’d ever felt. Once more you were visited with visions of hell and felt the torment of the underworld. For what seemed like hours your body was ripped apart and rejoined. You woke up in hell. In front of you were three eyes of burning light. Each one was a different color. One was red, another blue, and the last yellow. The red one burned with an unnatural heat, the blue chilled you to the marrow, and the yellow buzzed with power. To the left side was the marble statue of yourself you saw earlier at your awakening. To your right was a small thin man curled in the fetal position.What do you do?>A. Touch the red light>B. Touch the blue light>C. Tough the yellow light >D. Walk to the marble statue>E.

This will determine a new power up and potentially a revelation. So choose wisely.

>>2372411>>2372347>>2372333>>2372320You walked over to the man. He was deathly thin and huge chunks of his flesh were missing from his body, almost like he had been mauled by an animal, but he wasn’t bleeding. His hair was dirty blonde and his eyes were blue, the same color as yours.It took you a moment before you realized that you were staring at yourself. This man was you, he just looked almost unrecognizable from the severe anorexia and grievous wounds. The man who looked identical to you was cowering on the floor and whispering to himself. Despite his frail form you sensed a certain strength inside him. You reached down and placed your hand on his shoulder, the physical contact seemed to comfort him as his ragged breaths became more relaxed.You saw flashes of your life. All your more cherished memories, the parts of your life that made it worth living for. The parts of you that made you want to hunt demons, to protect the innocent. When you awoke on the street you felt a new power inside of you.

All your injuries were healed when you woke up. Police were getting out of their cars and surrounding you, the helicopter you had heard earlier was hovering above you and pointing a search light directly on you. Fire trucks and paramedics were also there but it was hard to see what was happening in the confusion. You quickly raised a hand against the searchlight to shield your face from any cameras.What do you do?>A. Stay there and let the police do what they want>B. Run away >C. Write In
>>2373626>A. Stay there and let the police do what they wantToo late to run now, I think.
>>2373655>let the police do what they wantWe can always leave if we want
>>2373815>>2373655The police and paramedics were stunned that you weren’t hurt. Your clothes were shredded to ribbons and you were plastered in dried blood and filth but when they checked you over you didn’t have a single scratch. They placed you in the back an ambulance and drove you to the hospital to get checked again. Another officer came after you’d been cleared and asked you about two dozen questions. You didn’t think they suspected you and you made up the best lies you could. After a few hours they let you go, not knowing what else to do with you. They did however check your ID.You wandered back through the woods, jumped on your bike, then rode off to the motel where Robbie and Tim were staying. You’d been cleaned up at the hospital and got some fresh clothes so at least you wouldn’t look like you’d crawled out of a pit when you finally met up with them.You found their room and knocked on the door. Tim answered and when he saw your face gave you a weird look.“Lucan what the hell, did you blow up that gas station?” was the first thing out of his mouth. You pushed by him and threw yourself down on a crappy chair in the corner.“Yeah well, I did but I just wanted to blow up the gasoline truck next to it. Guess I went a little overboard, huh.” “No shit you did.” Tim was sounding very frustrated. “You could have gotten people killed! You’re lucky no one got hurt man. What are you thinking attracting this much attention to yourself?!” “Im fine thanks for askin.” You said coolly “And I really didn’t have enough time to think when I was being chased by some horror from beyond. Why don’t you try fighting demons and coming up with some sort of master plan mid battle? Its not easy. Look no one got hurt, just relax. Robbie came out from the kitchen area with a pizza box in his hand. “Just calm down Tim everything. Lucans alive, demons dead, and we got pizza.” He set the pizza down on one of the beds. “Oh yeah I also got you something special. A weapon no demon can withstand.”You raised an eyebrow as Robbie turned around and started digging through a drawer. He pulled out a bible and threw it in your lap. “Fuck you” you said as you threw the bible back at him.
>>2374155You hung out with Robbie and Tim late into the night and gave them each a few hundred dollars for coming up to the town, even though they didn’t really do much. You all left for home after another day of resting at the motel.On the way home Robbie said he would send you everything he could find about Demon Hunter jobs and leads for work. He had been scouring the internet for a few days and he thought he might have some more work for you. He’d email you any leads when he got them.When you got back to your shitty apartment you saw that the door to your room had been smashed in. The insides of your apartment had been trashed and ransacked. Fucking druggies must’ve robbed you while you were out. They even took the cold pizza and beer you had in the fridge. Your TV was smashed, and everything was scattered on the floor. Great.You sat down in your favorite chair, which was thankfully unharmed, and kicked back. You had a few thousand dollars in your pocket. What should you do now?>A. Read the Black Book>B. Spend some cash>C. Check your email>D.

>>2374526>>2374415You checked your email and saw a few interesting things Robbie had sent you.One was another job about a ghost. Another town was looking for help with some sort of exorcism. The details were fuzzy.The next one was about a “supernatural specialist” meet up in an island called Jura, a small isolationist nation near Iceland. Robbie was suggesting you might be able to find some more information on demons here. The last interesting email wasn’t from Robbie. It was from Davis Levi…It read “Lucan. Give us back the book and we will let things go. We don’t have to fight.”A chill ran down your spine. You had a good guess about who trashed your place now.What do you do?>A. Read the Black Book>B. Spend some cash>C. Take the ghost job>D. Go to the supernatural specialist meetup>E. Tell Davis you’ll give him back the book>F. Tell Davis to screw himselfG. Write In

>>2374960>>2374967>>2375676>>2375961You got the black book from your motorcycle and trudged back upstairs to throw yourself down on your favorite chair again with your feet propped up. You opened the book again and looked at the chapters. Which one do you read?>A. Dis Mundii & Demonic Succession >B. The Age of the Fish>C. Angels & Demons >D. Demonic Channeling>E. Other Supernatural Entities >F. Spells
>>2376009How about all of it?
>>2376047This, use our super genius+demon upgrade to power through it.
>>2376009Start from the top.
>>2376009>A. Dis Mundii & Demonic Successionto start off
>>2376009>A. Dis Mundii & Demonic Succession Fine we start from the beginning. Jeez
>>2378273>>2378213>>2376409>>2376333>>2376047The book starts off by recounting legends and myths centered around Dis Mundii. Dis Mundii is the demon emperor of the underworld and the most powerful Devil in the world. He usurped the throne of Hell from Samael, who in turn usurped it from Lucifer, the original demon king who was killed sometime in the early 1st century. Dis Mundii has controlled all the demons and devils of hell for over one hundred years and the book speculates about the grand plan he has put into action to invade the Human world. Dis Mundii hates Humans and sees their lives as wasteful. He wants to escape from hell and create his own universe in the physical world but ever since the coming of a figure called “The Fisher” he has been trapped in hell. The Demonic Succession refers to the various Devils that have ruled as Demon Kings of Hell. Lucifer was the first and ruled for almost four thousand years. Lucifer was mostly a corrupter, he didn’t hate humanity, he mostly wanted to turn them against God. Next was Samael, whose name means “Blind God” in Aramaic. Samael sought to hide the true nature of the universe from Humanity and his influence led to the dark ages and the rise of oppressive religions throughout the world. There exists a difference between demons and devils. A demon is one of the many denizens of hell, they are parasitic and chaotic. Devils are much more powerful and dangerous. While demons exist like species of animals, devils are always unique beings. A Devil is only matched in power by Arch Angels or Gods of polytheism. The book contains illustrations of several devils. You find one on The Lord of Flies, Beelzebub.
>>2378917You flip to the section titled “The Age of the Fish” which is by far the smallest section and contains mostly speculation on how it began and when it will end. The Age of the Fish began at the death of a figure called “The Fisher” who is correlated with the historic Jesus Christ, though the black book contains some contrary information on what you know of Jesus. Some theories propose that The Fisher wasn’t Jesus Christ but his Thirteenth Apostle, an unknown man. The Age of the Fish began shortly after the death of Jesus Christ and fully separated the spirit world and the physical world. Demons, angels, Gods, and many other beings were banished from this world into their native realms of existence. The barrier that separates the worlds was too powerful for anyone to pass through and only creatures with strong physical presences, like Vampires or Werewolf’s managed to stay in the Human world. Humanity has existed in a precarious peace away from supernatural monsters for two thousand years, and in that peace, technology has developed. Free from the influence of the otherworlds, Humanity had begun to find its own destiny.The Age of the Fish is prophesized to end around the mid-22nd century. The weakening of the barriers between the worlds was set to begin on the year of your birthday… Strange timing.
>>2378953The section titled “Angels” had been completely ripped out of the book. No pages talking about the remained. Looks like someone was trying to hide something.The parts talking about demons went into their natures and powers. Demons were inherently parasitic, they needed to feed off the power of other creatures, usually their essence, to keep on living. Some demons could feed off strong emotions like fear, but usually what they wanted were souls. If a demon went too long without eating a soul, be it Human, angel, or something else, they began to starve and waste away into a simple weak evil spirit which could do little harm. In the great battles between Heaven, Hell, and the Gods of polytheism, demons would devour the corpses of whoever they killed to satiate their endless hunger. Angels were considered the most prized delicacy for a hungry demon.Several Clans of demons existed, each with their own patron. Beelzebub had the Mydas Clan of demon fly’s, Baphomet had the Goat Clan of demon goats, and Lilith had the Lilin Clan of succubi, though many more clans existed. Virtually every Devil had a clan made up of their own children, except for Dis Mundii. The book didn’t explain why the demon emperor refused to create his own clan but apparently it was quite ordinary for Devils to use their children as soldiers.You even found a section on the shadow creature you fought. Apparently, it was one of the weakest and most cowardly demons. Well, good thing that was the first one you came across. Shadows were just sentient pools of demonically infused blood, nothing special.
>>2378982Demonic Channeling wasn’t anything special, you had already been doing it so most of the information on how to do it was redundant. Apparently very powerful Devils could charge machines, especially firearms, to shoot magical bolts of energy much like ammunition, effectively giving whichever gun they used infinite ammo. Extremely powerful devils could even charge weapons with this energy to deliver devastating attacks. Your demon daddy must’ve been a very powerful devil for you to be capable of demonic channeling.
>>2378992The section on other supernatural entities didn’t have much on it. It talked about a few prominent figures linked to the Old Gods of myth and legend.The pantheons talked about were the Egyptian Gods, the Hindu Gods, and the Norse Gods. Most other pantheons were largely made up or consisted of minor spiritual beings, but these Gods were as powerful and dangerous as any Devil or Arch Angel.The three most talked about Gods were Odin, Vishnu, and Ra. They were referred to as “The Three Wise Men” who at one point shared the earth and fought against the evil gods and demons. They were the patrons of mankind who were eventually cast out of the Human world at the beginning of the Age of the Fish. These pagan Gods fought demons and angels alike and the Nephilim of biblical myth were the Giants, Titans, or Asuras of ancient myth. These Gods were said to still exist somewhere deep in the otherworld in a weakened form. The God of the Abrahamic religions, Yahweh, had almost no information on it. It was characterized as a powerful and elusive God which had successfully created world dominating religions. Yahweh had a very powerful influence on the material world and it knew many secrets of the universe. The first Devils were defectors from Yahweh’s angels. There is another section devoted to minor beings like Nymphs or Werewolf’s. They were real but very rare. Most had either died or gone into hiding. Most creatures of myth were seemingly real at one point. The book didn’t go into how to find them.The book contains an image of an unnamed Goddess.
>>2379033The section titled “Spells” was very confusing to you. It contained symbols you weren’t familiar with and contained terminology you didn’t know. Some spells were about summoning demons, others were about evoking powerful and deadly attacks. Some were things like teleportation or alchemy. You didn’t know how to cast any though, you’d probably need a lot of help to do that. It took a few hours, but you finally finished the Black Book. You knew far more about the world than most other Humans did, but the book was not introductory. A lot of basic information wasn’t included so it would probably take more study into esoteric fields of the occult to gain a better understanding. Heaven was apparently real, and there existed multiple Gods. Magic existed too, in some form. You also knew much more about the hierarchy of hell.What do you do now?>A. Spend some cash>B.

The setting is sort of cyberpunk for the first thread right? Maybe we find some with a black smithing hobby.Actually scratch that. Buy a collapsible baton and and the knuckle dusters. Also check if your passport ID is up to date. Never know when you need to go over seas for business trips. Also contact your buddies and verify if their passport are up to date just on case. And don't forget to buy some hair dye and a hat.>You raised an eyebrow as Robbie turned around and started digging through a drawer.

You managed to keep your pistol.Yes, two pistols do stack so you'd be doing more damage with another one. They dont need to be reloaded. You could probably get one to match your antique pistol, but it would be harder to find so I just suggested other pistol options.

Gotta say is dual wielding the best choice? Ah who am I kidding it's the rule of cool and shooting simultaneously at two different targets will probably be a thing.If this was any other quest I would have some concerns about dual wielding, like having a free hand.
