"Don't worry, I wont do anything to disturb your church... But now you got me curious", I say as my face grows more mischievous "What would you do to.. 'convert' me?""..."Marianne becomes silent as I turn on the heat. She mouths at me, hesitant to talk."...lashing," she mumbled. Hiding it under her breath.I tease her, acting as I didn't hear. "Sorry, Drilly, say again?""L-Lashing! Whipped until the skin is drenched in blood or when you comply-- I, didn't want to say after I thought of something...impure. It's, it's shameful. Utterly sinful!"Marianne looks down, shameful at her words as she puts together her hands near her face. Acting in a girlish way that juxtaposed her appearance; the tall and proud woman now feeble at the heart, a damsel within her core."Aah, cute you are when you're whole demeanor changes to a fantasizing girl. I won't tell anybody what you said. Just between the two of us.""..C-Can we move on then?" Marianne pleaded adorably."Very well~ I don't suppose that you can spar with me? I would like to know how to wield a sword as well as you do~"Again, Marianne's head goes into deviancy, driving her in circles. "I don't understand."> "What don't understand, Drilly?

My stamina isn't the best, and it wouldn't hurt to get some martial experience."I stop hovering over Marianne, letting her get up while she studies me. She was dumfounded; suspicious as I'm proven tricky."Sure. T-That'll be good. Will the training grounds do?""Hmm...Seems fine but what about the soldiers?""They should be out by now," Marianne assured. She goes to the door, freezing before she held the doorknob in a fit of worriment.. Looking back at me she opened it, watchful for anything I did. She sighed in relief, my previous actions taking a toll. "Follow me. I'll lead you down there.""Great," I said, gathering Cheru and Yoksha. I pulled Fenrir's tail which instantly woke her up. She didn't have time to say anything as I dragged her on the ground. To escape my rough handling she delve into my shadow. "What was that for, master?!" "We're going with Drilly for a little spar between us. I also needed to dish out some punishment for being oblivious to your sister.""Was it really my fault!""Yes, yes it was.""Moo~ Fine!">(Cont.)
>>2897643At the headquarters' training grounds it was only Marianne and my company who were occupying it. I told Cheru to sit at the bench, leaving Yoshka and Fenrir with her for safety reasons. The sun's rays radiate warmth as it's high over the whole building and yard. It was a nice day out.Stepping into an outline that cut out a decent amount of room on both of our sides, we get ready. Marianne has gone over the rules as this point; stop attacking if the opponent yields or is knocked unconscious, no destructive magic that'll harm the environment or spectators, and if either side crosses outside the white line it's their loss. Very basic.Before the spar began I pitched a wager."Though I wouldn't object to a little bet, winner gets to tell the other to do something?" I say, getting real breathy at the end of my sentence."You sure?" Marianne said, taking my offer into account. The moment her eyes lit up was the moment I caught her. "If you lose you can't bail, Nemo.""I agree. Shall we start?""Yes. The winner gets to tell the loser to do something, correct?"I nod, confirming for her."Then it is."Marianne and I get into a stance. Her sword unsheathed she started counting, my legs itching to move as she got closer to one."Three, two, one...GO!"With a resounding shout she charged in with great speed at me, readying her blade in a unreadable way.> Attack head-on (write-in)> Defend (write-in)> Restrain (write-in)> Other?/Write-in

Marianne then picks up her sword, lowering her arms and tilting the blade back into stance. Casting torrent, she shot out at me, colliding with my barrier.> Roll 1d100

But take your time, Mommy can wait!"Not knowing much of what I'm saying, Yoshka pointed at my magic bag beside her using his tail. Cheru opened it, and to her amazement, felt around the void within the bag. She dug into it deeper, and with the help of Fenrir they both found the tusk sword. During the process, Cheru almost fell inside. Fenrir saving her narrowly by grabbing her ears."This Mommy?" Cheru says, waving the ebony sword."Yes dea-- Woah! That's not nice, Drilly."Almost hitting me, Marianne gave me a piece of advice, "Look here, Nemo. An opponent who turns their backs are begging to have a blade stuck into them. Common knowledge."I jump away from her, maintaining the gap between us. With a cute yelp, Cheru threw the sword in my general direction. Catching it, I raised it against Marianne's own."Let's see how I fare in swordplay. Never used one before."Marianne's showed a bewildered face, but reverting back into a deep focus, "You're kidding?""Nope~! I don't know how sword work!"And just like that I took the initiative, lunging at her with blade and blade. I had the upper hand as the tusk was light, allowing me to swing faster. But to Drilly's credit, she immediately went on the defensive, blocking me at every turn.> Try to bash Marianne's head with the hilt> Continue to attack and power through> Try to trip her> Other?/Write-in

>>2898685>>2898692>>2898703>90Sliding my leg forcefully to the side of hers, she trips on the ground while the sword she was handling clanged by her side. Marianne made an attempt to grab it back but I restrained her with horrid grasp. The amount of hands I had to make were many because of her strength that can easily over power just a few, a number of over six just for one arm.All of her limbs were held down, the hands wrapping around her as she struggles to move. I climb unto Marianne, placing my knees on her arms as well. Sitting down on her chest, the way I folded my legs made my thighs look thicker, attracting her eyes to them. Stroking her body, I make my hands slowly go up to her face as I feel her skin.

>>2898796I think we're a pretty normal crowd all things consideredTorture monsters, acquire cute things
>>2898800I was more referring to the fact that we've forgotten or overlooked something by pure accident or thought of some odd plan that worked out in the end by the seat of our pants.I still enjoyed our past talks about slavery and the ideas on how to abolish it effectively without it turning into a complete shitshow.
Whilst Marianne's eyes wonder to my legs I tap her on the forehead lightly to get her attention. "Eyes on my mask, Drilly."She looks up to me but her eyes still take a glance now and then. "I..I yield.""I think we both knew that, but I on the other hand want to enjoy myself a little more. Good thing the soldiers are out, right~?""What?!"I take off my mask, letting the paralysis set in on Marianne's body. "Side dishes before the feast, as always, Drilly." I lean over, kissing her on the cheeks and progress my way slowly to her lips. And just like the time I was before the mage's guild, I wholeheartedly kiss mouth to mouth. I could hear Marianne's heartbeat drum crazily as I pour my passion in, a tempting honey; a deceptive poison.Having my fill I pick up myself over her, putting on my mask in which Marianne could move again. I wasn't done there though. I shuffle back into position, knees over arms and hovering over her."Now about that bet.""I-I thought that's what you wanted," Marianne said meekly; the lion now a kitten."Why don't you tell me what you would've ask me if you won? Please, spare no details."At this point she doesn't have the mental endurance to think clearly, and under my submission she told me her plan. "...I wanted to..." she swallows her throat before moving on. "I...wanted you to be my...maid.""Do elaborate, Drilly.""I-I was thinking that if I won, I would..have you. A maid that works for my house and...me.""You give an innocent reply but I hear something more, that isn't what you really want do you?"Marianne hesitates again, "I..really wanted to--""--Aah, I guess we'll save it for later.

So, any ideas what the favor should be guys? Im thinking something simple, like help us train or sth. Dunno tho, seems a bit uninspired. Im not opposed to use it to build a relationship with her either.
>>2899251I was thinking after lots of teasing, just ask her to go on a date.
>>2899251>>2899253Why not ask for history and political lessons on the world?It's something she might know since she's nobility. And if we know what happened before in the past, we might have new potential places of power to look into.And never forget fellow anons, it took one plucky serb to set off WW1 by killing an Archduke.
>>2899258I mean that would be fine too.As long as we don't ask for anything that she's not going to want to do. We don't wanna be "that guy"

>>2899287I think it was that he acted like a main character. Either way, we don’t like slaves. I’m thinking we should improve on Golemancy and shit
>>2899258I could get behind this. Let her think it's going to be something else, tell her to dress comfortably, then have her teach us and our little family history and current politics. She's going to be so confused.
>>2899456Im not hot for poltics, but im not against having some fun at her expense
I want us to make some ridiculously innocent request. Like just asking her if we could go on a date. I understand our character might actually have been a bit of a pervert, and also enjoys the power she gets from making others flustered like this, but does she actually have any genuine romantic experience? How would a genuinr relationship here work?I don't even know.
>>2899049>>2899097>OtherLet's go for meal, must be around 1pm.
>>2899258I support this after having teased for a while. Something completely harmless while also learning a lot of potentially useful information. Also it creates a bit of the world. Right now all we know is that the demon king is threatening everyone, humans are trading slaves and fight the dk, demi-humans as far as i remember have their own kingdom... But we really don't know all too much
>>2899088>>2899097>>2899139>>2899163"For now, I'll save it. I haven't thought of anything yet."Marianne gave rest at me knowing that I have nothing planned for her."Could you release me?" she requested. "Our duel has been settled, right?"I laugh maliciously, putting her short-lived relief to an end. "Yes, I'll let you up but only after you squirm for a bit.""Huh?!"Picking up myself up, I dust the dirt off my skirt while Marianne shook herself. As ever, the hands were steady and won't let go from her to which she called to me."Wait! At least help me up!""I could, I would, but this is much more fun don't you think, Drilly?""What part of watching me like this is fun? Could you dispel these hands?"Again, Marianne tried her best to pick herself up, pushing an arm upwards but coming back down after losing stamina.Cheru came over to me, leaving Fenrir and Yoshka and passing Marianne without a single thought. And, as she always does for some cute reason, grabbed on to my side. She leaned over from behind me when she wanted to talk, but if that's not the case she hides behind me, warming me heart."Are you hurt Mommy?" Cheru said out of concern."Mommy's a-okay, dear. How did I fare?"Cheru shook her head side to side, "Mommy got hit. Cheru's scared."I giggle, exceedingly different from my laugh towards Marianne. "So that's what you're worry about," patting the top of her head, "Don't worry, Mommy's strong. A few body blows won't take me down.""Okay, Mommy."Marianne called me once more, begging for my help."P-Please, Nemo.

>>2900401>>2900416>>2900517I stood over Marianne who was waiting for me to do something. Plastered on the ground; looking down on her as she saw my smile under my mask."I've heard kisses can remove curses," I implied. "Want for round two, Drilly?"Not talking back, her face expressed reconsideration. Then, a shy willingness."Fine," Marianne said, closing her eyes this time. "Just...get it over with."Leaning down as she wished, I took off my mask for a quick second. Face to face, she could feel my breath, preparing for another. I didn't kiss her, just stayed like that as time killed her.Thinking that's enough I put my mask on, releasing Marianne. She was confused; worked up distraughtly as she presented herself willing.I started to leave the training grounds, gathering up my company. Waving a hand behind me I said good-bye to Marianne, "Excited are you? Well, see you later~"She sat there, a hand on her chest to feel her heart. Thoroughly anxious, she reflected on herself."At least a little peck..." Marianne mumbled to herself without my knowledge. She then went red, "W-What am I saying?! It's impure, impure!"----------Leaving the Palad Order's headquarters, me and Cheru was presently wandering the upper district. Yoshka and Fenrir in their usual places.> Find a place to eat.

>>2900528>>2900533>>2900544Looking for that cafe' Marianne took me that one time, I came across its doors with Cheru in hand. It was called "Cradle", as I looked on the polished sign while memorizing where this place was in the area.The door rang with a silver bell, notifying a host to me. I asked for a table of three to which he gladly gave us. As both us took our seat he then told us that a waiter will be here shortly."Fen, take a seat, please," calling for her.Fenrir's head peeked out from under the table. "Why, master?""Just so things feel complete. Nothing more to ask if I have two daughters with me," I sweetly said. "Come, Fen."She just shrugged, crawling out of the table's shade. Fenrir didn't calculate the height of the woodwork, and with an audible bang she bumped the top of her head.. Eyes fled to our direction; a bunny demi-human and a woman wearing a mask. The people here in the cafe' soon turn face, ignoring us until further disturbance. Or maybe the hope that we'll leave faster. Their faces held a myriad of emotions, some of disgust while others chuckled at the foolish commoner. Either way, we stuck out as a sore thumb.Fenrir made it into her seat at the same time the waiter came to the table. She took a gander at the bunny and wolf before remembering to do her job, taking our orders."Welcome, what would you like?" the female waiter greeted, a few seconds late.I stared at the menu, browsing the choices. The portions are pretty huge when looking at the other tables so sharing it will offer enough for the four-ish of us.> "Cake. Chocolate cake."> "The honey glazed ham sandwiches."> "The Upian fish salad.">>2900591The world isn't that downhill yet.

Your order will come shortly," the waiter said before leaving us, going to the kitchen.During the wait we had each other's company. Cheru, who showed no emotion, looked around herself. Observing the clean linens and the luxury decorations. Fenrir however seemed offset at the moment, her nose twinging along with a twitch of her ear."Is something the matter, sister?" Yoshka asked her. "You seem wrong. You weren't like this a short second ago.""I smell an elf," she says with a silent anger. "Not here but somewhere close by.""Oh yes, you hate elves right? You told me that when we first met.""If I wasn't stupider I would've chased to their territory or kingdom whatever for vengeance. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth that meat can't take away, master."Yoshka elongated himself closer to Fenrir until his coils was only twice around my horn. "What is an elf doing here anyway. Could you tell us where he or she is?""Mommy," Cheru said, grabbing my attention. "What's an elf?"> "Arrogant pretties with a complex towards anyone else who isn't them."> "I don't know myself.

>>2900694>>2900729"I don't know, dear. Your sister is much more knowledgeable about them. What I do know is that they have pointy ears."Cheru turns to Fenrir who's still in a heated state, "What's an elf?""An elf looks like a human," Fenrir pointed, showing the people in the cafe' as an example. "Unlike humans though, they're a bit more slim. And as master said, they have pointed ears. Their appearances aren't the important part, sister. It's the arrogant expression they carry around with them."I look out the window, spectating the passersby. "Speaking of elves, do you know where they are? Like Yoksha said."Yoksha recoiled, "Yeah, still wondering, sister.""Hold on, I can smell the elf but not know where it is. I just know that it's somewhere near.">Roll 1d100

This place reflected its populace: the wealthy, the powerful, and ones of good connections. As noble as it was, it was full of color. A color that drowns out the grey from Earth.The thought was ruined as I saw an elf walking along, long and slender as Fenrir described, the iconic pointed ears poking through her hair. She was well-dressed in a green garment and skirt that complimented her blonde hair.Next to her was a person I didn't expect. Reigniting like a random forest fire, hostility grew towards the person.

>>2900838Supporting>>2900861I don't know why but I get the feeling that Yalaboth (can't check because internet is being a shit) from the first thread gave us a step up over the rest of the chosen ones with [Selfish Me] because he figured that she'll make it even more broken and thus give us a efficient way for us to fuck over the rest of the competition.Of course I can be wrong since we have yet to confirm that he has not done the same with the rest. But it's nice to hope.
>>2900861I'm not sure, I mean, we want to help the goddess but we just don't want to do it publicly like these glory seeking assholes are doing.We'll be the knife in the dark type I guess?

>>2900922No, however nothing says that we can't do it at the last possible moment when he's the farthest away from us.
>>2900926https://pastebin.com/5VEHNWdyHe has dangerous sense[Danger Sense]- The user is able to sense an incoming attack, skill, or spell.
>>2900935So I WAS right in the fact that Danger Sense will give us way. Therefore it should be the FIRST thing to steal.
I can't remember, why does Fuuma hate this guy so much?
>>2900889d*mn dude. We really need to get something like danger sense some time soon. That seems useful as fuck given we always roll bad in random encounters. Also, H*CK that dude is better than us in literally everything other than strength. We need to go out and just murder kill sh*t. WE NEED to go to the adventurer's guild and pick up the hardest sh*t we can find. Maybe that goblin cleanse thing we saw earlier and just dump all our points into attributes.
>>2900941Because he was basically a cockwaffle in his past life.
>>2900942Or we could just get more efficient in skills or get a variety of other stuff.Remember we can make magical shit. Imagine us getting an army and supplying it with magical shit we created for it. He can't win against all of them if we hex them to be immune to his shit.
>>2900889>>2900935>>2900938>Steal [Danger Sense]We already gave us away using Appraise, he fucking sensed that.
>>2900946That's definitely a valid plan, but getting exp is a good idea pretty much always.
>>2900942We hate him because he was a lazy unmotivated git. Who apparently really dreamed and wished to be isekai'ed into another world where he has super cool powers and have slaves and shit.The first part of him being lazy and unmotivated doesn't bother me much personally. It's the second bit with being a super fan of isekai crap and having slave magic that gets my goat. Imagine you have the power to force anyone to be your slave through shenanigan powers and he absolutely loves the idea.
>>2900942yeah one other thing, we need, like, to know how to get danger sense too. that seems important. Since we can steal it but I don't think we can keep anything we steal indefinitely, though the pastebin seems to be ambiguous with how it defines the skill since we could technically just steal all his abilities and powers and keep them forever.
>>2900947Well, live and learn. We'll know now and we can brush it off by saying we were curious about so we sent a luck toggle hex on him. Heads, he would trip on his feet. It landed on tails so he didn't.A harmless prank.
>>2900947All I'm hearing from this post is "Cops are already onto us, fucking go loud and steal as much shit as possible.">>2900950There's also the fact that his titles give him away as a wannabe casanova, combine that with the fact that his main god gift is the instant enslave skill and being a lazy jackass pretty much all but confirms that he's the type of person whom left to his own devices will immediately become a sort of degenerative tyrant akin to Caligula when the whole shine and "glory" of being in another world wears off.
>>2900973That shit be scary, don't joke about that.
>>2900973WHAT IS HAPPENING???
>>2900948Think there's a skill for more effective EXP gains? it's a staple of these things.
>>2900988We have one. It's bundle into our divinitas avaritia.
>>2900992>Flucticulus Diana!Oh, thanks for pointing that out.What about creating a training ground that builds golems to attack us in large numbers? Would that be classified as a threat and give us EXP? I want to try it some time.
>>2900966If we can steal skills from him though... doesn't that mean he could enslave us?I think we need to make ourselves a unique hex. Let's call 'contract negotiation', it sort of modifies his power since I doubt we can negate it. He has to negotiate his enslavement power, and if he refuses it nulls and voids his ability on us. He could try again but he has to agree to negotiate and we can refuse it.
>>2900999I like this idea a lot. We really don't wanna be a slave to this guy.
>>2900999nice tripsTalking about hexs, I think we need a magic reflection kind of hex. Spells that are cast against us by users of a lower skill than us are sent back to the user instead or something.

"You didn't do anything bad, dear. I just seen something...undesirable for you, me, and your siblings," I said, hugging her body as she gets enveloped by me.Cheru tilts her head, unaware of Ruiji's skill. God-- or Alia? Whatever. God knows what'll happen if he affected her. I can't risk to break her fragile mind. That leads to the question: what do I do right now? Stay, leave?I look back at the window meticulously, both the elf girl and Ruiji stopped in their tracks.

"It's meet but sweet!"Yoshka takes a sandwich for himself, going on the table. "It's good. Not one for they taste of honey; I rather have blood glazed on the meat.""Whatever you say chef," the wolf girl told Yoshka dubiously.Cheru was delightfully eating the fish salad while in my lap. Her eyes twinklings as she hadn't ate anything this good before since last night.I myself dared not to take one of the sandwiches.

>>2901156For all intent the elf may purposefully enslaved but her thoughts are hers thereby she can freely convince or brainwash or even sway Ryuji or technically the other heroes on the other side.Also don't trust elves.
>>2901119>>2901121>>2901122>77Ruiji inspect the area around himself as does the elf. He then looks at my table through the window. At that moment, time stopped for me. What was he gonna do? Appraise me? I have a hex to counter that. Enter the cafe'? I doubt he'll want to make a commotion.My mind panicked like a certain knight, watching his every move-- his every glance at the window.And then he left, checking behind him now and then as he stared at me, Cheru, and Fenrir.What bothered me was that he payed more attention to Cheru and Fen. Something in the back of my mind that was foreboding."Mommy? Not going to eat?" Cheru voiced, snapping me back into the present."Oh, uh, sorry dear," picking a sandwich from the already barren plate. "I was thinking too hard."As I was gonna take a bite, Cheru held down my hand. "Cheru wants to feed Mommy."I blinked once or twice before a smile melted on me. "Sure, dear," giving the sandwich to her.She held it up with both of her hands, presenting it to me as I take a bite at a time. Finishing it, she hugged me shyly. In response I petted her head, forgetting the anger and worry I have wrought on myself.--------------------Out of the cafe', we went towards the mage's store. This time, Fenrir stayed out for herself; her time within the cafe' grew her comfortable within the environment. There no sign of Ruiji or the elf, putting an end to my internal episode.At the mage's guild, I ringed the receptionist for Wilbur. He came a while after, explaining that his duties got into the way but was happy to see me.We moved from the central lobby and into the hall, entering an office. Each of us took a seat, Wilbur taking the one behind the professional desk."It's good to see you after a time," Wilbur greeted. "May I know why you've rung me? And who are those cute demi-humans of yours? I'm quite piqued."> "My children. Adorable aren't they?"> "I came to tell you that I'm gonna work at Lionheart now."> Other?/Write-inGonna sleep, see you tomorrow. Feel free to talk and whatnot.
>>2901160>> "My children. Adorable aren't they?">> "I came to tell you that I'm gonna work at Lionheart now."
I'll bet the reason he was looking more at Cheru and Fen was because they didn't have the hex that protected them from Appraise and thus was reading as much as he could from them.The game is afoot, the hunters will know of our existence through our family and thus might come after them.>>2901160>"My children. Adorable aren't they?">"I came to tell you that I'm gonna work at Lionheart now."

>>2901160>> "My children. Adorable aren't they?">> "I came to tell you that I'm gonna work at Lionheart now.">> Other?/Write-in>Would you mind teaching me a thing or two about that?
>>2901167I actually foreseen that and I was waiting for the moment to practice magic again the give them that hex, now this might be too late.
>>2901160>>2901170learning to teach is a good idea.
>>2901167Next time we get a chance to practice magic i'm definitely voting to try and create something to prevent or weaken his slave magic.
>>2901174Technically it might not since we can still give them a more modified version of the hex that will hide anything new after the hex was implanted.So that way they don't see anything new any time they try to appraise them.
>>2901174>>2901181I will point out that it would be a extremely good idea for us to give all our family members the ability to essentially emergency teleport away from an area they might be currently in.That way if Cheru or Fen get cornered they can still cheese it.
We should appraise his slave ability, knowing is half the battle. Auto aim? Does it require touch? Can it be resisted? Does it have limits?
On the other hand, i think our best defence against the heroes is being one of the good guys
>>2901241Or being a smiling harmless backstabberget anti appraise and enslave hex, act slaved, then backstab
So our goals in protecting ourself and our family from the others are:1) make hexes to protect against tge slave magic most importantly2) in our free time do some quests to raise our stats and learn new skills. Wouldn't want to be beaten3) if possible learn a spell/make a hex that lets us and our family not only teleport to each other, but also generally out of a fight4) optionally make a hex like the one fuuma already has for ren and cheru, though less effective now that they've probably already been appraised
Is hex a divine ability? I think it is. Im not sure it can defend vs slave thing though
>>2901241>>2901244Either way we should TRY to get along with or avoid them. Judging by our character so far though the getting along part will be... difficult, to say the least
>>2901247>>2901253It's not, but man, what we can learn about this is that we have to max hex, so quest is the only way.
>>2901253Hex is a basic Dark Spell that can be acquired with Level 1 Dark Magic.It's basic limits (more or less) are how many things we can put into a single hex and how strong the caster is.>>2901241>i think our best defense against the heroes is being one of the good guysThat's going to be easy on paper, hard in practice due to their personalities potentially going to go out of whack due to how the Titles work and how their powers may be abused.The real question is not what but who will stop them. Since the Chosen 6 are basically godsent, have easily abusable abilities, but also still have their original personalities (which are basically bottom tier gutter trash for the most part or utterly mundane in that they have weak wills to not abuse their newfound station since they were pretty much randomly grabbed on what was basically a lark). Which will lead into a "Who watches the Watchmen?" situation. Because I'll bet that as this quest goes own, each of the six will start to acquire more and more titles which will fuck with their minds and personalities on a functional and moral level, which can end up making them be worse than the Demon Lord.
Was there ever a stated reason for slavery just being an okay thing to do?
If hex is a just dark spell, i dont believe it will work well against a divine ability.. Maybe if our magic stat is way higher than theirs?I think we should act the good guy, but try to about the heroes - as an outcast we wont get along with them anywayFor starters, i say we need more exp>>2901302Prolly just a cultural thing
Is it meta to try and just be civil to Ruiji, since Fuuma seems to have an innate dislike of him?
>>2901323No, she knew the other heroes from before, she knows what she thinks of them, and she knows they are powerful. It makes a lot if sense to be careful
>>2901302Normally slavery needs a reason to NOT be an okay thing to do.
>>2901323A mature dislike is fine.
>>2901161>>2901167>>2901169>>2901170"My children. Adorable aren't they?" I say with pride."I didn't know you were mother. You look younger than one, hoho!" Wilbur laughed."Anyways, I came to tell you that I'm gonna work at Lionheart."Wilbur's expression changed from jolly to a deep interest. "Hmm? Did you go there yourself?

Working at the academy will give you a stable pay for your family. Two platinum coins after a month." Wilbur then coughed, his age taking affect. "Well, is there anything you want to tell me?

The school is for nobles and wealthy houses so you should expect a little confrontation there; the children don't take lightly to those of a lower class teaching them, even if they're skilled in their own arts. Anything else to know, Nemo?" Wilbur added."I suppose you can tell me about teaching itself. Do I just give a lecture? I'm becoming a magic combat instructor there so I don't think that's plausible.""It depends. Combat as a subject, from what I remember at my time there, was taught through real-time duels, practices, and such between students that was coordinated by the teacher; even at times, the teacher would ask a student to fight him or her. Ultimately, it's your decision on how you make them learn. Does make for a good excuse to put the young'un's behavior into shape too," Wilbur joked.Listening to Wilbur, the feeling was still stuck at the back of my head.

>>2902363While it would be nice, im not sure such a catch all item would either be possible, or repel strong enough spells.. after all, if it worked, why not just make 2 items: one negates magic attacks, and one that negates physical ones..On the other hand, it may be worth a try, i have just assumed it wouldnt be possible since i myself wouldnt allow it as a gm
>>2902323You do have a point, anon, though we must prepare for the worst. Also, the idea of that teleport item is to escape immediately so they don't get where we are.
Too bad you guys didn't transfer the spirit tracking onto another person or thing somehow.They would have been tracking another person for a little without realizing it wasn't us.Or ask Wilbur for help and point out someone trying to spy on a fellow guild member so crassly
>>2902435I thought about Wilbur, but the situations was too unknown for me to take the risk. Also no need to cry over spilled milk, from now on we just have to move faster and dedicate time to research and stuff.

>>2902538He will learn not to cast magic on people willy nilly.
>>2902541>>2902542it's just... has this fucker even done anything besides have slave magic and be lazy?maybe he's chill?
>>2902546Is having slave magic not an immediate red flag?
>>2902559It means be cautious sure, it doesn't mean kill on sight or the like.
Could we form a master, slave contract with ourselves, so he can't make us join one with him as we are already in one with ourself?
>>2902559I mean, logically, he's just like us. Fucked over by Yab, and he chose the "gift" he liked best. Hell, he might not have even gotten a choice. To be fair, theft magic isn't really so heroic either.
>>2902546QM said that he is your typical Isekai MC who has slave magic as his primary arsenal and you already know how many MC in Isekai that has slave magic did anything good? I think not although yes it is very bias because probably 100% of them are in r18+
>>2902560Here's something to think about.Unless that someone has the specific resistance towards that type of magic. Assume that they can be enslaved. Especially royalty.>>2902566We at least can defend our choice as it does not take away free will and you can still make your own choices.
>>2902575There's still the chance that he's a decent enough guy to ask before he uses it?That's probably just my wishful thinking.
It's fine to be prepeared, im all for that, but dont go attacking him just yet, we dont wanna be am enemy of the heroes and kingdom..So let's build what defensive measures we can, and see where it goes from there?

>>2902579It's hard to determine. He was a stereotypical lazy harem protagonist type at our school but still somehow popular without putting that much effort in. Now in this world, he's still the same and has powers that are just super sketchy. In the vast majority isekai plots with similar protagonists and powers, the protagonists are extremely unpleasant or incredibly questionable despite authors and mangakas trying to shill the protag guy as super awesome and does nothing wrong ever. The resulting mess of a story is almost always X-rated and never pg13 in movie terms.As a result, I am inherently wary of someone running around with enslaving powers. And let me tell you, there are a lot of terrible isekai plots in Japanese that have never been translated and I sincerely hope they never see the light of translation because they are the self insert fantasies of young Japanese men who don't realize that there are bucketloads of unfortunate implications in their writings.Also remember, we're not exactly a nice girl or a saint ourselves.We were one of those pushover types who never really pushed themselves out of depression, indolence and lack of confidence. Apparently one wracked with jealousy for more popular and active students because we wanted what they had but was too much of a pussy and coward to just try due to fear of failure or social anxiety.Her terrible personality (and of course, the interpretation and decisions of players such as our selves) is coloring the perception of this guy.

>>2902615Wow, we're going to end up like the Nameless One if we keep up the tattooing/hexing on ourselves bit.

I'm going to go outside and use myself as bait to confront him and the elf. Possibly intentionally wander somewhere so the general populace won't see us if a fight breaks out. Of course, Yoksha and Fen met me with concern, but Cheru was of panic.Cheru latched onto me like she always do with a saddened pout. "Don't go mommy. Cheru doesn't want you to get hurt.

I wonder, how does emancipation work in this world? Right now, Cheru is still in slave status. Does that mean if we bite it, she is rendered as property to be disposed of at the state's pleasure (which might be execution)?
>>2902742>>2902744>>2902748Crouching down, i hugged Cheru calmly, "Cheru... If I don't do this, then more people might get hurt. You as well.

If anything happens I can come back to you with my necklace, just trust your mommy"Cheru looked down on the corresponding lock that hung around her neck, pondering."Please, promise," the bunny said. "Mommy will come back...right?"With a warm voice, I agreed. "I promise, dear. Forever together, like you've said."We hugged for some time, parting as I'm ready to take leave. I checked my status again to see if I'm still being tracked; still there.

>>2902833Good thing too because our name would have outed us the moment someone clapped Appraisal on us.Also, do we need to confront him right now? can't we try to just get the tracking spirit on someone else and let him go on a merry goosechase instead?

Just leave sister to us, master.""Thanks, Fen," I say, starting towards the door. "I'll be back soon. Wait for me, dear.""bye, Mommy," called the bunny girl, meek in speech.--------------------Back outside, I start walking on my lonesome to get some distance from the guild. Chances are that Ruiji will come to me if I go somewhere secluded; I can feel it. I put on the silver ring and hid the ghostly knife under my coat. That's all I have on me, say for shatter and rupture which is braced on me presently. I left my bag with the kids so I it wouldn't get in the way or be damaged.With a plan outlined I start to single myself out, heading into the backstreets of the upper district.

>>2902964>Stay silentStill that chance he can figure who we are by our voice.Empowering connection giving the elf additional stats which means if we break the contract those stats go away. Which means that if we do attack our first move should be to remove that.
>>2902964>>2902967What this guy said.>>2902968Oh boy, fun times ahead on that route.

>>2902964>Empowering Connection (Kita Ruiji)Steal thishahahahahaha
>>2902970Weren't we kind of not well known in our class?
>>2902980We may not have been well known, but it wouldn't be a shock if we were noticed at one point or another.
>>2902981Recognizing someone you didn't know well by voice, through a mask, is pretty unlikely though.
>>2902957That wasn’t an attack to damage, my dog, it was to get us to move so we could be grabbed
>>2902983Of course, my cat, whatever you say.
>>2902968Yeah, but I'm also curious. We know the Demon Lord's army is going through Queen Titania's forest and she's a general. Are the elves under her rule and also working for the Demon Lord? Will things get more shit if we release her? Chances are, it might just be only a small minority, but I don't have a clue.
>>2902986Good point, in that case if a fight does come to pass just stealing empowering connection should be enough, at least until we figure out whether the elf princess is indeed working with the Demon Lord.
>>2902986There's always the possibility that she's allowing him to go through her lands as a way of saying "fuck you and the horse you rode in on" to the people that have enslaved her daughter.
>>2902964> "Nemo.">[Slave of the Collar Hero] [ Second Princess of Sylvanus]Got a feeling this is may be why the elf queen is allied with the demon lord.On a side note, we forgot to appraise Yoshka for spirit tracking
>>2902994I think Yoshka was hidden/small at the time but if we get a chance we should check, yeah. Good catch.
>>2902992We would have to steal it from him cause he has the skill. Plus, it says any target and grows from bond, so it would be great for our family.>>2902993That is also another possibility. Probably has a deal with them to get her daughter back.Also, just checked last thread, yep, Titania is the elf queen and Sylvanus is her kingdom so we have a choice. We can either kill her, or we send her back and get Titania to cut off with the Demon Lord, thus denying them another ally if that's what the deal is.
>>2903003Its that or the elf queen was allied with the demon lord anyways and this is a captive.
>>2903008It's a very pathetic captive, since she's still technically supporting the Demon Lord and shows no real signs of stopping.
I think things are tied? So you anyone here that still hasn't voted needs to do so.

There's barely anything if not nothing that can block the skill."Again, I didn't say anything. Ruiji saw this, through the dense rock that is his head, and gave me a choice."You know, if you don't cooperate then I'll have to put a seal on you.""Master, I think that's a bit too much," Ellina thought. "You can't just make people slaves all willy-nilly.""Well, how else is she gonna talk? I can just command her once I put her under control," says to the elf.

"S-Sorry, Master" "It's okay, Ellina," Ruiji assured. "All I'll say to you about that is that me and Ellina met each other when she was running away.""Running away from where exactly?" I furthered."I won't tell. Maybe I will if I enslave you, but it's your turn to talk.""Tch, anti-scrying artifacts are rare but not that rare.

>>2903148>>2903149>>2903150>69Taking off my mask he revealed my face, staring back at him with the hate I could muster. Ruiji himself was bewildered, his face showing a some emotion for once then just tiredness."Wait, you're that girl form the back of the class! Nagata? Nagamo?""It's Nagaro, dunce," insulting him, smiling sinisterly.Ruji's eyes lit up, destroying his train of thought. "Ellina, push her down to the ground!"On command, the elf chick slammed down to block my evil eye. I break free from her grip, not without getting my head slammed.Pushing her off I then step back. But the time my vision cleared, Ruiji and Ellina disappeared from view.My hex ticked, causing me to dodge a flurry of arrows in reflex that came from above. I snapped my neck towards the general direction only to get a second's glance of the elf's blonde hair going into cover from the roofftops."There was suppose to be six heroes that were summoned, Kotomine told us about that," Ruiji said above.

>>2903175>>2903176Go for it! We have not much time since that guy can sense danger, so let's go for the elf first!!!

>>2903175I'm confused though, he took off our mask and we stared right at him yet didn't get immediately paralyzed.Does our eye take several seconds to being working or something?
>>2903186We don't know that.
>>2903193Won't matter since we're attempting to take everything.
>>2903176>trying to Steal everything >Our eyes can steal one thing from one person last I checked Christ, y’all are asking to get bodied.
>>2903191elf dispelled it I thinkhe could still command verbally
>>2903195No I mean "we" as in "the players." That ability could be part of his divine gift and unable to be stolen. Or worse, stealing that could link us to him somehow.
>>2903199Well if that's the case then our own stealing gift can be more powerful.
>>2903199Don't we have the shackle protecting us?
We need to fall back or at least summon our children. We're not gonna have a good fight like this.
>>2903205Yeah, from slavery. But the name of the buff ability is called Empowering Connection. The wording makes it seem like a soul-link type thing but I'm just guessing. >>2903207I honestly think we shouldn't try to fight him at all. We could lose and become a slave, we could battle to a tie and then have an increasingly powerful enemy to deal with. Or we maybe we kill him but the gods get pissed and punish us for it.
>>2903209M8, no amount of trying to not fight is not changing the fact that the're still chucking shit at us.
>>2903209The nothing to gain everything to lose dilemma huh? I think we should at least convince/do enough to him to make it just not worth the trouble to come after us. That should be our goal here. Still need to fight since he's only been in the interrogate and attacking mood./Plus our character really doesn't like him so she's not going to try to make nice either.
>>2903209Hex of obedience, paralysis poison, stunning noises and flashes, we don't have to kill him to fight and win.
>>2903212Which is why my write-in is asking why he's telling us to join WHILE shooting shit at us.
>>2903214We don't have to like him, we just have to get him to agree to a truce.>>2903215Defeating him non-lethally leaves an enemy, with a grudge against us.
>>2903216It's because he's dumb in that regard and has to rely on his danger sense and slaves to keep his ass out of the fire.>>2903178Eh fuck it I'll support it regardless of my own personal opinion.

Does that sound like someone you can form some sort of mutual truce with?That plus the fact our character isn't going to try very hard to get him to see reason and I don't see us forming a truce with him.He really doesn't seem like he gives a shit about others.>>2903220And now we're auto chasing him because our character hates him so my point is proven to an extent that it doesn't matter what we the players want to reasonably settle things without conflict.

I focused on keeping them in my view to paralyze them but they keep moving and taking cover. Rooftop to rooftop, alleyway to alleyway I chased while they shot at me with spells.I followed them until I was in close view of the palace's wall; another backstreet. They were hiding somewhere but I don't know where."Combustion!""Root Spear!"Out of nowhere, a massive sharpened root came out of the ground at me. I dodged it easily enough but I ran into the combustion blast, throwing me into a wall.I felt Ruiji's spell. Out of all my time here he caused me mortal pain that I could feel.

Think we could make a hex to temper our emotions and promote cold, logical thinking in stressful situations? Might help Fuuma not crack like that anymore.
>>2903296so turn this into an Overlord quest?
>>2903296You know what would also be a neat spell to learn?A spell that acts like ablative armor.So that way it absorbs any attempt at purifying or curses and dispels it. Also literally any post 5 power from OWOD will work too.
>>2903273>>2903274>>2903275>94Groaning, I drag myself to cover while arrows ripped through the air. I was still fast enough to dodge them, enabling me to hide behind a narrow alley. Hastily, I healed myself, then purified to get rid of the tracking on me.The battle isn't in my favor. As I thought that I heard footsteps running down my direction. Grabbing the key necklace around my neck I teleported away, ending the confrontation.I was back at the library, Yoksha and Fen in awe by my sudden appearance. Cheru flew at me, delivering me a rejuvenating glomp."What happened, master!" Yoksha came, still in his human form. "Where did the singes came from?"Fen, joined along, "Dammit elves. Looks like you got into trouble.""I-I'm fine," I said. "It was a bit rough."My attention was taken by Cheru, returning her love as she gave to me. The cold, office air of the library cooled the burns as well as my little bunny girl.I was sleepy. Tired. Felt like I'm going to black out."Mommy, are you okay?" Cheru says upon my drained complexion.> "I'm fine, dear. I just need to...sleep."> Just Sleep> "write-in" then sleep
>>2903302>> "write-in" then sleep"Fen, Yo, I'm about to pass out. Carry me and lead Cheru somewhere safe."
>"write-in" then sleep>If we haven't purifed them of the spirit tracking, do so now. If we already have, then ask Fen and Yok to take both us and Cheru to a safe place.
>>2903302> Appraise Yoshka to see if he got tracking from before
On a entirely different front.I think Dark Magic when upgraded will lead to stronger curses and the like.Which means we can hit people with curses of weakening and curses that affect their EXP gains.
>>2903302>> "write-in" then sleep>Yo, Fen, you take upon us and call for Wilbur, he's the only who can help us now. >Passed out.
>>2903307I checked that myself. We have. It's time to go to sleep.
>>2903305This and open skill panel, we havent update our skill for a while now.
>>2903317We still only have the 5 EXP since we didn't really get any proper training done with Drilly.
>>2903305>ThisOn a different note, this fucker's gonna die by our hand. Even if it takes 50 threads, i want him dead
>>2903318Then guess it's time to lift. We're getting powercreeped pretty bad.
>>2903318>>2903322Agreed. We need a mix of physical and magical skills, and it seems physical skills only develop the old-fashioned way rather than being bought with xp.
>>2903326Something to note is that while a person can attack with two different types of damage their is only one defense stat that covers both. So pure damage against him that focuses on defense isn't the way to go. Taking advantage of his weaker strength and agility to toss him around with our attacks would be best, but given that he's a slave user he'd have people to cover him that way. So estoric means are the way to go, at least until he begins focusing on resistances to things like that.
>>2903329So in short, we better make damn sure that our plans will put him in the grave in one go and fast.

Could you carry me and Cheru somewhere safe, please?""Why?" Yoksha questioned. But at that moment, I blacked out......."Mommy?! Mommy?! Wake up! Wake up!"......As if I was in a cave, the faint plead of Cheru echoed in the blackness. I was sinking, letting my body rest and forgetting everything for the moment. My mind was weary, fading in and out between sleep. It was a comfortable limbo, calling my already closed eyes to fall. Just the darkness, the faint sounds of the outside, and my breathing..."Forever and ever Cheru. I won't forget~ Mommy's just tired.--------------------Side-storyNariko Hanazawa's POVTraining in the private area of the palace, I had a duel against Jakimura. No matter how much I tried to strike, counter-strike, parry, or feint, she would always come back with a maneuver that would put me in a bad position."You've improved, Hanazawa. Faster than last time!" Jakimura complimented.Undeterred, I remain constant in my assault, "Just goes to show how much I'm catching up!""Yeah. At this pace, we'll defeat the demon king! Fight on!"When we were all summoned, my initial thought was to get back home. Kotomine felt that way as well, and up till now she holed herself into the library, researching a way back to Earth. She was more determined that any of us, not getting out of that place unless for food or when we were in needMy outlook on the whole situation changed however when Homura took the reigns and became the leader of our party. The Heroes party. Since then, battle after battle against the demon king's army was a win, and my want to go back home disappeared. Now I'm staying here to fight for Pildadium and humanity. As for going back home, I still want to. But I feel like helping the people here is more important right now; though that may be Homura's influence.Jakimura dodged my sword strike, punting her blade against mine to throw it aside. I tried to move my hand but I wasn't fast enough, tripping myself in the process.She gave a hand to me, pulling me up from the ground. "Good job! Almost got me."I laughed awkwardly, "Next time I'll beat you for sure."Aiko Jakimura was beauty. Even here or at class she would leave the men breathless, getting one confession to another. Nonetheless, she turned them all down, saying 'I'm waiting for the one I truly love'. On paper, it sounds cheesy but she's genuine."Hey, isn't that Ruiji?" Jakimura says while looking at the opposite direction. "Ruiji, Ellina, did something happen?">(Cont.)
>>2903336"Master and I encountered a person who proved difficult. We got into a fight but eventually lost her," spoke Ellina while we came up to them."Did Ruiji do something stupid again?" I said undirectly towards him. "Those eyes must've been ogling at a woman. Must've lost as well.""I guess you can say that," Ruiji said, scratching the back of his head. He then asked us of something that Kotomine told us yesterday. "Kotomine did say that there was suppose to be six heroes here?""That's right," Jakimura confirmed.Ruiji went quiet for a second, unlike him."...Do you know a girl named Nagaro?"Nagoro? Ah, isn't it that girl from the back of the class? Barely remembered her since she rarely spoke. She had long hair, longer than Jakimura's even which was a little disheveled; her appearance was pretty attractive in my book but she would never "use" it you know? Always wore a long skirt and stuff, different from the short skirts most of the girls had.Jakimura thought about it, perplexed, "Nagaro? No, I don't think so.""I know her-- well, remember her. Fuuma Nagaro is her full name," I interjected."Wow, didn't think you would know.""What do you mean by that!" I said angrily."Calm down. Anyway, the person Ellina mentioned that we fought was her. She wore this cloak made out of a bear and a weird mask.""So you mean that the sixth hero was her? No, scratch that, was it even her?" I told Ruiji."There was no doubt about it. i remember her face since her quietness left a lasting impression. Some of our classmates even joked about her being a ghost.""I get why you're telling us but you seem to be thinking of something else," guessed Jakimura."Well, to continue on, it was like she was a different person. Her eyes were full of life - the bad kind I suppose. She even laughed maniacally. And the way she spoke was pretty beguiling too, like she was playing around.""That sounds way too different than Fuuma Nagaro, are you sure it was someone else?" I refuted."It really was her. Ain't lying," Ruiji reassured."If what Ruiji said was true then we need to tell everyone else about it," Jakimura suggested.The rest of us agreed as well, Ellina speaking up, "Master had complication appraising her, like something blocking it.""A power maybe?" I said."Maybe. But we'll need to follow what Jakimura said. Nagaro may be dangerous on her own and might need multiple of us to take her down.""Well what are we waiting for, let's go!" I pushed. "Maybe Kotomine will know more."Side-Story endGonna sleep, feel free to talk and stuff.
Wretched wastes of life.What is there to be said?With that We will need to devlop anti-scrying magic that is NOT hex based. We're relying too much on it like a crutch.
Also, we need to create a memory sphere that will store our memories of the event in the case of needing to convince someone about the Six.
>>2903352I think we should double down and max out dark magic. JOAT build is not going to work when we inevitably go in 1v5 mode.
Events were too much after all. But if we gotta do something is train and not only us, but Yoshka, Fenrir and Cheru (even if is a little).
>>2903357Nothing would not work was because we got assfucked by the dice. Only barely saved by a crit success at the end.So no, you cannot put this on the whole Jack of all Trades thing because of shit rolling.
>>2903358I will agree with this until I drop dead.It's also leading to the question of whether or not we can level them up as well and whether or not they also have their own EXP pools.
Christ, why can't this guy Ruiji sucks.I guess exile is coming up. They're probably going to attack us. If that should happen, we should just run. Maybe kidnap the princess and sever the magic slave connection to let her go free as the last thing we do when we leave.
>>2903395Doubt we would get that far. Fuuma should just leave. Time to gather an army of Demi-Humans. The mark of the Deer Mother will become known soon.
We need to grind exp a lot... I wont feel confident unless we have about 600 magic. And dark magic needs to go up as well.Out if character i think these classmates are decent people. But I dont want our character to think that, i want her to be bitter and angry and spiteful.. I dont neccesarily mean kill them all, but Ruiji i want dead for trying to use force on us. If our counter attack had worked i might have voted to let him off with a scare. Not anymore though
>>2903429Ah then again.. that may have been an emotional response.If i imagine defeating him and standing over his prone form, afraid of death, i dont think I wanna deal the finishing blow.What i really wanna do though, is just establish dominance. As it stands, in my view, he kinda won the power clash, since we got hurt and he didnt. Plus, restraining us was humiliating, we.. fuck that guy.
>>2903446Minus the last "we", editing error
When I woke up I was on the guest room's bed within the Palad headquarters.How long did I sleep? The sun is still out, albeit early in the afternoon if I interpret the sun's position correctly.Beside me was Cheru, sleeping next to me on the bed while holding my arm. Looking at myself, I see that I'm only wearing my skirt and tunic which was thoroughly burnt; the bear cloak was taken off me and placed on a chair next to my magic bag. As for Yoksha and Fen: Yoksha was sitting in a chair, asleep, while Fen slept on Cheru's side.Recounting the fight I had with Ruiji I took notice that I lost my mask, giving me a little fright as I closed my eyes to not affect my kids. I reached into the magic bag by leaning on the bed, getting Olm and tying it on myself as I opened vision again.Cheru tightened herself around my arm, mumbling in her sleep. "mommy, forever and ever. cheru will be a good girl."I petted her, slowly worming my arm out of her grip to put her in a better position, tucking Cheru under the sheets."Forevermore, dear," I whispered into her ear before getting out of bed.The door opened. "Oh, you're awake," said a familiar voice, catching me off guard. It was Marianne; she wasn't wearing her armor but casual clothes - well, casual in noble standards. Marianne came through the door as I got up, myself meeting her.> "Didn't realize you'd be coming, I would've prepared myself then."> "Not in your armor, Drilly? Unless you want some 'fun'."> "Does the sight of a burnt girl excite you~?"> Other?write-in
>>2903557>"hi Marianne" simply greet her and see if there's anything in particular she wants. I dont imagine the encounter left us in a playful moodWonder if she will connect the dots now that she see us wear Olm..
>>2903557>> Other?write-in"Marianne, I need to be honest with you. Yesterday I was attacked and almost enslaved by one of this Kingdom's heros. A Ruiji. At this rate, I fear for my safety in this city and baring me changing my appearance completely, I intend to leave soon."
>>2903557Changing from >>2903577To >>2903578But maybe first ask if there was sth she wanted
So what are you guys' thoughts? Personally im thinking getting stronger and at some point get back at Ruiji in some way. But getting stronger being the most important part for now.Maybe go live in the woods for a while? Or seek down groups that can be legally killed, like orcs or such
>>29036662 choices really.Firstly, we make a clean break, find another base of operations and train up while building up another network. Maybe send a letter to Hanazawa through marianne, explaining the situation.Secondly, is we hex ourselves and our children completely. Different look, different voice and a falsified status screen. This will allow us to live in the den of the beast, allowing us to continue the contacts we've built up here and access to the mage libraries to continue our studies.
>>2903666Maybe we can move to another kingdom/city? I think living amongst demi-humans in their territory would be hard, considering all the slavery. But having somewhere where we can earn money, build connections, get stronger and can generally expand our knowledge would be good. Maybe if we leave, get some books on magic before doing so, so we can study during our travels.
>>2903682I vote for the fake appraisal hex. We can remove our anti-appriaisal hex we have and replace it an illusionary stat screen that they can see.May be make it double layer. One that shows our fake stats which are normal adventurer level A and behind it another fake stat screen with higher stats but our true screen is in the third layer.
Before we leave, Futuna should pray for guidance. We should tell the goddess our situation and that we’re unable to cooperate with people who want us dead at first sight. >>2903682Also, I’m thinking we should do both. Leave and change identities. Become the Deer Mother. Maybe find a few villages of Demi-Humans and gift them some kind of champion’s Mark or something. I’m actually really torn up about the loss of our mask. That’s the first thing we should recreate. Like recreate right now using our divine crafting thing.
>>2903727Fuuma not whatever the fuck autocorrect changed it to. Phoneposting is pain.
>>2903694I agreeIm not sold on the idea of changing appearance or such..>>2903727Yeah i didnt even realize we lost the mask in the scene, but it's kinda sad. Good thing we can make another though
>>2903742The main thing we're losing out is access to the vast mage libraries of the guild and the noble school. Their collection must be pretty extensive and being able to mine their depths will be very valuable in expanding our expertise. Any other location we head to will require some time to reforge the type of contacts we need for such access.
>>2903769True, but given how we have used magic i think we can manage with learning by ourselves. The main thing im conflicted about is if we move far and lose Marianne for s long time..
>>2903777No need to reinvent the wheel if we have it infront of us.Currently theres like 3-4 people who know we're gonna be the noble teacher. We should be able to secure their cooperation to change the teacher from Nemo to our new persona.
>>2903769>>2903777>>2903788Teleportation magic. We can just live somewhere far away, but teleport to classes & the library.
The teleport thing may work, assuming we're not gonna be branded enemy of the state (i dont expect that, but who knows)>>2903788I dont want a new persona tho :/
>>2903812We're not exactly given a choice in the matter since we're going to be hunted by the other six.
>>2903812At least until we have contact with the other heros that we can guarantee that we can slap a restraining order on the bastard.
>>2903820We dont know that though, we only know we had an unpleasant run in with one of the five, which desu he started... But I dont disagree to be prepeared for the worst, in which case i would rather leave the area than change persona.. plus, if it's a manhunt, it seems safer to leave than to attempt to hide
>>2903820Technically using meta knowledge but still. Remaining while them knowing we’re here is a bad idea. We should move into a demi-human village, probably those bear guys, and build up ourselves while hunting shit. Teleporting to the places we need and such. Just make undetectable markers since we know there’s tracker magic now.
>>2903820>>2903878>Using meta knowledgeslightly correctbut our main character (Fumma) can already guess that that degenerate slavemancer told the other heroes about us.
>>2903888True, i dont see a problem in assuming Nemo can figure this out
>>2903878Considering that Fuuma thinks the worst of them and knows that the 6 are all hot shit due to what the gods say. It's not that big of a stretch for her to think that the're functioning like a street gang.
>>2903888sry im actualy on another thread right now so i messed up with my nameAlso could we use the info of slavemancer having the Elf princes as his slave to throw shade at him.
>>2903919Might be tricky depending on how it plays out.If we just rely on the moral outrage of it, it might just simply fizzle out due to slavery being a part of their culture and combined with the fact that the elves are a enemy of this kingdom.Now if you come at it with a logical method and bring up his personality, and combine that with the fact that his power means that he can enslave the royal family and thus overthrow the kingdom through literal mind control, you could possibly get a foot in the door.
>>2903930This makes sense desu. Claiming he may become treasonous and overthrow the kingdom will probably net us something more than just how he is. We can prove this through a display of his personality.
>>2903948His ability to enslave anyone at will would be a major selling point in this case. Adding meta knowledge of him not actively helping the others, we could claim that he may or may not be companions with the demon king. We would need a few nobles to start to toss in accusations before we come into light. Stir the pot with our home girl M and let her network with other nobles.
>>2903960I see your point but I dont think it's a viable road to take
>>2903960Hell, you don't even need the meta knowledge, you can easily bring up the fact that he acts like a bandit when none of the other 6 is around to keep him in line.
>>2903960IM thinking she could wear noble looking clothes like the dress she wore before with the veil. Fuuma’s a magic caster witch would make sense to cover ourselves. They know Fuuma to be modest, here we will not be. Her looking like a mysterious noble would let her integrate into the upper class easier. Fuuma would teach and learn at the mages guild while we live at the village and cast magic spells n shit. Also, she could hex ourselves with something like hex of restfulness that allows her to rest passively when she’s not actively doing something like combat and what not. She could still sleep but it’s not 100% needed with it.
>>2903973May not be something to completely exile him but it would cast doubt on his character from the general public & noble cabals. Playing the political game only lightly to not entirely oust him as villain number two but a danger that, if not contained, will become something terrible. Allowing us to eventually attack him and the rest without the public hating Fuuma.
>>2903973We may not even need to take the road. Merely give Marianne the truth with the full intent that she is a honorbound knight and noble lady who needs to protect the kingdom. If she was willing to find a third way to save Cheru. Then she'll find a way.
>>2903991Which brings into question if we should tell our main girl M that we’re one of the six. May not be needed but I find a certain safety in telling her in a way to legitimize Fuuma’s standing and reasoning.
>>2904008we could tell them that he made his slave cast a tracking spell on us and tried to inslave us when we tried to confront him. (just tell half truth)
>>2904008If need be, I wouldn't be surprised if we had to burn our Nemo ID to such a degree that we can't use it again and thus build up a new fake ID.
>>2904019Also point out the fact that we were willing to talk things out and they still insisted on attacking.
>>2904027oh yea thanks for the reminder
>>2904027Good point. He’s aggressive, compulsive, uncooperative, and powerful. Things that make someone dangerous.
>>2904031>>2904032I mean seriously. The entire event with Rushit doesn't really have to be modified much.It literally wrote itself out hilariously enough to where in any other setting where the chosen ones aren't so loved he'd be buttfucked by the justice system.
>>2904036Of course this can all easily mean nothing if everyone in the kingdom throws in with the other 5 because of retarded reasons.Either way, we will probably need a form of legal witness protection.
Nemo: so yeah that guy is probably a bad person and he uses slave magicAuthority figure: oh yeah we know about that, he's a nice guy though and doesn't abuse his power at allThen what? Also, it isnt unthinkable that can shrug the entire encounter off with sth like "yeah np it wasnt a lethal spell, and I knew she could avoid the attack"I think there's a decent chance that this country's figureheads already view the 5 as allies, and wont do anything against them
>>2904056I figured as much.Which is WHY if they bring that up, we need to bring up the fact that nothing is stopping him from enslaving the royal family and heads of power, even the other 4 that are with him can't be around him 24/7 and when they're away, he's going to abuse it like they've never seen before.On a entirely different thing involving the short story and a spoiler QM posted, Rushit never brought up the fact, word for word that our eyes were capable of Paralyzing to the other four.
>>2904070What if they are cool with it though? Like "Well he is a hero that has proven himself, and he hasnt done anything to diminish our trust in him" or such.. It's entirely possible in my head. I dont really trust this approach
>>2904084then bring up that the elves might have joined the demons cause he enslaved a elf princess (willing or not...)
>>2904084>>2904056networking my guy. It’s all about talking to people who believe us and letting them talk to people who believe them. We build a cabal within the nobles to create distrust with the heroes. We could also claim that Rushit could have the others enslaved as well. How can you know your enemy when your enemy could be your ally? He can literally control minds. It’s an unknowable danger and from what I know, almost everyone we’ve appraised doesn’t have the appraisal skill.
>>2904110I see it, but I just think it can fail too easily and in too many ways..
>>2904084>>2904127Then we drop it politely if they keep insisting that he's a gudboy who dindonuffins, find some privacy to write a letter explaining why we chose to leave the city with the main reason being that the're intentionally harboring someone who will gladly corrupt their kingdom into nothing. Give the letter to the head knight saying the letter is for Marianne, and then fucking leave the city.Because nothing we say at that point won't do a damn thing since they're pretty much committing suicide. And we have to protect our children.
>>2904131We should still leave, just start the nobles on their way to casting doubt on the heroes. Not to mention that there’s supposed to be six heroes, meaning that these five people could just be demon king minions to claim that they’re heroes. There’s several little routes we could choose to push some nobles toward. They, themselves, will push our agenda while we’re away. Give our girl M an untraceable market and place one within the mages guild so we can teleport to and fro from wherever we are.
>>2904131>>2904127Oh yeah I also forgot to put in*main reason being that the're intentionally harboring someone who will gladly corrupt their kingdom into nothing and We don't want our children to be prey to such a being.
It's all well and good to politic away to get rid of the other guy but let's try to look at this at the point of view of those in power.We deliberately hid ourselves and did not reveal ourselves to the nobility and clergy who summoned us. We act in a sketchy manner. Our five heroes didn't resort to such underhanded tactics and in fact announced themselves rather promptly. They don't know very much about us compared to the others.They're going to ask why? Why did we put all that effort into hiding ourselves and avoiding the other heroes? Could it be that we've been corrupted or untrustworthy in some manner by the ritual? Or perhaps we've joined up the Demon King's side, remember we got that map from the orcs. Maybe it was a ruse? And then we lied to the Holy Maiden and to many Knights of the Palad when we got questioned.Also, though this is meta knowledge unfortunately so we'll have to discard when playing in character, Ruiji has gotten the first word in with his comrades and authorities. We appear to be acting in a funny manner and might be corrupted in some manner because our personality is so different from what it used to be.
>>2904416So the best case scenario is literally run to the ends of the world and be an absolute pain to find.
>>2904423Not necessarily, but I want to point out that the authorities have absolutely no reason to believe a word we say given how suspicious we are.We need to abandon this identity. Maybe we can craft another and remain on the downlow. Forge false identification papers and bribe a clerk to get it registered. Get a job as a merchant and set up a caravan to get away for awhile and out of town. Return after a trade trip and start over again. Or if you insist we can remain in the city and try to brazen it out. We don't have to cooperate, we could simply just do nothing. What the fuck are the others going to do about that beyond imprisoning us or if they're dumb enough to try to compel us with force or magic, they'll make us permanently an enemy.I want to help the Goddess Alia, it doesn't mean I want to do it necessarily with them or even in the manner everyone else thinks I should help.
>>2904436I'm of the opinion that we can somehow just talk this through. The others don't seem as stupid as Ruiji so maybe they won't open fire the second they see us. If we explain that we're not evil and we just want to be left alone so that we can help Alia in our own way, maybe they'll let us be.Of course, Fuuma's kind of a lil' shit so for this to work we'd have to have some kind of magic to calm her down.
>>2904416I'm gonna try and make up some example excuses for these questions because they are honestly good, and I'm just passing time till the next session.>Why did we put all that effort into hiding ourselves and avoiding the other heroes?>Could it be that we've been corrupted or untrustworthy in some manner by the ritual?"Because I feared being caught by the Demon Lord's agents and I can not be sure if the other heroes are also corrupted, or even plan on betraying you to him.">Or perhaps we've joined up the Demon King's side, remember we got that map from the orcs. Maybe it was a ruse?"Tell that to the young women that were taken captive and raped. The Demon Lord has NOTHING I want if that is a end result.">And then we lied to the Holy Maiden and to many Knights of the Palad when we got questioned."Beca
