Everything happened so fast. Before all of this, you were Freya Godsblood, princess of Ordamark, and you were the most beautiful women in the land. But your beauty seem like a curse now, as you've caught the eye of the Dark Lord Lazarus Drack who, seeing you, decided to claim you as his wife.

Now, you're his Empress, the Dark Queen Freya Drack, and your reign has just begun.

Last time. After your coronation, you started managing your empire. You did a lot, with the improvement of the non-humans right, the numerous constructions projects, and the increase in the size of the army. You even became friend with the women of the nobility. But not everything was good. There is political problems, as a noble killed all the non-humans males of his lands. There was also an incident with some priests in the non-humans territories. The criminality is also still high, even as the city guard fight the numerous gangs.

With the numerous problems in your Empire, you created the Royal council. Composed of representatives of your subjects, religious men, advisers, and managers, this will facilitate the administration of the empire. You also established a spy network, to work in the shadows.

But you have not remained inactive either. You trained your body and your mind. You trained your rapier skill with Irene and Silviana, your magic with Shelur, where you caught a glimpse of your guardians, And learned about economics and politics. But you also learned something less endearing. Lazarus can't have children, or rather, can't with a normal woman, not without hurting her, breaking her body, and corrupting her soul, due to his exceptional lineage. You promised him you'll find a way, so you'll both be able to start a family.

Then he left, to fight a warband wreaking havoc in the east. He should be back for the year-end celebration. You admit that your bed feel cold and lonely without him.

After you fell asleep, you entered the realm of dreams. You entered the Temple, and you saw something incredible.
There is a small camfire. Around it, a snake-like creature of darkness, a white wolf, and a deer, are relaxing of the ground, enjoying the warmth of the fire. The deer lift his head and see you.

>"Oh ! Freya, it's been a while. Come, approach, join us, this is your mind after all."

You smile, and you walk toward the fire. If the wolf is your ancestral power, and the Shadow-thing your darkness, then the Campfire is your Light power. But compared to the Wolf and the Darkness, It's is very small.

As you sit down, the Wolf and the Darkness get up, and come to you. The wolf snuggle against you like an oversized puppy, and the Darkness wraps itself gnetly around you and rest his head on your shoulder. The deer look at you three, and chuckle.

>"My, isn't that cute ! They must be lonely, after all it's been a while since you used your powers. So, my dear Freya, How do you do ? Being an Empress must be difficult." say the deer.

>" I'm good, thank you. I feel like I'm doing good as a ruler. There is of course some problems, but in the end, I'll find a way. That how I do it." you say.

>"Marvelous ! You are confident, and caring. I'm sure you'll be the best Empress." he tell you

>"Thank you for your words. It's nice to hear that from a god." you say.

>"AHAHA, you're right, it's not everyday a god compliment you. And how are thing with your husband ?" he ask.

>"He's . . . good to me, and he didn't burn villages, or looted a city. And . . . He's kind of a dork." you explain.

>"It's good that he care about you. This mean you don't have to worry about him hurting you." he tell you.

You nod. You spend some time looking at the small fire in front of you. You have so much thing to ask.
>What do you say to the Deer God ?
>>
>>2915331
so the last time we meet you said something about a temple were i need to go to further my magic potential/knowledge can you give me a hint where i can find said temple? Oh and are you still lonely /if he says yes just head pat the deer

and if he says something like no then lets trade head pats against the location of the temple
>>
You look at the deer, and start talking.

>"So . . . I have a question. This is about what you said last time." you say.

>"Yes of course, ask away. I'll do my best to answer." reply the deer.

>"Good. The last time we meet, you said something about a temple, were I need to go to further my knowledge on magic. To unlock that potential. Can you give me a hint on where I can find said temple ?"

>" . . . . You know what ?" say the deer while looking around, as if to see if no one is listening, "I can do better. I'll tell you where is the temple."

>"What !?! Oh . . . . Okay, so where it is ?" you ask, incredulous.

>"Now do be so optimistic. it's one thing to know where it is, but it's another to reach it. The temple you seek is in the Temple District of Lynn, the capital of the Hagëndorff empire." say the deer.

You say nothing. It's a two months and a half journey from Drack's Keep to Lynn. And that without the tensions around the borders. You'll need to travel incognito if you want to avoid potential problems . . . . Or maybe you couls actually make it an official visit. You could go to Lynn to meet Hagëndorff the Great. And go make a small detour by the Temple District. You'll need to think about it.

>"Thank you. Now I know where I need to go, even if this make things a little more complicated." you say.

>"I told you, this won't be easy. Or maybe it could be easy, I know you'll find something. You're really resourceful." chuckle the deer.

You laugh too, and you look at the white animal sitting in front of you, Then at the Big Wolf snuggled against you, and the Darkness gently wrapped around you.

>"Do you still feel Lonely ?" you ask.

>"I beg your pardon ?" he reply

>"Are you still lonely here ? You have my two powers with you, and my Light to warm you. Are still lonely ?" you say.

>"Well, not exactly lonely. I admit I enjoy the company, but . . . It's not like I can have interesting conversations." he explain.

>"Don't worry, I'm still here. I know I didn't visit you a lot. But I think about you." you tell him.

You slowly get up, and walk to the deer, and you gently pat his head, with a kind smile.

>"There, there."

The deer rise up quickly, and you see him slowly tranform into a monster worthy of your worse nightmares.

>"DO NOT PATRONIZE ME CHILD ! I AM A BEING FAR BEYOND YOUR COMPREHENSION ! I WAS HERE LONG BEFORE YOUR KIND CRAWLED OUT THE MUD ! I WAS HERE BEFORE THE ELVES EVEN DARED TO GO OUT OF THEIR FORESTS ! I WAS HERE BEFORE THE PRIMORDIAL DRAGONS DREAMED ! I . . . ."

>"Yeah yeah I get it, you're old. But this doesn't mean you won't feel sad by being alone. I'm here because I want to. Now keep quiet, and let me give you my friendship." you tell him.

>" . . . . . ."

The deer/thing say nothing, then sit down. He keep his monstruous appearance but stay calm.

>"I'll allow it. You may proceed to pat my head." he say, with pride in his voice.

You stiffle a laugh, and go back to petting him. After some time the Wolf come to your side, and whine. You understand and pat his head too. The darkness look at the two beast, then you.

>"Sorry, but I only have two hands." you say.

The Darkness hiss, then rub itself affectionately against your neck. You stay like that for some time. You have read a fairy tale like this before. But the princes had animals not monstrous beasts. Still, this is nice.

What do you say now ?

You keep patting the deer head, and ou take this opportunity to ask him several questions.

>"When you were angry, you talked about Primordial Dragons. What are they exactly ?" you ask.

>"For you to understand, I need to go back long before the various races roamed the world. After the Light and the Dark agreed to create the world, and after me and the Gods of this world were born, the Primordial Dragons appeared, they were gigantic, and highly intelligent and powerful. They were on par with us gods of the world, some even fought with us, and killed some Old Gods. But usually they kept to themselves. No one know how they came to be, it is say the are a physical manifestation of the universe, or raw magical power, from a time when magic was like air. It is said that the most powerful could make their dreams a reality, and that they created some of the races of this world." he explain.

>"And what happened to them ? Where are they ? I know about dragons, but not those Primordial ones." you say.

>"Even the Light don't know. Maybe they are asleep, dreaming in the bowel of the world, or they moved to another plane of existence, as the magic became less physical. Or killed by the Light and Darkness in some old cataclysmic war. The actual dragon are their descendants, even if they are a LOT smaller and LESS powerful than their ancestors ." he tell you.

>" But . . . A normal dragon can be as big as a castle, and destroy an army alone." you say, trying to grasp the size of these ancestral creatures.

>"As I said, A LOT SMALLER." finish the deer.

You find this hard to believe. If they are hiding, how can they hide if they are this big, and if they are dead, you wonder what kind of thing could kill them. You try tochange the topic.

>"You told me about other old Gods, so this mean there are other like you ?"

>Yes, you saw them the first time you were here. All the animals you saw were Gods. You didn't really kill them, and they don't hate you for what you did, as it was a test."

>"But they aren't here ? They don't want to see me ?" you ask.

>"It's more they don't really care. I'm here because you caught my attention, and SOMEONE " he shout while looking at the sky, "wanted me to look out for you. They don't care about the fate of the races, because as long as there is a world where Wind blows, Water flows, and Fire rages, the Gods will still be here."

So, unlike the Light and Darkness, who fight for supremacy, The Gods of the world don't care for either side. But it look like the deer was asked to be with you, at least at the start.

>"Well, about the Primordial Dragons. If they happen to be asleep, could I be able to wake them up ? Maybe even work with them ?" you ask.

>"As I told, I don't know if they are asleep, or dead, or gone. And even if you find one, and he's sleeping, you won't be able to wake him up like a human wake up. And even IF you manage to wake a Primordial Dragon, IF it's asleep, why would it want to work with you ? It's an ancient being as powerful as a god, Why would it listen to you ?" explain the deer.

>"I see, I understand . . . But then what about the Light. You say THE light. Are the light and the dark beings? Have they grown weaker over time or stronger ?" you inquire.

>"Of course they are beings, just as much as i'm a being. The Light and the Darkness fought since the beginning, no side taking the advantage over the others. Your people say the Light, or GOD, you know the old bearded man in the sky ? Then you have Lucifer, in hell. They are THE LIGHT and THE DARKNESS." he say.

>"So that mean I could meet them, in the same way as I do it with you ?" you add.

>"No. They are too powerful to even CARE about you. You are just one among billions for them." he tell you.

>"Oh . . . That's . . . not really nice of them." you say.

>"They have been fighting for dominance for hundreds of thousands of millennia. They won't stop just for you my dear, as exceptional as your are." he explain, with some sadness in his voice.

>"I see. But to fight they use soldiers. Like angels and demons. What type of beings are they exactly ?" you ask him.

>"They are from another plane of existence, Heaven and Hell if you prefer. It's rare to see actual angels in this world, Usually the Light bestow it's power through incredible individuals, like Hagëndorff, or a High priestess."

>"Like the mother of Lazarus . . ." you say.

>"So you know. Yes she wasn't a real angel, but close. and unlike true angel, she died in this world."

>"What about demons ?"

>"If I had to make a comparison, I would say the angels are a regiment of shock troops, the demons are a full blown army, with a lot of less powerful, and only so much powerful ones. And Lucifer have an advantage, because demons can be summoned, unlike angels. They are all under Lucifer order, even if they are under contract in this world. Be wary of all demons. And angels too, they are not a diplomatic bunch." he explain.

You think about what the deer just told you, and a question come to your mind.

>"How can I demon and an High priestess of the Light have a child ?" you ask.

>" . . . Well you see there is the bird and the bee, then . . ." he start.

>"I KNOW ABOUT THAT THANK YOU. What I mean is . . ." you shout.

>"You want to know if you'll be able to have Lazarus children one day." he tell you

>". . . . . Yes." you reply sheepishly, as you lower your head.

>" . . . You need to be as powerful as him. Not only you need to have an exceptional body, but you need to have a powerful soul too."

>"Strengthening my soul ? How can I do that ?"

>"You could increade your corrpution. After all if you are already corrupted, he can't harm you. This would be YOUR corruption, not his being dumped into you."

>"Thank, but no thank, I don't really want this."

>"Then you need to get powerful, get as much power as you can."

>"I knew that already, Lazarus told me."

>"Did he tell you about the other girls ? his harem ?"

>"Yes, he closed it down."

>"What do you think happened to all the girls he "experimented on ?"

>" . . . . I don't . . . "

>"Look for them, they could help you in you research. Go into the depth of the castle, and look for a red door. Don't hate your husband for this, he had no other choices."

>"What do you mean ?"

>"You need to wake up, someone want to see you. This look important."

You don't have time to say anything, you wake up in your bedroom, the sun is starting to rise outside. And someone knock on the door.

>"My Queen, it's me, Ruriska. I'm back, I need to give you my report."

What do you say ?

>"Come in Ruriska, you can tell me here." you tell her.

>"Yes my Queen, I'm coming in." she say.

She open the door of your bedroom, and see you still in bed.

>"I'm sorry did I wake you up ? I can wait if . . . "

>"No Ruriska, it's okay, I was awake. I suppose you trip was interesting ?" you ask.

>"Quite dull actually." she tell you.

>"Aw, don't worry, when this is over, You'll go on your date with Dillon. You know, he missed you."

>"wh . . .What ? Really ?" she ask. she look . . . happy ?

>"Yes. I'm sure he planned a nice date for you. I can see it from here, first a walk in a park, then a nice meal, in a romantic restaurant. During the meal he take your hand. The you walk together, Holding han . . . ."

>"I . . . I get it . . . Please, my queen, stop." she beg.

She blush heavily. You can't believe it.

>"I'm sorry, I didn't want to fill your head with such impure thoughts. Now take a seat, so you can start telling me about you find during your investigations."

>"Yes . . . Thank you, my Queen."

She go sit on a chair, and you get up from your bed. It's quite chilly, as you are only in your red silk nighties. You go to your wardrobe, take a fur coat, and put it on. Then you walk to Ruriska and take a seat in front of her.

>"So what did you find ?" you ask.

>"The noble isn't as innocent as he claim."

>"That I could have guessed.

>"Exactly. I 'interrogated' some guards, and it look like they attackedthe non-humans after you established your law. And they truly killed all the males, only young boys remain. I then talked to some gnoll 'servants', they didn't attack the lord belongings for years, as they managed to find a good spot in the forest, far from the humans. Same for the Kobold, they were just in the mountain, then one day, the soldier attacked. Of course they killed the males too. This wasn't for retaliation, the noble ordered the attacks to gain easy manpower, using the loophole. Then 'Interrogated' an engineer. The fortification aren't enough to defeat an attack from Hagëndorff, but just enough to repel a smaller army . . . You understand what this mean I think."

>"Yes, thank you, Ruriska. . . . So, this is a revolt then." you say with a dark face.

>"Not a full blown one, but if we don't do anything, this could give ideas to some people." reply the dark elf.

>"Good thing he's still here in the castle then. It look like he wasn't so eager to follow my rules after all."

>"You changed a lot of thing, this was bound to annoy some powerful people. I'm surprised it took so long actually. I expected Riots as soon as you created this law."

>"Maybe the fact the people love me, and were hungry at the time, stopped rebelious thoughts ?"

>"For the people yes, can't say the same about the nobles. So how do you wish to proceed ?"

How do you deal with the Silent Old Noble ?

>"We'll have a public trial, then we'll execute him, in public too. I want to make an example of him. Go arrest him, he must be still asleep in his bedroom. I'll send some town crier make a public announcement, then I'll judge him in front of the castle, in the afternoon. In the meantime, a basic scaffold will be put in the square in front of the castle, we'll execute him here." you tell her.

>"Your wish are my orders, my Queen. It shall be done." say Ruriska.

She salute you, and exit the room. When she's gone, you get up, and you go relaxe in your bed. Look like you'll have to execute another person. You hope you won't have to do it everytime. After some time, someone else knock at the door. It's Silviana.

>"My Queen, I'm here to help you and take care of your room, can I come in ?" she ask.

>"Yes, come in Silvie." you reply.

The door open, and Silviana enter, with other maids. They start leaning your room, and Silviana help you get dressed. Then you both exit the room, and you go for breakfast. You eat your bread with honey, and sip your tea in peace, then you go to sit on your throne. Ruriska is already waiting for you, and she have the noble, chained and surrounded by four guards. When the noble see you he start screaming.

>"WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THIS ? IS THIS A JOKE MY QUEEN ? THE GENERAL CAME TO MY ROOM AND CHAINED ME LIKE A COMMON THIEF !"

>"Oh but i'm sure you know, my lord. You are here because you broke the law. General Ruriska told me about what she found in your lands, and what you did. Don't try to deny it, we have all the evidences and testimony to condemn you." you say.

>"This . . . THIS IS AN OUTRAGE ! AN INSULT TO MY NAME ! I'M A LORD ! I AM . . . ."

>"You are NOT above the Imperial Laws. And I know how your fortifications could be used for . . . . This is treason, my lord. You'll have a fair trial this afternoon. We will decide your fate during this trial."

>"Nooooo ! My Queen I beg you, I did it for the realm, I didn't want us to be . . . ." shout the noble, he know what the sentence for treason is.

>"I heard enough. Guard ! Take this man out of my sight, and lock him up in a cell. He's no longer a noble but a criminal, and a traitro to the crown."

>"Yes you highness." say the guards.

They take the struggling noble by the armpit, as he still beg for your forgiveness. his trial will be short. Now the question is, How to you execute him?

You think about how you dealt with Brunhild, maybe you need to do something similar.

>"Ruriska, I have just found how to punish this fool." you tell her.

>"Of course, your highness. What can I do ?" she ask.

>"Prepares a pyre." you reply.

>"Yes my queen, it shall be done." she smile.

She leave, and you sigh. You spend the rest of the morning managing your empire, listening to advisors, and chosing how to deal with soem issues. Then after a quick meal, it's time to start.

You go out of the castle, followed by Silviana, Irene, Shelur and Dillon. In front a the castle, a large crowd is gathered. On the scaffold, the noble, with guards and Ruriska. And a pyre. As you sit down on a smaller throne, here just for you, you raise your hand, and the crownd go silent. you start talking.

>"Lord Dallow, you are accused of mass murder, deceit and treason, how do you plead ?"

>"Not guilty, my queen." he reply, confident.

>"Then how do you explain the fact that you attacked tribes of non-humans, despite no hostile actions on their parts ? Or the fact you killed all the males, leaving only women and children ? Maybe you can also explain the facts that you used them as servants, to build fortifications. Fortifications that won't be enough to stop a big army, but enough to counter a small fighting forces, like a punitive force, send by the authority perhaps ?" you declare.

The people in the crowd start talking between themselves, a noble tried to go against the Emperor powers, and the Empress wishes. The noble start to get angry.

>"All I did was to further the glory of the North ! Our ancestors fought those beasts for centuries, that how we got our lands, with sweat and blood. You are a fool to think they won't backstab you. I took measure to be sure they won't try. I ruled my lands for longer than you were alive. I'm right, and all your laws won't change that." he shout

>"So you confess your crimes ?"

>"I'm guilty of no crimes !" he shout again.

>"You commited crime against the people of the empire, against the crown. In the light of the evidences presented to me, and your words, I declare you guilty. I sentence you to death by fire."

>"WHAT ? YOU CAN'T . . . ." he scream.

He doesn't finish as guards take him to the pyre, and attach him to the pole. The noble keep screaming about injustice, and how your going to destroy the North. Then you get up from your throne and you slowly walk up to the pyre. When you're in front of it, the guards pour oil on the wood, and Ruriska give you a torch. You look at the noble in the eyes.

>"May the Gods have mercy on your soul, because I'll have none." yuo say, with a dark face.

You approach, and you set fire to the wood, soon flames appears around the noble, and he start to scream as the fire devour him. You remember this smell. What do you do ?

>It is done, you can leave.
>Wait until he die, then leave.
>Stay until the end.

You watch the noble, as the fire start to burn his clothes start to burn. You watch as his skin is turning red and horrible blisters appear on his face. He scream in agony as the fire destroy his body, a thick smoke rise. You look at the noble, and he see you. You don't know if he can understand, or if the pain turned him mad, but you look at him with a dark face, full of anger. This is what happen when you dare challenging your power. His skin begins to melt , his flesh turn to charcoal, and he keep screaming. Un fortunately, he lose consciousness, the pain was to much, and the smoke didn't help. Still, you stay in front of the fire, the flames casting menacing shadows on your face. After A long time, all that's left is a blackened skeleton, with some burned flesh.

+1 corruption

You turn to Ruriska, and she nod. She tell the guards to start cleaning this mess. And you look at the crowd.

>"This man was a criminal ! He killed subjects of the Empire, and conspired against the crow. This is the punishement for treason. I except nothing more than loyalty. And he betrayed the empire, he betrayed you ! You are the Empire, if someone betray the Empire, he betray all of you. I promise you, if someone want to bring down our empire, I'll do everything to punish him. You'll never have to fear the traitors."

The crowd applaud and cheers, they approve of your actions. You then go back to the castle. It's late afternoon, What do you do now ?

You decide to go take a bath, and relax with your friends. You send some sevants to get Silviana, Irene and Shelur. Ruriska tell you she's going back to her room, then will join you. You go back to your bedroom, and you wait. Then you get an idea. With the death of her fiancé, the noble girl, Illnir, could use some good news, so you also send a servants to get her.

Soon, someone knock at the door, yo tell them to enter, and everyone is here, So you don't waitany longer, and the six of you go in the bathroom. After undressing, you go into the hot bath with everyone, and you enjoy the moment.

>"This is incredible, I never saw a bathroom like that, I could spend all my day in here." say Illnir.

She's relaxing in the hot water, her body fully immersed in the water. She have a nice and lithe body.

>"I know what you mean." you say, "So . . . Now that the problem with your . . . well, EX-fiancé has been dealt with, I think we need to talk about your future."

>"So you saw that I was right, I told you he didn't support you, or your ideas. I'll be a better ruler than he ever was. I don't want to betray you, I just want to be able to do what I want."

>"I understand. You told me about your desire to be ruler of Asoevia."

>"Yes I explained everything, You make me ruler of Asoevia, and give me a seat in the Royal Council. And I swear eternal loyalty to you . . . . Well, I'm already Loyal but think about it my queen ! You gain a powerful vassal, I will follow any of your wishes. And I still get what I want. You'll get a lot out of this deal."

As you start to think Iren start to speak.

>"I think this is a good idea. Lady Illnir know what she's doing, she planned this after all, so she'll be good at governing, or at least dealing with politics."

>"I think the same, " add Ruriska, " She know a thing or two about ruling, she a noble daughter after all, and she showed the Empress she's willing to do a lot for the empire."

>"I don't like this," say Shelur, "Evenif he was asshole, she betrayed her fiancé, so she could betray you queen. I don't know, I think it's better to stab them in the face rather than the back."

So you have it. What do you say to the noble girl, Illnir ?
>I accept, you get the throne of Asoevia, and the seat.
>You get the seat, but not the throne.
>You get the throne but not the seat.
>I refuse, you get nothing.
>Other (write in)
>>
>>2918779
>You will get the throne, but I need to see how you plan to give reparations to the tribes before I decide to give you the seat. I didn’t burn your fiancé to cinders so you could continue his ideas. I would be happy to work with you on something that’s agreeable to both you and the tribes.

i have an idea for the criminals and outlaws in general : make for the worst ones a new type of military service, a frontline light infantry that will always fight first until they die (give them cheap weapon&armors but an harsh training, all of them need to be marked with a ritual magic that bends them to do this).... But for the "better" ones they could serve in mines/public service ..... or be the working force for a farmlands expanding project. (especially near great forests or swamps; the idea is that they could work hard, create new villages and farms, redeem themself and then live there like new settlers)
What you think ?
>>
>>2918913
Putting prisoners to work is not really a unique idea. Probably better to make them work on the fields than the front line. Too easy for them to slip away.
>>
>>2918921
Not even with a ritual to bend their will ?
It could be like a free choice, that or a rapid death.
>>
>>2918938
Seems like more effort than it's worth.
How many prisoners do you think we have that we can make companies of prisoners in any significant measure.
>>
>>2918964
I agree, prisoner soldiers are the first to rout.
>>
>>2918964
Not many .... so we don t gain a lot with this. But there are a lot of criminals so we should find a way to make their numbers decline.

Still what about the other option ? (to make them work for create new farmlands and then settle it )

You think about what everyone just told you, then you take a decision. You look at Illnir in the eyes.

>"You will get the throne, but I need to see how you plan to give reparations to the tribes before I decide to give you the seat. I didn’t burn your fiancé to cinders so you could continue his ideas. I would be happy to work with you on something that’s agreeable to both you and the tribes." you tell her.

>"I'm happy with this, I promise you I'll do everything I can to give reparations to the non-humans, I swear my life on this. You won't regret it my Queen." she say as she bow her head.

>"Good, we'll do all the paperwork and protocol tomorrow. For now . . . I need you to do something for me." you whisper.

>"Hum ? what this my Queen ?" she ask.

You look at Irene and Silviana relaxing and talking together, and you think back to your first bath here. They attacked you with cold water, so now it's time for payback. You explain your plan to Illnir, and she go distract the two girls. You take this opprotunity to go fill two big jar with cold water. You slowly approach the two girls, but as you're about to give them a cold shower, Shelur call you,

>"Freya, please." she shout.

You don't have time to react as she grab you, take you in her arms, and flung you on her shoulder.

>"What the meaning of this ? What are you doing ?" you ask.

>"Oh Freya, you didn't really think you could really get us like that." say Silviana, laughing.

>"Yep, we prepared this before we got here." add Irene.

>"WHAT ? So this was a trap ?" you shout.

>"The truth is I never really was on your side." reply Illnir.

>"This was too good to pass up, sorry Freya." say Shelur, not regretting this at all.

>"Traitor ! So, you got me now, what are you going to do ?"

Shelur slowly walk, she go to the cold bath. You look at the cold water, Then all your "friends" chuckling, then the orc. She give you a big grin. You look at Ruriska, but she doesn't move.

>"I'm just here to laugh." She say with a goofy smile.

So this is your fate. What do you say ?
>You wouldn't dare. (Daring tone)
>Do what you must. But I'll have my vengeance. (Dramatic tone)
>If you do this, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine. (Omnious tone)

You sigh, look at the girls, then Shelur.

>"Alright, I get it. Shelur, you can put me down."

>" . . . Okay." she reply as she get you back on the ground.

You face all the girls and spread your arms.

>"Do what you must." you shout in a overdramatic tone, as if yo were in a play, "But I'll have my vengeance."

>"We'll see. For now you can't run." say Silviana with a grin. "Everyone let's do it !"

They all grab bowls an jars, and fill them with cold water. Then they get closer to you. Four girls getting closer, with predatory smiles and cold water. They are in front of you.

>"NOW !" shout Irene.

They all throw their water at you, but you had a plan. While they were getting colser, you focused on your powers. And now as the water come to you, you freeze it instantly. Because of the sudden cold, they all let go of their containers, and look at you. The water is frozen as it get out in beautiful forms. You smirk at them.

>"See ! I told you. Now get ready, beacuse nothing can stop me, I'LL HAVE MY VENGEANCE MUAHAHAHAHAH." you laugh in an exaggerated manner.

You fill another bowl with cold water, and you get to the girls, as they look at you with fear. Nothing can stop you. NOTHING !

Maybe except Ruriska. You didn't notice but as you were focused on the women in front of you she got behind you. You can't do anything as a waterfall of icy cold water is poured on you. All the girls laugh, and you look at the dark elf with killing intent.

>"I lied." she say ahs she stick out her tongue, trying to look innocent.

This . . . is . . . WAR !

You had a lot of fun. You played with everyone, throwing water everywhere, you even managed to bring Ruriska to your side, after you wanted to explain to everyone she'll have a date with Dillon. She quickly switched sides so you won't say anything. After some time, you go relax in the cushions and matress. You massage each other with scented oils. Illnir took care of you, Irene and Ruriska did it by themselves, but Shelur instited to rub oils on Silviana. Surronded by the sweet scent of incenses, you stay like that for a long time.

But time passes, and you need to get going. You all get out of the bathroom and go get dressed. You invite them all to have dinner with you, and the happily accept. In the dining room, you eat with your friends. The chef outdid himself, serving you chicken, sausages and eels, with a lot of carrots and cabbages. After dinner, your friends say goodbye and leave to do whatever they have to do.

You're now alone in the great hall, pondering what you cand do now ?

You decide to take a walk in the corridors of the castle. You start to move forward and change direction at random. You meet guards and servants, they stop what they are doing and bow to you. You give them a nod and continue your walk. The corridors are clean, and well lit, by numerous candlesticks hanging on the wall. statues of warriors are present in some corridor. You also meet construction teams, and sometimes you have to turn around because redecoration work is underway.

You continue walking, and as you start descending the stairs, you think about what you're told, about the depths of the castle, and a red door. You think you should take a look at this.

You go down, taking every step that lead you down. You think you did for some time, then you find a set of stairs, without light. You take a candlesticks, and go down. It's cold, and dark. You find yourself in a long corridor of stone, without any light. You keep walking forward, and as you're about to turn, you hear some voices, you look, and you see two guards, in engraved heavy armor. They talk between themselves. You take a deep breath and you walk up to them. When they hear you coming, they turn their head in suspicion, but when they see you they salute.

>"My Queen ! . . . . What are you doing here ? With all respect I don't think your supposed to be here." say one of them.

You look behind, them, they are guarding a big door. It's not the red door, but if they are here, that mean you're getting closer.

>"I'm just taking a walk, and I want to go through this door. Open it." you tell them.

>"Your highness, we can't. Emperor's orders, NO ONE go through this door. We are here to make sure no one go in . . . or get out." explain one tof the guards.

>"But he didn't say anything about the Empress." whisper a guard, "are we supposed to listen to her ?"

>"I don't know." reply another.

It look like they are confused about what they should do now that you are here. What do you do ?
>Don't bother, I won't go further.
>Can you tell me what's behing this door.
>If you don't let me, I'll make sure you'll be send on guard duty in the Dark Forest.
>As you Empress, I take full responsabilities. Open this door.

shouldn't it be better to know first before just demanding to go in anyways? Isn't point of getting information to determine whether we want to enter?

>"Soldiers, can you tell me what's behind that door ? Surely you must know." you ask them.

The guard look at each other, then look at you, embarrassed.

>"Actually . . . We don't know what's behind this door, your highness. We've been guarding it for two month. Next month it's going to be two others guards. There is ten of us, and every three months, a team of two go here and replaces tow last two. The Dark Lord just told us to never open it to anyone except him. But since the start of the war, he never returned."

>"So you have absolutely no ideas about what you're guarding ?" you ask, "You just stay here for days, making sure nothing go in or out ?"

>"Yes this is what our lord ordered us to do, and this is what we'll do until he say otherwise." say one of the guards.

>"But I admit I heard some strange things coming out of this door." add the other.

>"What do you mean ? Speak up !" you inquire.

>"Like something is walking, something heavy. I hear it coming from the other side of the door, stop for some minutes, then leaving. And I don't hear it for several days. I don't know what this is, and personally, I don't want to know."

>"This is why I don't think this is a good idea for you to go through that door, my Queen. At least not alone."

this is how it is. You are sure the red door must be somewhere behind that door, but if what the guards said is true, there is something else. What do you do ?
>Don't bother, I won't go further.
>If you don't let me, I'll make sure you'll be send on guard duty in the Dark Forest.

You look at the door, Whatever is behind, you don't wan't to deal with it.

>"Don't bother, I won't go further. Thank you for your hard work." you say to the guards.

>"Thank, your highness !" they reply as they salute you.

You go back to the stair, and go to your bedroom. You wonder what's behind the door, defending against potential evil doers who would want to exploit the experimented women.

After some time, you manage to find the way back to your bedroom. You go in, and undress, putting on a long black nightdress, before going to bed. You realy need to have a LONG talk with Lazarus. You don't know if it's because he want to protect you, or because he don't trust you, but he still hide a lot of thing.

>>2920732
but anon we sould try to finish the king´s road as soon as possible not for the better trade and not for the better troop movement but to show everbody what humans and demi-humans can do by showing that the road is finished in 2 instead of 3 yearsso all the critics are silents
>>
>>2920770
It says 365 weeks, that's like 7 years
>>
>>2920775
it was meet as an example anon but yes its 7 years
>>
>>2920775
Its not the road will just pop into being after 7 years of dirt trails. We should see passive gains as it finishes in stages.
>>
>>2920847
My point is, we can afford to wait 15-20 weeks until we're it's close to spring and we have more resources. Better to spend when you have excess than just spend all income on it.

You send money, along with priests of the North Gods faith, to help rebuild Thoreric. You hope this will help the population, and maybe gain support for the faith. In the folowing days, the reconstruction is underway. This is helped by the fact that the formers slaves you liberated managed to at least clean up a bit of the city. It will take time, but it look like it's possible for the city to regain its past glory. Strangely, the knights of the Light don't really help, and instead, they requisition resources and locations, to "help the faith".

>-1 finances

You also send more "compassionate priests" into the less aggressive non-human lands first, so they can learn how to convert them more efficiently. This doesn't really work, as the tribes are already wary of them. Fortunately, or maybe not, the non-humans just ignore the priests, as if they don't exist at all. The priests just stand in the middle of the villages, and read scriptures out loud, to a
crowd that doesn't care.

+The priests of the Gods of the North are in the non-human lands, but the population ignore them.

You decide to start the King's Road Project. You think about using some of the prisoners the city guards have arrested, as well as some of the street kids. You offer them some wages if they help move resources and provide assistance, not building roads themselves. You aslo call out to the giants as well, telling them their strength is welcome, and that you're willing to pay them what whatever they wish. They ask for numerous ressources they don't have. You accept gladly and soon they start to work. The prisonners are sent to work, under the watchful eyes of the guards, and they do a good job, as a lot of them are in good shape, thank to their life of crimes and fights. The street kids are glad to work, some of them think they'll have a chance to meet the beautiful Empress. You also allocate a lot of ressources in this project
All in all, the projects will be finished faster, but still this is a colossal work.

>King's road : 305 weeks
>-2 ressources

You have a full legion of soldiers, 5000 men, garrisoned near the non-human tribal lands, where lord Dallow butchered the male population, to help keep order, and ensure things transition smoothly,as Lady Illnir take control of Asoevia. You hope she'll find a good way to give reparation to the widows and orphans. You also think about how this culd lead to better cohabitation, and perhaps even marriage between the races. In the following days, it look like it work nicely, as the females like the soldiers, they are warriors after all, and the children look up to them. You think this was a good idead to have a lot of veterans in the legions.

+The gnoll and kobold females really like the soldiers, the children look up to them.

You officially put lady Illnir on the throne of Asoevia, and you also give her a seat in the royal council, you put some conditions though. She'll have to marry someone from within Asoevia, and that when she gets married, she and her husband must form a new dynasty name, so her future children will inherit it. She's overjoyed by this, and she joke with you about the "marriage part" part of the deal, telling you you're not her mom.

You send letters to the various Gnoll and Kobold Tribes, asking them if they would be willing to send some of their unmarried men to help repopulate the devastated tribes. Some accept, other don't, the loss of able men, even if they are unmarried, is not good for a tribe, still you think this is good enough, at least maybe some of the widows will find new love.

You summon the Knights of The Light to the capital to inquire as to what their intentions are. You think they're up to no good. But you can't just send troops to forcefully bring them here. They send a reply, telling you they have an holy mission, and can't come to meet you. They also say you should pray to the Light more, and maybe you could see the way.

You decide to go out, and visit the troops. You go to a maneuver field outside the city, where large scale training take palce. You walk among the soldiers, they are happy to see their Empress, seeing taht you take time to meet them raise morale. You talk to them, about their feeling. They like the fact that your cleaning the empire of "filth" like corrupt noble, and bandits. They also enjoy the time of peace, eve if they know it won't last. Still they are ready to die for you, and the Emperor. You thank them for they dedication. But there is complaints as well. The soldiers would love to have a place to "have fun". With the danger in the streets, and their dwelling numbers, some of the men regret the "girls". Also the fact that they don't have war beasts. Look like the men of your army are a bunch of dork, like someone you know. The soldiers seem to like you enough to share stories, and rumors. They accept the non-humans enough, even if they don't think they ever be able to be like human. Still they think they are good warriors, and would love to see them on a battlefield.

One night, as you're about to go back to your bedroom, you feel lonely. You could use someone to keep you company. You think about Silviana. You remember how you something slept in the same bed before. You're both older, but you think she won't refuse. You go get her in her room. She was about to go to bed.

>"Freya ? What can I do for you ?"

>"Silvie, I feel lonely. I need someone to . . . keep me company. I can't bear to stay alone in my room all night."

>"Do you miss your husband ?" she chuckle.

>"A little, I got used to his presence every nights. Do you remember when we were little, when we slept together . . . Can we do it again ? Just like old time." you ask her.

>"Alright, no problem." she reply with a smile.

>" . . .You accepted easily." you inquire.

>"I can't leave you like that. Beside I too, remember when we were together. It could be nice." she smile.

By the Gods, she's too cute. She put on a fur coat, and you go to your bedroom. But then you think. Your bed is really big. And you think about Shelur, in her simple room. Maybe she'll like a change, and she like Silviana too, so you think this won't be a problem. You explain this to Silviana, and she accept. You both go to Shelur room, you knock and enter. Her room is really simple, with a bed, a wardrobe, and a basin to clean up. She also have a rough wood chest and several weapons on the walls, and she also have a spot with numerous vials and bottles. She see you two.

>"Freya, Silvie, what can I do for you ?" She ask. She can now speak clearly and no longer make mistakes, except when she's angry. She also call Silviana by her nickname.

>"Shelur, do you want to come with us, and spend the night together ? I feel lonely, and with Silviana, I figured you could enjoy it too."

The orc think, then nod.

>"Alright, this look good, I'll clean myself, then we can go." she reply.

She get up and go to her basin. After some minutes she's all clean, and she follow you. The three of you go to your bedroom. You tell the girls to just change into something comfortable, Shelur pick a black night dress, but it's almost too small for her and give her an impressive cleveage. You put on a white silk nighties, and Silviana put on a cute crimson nighties. The three of you talk a little more, then you go to bed. Shelur on the left, Silviana in the middle, and you on the right. Silviana blush a little.

>"This . . . this is a little . . ." she try to say.

>"It's nice." say Shelur, as she get comfortable, "feel nice, better than being alone."

>"See, I told you. Now you can understand how I felt, all alone." you tell them.

>"Don't you think your husband is going to say something ? You didn't tell him you were going to sleep with your servants." ask Silviana.

What do you say ?
>I'm sure he won't mind. Now . . . (cuddle)

>"I'm sure he won't mind. Now . . . IT'S TIME FOR CUDDLES !!!"

You take Silviana in your arms and cuddle up against her, she make a cute yelp as you embrace her with all your body. But then she relax, and she return the hug, smiling.

>"You're right, this is nice." she chuckle in your arms.

>"Hey, I want cuddles too." add Shelur.

She embrace Silviana too. As she's much stronger than you she do it gently. Now poor Silviana is blusing, locked in a hug with you and Shelur. She can't do anything more enjoy it. You laugh together as you stay in a collective embrace in the bed. And after some time, Silviana is the first to fall asleep, breathing peacefully between you too. Then Shelur close her eyes too. You smile at your two friends are huddled together, It's even more cute with the size difference, as Shelur scoop Silviana, one arm around her chest, and the other around her waist, her head resting on the space between the shoulder and the neck. You also got Silvie in a loving hug, both arms on her hips.

You think you need to do this more often. You sure Lazarus won't get angry. You know he trust you. You feel really good, the loneliness you felt earlier disappeared.

Do you do something ?

You decide to enjoy the moment, and you huddle closer to your friend, and you look at their sleeping faces. Silviana is really cute, her beautiful body highlighted by her clothes, and Shelur too, she has this exotic beauty that make her attractive, even sensual. You look at them for some time, enjoying the soothing sound of their calm breath. You can feel the beat of Silviana heart, with her chest against your. You gently pat their head, happy to be blessed with them. Then you too close your eyes, and fall into the peace of sleep.
.
.
.
You wake up in the morning, still entangled in your friends, Shelur still got Silviana in a tight embrace. They wake up some second after you. The three of you help each other to get dressed. You manage to convince Shelur to wear a nice blue dress. Then as maids come in to clean up, you go have breakfast with them. You talk about nothing, telling Shelur about Ordamark, and how beautiful it is. She wants to one day visit your home country, and meet your parents, as she thinks they must be incredible, to have a daughter so exceptional. Then it's time to get back to work. You have an Empire to rule.

You have the priests continue their work among the non-humans, and keep proselytizing among the tribes. You ask them to focus on the individuals who interact the most with the human villages, and try to convert them. This work really well as the non-humans who are in direct contact with humans enjoy talking with the priests with important discussions about the way of life, and the eaching of the holy scriptures. In the following days, the priests are happy to report their first converts. You think you'll need to have a official census of the non-humans and their faiths.

You invest a large amount of money into the Spy Network. With those investments, your spy increase the size of their networks, buying infos, and briding more of their contacts, like an invisible hand.
You also send your best spy to watch the Knights of The Light, to find out whether they're trying to blatantly cause trouble or not.
After some days, you have the first report. There is some clash with the knights and the inhabitants, the former slaves in particular. The knights berate them on the fact that they don't worship the Light, the citizens reply that it wasn't the Knights that helped them when they were in need. There is also tensions with the small non-human population, as they knights try to push them to fight. But this mean a lot of people go for the faith of the Gods of the North.
> -1 finances
>Spy Network : 45 %

You also send teams to look for people who have teaching skills, and if they are willing to teach in the University, so that it will be fully prepared and staffed for the futures students. They find a number of scholars, with skills in chemistry, physics, astronomy, mathematics, geography, and history. There aslo a some accountants eager to work for the crown, they will help in managing the budget of the University, supplies and food, so you won't have to deal with it personally. You ahve your science teaching staff, now you need the Military staff, but you're sure Lazarus could choose himself, if you ask him.


One day you officially call a meeting for all the most important priests of the three religions, to discuss the religions place in the government and the future of The Empire. You send a letter to the Black Moon, telling him he doesn't need to attend himself, you understand have a lot to do, he can send whoever he want instead. He reply that he's happy for your consideration, and that he'll send his Great Inquisitor. One evening, The Cardinal of the Light in the North, the Archpriest Of the Gods of the North, and the Great Inquisitor of the Black Moon are seated on a round table with you. The cardinal wear a pure white and gold vestment, the Archpirest wear a humble druidic robe, and the Great inquisitor wear an iron armor, with a green tabard. Those men are wary of each other, and are waiting for you to talk.
>What do you say to those men ?
>>
>>2923213
That we recognize power behind their faiths and intend to not forbid citizens from following a faith, but that we will exercise and enforce mundane authority within the empire. If a faith requires special consideration in some facet of the law it is up for debate as long as giving such concessions won’t undermine the imperial interest.
That implies, among other things, that sectarian violence will not be allowed or tolerated. Although maybe choose more diplomatic tone to begin with.
>>
>>2923261
>>2923213
Something like this, the churches cannot carry out their own justice at their leisure, Imperial Law must be followed. Also, we should bring up The Light's connection with Hagendorff and their clear political agenda to undermine The Empire. We should say that The Emperor, Lazarus, has not come to destroy the world or anything, but simply to unite The North and stop all the petty wars that keep us weak. And since WE are a northern princess through and through, our concern will always be for the people of The North.

>"My lords, I'm happy to have you today. I wanted to meet you so that together we could agree on the place of faith and the church in the affairs of the empire. I want you to be sure of one thing, I really care about faith, so that's why I have an offer that I think you'll like.
" you say.

The three men seem interested by your words, and listen to you.

>"I, the Empress, Freya Drack, recognize power behind all your faiths and intend to not forbid citizens from following a faith. But we will exercise and enforce mundane authority within the empire. If one of your faith requires special consideration in some facet of the law, it is up for debate, as long as giving such concessions won’t undermine the imperial interest. The three churches cannot carry out their own justice at their leisure, this is how you get civil unrest. Imperial Law must be followed. That implies, among other things, that sectarian violence will not be allowed or tolerated. Although you should have choosen a more diplomatic tone to begin with." you explain.

>"So you think we shouldn't punish heretics ? Do you really think we'll let heretics and demon roam the lands ?" ask the Cardinal of the Light.

>"The definition of what a heretic is really is subject to debate. I know that my husband is considered more than a heretic by your church, by his existence alone. There is also the Light's connection with Hagendorff and the clear political agenda to undermine our Empire. Does this mean you'll try to burn us all ?" you reply with a smile.

>"Well it's true the Emperor Hagëndorff is blessed by the Light, but what he do isn't what the church do. If he did something to you, this isn't because of our church." scoff the Cardinal.

You can see the Great Inquisitor smirking. The Archpriest say nothing. You look at the cardinal.

>" The Emperor Lazarus Drack, my husband, isn't here to destroy the world. His only wish is to unite The North and stop all the petty wars that keep us weak. For too long we have fought each others, kingdoms and lords waging useless wars, causing death and destruction. I won't say the Emperor is kind, but he's pragmatic, he know people won't just listen to him."

The Archpriest nod, he understand what you mean.

>"And in case you forgot, I AM a northern princess through and through, my concern will always be for the people of The North."

>"But what about their souls ? Do you wish to send them to eternal Damnation ?" ask the Cardinal.

>"I won't make this choice for them, they'll be free to choose what is the best way to save their souls."

The three men think about what you said, and they accept your proposition. They'll follow the imperial law, and if they have demands, they'll send it to their men in the council.

One morning, you go into the city, with Silviana and an escort, and you look for new books and Magical Artifacts. After some time, you don't find anything interesting. Then you find a small shop, between two stone buildings. Inside you finds some interesting books. You take those that'll help you learn something.
>"Essay on Logic (intelligence)" : 10 000 gold
>"Advanced Economics (economics)" : 12 000 gold
>"The future of Feudalism (Politics)" : 9 000 gold
>"Ballroom dancing (formal dance)" : 8 500 gold

You don't find anything related to magic, or anything powerful, only basic magic tools, or parchments. Maybe you could send teams, or hire adventurers, to look for artefacts.

You talk with the priests of all the religions, to try to get a better personal understanding of their religions. All the priests are the same, they believe their way is the right way, even if the North Gods priests are more accepting, and there is obvious tensions between the priests of the Light and the Black Moon.
You learn that the Gods on the North ask their followers to simply give thanks for what you get from the world : Love the animals, as the are child of the gods too. Take care of the earth, as it is the mother of all life, Respect the water, as it is the life blood of all that live. And a lots of things lie thats, for basically everything natural.

The Light ask that you whorship it, you have to pay honor and homage to the Light. You also pray to the Light, and you shall be blessed. You also need to fight the darkness, outside and inside. Be good, and you shall go to heaven.

You already know about the Black Moon whorship.

You send letters to the Dwarfs, asking them what would be required to arm a special contingent of soldiers, somewhere around 1000 men, with their high grade crafts. They don't lose time, and you recieve a bill for 1000 Elite troops gears.
>If you let them use their sessources : -2 finances.
>If you give them ressources to work : -1 ressources, -1 finances
It shall be done in 16 weeks.

You write a letter to your family, inviting them to the capital for the end of years celebration, you write that you can't wait to see them again, that you made interesting friends, and that you're doing your best to make them proud. Later that week, you receive a reply, from your parents. They are overjoyed by your invitation, and are already on the way, they think they'll be here the day before the celebration. This make you smile.

You Run again this week, to increase your endurance. This time, you go to the training ground and start running, without stopping you try to do it until you can't do i anymore. In the end, you're drenched in sweat, and you're really thirsty. After some time, you walk back to the castle.

(Next level reached : 4/4 ! Endurance now 5)
You also train your Dexterity, you stretch yourself again, and after a little warm up, you manage to put your foot behind you, and take it in your hand, while standing. You stay in this position for some time, then do the same with the other leg. You are more flexible now.

(Next level reached : 5/5 ! Dexterity now 6)
You train your body to increase your strength. You take your two leather pouch, and you fill, them this time with sand. You estimate each of them to weight around 4 kg. You start with them on the ground, you do a push up then take them and lift them above your head. You do this several times. After all this training, you now feel stronger.

(Next level reached : 3/3 ! Strength now 4)
You continue your training with Shelur, this time outside, in the courtyard. Today Shelur want you to work on maintaining the link as long as you can, So you can get used to the feeling. She told you to not worry about fainting, she here for you. You manifest your two guardians again. This time you try to keep them here as long as you can. When they appear, the wolf howl, and slowly come to your side, the darkness go for Shelur, and smell her, before coming back to you. Thank to your newfound strength and endurance, you're able to stay focused, and manage to keep them here for a whole MINUTE. But then it's too much, you feel weak, and collapse on the ground, breathing heavily. The guardians disappear, and you lose consciousness as Shelur rush to your side.

You wake up in your bed, clean and in a nightie, with Silviana and Shelur sleeping by your side. You think they took care of you, and you are thankful.

You read the last part of the Book of the Light, and try to learn the last spell. This one is called banishment, it's the same power as your Amulet of heaven, it hurt demons and undead, purging them from the world. There is one small problem though, you have no way to test it. You read the words, focus your power, and a Bright light come from your hand, it lasts for some seconds, then disappear. You think you did good, but you can't really try it out. So you just have to try and try again, and hope you're doing it right.
(You've read all chapters of the book, you know three spells. Ray of Light,Healing, Banishment.)
You try to read the book on flexibility again. You look for more advanced positions. The one you see are more advanced, but you think you can manage, now that you've gained more dexterity. You try some of them, twisting your arms and legs. This is more difficult than you first tough, but still, you think you can do it, one step at a time.
This give you an idea. You look for someone able to read, and maybe translate the book for you. You send teams, looking for scholars able to decipher the strange languages, unfortunately, they found nobody with the required knowledge. Still, you ask them to keep looking, maybe one day you'll find someone.
This week, you decide to sleep with Silviana and Shelur, every night until your husband come back. And as you don't want to leave anyone out of this, you ask your other friends if they want to do it. Except maybe Dillon, this could be too much for him. Irene was

Reluctant to sleep in the bed of the dark lord, but you manage to convince her, thank to Silviana secret move, puppy eyes. The four of you change and go to sleep. Irene have trouble sleeping, but after you, Silviana and Shelur cuddle with her, she relaxes. And you all happily fall asleep.

Dude, once we make official Brothels, then it legalizes all the degeneracy, allowing gangs to take them over and press women into institutionalized sex slavery basically.
>>
>>2924206
a pleasure house ? no, we could milk some good money from the nobles and a lot of soldiers will be happy.... but the noblewomans we are befriending could start to not like us anymore (not all of the, but some for sure).

plus our objective was avoiding things like this to manifest.

what about an inn or a an hospital ?
>>
>>2924266
Well we could try to enable a system in the brothel to report it should they be getting forced. Plus i'm pretty sure prostitute is legal.
>>2924271
The men did complain about little to enjoy themselves. A pleasure house seems logical given there will always be whores, at least we can make money off them and have them spy on clients.
>>
>>2924286
If prostitution is legal, why is it considered a problem? It's prob in a middle area where the government and religion knows it's not good, but they haven't made any steps to formally ban it cuz it might make the people unhappy. Ultimately, you want people to have families, not just go to brothels, cuz the base of the Feudal System is the Nuclear Family. So, while I can see your reasoning, officially sponsoring a "pleasure house" is feh. I could see, however, opening up some sort of performance hall that would offer fine prostitutes to nobles and distinguished guests that would spy on them and get information.
>>
>>2924266

Just a unit ?


>>2924286
we can find other ways.
>>
>>2924169
Adding onto the pleasure house idea, start up a guild for the prostitutes that ensures safety, security, training, and quality healing services.

>>2924335
>There is some clash with the knights and the inhabitants, the former slaves in particular. The knights berate them on the fact that they don't worship the Light, the citizens reply that it wasn't the Knights that helped them when they were in need. There is also tensions with the small non-human population, as they knights try to push them to fight.
>>2924339
There's only a little bit of prostitutes left, you don't want to promote prostitution, that's the stupidest fucking shit for your country, it will RUIN the nation for all the ripple effects it will cause.

>>2924345
I think that means they were provoking them. not trying to get them to fight us.

When has promoting some casual prostitute use ever ruined a country?
>>
>>2924339
That s a good question they could be just recruits with some veterans knights, a mix of both ..... or a veteran missionary force for prepare a crusade against the North.


No anyway they were send in small squads from the border, now all of them have probably regroup in Thoreric ... so bet a small army similar to the one where we got ambushed (probably a bit bigger, at least some veterans and actual organization).

>>2924320
We could make some of the prostitutes maids and give them to noble houses ... before that they will serve as maids under us (so we have some cheap loyal spys in noble houses we don t trust),

Ok dude.
>>
>>2924377
Doesn't matter, pushing them to fight is still inciting a riot, which is almost as bad.
It's not about "promoting", it's about prostitution flourishing. If we legalize it and set up a few "Pleasure houses", we make a legal basis for all the other provinces and nobles to make them, and it may upset lords who were disgruntled, but okay with our ruling, but now they have even more reason and basis for it. Again, prostitution ruins the nuclear family, which is the basis of the Feudal Process and most governments that ever existed. I'm not saying opening these Brothels will directly destroy the Empire, I'm saying all the implications and ripples it creates will, if not now, then in 5 or 20 years.
Also, Rome.
>>2924383
Only one force of Knights were allowed in, they were personally escorted to kill the Undead, so unless The Light has been funneling them in by secret, there's only as many as were let in originally.
>>
>>2924406
Rome fell because it relied on concurring new lands to pay the soldiers who captured the last bunch of land. Also Barbarians, and some dumbass's decision to split the empire in two.
Rome had prostitutes during their height. No one says prostitutes were important in that.
>>

You're fucking stupid dude, look up any book about the fall of rome, they will say prostitution and sexual deviancy was a major contributing factor. The Germans just finished them off

Sure buddy. Whatever you say

>>2924406
While it does put the nuclear family at risk, a warring society such as ours has a surplus of women given the men are not forming families in the army.
Without a conquered people to rape the men will begin to more and more exert themselves on our civil populace.
And later many of them will of likely died so without women dying in the flesh trade we would end up with more and more useless mouths.

But to keep other nobles from opening them we could make it so people need a Charter to open a whorehouse and just never issue it to anyone else.

If by Warring society you mean Feudal society, then, we just got off war, soon these men will settle down again with their families again and work land and have many children. Also, soldiers did not rape that much, lmao. "Warring societies" certainly did not sustain their population on rape, that's the most retarded thing I've ever heard. Speaking of this, we really should discuss with Lazarus how we want to do armies, Feudal armies were made from levies who typically went home after campaigns, so, after new years we should talk with Lazarus.

You send a unit to Thoreric to arrest the Knights of the Light, and bring them to the capital to face punishment. You also ask the Cardinal to convince them to give up without a fight. You explain that they are about to start trouble and that you want to treat all three faith the same, but if these Knights kill your citizens or harm them in any way, then you'll have to remove them by force and put some form of penalization on the faith of the light. The Cardinal reply that even if they worship the Light, they are a military order, with a Grand master, and they aren't under the control of the church. He's still going to try and talk with them.
>You have sent a unit to arrest the Knights of the Light : 2 weeks

You order a proper census of the non-humans population, to know exactly how many there are of them, you also send team of scholars, to study their culture and religions, and archive it for future generations. Letters are sent everywhere in the Empire, and you should have the result next week.

You reach out to the craftsmen in the city, and you offer to pay them to take the street kids as apprentices. They are reluctant at first, they don't think the kids will stay focused on the job, some of the craftsmen even believe they'll take this opportunity to steal from them. You manage to convince them in the end.
You also offer something to the kids, you explain that when they get old and skilled enough, you will finance them, so they'll be able to open their own workshop. A lot of them accept, happy that the beautiful Empress give them a chance for a better life.

You hire more of the prostitutes as maids for the Castle Staff for the upcoming feast. They are happy to have a more secure job, and a stable income, even if it's less than what they got back on the streets. You also open some sickhouses for the other, so they can work as nurses to help the doctors. All in all, thank to your work, there is no longer any prostitutes in the streets. This give you another ideas, and you start the construction of a Clinic in Drack's Keep.

This is the big day. Throughout the week, the servants and maids prepared the great hall, the guest rooms are all clean, And an incredible amount of food was prepared for the people. It's a public celebration after all.

You are in your room with everyone. Silviana is helping you, Irene and Ruriska get dressed and Shelur tries to make up. Dillon volunteered to watch the door. You decide to go with bold for everyone, just like your coronation. Putting on your dress, you hear a noise outside, then the door opens, and your husband enters.

His armor is dirty, with dry blood in one place. He take off his helmet, and look at everyone in the room, then he go straight for you, and look at you in the eyes, then smile.

You look at your husband, and give him a smile, you are happy to see him.

>"Hello,my dear it's nice to see you. Come here."

You walk up to him, and you are about to hug him but then, a horrible smell com to you. You husband smell of old sweat and blood. You stop and look at him with a digusted face.

>"You . . . Really need a bath, my dear husband. You're no longer on a battlefield, and we have a party to attend."

Your husband frown, then sniffs his armpits, then make a disgusted face too.

>"Yes you are right. I need o clean myself. We'll talk during the celebration." he say.

He then go to the bathroom. You and the girls finish dressing up, then your friends go wait for you outside. After some time, you husband get out of the bathroom, cleaned up, and completely naked. He go take another amor, and you help him put it on. After the two of you are ready, you get out of the room, but not before Lazarus grab a handfull of your ass, you make a cute yelp and look and him with an angry look, but he just grin.

You, Lazarus, and your retinue, go to the great hall. It is richly decorated, with magnificent banners of your empire, many candlesticks, and carved wooden tables. A true legion of servants and maids await the beginning of "hostility", ready to meet the expectations of the guests. As you ask if everything is ready, a guard come to you, bow, and tell you the King and Queen of Ordamark are here. You are overjoyed, and go meet them. And indeed, your parents are waiting at the entrance of the great hall. When they see you, the smile, and look more at ease.

As you get in front of them, they bow to you, in a rather serious manner.

>"Oh my Queen, I'm so happy to see you. I see that you are well. I was really happy when we received your letter. It's good to see you're enjoying your life as an empress. As a mother, nothing make my more happy than seeing you happy. And you're doing a really good job, managing an empire."

>"Yes that's right," say your father, "Your laws on the non-humans, created quite a stir, but thing have calmed down really quickly. And thank to the food trade, Ordamark is getting richer. I couldn't have done it better myself."

>"Thank you both of you, I'm glad that you are here." you reply.

Your father laugh, they turn his head to your husband. He and your mother then bow to him.

>"Your highness, I'm happy to see that you are well. I hope my daughter wasn't too much for you." say your father with a smirk.

>"Oh, but don't worry, king Harald, your daughter is the best wife I could have dreamed of. And the best Empress the people could have hoped for." he replies.

You can see your father beaming with pride, the two men seem to have matured, maybe they can have a good relationship from now on ?

>"It's true, my Freya is an intelligent woman, no one can outsmart her. Sometime you need to think with your head, instead of destroying everyone who displease you." say your father, with barely hidden sarcasm.

And it's gone. You sigh, and your mother look at your father with killing intent, but Lazarus smile and reply.

>"Yes sometime the POSITION can be HARD, but your daughter have a full GRASP on the matter. I feared it could be TOO MUCH for her, but she managed to TAKE IT ALL, and since then, she's been really EAGER, sometime going out of her way to provide full SATISFACTION. It's true that she spend a LONG TIME working, but when I see her ENJOY IT, I don't have the heart to stop her. Knowing that she's doing her best FILL HER with happiness, and I want nothing more than to GIVE HER my FULL support." say your husband with a grin.

Your father look at the dark lord, with a fake smile, and barely contained rage. You mother blushes slightly, put a hand on her mouth, and utter an amused "Oh my !"

>"LAZARUS !" you shout, red as a beet, and embarrassed beyond reason, "I think the king understand you view on the matter, now why don't we go and get ready together for the celebration ? The King and the Queen are guests of honor after all."

>Yes of course my dear Queen, we'll have all the time to talk, once the party's started." reply Lazarus.

Do you wish to do something before the celebration start ? If not, write "start the party".

Before you start the feast, you ask an advisor to give you the guest list. There is, of course, all the nobles and their families. Lady Illnir is going to be present as well. There is also the Steward of the Cardinal of the Light, the Archpriest of the North Gods, and the Great inquisitor of the Black Moon. There is also the dwarfs Grand Craftmaster, and his most trusted craftmen and engineers. All the major Dark Elf houses and clans will be here, as well as the representative of the woods elves. And of course everyone who wish to come, as this is a public celebration.

The advisor don't fear any attempt at your life, but with the high number of commoners, there could be bandits, or evil doers among the people. Lazarus say he's going to increase the number of guards, with some soldiers, just in case. And the generals will be present too, so it's like you have an elite troops on the look out.

The advisor also explain that it could be a good idea to look out for the Three religious leaders, as it could be bad if there is a fight, due to some misunderstanding. He tell you that's the high elves aren't here, because they don't like anybody. The advisor tell you, with all due respect, that the high elves are . . . haughty, with the other races. He tell yo that the non-humans leaders are also going to be present but they'll be late.

After everything is ready, you go sit on your throne, and you order the guards to open the doors of the castle. Soon, the people enter, the nobles and importants people, like the priests and military officers, then everyone else. The servants and maids start their work, and propose foods and drinks to the guests. Jus in case, your husband increased the security, indeed you can see a lot of soldiers, some even in heavy armor, walikng among the people. After some time, Lazarus get up from his throne, and servants ask fo the attention of everyone. When all the people are quiet, the Dark Lord nod.

>"Good evening, I'm happy to see so many people here for the end year celebration, the first of many more. In the last months, you rebuilt, you created, you came together as people of the Drack Empire. When I see you, there is only one thing I can say. I AM PROUD OF YOU."

The crowd applauds, then your husband resumes.

>"We still have a lot of work ahead of us, but with strength, sweat, and blood, we'll overcome any struggle. we are strong, YOU are strong. For now enjoy this feast, organised by your Empress, as thanks for the hard work of the people. Eat, drink, dance, and remember, this is a reward for your dedication. To the Empire. CHEERS."

Everyone cheer, and soon the party is in full swing. People enjoy the food, they joke with each other. The servants and maids are ready to serve anyone, and the guards, walk among the guest.

You are with Lazarus, and you retinue, your father and your mother, Lady Illnir joined you after you spotted her within the crowd,and all of you eat some delicious peacock breast, with refreshing wine. What do you do ?

For later

Since there is the Grand Craftmaster of the dwarfs and the Dark elves houses we should definetly talk with them.


I don t know about the religious figures, maybe ? ...... it could help with the ArchPriest (especially with the effort of conversions to the non-humans).


ask him what he thinks about the construnction of some new chapels [30 in wood/ half their money] or about some sanctuarys in rural areas [80 in wood/ some little statues with a little structure that protects them/used by farmers&non-humans hunters/half their money] ...or even a cathedral.)

For Black Moon and Light i suggest to stay neutral.

You take this opportunity to introduce your friends to your parents.

>"Father, Mother, I want you to meet the members of my retinue, I'm sure you'll find them interesting." you tell them.

>"Of course, I can't wait to learn about the people who are at your side." replies you father.

>"Yes, of course you remember Silviana, and Irene." you say.

>"I's a pleasure to see you again, your highnesses." declare Silviana as she do a curtsey.

>"Yes the little Silvie, I'm glad my daughter have a close friend like you. I thank you for your dedication." say your mother.

>"You honor me my queen." she reply.

>"I see that you are as sharp as ever, Nerva." say your father, as he see the sword that Irene carry.

>"Yes my king, Even if we are safe here, I can't just let my guard down." replies Irene.

>"Good good, this is proof that you want to protect Freya. Keep up the good work." he laugh.

>"This woman here is Ruriska Melraes, one of the general of our army, and a skilled warrior." you explain.

>"It's an honor to meet you again, my lord."

>"I've heard about you, they say that you're ruthless." ask your mother.

>"Only to please my lover, my queen." say Ruriska with a grin.

The two women laugh, and you can't shake the feeling that your mother have a side of her that you don't want to konw about.

>"And this is Shelur, she has sworn eternal loyalty to me, and train me in magic."

>"An orc ! This is incredible, we usually don't see your kind in the North." declare your father.

>"I didn't come here of my own free will, but the Empress made me free, I have an eternal debt to her." replies the orc.

>"Impressive. This is good Freya, an orc has a bodyguard gives you status and prestige." explain your father.

>"This boy here is . . ." you start, but then Dillon take a knee, and bow his head.

>"MY NAME IS DILLON, I AM BUT A LOST SOUL THAT YOUR DAUGHTER WAS KIND ENOUGH TO GUIDE BACK TO THE PATH OF HONOR ! MY LIFE BELONG TO THE EMPRESS, HAS I'LL NEVER BE WORTHY ENOUGH TO BE AS GREAT AS HER !" shout the boy.

You and your friends facepalm, Lazarus laugh, your father look at the boy with concern, and your mother siffle a laugh. you notice a number of people around you have turned around to look at the kneeling boy. This is awkward. Then Ruriska go and slap Dillon on the back of his head.

>"Stop it, your embarrassing the Empress." She simply say, used to it."

>"Ouch, i'm sorry, I thought . . ."

>"Don't, this isn't good for you." say the dark elf.

>"Yes . . . wait a minute . . ."

>"As you can see, he's rather . . . enthusiastic at time, but he's a good boy." you say.

>"I see what you mean." chuckle your mother.

>"And Lastly, Ellisa Illnir, Ruler of Asoevia." you declare.

>"A pleasure."smile the girl.

>"My ! The pleasure is all mine," replies your mother. "I didn't know my daughter had such prestigious friends."

>"Actually this is rather new. I would be a poor widow, without anything if not for the Empress."

>"Yes, our Freya is kind like that."

>"I have to admit, I was the one who taught our daughter how to be honorable." say your father with pride.

>"I've heard you were a great king and. . ."

Damn, she got him, she managed to get your father to like her. Your mother don't seem bothered by this.It's just Illnir trying to get on you father good side, after some time they talk about trade, and she try to have a trade agreement going. She's good. You let your friends and family discuss between themselves and with Lazarus, you go meet the guests.

Since the Grand Craftmaster of the dwarfs and the Dark elves houses are here, you could go talk with them. You could also talk with the religious leaders, or mingle with your subjects. there is also the wood elf representative.

You decide to go talk with the Archpriest of the Gods of the North. As you approach him, he notices you and your husband, and bow.

>"You highnesses. This is a magnificent feast, the people are happy."

>"Thank you for your words. We are also happy with your trust and support during these last weeks. We think the Faith of the Gods of the North is really important for the people of our empire, it is a part of our history, of what make us northerner."

>"You're right my Queen, There is so much more to it than what the Light follower want to make the people believe."

>"I understand. That's why I thank you for everything you have done. Tell me, Archpriest, what do you think about the empire ? How do you think we are doing, as a nation ?"

The old man think, then start talking.

>"I think you are doing good as an Empress, you created a lot, and helped the unfortunate, but for the common man, there isn't so many differences. He still wakes up in the morning do his work, and go to sleep, with the usual fun, and prayers. This is the truth of feudalism. Don't take it as an offense, but you can change the head of the state, and the common farmer won't care, because he need to make a living. I mean, of course, they love you, you are beautiful, kind and want to improve things, but this is not a change at the core. You can't change the way thing work." he tells you.

>"So what your saying is," say Lazarus, "we should try to improve the commoners way of life ?"

>"Well, not exactly, if you want to have an impact, you need to radically change the system, because if not, you're just another lord, like the previous one, and the next one." he explains.

>"This . . . is an interesting view, for a man of the cloth." you say, surprised.

>"I'm not interested in politics, I think the world deserve better, but this doesn't mean that i can't learn a thing or two." he winks. "Don't worry, as rulers, you are both doing good. I'm just saying, even if you are the Dark Lord and Dark Queen, and your names will be written in history, the simple man don't see the change. Trust me when I say that the commoners think about his next meal, rather than politics."

You think about what the old Archpriest just said. Maybe he's right. Do you ask something else ? If not, do you talk to someone else ?

You go meet the Dark Elf, they have been very enthusiastic about helping the empire, and you think that thanking them and listening to their ideas is the best thing to do. You walk towards them, they are between them, and joke while drinking wine. When they see you and you husband approach, they smile and raise their glasses.

> "Our respects, your highnesses, we drink to your power, and the prosperity of the empire."
say man.

> "We thank you, it honors us that the clans are like in our castle on this evening of celebration." replies Lazarus.

>"We are more than happy to be here. What can we do for you ?" ask a mature elf woman.

>"We would like to know more about your people, and perhaps discuss to achieve common interests." you tell them.

>"It would be a pleasure. You see, what our people want is achieving personal satisfaction, by amassing wealth, gathering knowledge, or seeking the ultimate pleasure, and they are ready to do anything to get it. It seems very violent and hedonistic for outsiders, but I can assure you that this is purely cultural. We know how to respect the laws of the country in which we live." a young woman explain.

>"It's true. Look, the other day, my father and I organized an orgies for some friends, and during the party, one of the girl killed a guest, she was an assassin send by another family to kill this man, because they had a feud. You ould say this is underhanded and barbaric, but this is what we do." a man tell you.

>"I understand. I can promise you this, as long as those 'cultural tension' don't spill out in the empire, you won't have to fear retaliation." you say.

>"We thank you for this." smile another woman.

>"Maybe you have several ideas on how the empire could improve ? I'm willing to listen and consider some of them." you tell them.

>"Well, more exchange between social classes would be welcome. It is rare for a peasant to be able to exchange his vision of the world. I know you had a university built, why not open small schools in other cities? And maybe train teachers to travel across the empire, and educate youth ?" explain a man.

This is an interesting proposal, but it could cost a lot. How do you replies ?
>>
>>2928994
Way too much. We could renovate some churches to do scholasticism if they're not already.
>>
>>2928994
first lets see how the university turns out and than maybe in summer the schools project can begin
>>
>>2929007
We can just expand church schools to maybe, teach more mundane stuff like just native northern language or basic numbers and accept peasants. Look up Scholasticism.
>>
>>2929011
we discuss what we say to the dark elfs not what we will do but i would say on the land and small villages the church will teach and in bigger citys we will build a school
>>
>>2929013
Schools are fucking expensive and impractical without proper teachers, we need to slowly expand, and churches most likely already have the capacity. There's a difference between teaching smart people and teaching peasants who can't even read or write. Everyone goes to churches, it's the easiest method, and it also gets them more devout, which helps us. Of course, we will have to balance the power of the church and keep them in check, but they are still very useful.
>>
>>2929015
anon we discuss what we say to the dark elfs not what we will do in the next weeks/months
>>
>>2929018
Are you retarded? We just mention we could instead ask the churches to allow the smallfolk to attend there for basic schools like reading and writing and that will infinitely improve the conditions of the country.
>>
>>2929019
anon are you autistic? Of course the church will teach them you retard and later we will build schools in bigger citys
>>
>>2929024
You are some sort of stupid spic who doesn't understand english or something, I'm saying we don't build huge expensive fucking schools in every city you stupid faggot. I'm saying we don't have enough educational theory to even attempt them. We could only build top tier universities for people with money. What I'm saying is, there's fucking churches in cities you stupid cunt, so we upgrade churches throughout the country and it doesn't cost as much but builds a backbone for the future. We tell them that we could upgrade the scholastic system of churches, who already have the facilities, and see what the dark elves opinion on that is.
>>
>>2929026
jesus h. christ you are autistic. where did i say we build a fucking school in every god deam city you god deam gook of course we don´t have the teachers you idiot i said in the future we can build schools in "BIGGER" citys and the church will teach in the beginning so the peasants get some basic knowledge
>>
>>2929039
Okay, then we are in agreement. Also, calling me a gook makes no sense, you type like someone who doesn't speak English, while I type like someone who does. Makes me think you are some type of chink.
>>
>>2929042
na im not a chink but a europoor
>>
So yu're going to tell them you'll see with the churches about possible changes in education, notably Scholasticism.
Is his correct ? If YES, i'll start writing.

>>2929055
Yes.

>"I have heard your proposal, and I find it interesting, but it will take a lot of work, and I think it will be years before we can see results. However, I will be talking to the churches so that we can develop a learning system. most villages have a church or temple, and the priests do religious education, I think it would be possible to create a program to adapt to the population.

You decide to go and thank the Grand Craftmaster of the dwarves. You think they are doing a good job, and that they will be vital for the future. As you walk towards them, you notice that the dwarves are drinking, eating and laughing. Except the Grand Craftmaster, he remains upright and solemn, his armor is impressive, covered with runes. You know that it serves both for ceremonies and for war. When they see you coming with Lazarus, he walks towards you, and bows slightly.

>"Dark Lord Lazarus, Dark Queen Freya, It's an honor to finally meet you. I have to thank you, Lord Lazarus, I know that you fund several workshops, and that you encourage inventive initiative and engineering. It is good to see a man so interested in the art of stone and metal . . . Well, not really a man in your case." He Laughs heartily.

>"Indeed, I was always interested with your war machines, and with the threat of war, I think it could be good to use any advantage I can have." replies your husband.

>"This is good. In all of my years, I learned one thing, You need to use the peace to prepare for war. This is how the world is."

>"A shame really." say the Dark Lord jokingly.

>"Don't lie I know you enjoy the Carnage of war. Me too, would like nothing more than to take out my old hammer and crush a dozen skulls. alas, my time is over. During your next fight, beheaded some enemies for me." smile the old dwarf.

The two men laugh, it looks like they understand each other. You husband call a servant, to bring some beer, and the two of them cheer and drink. It looks strange, seeing a 4ft tall dwarf, laughing with a 8 feet half demon.

>"We can't thank you enough for everything you're doing for the crown, Grand Craftmaster. The armors and the gears for our elite troops. Rest assured that your hard works haven't gone unnoticed. If we can do anything for you and your people, do not hesitate." you tell him.

>"Actually there is something I want to ask you. There is mountains, south of Drack's Keep. And I want the permission to establish a mining city, dwarf style. I'm ready to follow any rules you'll establish, pay all the taxes. But you give us the right to mine and sell all we find, and build and dig as deep as we want. I promise you a nice partnership, as your husband already fund several workshops. If you want something built or created, we'll be happy to do it, for small price of course."

The Grand Craftmaster extends his hand towards you. How do you replies ?
>>
>>2929109
He must be willing to craft 10 sets of armor every 2 months. and he must be willing to make 4 custom pieces personally for us, whether a suit of armor and weaponry, or a bathtub and matching jewelry, as increased taxes.
>>
>>2929113
>>2929109
Sets of Armor and Weapons to go with them.
>>
>>2929113
>>2929109
craft 10 sets of armor every 2 months really make it 100 and send a few of his best architects and inventors to the university
>>
>>2929117
Make it 50 and the rest of what you said. This is mastercraft primo stuff he's making, it takes time.
>>
>>2929113
>>2929109
>>2929119
And increase the custom pieces to 10
>>
>>2929119
make it 75 and we have a deal after all there is more than one Craftmaster
>>
>>2929123
Okay, you're right.
>>
>>2929123
>>2929125
Yes but he is the GRAND CRAFTMASTER if you want him to personaly make something, with all his soul and passion, it won't be the same as the other craftmaster.

So, as i'm an autistic french frog, I don't really understand what you two mean, could you please explainif you want it for you or the army please ?
>>
>>2929130
ok 50 armor-sets for the army by the GRAND CRAFTMASTER every month and 10 custom pieces for us +tax and all the rest
>>
>>2929131
every 2 month sorry
>>
>>2929131
No, the armor IS the tax itself. But, that looks gud.
>>
>>2929131
>>2929140
when you say custom pieces, do you mean you anons will choose when the time come, or can I write it in the inventory as "various jewelry and others ?"
>>
>>2929140
lets go with armor + tax they get a god deam new mining city out of it
>>
>>2929143
lets choose later what we order
>>
>>2929131
>>2929130
>>2929140
Actually, lower the Armor sets down to like 10. 10 Sets of le Dwarven made le Mithril armor is a lot by itself. So, 10 sets of Armor and 10 custom make piece requests by Lazarus or ourself.
>>2929143
Well, I think anons will choose is better, cuz we might want rune enchanted rapier or some shit one day, then Uber Metal door the next.
>>2929144
These armor pieces are probably really expensive and make our soldiers really fuckign strong.
>>
>>2929147
ok lets make a compromise the costs of the armor can be taken off the taxes ok?
>>
>>2929143
Okay, so, what's the most set of Armors he could smith in 2 months?
Also, I've thought about it a bit more, and maybe give us like 7 units worth of jewelry and riches or something, so we can just make up jewelry or something that we want, and it would appear, and we can have 3 special projects done per 2 months, like getting thrones renovated or enchantment on doors.
>>2929148
Well, the armor prob is worth more than taxes, al lthe nobles put together only gave like .67 finances worth of taxes.
>>
>>2929151
>Well, the armor prob is worth more than taxes, al lthe nobles put together only gave like .67 finances worth of taxes.
but that is only 3% tax anon don´t forget that
>>
>>2929154
Dwarves are the only ones who can craft their uber armor, it's prob worth a fucking lot.
>>
>>2929155
>>2929154
Also, this armor is being made by the grand craftmaster, who is the best. It's top tier primo stuff
>>
>>2929151
It take a long time to craft an armor, even for the Grand craftmaster. Alone, he can make two full plate amor, with all the accessories.

If he work with the craftmasters, 10 armors is no problem, but it won't be the same quality.

And yes it's worht a lot. A low noble can only dream to buy an armor made by the grand craftmaster, and the richest noble still need a fuckton of money.

>"I accept your conditions, but first I have some demands of my own. In exchange for your city, I want 10 sets of armors for the army, made by you and your craftmasters. I also ask you to take 5 custom orders, it could be armor, jewelry or anything me or my husband want, within reason of course. You do this every two months, and you have your city, without additional taxes. So do we have a deal ?" you say, as you too extends your hand and look at the dwarf in the eyes.

The Grand Craftmaster look at you, and give you a big smile. He takes your hand and shake it vigorously.

>"You're good in negotiation, this is almost too good for us." he laughs.

>"Well, you wanted some more excitement in your life, with this you'll be active all the time. It might even get you back in shape for the wars to come." you say with a grin.

>"OHOHO I like this fire in your eyes, I can't wait to see what your going to do in the future ! First Lord Lazarus, and now Lady Freya. I think this is the start of a beautiful partnership between you and my people. Now my Queen, it is customary to drink to celebrate when you reach an agreement." he laughs.

>"Yes of course, I'll have . . . ." you start.

>" NO NO NO NO, we do this dwarf style." he explains as he interrupts you.

Then a maid bring an ENORMOUS beer mug, overflowing with foam. There is several bottle worth of beer inside. The Dwarf take one.

>"This is dwarven beer, strong stuff. To you, my Queen, at to our partnership." he cheers.

He then drinks is beer, and you look incredulous, as he finishes it. he burps then look at you. You look at your mug, then at Lazarus, but your husband just shrug and smile. What do you do ?
>Just a sip.
>Drink a little, then give it back to the maid.

So that's a normal failure. At least you tried. writing.

>>2929204
wtf I thought the dc was 45 unless this has a custom dc? i think the dc is breddy high, it should be like 40 imo

>>2929206
I don't unserstand what you mean. All is explained in the pastebin called Quest mechanics. Are the results too harsh for you ?
>>
>>2929209
I thought the DC for normal failure was 45, so obviously I just remembered it wrong.
I think the DC is too hard, I think it should be reduced to 45 or 40. However, I would support increasing DC depending on the action, like obviously we don't get drunk all the time, so maybe add a +5 to the dc or something. Figure since our endurance increased, we don't get totally wrecked.
>>
>>2929219
How do you think it should go then ? It is

CRITICAL SUCCESS (100)
HIGH SUCESS (76-99)
NORMAL SUCCESS (56-75)
LITTLE SUCCESS/DEAD HEAT (50-55)
NORMAL FAILURE (25-49)
HIGH FAILURE (2-25)
CRITICAL FAILURE (1)

CRITICAL SUCCESS (100)

NORMAL SUCCESS (56-75)
LITTLE SUCCESS/DEAD HEAT (41/46-55)
NORMAL FAILURE (25-40/45)
HIGH FAILURE (2-25)
CRITICAL FAILURE (1)

Whichever is best for you of the changes I gave. I just think 50 dc is high cuz it means half the die will be a failure.

You look at the beer in your hand. Well here we go ! You carry the mug to your lips and you begin to drink. After some gulps, you stop to breathe. By the gods, it's strong! You do not let yourself down and you start drinking again. It takes several tries, but after a while, you can drink all the beer. You feel your head spin slightly, but you focus and the feeling disappears. You put the mug on the table. Lazarus clap, and the Grand Craftmaster laugh.

>"Well my Queen, I'm impressed, Not everyone can drink a full mug of dwarven beer, and stay clear like you."

>"I still have a long way to go before in can drink like a dwarf." you reply with a smile.

>"HAHAHAHA, ! No worries, it's not like you could do it anyway. You know what, as a personal thank you, I'll send one or two engineers and inventors. They could be useful for you. Well, it looks like i have to go back to my people, I need to calm them down." he say.

It's true, you see two dwarf in a heated argument, and it looks like they are ready to settle it with their fists. You say goodbye to the Grand Craftmaster, and go back to the party. After sometimes, as you're back with your family and friends, you hear a clamor, then the sound of a horn. You all turn to see, and you see something incredible.

Sebastian Morebarr is here, he come into the castle with the non-humans chiefs and leaders. Behind them a great number of warriors, ready to war. The people move away to let them passes, and the strange troop walk toward you and Lazarus. When they are in front of you, the non-humans salute, and the young Morebarr take a knee.

>"Our respects to you, Emperor Lazarus Drack, Empress Freya Drack ! Your words are our life, lead, and we'll follow !" Shout the non-humans.

>"Your highnesses, I'm back from the mission you gave me. I bring back the most talented non-humans I could find, And on the way back, I've meet with the leaders and chiefs. This is our gift to you. A full legion of non-humans ready to follow your orders. I've also brought several of their old sages, so we'll be able to write down the history of the tribes." say Sebastian.

You look at the various races in front of you. They have different armors, and you think they have different ways of waging war, still this is impressive. How do you replies to Sebastian Morebarr ?
>You outdid yourself, Sebastian. I'm proud of you.
>You did well Morebarr.
>You could have waited for the end of the celebration.

>"You outdid yourself, Sebastian. I'm proud of you." you say with a smile.

>"Thank you very much, my Queen." replies the man. You can see he's proud and happy with your compliments. Lazarus go inspect the troop. He look at a troll, then move to a goblin. After a while, he nod.

>"Those are fine warriors," he say to the non-human leaders, "I thank you for this gifts, they will be very useful, making our army ever stronger. For now they can stay here and enjoy the feast, because tomorrow, they'll be soldiers of the Drack Empire."

The leaders bow their heads to the Dark Lord and sebastian rise up.

>"I'm happy to be back to our glorious city, you highness. The journey was tiring, and cold, thank to the snow. I come with a messages too. From the Giants tribes. They have a humble request for you. With the winter, they keep their flocks, but they ask if, once spring returns, they could make their animals graze in greener lands, outside their territories. They are aware that this may be upsetting to some local people, especially human herders, and prefers royal confirmation, rather than taking the risk of trying. " he explain.

>"There is a lot of grass, what kind of beasts could upset the locals ?" ask your husband.

>"Well . . . All kind of beasts, quite big for some. Mammoth, Wooly Rhinos and Elasmotherium, Megeloceros, and all kind of Aurochs. Those beasts need A LOT of food, that why they ask before going into humans territories." say Sebastian.

At the mention of the creatures, your husbands eyes light up, no doubt eager to get his hands on some of them, to see if he can use them. You could let Lazarus decide, or you could go ahead and say yes, you're sure your husband will love it. Or you could refuse.

>"I'll allow this. But in exchange, the giants will need to gift something to the people were they take their animals, or give them some products from the animals like milk, or wool. They also need to be ready if war comes, because we can, and will use the animals as warbeasts. This will give us an incredible impact on the battlefield. Don't you think too, my dear husband."

>'You are right, my dear. These beasts will be really useful. Morebarr, you'll send an official letters to the giants, telling them they have the Empire blessing, you'll also write down the condictions. They'll be able to show it to the locals, so they won't get in trouble." declare your husband with barely hidden joy, it look like he really want warbeasts.

>"Yes my Lord, It shall be done." say Sebastian as he bow.

This give you an idea, why don't you tease your Dork Lord of a husband about his hobbies.

>"I didn't know you enjoyed this kind thing my dear, it look like you enjoy the idea of being close to these BIG things. Maybe the thought of keeping some HAIRY animals make you happy, but I think you should think about the SMELL, I don't want my husband you go into bed smelling like a mammoth. I still don't know if you do this because of your little project to breed some war beasts, or because you enjoy playing with animals, like a kid play with his puppy." you say playfully.

Behing you can hear you father stiffle a laugh, Silviana blush, your mother give you a knowing smile, Illnir put a hand on her lips with a amused smile, Irene and Shelur smirk and Ruriska is too busy chatting and drinking with Dillon to hear what you just said. Lazarus squint his eyes at you.

>"This is a useful project to increase our military power, This is only for the future of our empire." say Lazarus, a little on the defensive. " What, why did you accept, and add those conditions, if not for the fact you'll get war beasts of your own ?"

>"Oh but I don't need those war beasts, I already have one, an impressive stallion in fact." you grin.

You get closer to Lazarus, and put both your hands on his torso, and look at him in the eyes, then slowly start to caress his chest.

>"He's he is strong, enduring, well built, he can go on without rest for hours, and I enjoy riding him. I still remember how his body moved, as I rode him. I needed to move with him, and I admit that after long, my behind started to hurt. But I still wanted to do it again the next day. Truly the best."

You can see your husband eyes filling with desire, and he smile, you know right know he want nothing more than to eat you up, look like you got him going.

>"Oh yeah ? You must really miss this stallion." he say with a grin.

>"Very. Even now I wonder how my little Lancer is doing, back in Ordamark but i'm sure the stable boys are taking good care of him." you declare.

>" . . . . What ?" say your husband, completely lost.

>"Lancer, my horse, I had him since I was a kid." you replies with a smile.

>"So the stallion you're talking about . . . " say Lazarus.

>"Yes Lancer. My parent they offered him to me when I was five. He was only a foal, and we grow up together. I learned to ride with him. he is truly exceptional, and very intelligent. You know what, I'll ask my parents to bring it here in the spring, so we could go for long walks together. You can come too if you want." you tell him, jokingly.

You see the smile on your husband face dissapearing. That's not what he expected.You're proud of yourself, even if you know you have just won a sleepless night. Totally worth it. You go back to your throne, with your friends and family at your left. The important guests then come in front of you one by one and give yo their gifts. The nobles give you and Lazarus money, jewelry and alcohol, the Dark elf give Lazarus parchments and books. The wood elves offer you a symbolic branch of a thousand-year-old oak tree. The Noble women come to you and give you a big packages, and tell you to only open it when you're alone.

Then come the dwarfs, they have a surprise for you, they managed to finish the armors you commissioned. The Dark Lord want to know what they are talking about. You explain that when he was in the east, you talked with the dwarfs, and with the diplomatic talk, you asked them to make an armor for him, as a present from you.The dwarf then show you their work. A black and gold armor, with skulls on the shoulders and knees, a gold demon engraved on the chest, and the helmet is impressive, skull-shaped, scary, with imposing horns. You husband is really happy with this gift, and take you in his arms in front of everyone.

>"What did I do to deserve such a caring wife. You do so much for me, and I do so little. Now, my dear, Ask me whatever you want, and I'll do everything that withinmy power to do it." he say.

Everyone is looknig at you two. The people, the nobles, the non-humans, the servants and maids, your friend, and your parents.

You think about it. If he really want to give you anyhting you want, this is a unique opportunity. There is so much you could ask for, but right now, nothing really comes to mind. You Slide around in his arms, so your back is to his front, and you arch our back a bit so your breasts are more pronounced to him. And to the rest of the party. You put your left hand on his, and you bring your right hand on the right side of his cheek. You look at him, in his beautiful, fiery red eyes, you keep your focus totally on him. He look at you too, totally captivated by you. Atthis moment, there is only you two, it's like the rest of the room isn't even there. You smile at him.

>"But my dear husband, I don't understand. I already know I could ask the world from you and you would take it for me. I'm happy that you enjoy my present, And I would love nothing more than to see you fulfill my wishes, but right now, I can't think of anything more. All I ask for is peace and your love." you tell him.

>"I can't promise you endless peace, but I will do everything to make your dream of peace a reality. But if you ask for my love, well, I say it again. My love for you is eternal, I want you by my side for all of eternity. I would shout it a thousand times in heaven, a thousand times in hell. I love you Freya." he say, his voice full of affection.

You get closer to his face, and he kiss you, a slow, and tender kiss, loving and romantic. You close your eyes, and grab the back of his head with bot hands, and enjoy his lips on yours. You stay like that for some time, then the kiss end. You slowly separate, but keep looking at him. That when you hears a tremendous applause, the two of you turn to look, and you see all the guests, they applauds. You see the noblewomen cheering for you, the elves look happy for you two, the dwarves raise their drinks in celebration, and the non-humans shout words of congratulation. everywhere in the great hall, the people celebrate the display of love you've just showed them.

You feel a little embarassed, but then the feeling dissapear, as Lazarus slowly put you down, and hold you hand. You go back to your friends and family. All of them have happy smile on their faces.

>"This was beautiful, I'm so happy for you two." say you mother, with tears in the eyes.

>"Congratulations." add you father.

Wait, why does it look like they saw you getting married ? You say nothing, and you enjoy the feast with everyone. Silviana is talking with your mother, your father listen to Irene, and Illnir listen to your husband. Shelur is at your side, drinking wine, and you see Ruriska, still talking with Dillon. The young boy say something, and Ruriska laugh, They look like they are enjoying themselves. Maybe you could join a conversation ?

You decide to join your mother and Silviana. They are talking about you.

>"And she then used this law to get the non-humans to work in the numerous construction projects. Even now, you can see several races working in the redecoration of the castle."

>"Impressive, I knew my daughter did a lot for the non-humans, but with all the works they are doing, maybe the people opinions of them could change faster. Oh Freya ! We were just talking about what you accomplished." say your mother.

She come closer to you, and give you a hug.

>"I'm proud of you, you did not become drunk with powers, and you did a lot, for everyone."

>"Thank you mother. I'm doing what I think is best." you explain.

>"Quite. Now I need to know something. Silviana told me that you have a really good relationship with the dark lord. Everyone could see it, with the magnificent display of affection you showed us earlier." she say with a smile.

>"Well . . . Yes, he's good to me, and showed me that he can be thoughtful. He gives me a lot of freedom, and don't ask for much. You've heard him, he could give me the word if I wanted." you tell her

>"This is good, it is the duty of a husband to make sure his wife is happy. I admit that I was afraid of what he could do to you, but it looks like this is truly fate. Let's drink to that then." declare your mother, as she gives you and Silviana a glass.

You and your best friend start drinking, but your mother just take a sip, and then ask you something.

>"So, when will I be a grandmother ?"

You go wide-eyed, Silviana choke on her drink, and spill it on the ground.

>"MOTHER !" you hiss.

>"What ? This is normal for a mother to expect grandchildren from her married daughter."

>"We are . . . Working on it." you reply embarrassed.

>"Oh but that I can imagine, my darling daughter. I know that you and your husband are . . . quite a loving couple, I'm sure you two are doing your best. I tried to ask little Silvie for more, but she became so flustered, she didn't manage to say a word." laugh your mother.

>"My queen, this is embarrassing, I don't think this is proper . . . ." start your friend.

>"None of that, my dear. You'll see when you'll find a man, you'll want nothing more than to start a family." say your mother.

>"I . . . I don't . . . Just." Silviana stutter, blushing. She's so cute when she's embarrassed.

You laugh, at least you managed to dodge the children issues. You keep talking some more, and you ask your mother if when spring comes, she could send you horse, Lancer, here. She gladly accept, then you leave them, and look for another conversation to join.

>>
>>2932898
I know we already said it in like thread 1 or 2, but I wasn't sure if he wanted us to say something similar now or when they leave. I just thought they didn't have another kid cuz they have low fertility, it wasn't that uncommon, though, especially during high middle ages, it also wasn't uncommon to put your wife aside and marry a new one who could be more fertile. If the kangdom passes to us, we will then have more direct land and vassals to manage, as well as potential succession crisis. Should this game go long enough for us to have several kids who mature, they would surely fight over who would rule after we die, or even if we give up the crown to one of them. It could be trouble that would destroy The Empire.

You go talk to youe father and Irene. As yo approach, you hear them.

>"And she managed to kill the kinghts by herself. She has gained a lot of experience, and she didn't show any fear." explain Irene.

>"This is incredible, my Freya Fight . . . .Oh Freya ! Irene was telling me about your fight with two knights that attacked you during your journey. And she told me you killed two of them." say your father.

>"Yes it's true. They attacked us as we where hiding from the rain. As everyone started to fight, two of the knights sneaked on us and tried to kidnap Silviana, I then pursued them, and took them by surprise. I . . ." you start.

Then you stop, You don't want to tell your dad about the darkness you used, you eated one of the knights after all, and it look like Irene hasn't told your father about it.

>"I . . . Killed one as he was distracted, he didn't have time to react. Then I took care of the next one. He wasn't as fast as me, and I ended the fight, as my blade got through his head." you explain.

>"Marvelous, I knew I was right to have you trained with a sword, In case something like that happen."

>"Well i'm still far behind Lazarus, He took on fifteen of them, and utterly destroyed them." you say.

>" . . . I knew he was a formidable warrior. Well, he was supposed to protect you, but you had to fight, while he fought for his pleasure." say your father.

>"DAD ! Why are you like this ? Everytime you talk with him, i see two kids trying to out-talk each other. Why don't you give him a chance ?"

>"A CHANCE ? Freya, he destroyed entire kingdoms, he burned, killed, he has caused so much pain and suffering, he took you away from me. Why should I try ?"

>"Because I'm asking you to ! Listen, didn't you saw earlier what he said ? How I replied ? I learned a lot about him, he trust me, he care about me. HE LOVE ME ! That why you should at least try to be civil with him. He'll ever do anything bad to me. Trust me."

Irene say nothing as you talked back to your father. He look at you then close his eyes and sigh.

>"Alright, I'll do this for you. I don't think I'll ever be able to be friendly with this . . . with him, but I'll try to at least talk with him, as a king to another."

You smile and hug your father. Then you talk some more, about how you are training to get stronger, your father approve, but tell you to not forget about keeping your mind sharp too. Then you leave them, and look for another conversation to join.

You decide to go talk with Ruriska and Dillon. They are enjoying their time together, Ruriska is pretty close to Dillon, and you can see him slightly blushing. You also see him lower his eyes, and look at the cleavage of the dark elf. You turn to Shelur with a grin.

>"Shelur, it look like those two are enjoying this party, why don't we go and "enjoy" it too." you tell her as you point to the two of them.

Shelur look, then grin.

>"Yes, we can't let those two alone, after all." she replies

You walk up to them, as Ruriska laugh with Dillon, when they see you they separate.

>"My Queen, this is a really nice party, we are happy to be here."

>"I can see it. Tell me, how was your date ? Ruriska told me about how she was so impatient at the thought of spending a day with her favorite boy." you ask Dillon with a smile.

You see Ruriska blush, she understand what you are trying to do. But Dillon smile.

>"She said that ? Ha ah. . . Well, in the morning I took her shopping, we looked at an armory, then at a book dealer. The General have quite the refined taste when it come to books."

>"Stop it, I just like poems, okay !" say Ruriska.

>"After that, I took her to a nice restaurant in the main street. I used the money I got from my job as your servant for . . . ."

>"Wait a minute, you're getting paid ?" ask Shelur.

>"Well yes, of course, Why ?" he replies.

>"Don't try to change the subject, what happened next ?" you ask.

>"Then I wanted to go to the tailor, so I could buy a dress for the general, but she didn't want to. After a while I managed to convince her. I bought her a cute pink dress. She was really beautiful." the boy smile .

>"But she didn't wear it tonight ? I'm disappointed in you general." you frown.

>"My queen, please, this isn't . . . "blush furiously.

>"Shush. And after that ?" continue Shelur.

>"What do you mean ? We finished the date, and we got back to the castle."

>" . . . . WHAT !!!" you shout with Shelur. "You didn't do anything ?"

>"Wh. . . What was I supposed to do ?"

>"Oh boy . . . . Look Dillon when a man take a woman to a date, buy her a dress and a nice meal, she may want to . . . ."

>"STOP RIGHT HERE FREYA !" shout Ruriska.

You are surprised, but you grin and continue.

>"Why, General ? Aren't you the one who told me about how the boy was cute ? Or how you were happy when you learned he was a virgin ? I'm sure you would love nothing more than eating him up. But you were afraid it could be too much for him. After all, you can be a little . . . extreme at a time." you joke.

Dillon his red as a beet, you smile, but when you see Ruriska, you lose it. She looks really angry, you can see her gritting her teeth. You start regretting what you said, maybe you went too far this time.

>"To Hell with this." say the dark elf.

She walks really fast, you think she may try to slap you, but instead she goes to Dillon. She then grab him by the collar and proceed to give him a sensual kiss that put yours to shame.
>>
>>2933673
Quietly apologize for embarrassing them so much and tell them how happy you are for them.
>>
>>2933673
applaud them and say to Ruriska to took you long enough
>>
>>2933673
appologize to them. might have pushed too far.
>>
>>2933791
>>2933726
you are no fun
>>
>>2933734
>>2933673
This, our plan to melt her tsundere has worked and she has taken another step towards a happy, fulfilled life.
>>
You look, incredulous, Shelur whistle, and you see all you friends looking at the two lovebirds. Theys kiss for a long time, Dillon looking really surprised by this turn of events. Ruriska explores the mouth of her partner, both of them breathe noisily, their tongues dancing with each other. Then Ruriska withdraw from Dillon mouth, the boy is looking at the elf, at a total loss of words.

>"Ge . . General . . . I . . ." he start.

But Ruriska gently put a finger on his lips, and hush him.

>"Don't say anything. Just enjoy it." she say, with a sensual smile, and she kiss him again.

This time Dillon close his eyes, and as she told him, and enjoy the kiss. You applaud them, and you are joined by everyone else. We then finish, go you to Ruriska and give her a smile.

>"Hey, took you long enough ! But seriously, I'm really happy, for both of you, I alway thought you were made for each other. I apologize for embarrassing you so much, I just wanted to give you a little push." you tell them.

>" I know, and I'm not mad at you. I just didn't want to fuck it up." replies Ruriska.

>"CONGRATULATION !" shout the Dark Lord as he clap. "You got yourself a nice man . . . well at least a nice boy."

>"Thank you my Lord." the dark elf say as she bow.

>"I knew you'll end up together." say Silviana.

>"Took your swee time hu ?" add Irene.

>"This is how it was supposed to end, you love the boy after all." continue Shelur.

>"Nice, I live a good love story." smile Illnir.

>"ah to be young again." say your mother, amused.

>"You did good boy." finish you father.

Dillon is clearmy embarrassed by everyone, but keep his head high, Ruriska just wave her hand.

>"Thank you everyone, really thank you. Now then . . . ." she start.

She grab Dillon by the chin, and her kind smile dissapear and gives way to a predatory face, with her sadistic smile.

>"Dillon, right now, the two of us are going back to our bedroom, and we're going to go at it like rabbits. I'm going to screw your brain out. It will involve chains and leather, and we're going to enjoy it to the fullest, are we clear ?" she say, but it's more an order than a question.

>" . . . . Ye . . . yes general." replies the boy meekly.

>"Good boy. Don't worry, I'll be gentle, and I don't bite . . . at first. And please, call me Rury." she smile.

She then take his hands, and lead him away, back to their quarters. You can swear you see her licking her lips. Godspeed boy. You can do it. We believe in you. You and your friends then go back to talking and enjoying the party. Then, It's time to dance. It is customary for the king and queen to open the ball, You can see Lazarus looking at you. Of course, you could alway choose someone else.
>Open with Lazarus.
>Dance with your Father.
>Wait for the dance to start, then dance with someone else (who ?)
>Why not with everyone ?

You decide to open the ball with your father. You present your hand to your father, and he accepts it with joy. The two of you walk to the center of the great hall, where the guests have moved aside to leave enough room for the dance floor. You go to the center with your father, and you prepare for the dance. He take your left hand, and extend his arm with yours, you put your right hand on his back, between his shoulders, and he put his right hand in the middle of your back. the musician starts to play, and together you start to dance.

As the music resound around you, you and you father start by slow circles, then as the music go on, you pick up the pace. You let yourself be led by your father. He smile brightly, as you move alongside him, your heels click over the ballroom floor. He watche as your hair flow beautifully with each moves. the two of you continue this for some time, then you see Lazarus coming for the two of you. You slow down your move, and after some seconds, you stop, and slowly separate yourself from your father, and you bow to him. Has Lazarus extend his hands, and slowly take your, you father look at you in the eyes, nod, and slowly let go of your hand.


You are now in the arms of your husband, and the two of you start to dance and spin. You keep turning in delicate circles, your dark dress billowing out. You go through one dance pattern after another, but then, you get closer to Lazarus, until your breats are pressed against him, he look a you and smile. Your move become more complicated, but you don't go further, as your not confident enough to try more elaborate pattern. This doesn't stop you in any ways from enjoying the arms of yours husband, and as you slowly brush a leg against him, you feel his hand on your back getting lower, reaching your lower back. Hemake you twirl, and you go right back into his arms, but not without stealthily brushing a hand close to his lower half.

You keep doing this for all the duration of the dance, as you sensually move against his body. He respond with his hands, moving closer to some intimate parts of your anatomy, but the two of you manage to hide it to the outside eyes, or at least yo hope so. After a while, the music stop, and you embrace your husband, as the song end, you body pressed against his, your face just inches from his.

The guests applaud you performance, and you separate from Lazarus and you bow, as he do it too. Then the guests start dancing too, and you go back to your family and friends, holding hands with the Dark Lord.

I know this is 4chan, but can't you at least try to be nicer, maybe it's a lurker ? And you lashing out at everyone is getting old.

>>2936091
It's cuz they're being really dumb. If they just asked a regular question or made a comment, it's no deal at all. But they say stuff, to me, without thinking, and I think they should be punished for it
>>
>>2936093
>>2936091
That is, the punishment is that this experience becomes more memorable in the hopes that they learn from their mistake. I'm not trying to be a pseud pretentious asshole, what I'm trying to do is improve my experience in the quest. He linked me to a post saying we're gunna be up all night, no duh, why would I comment on this last post if I didn't already read the rest, he can scroll up and see I've been in this thread since the beginning. My point was, Freya and Lazarus both are proper worked up now.

The party is in full swing. During the whole period of festivities, you spoke with people of all social classes, peasants, merchants, nobles, soldiers, churchmen, human or not. You listen to what they have to say, their lives, their jokes, but also their complaints. This is good for your ireputation, and good rumors about you are going to go around. After several hours, the party ends, the servants invite the crowd to go back home, and after everyone is gone, the gate of the castle close.

Morale : +1

You talk again with your parents, then it's time for you to go to bed, you all go to the Royal wing, you guide your parents to their rooms. They embraces you one last time, then wish you a good night. Then your friends do the same. Your are now alone in the corridor of the Royal wing with your husband, and has you walk toward your bedroom, Lazarus put a hand on your behind, and grab it with force, you hold back a moan, but he keep massaging your backside, until you arrive in front of the door of your bedroom. He opens the door, and you go in, and as soon as it closes behind you, you throw yourself on your husband, and you kiss him sensually, he respond in kind, and you explore each other mouth, your tongues wrestling with his, you wrap a leg along one of his, and presses yourself against his body. As you separate to catch your breath, Lazarus look into your green eyes.

>"I missed you so much, everyday, I wanted nothing more than to go back to you. " he tell you.

>"And now you are here, so let's catch up on the lost nights." you replies.

>"No need to tell me twice." he grin.

He grab you by the thighs, and carry you to the bed, he lay you on it, and kiss you.

>"I'm going to take this armor off, just wait." he say.

You look as he start to undress, taking off each piece of his armors, you wait for him to finishes, when you see on the side the big package that your friends the noblewomen offered you. They told you to wait to be alone before opening it. Your with your husband now, so you could take a look while he undress.
>Open it.
>Don't open it.
>>
>>2936197
>>Don't open it.
>>
>>2936197
>Open it.
Is this a big dildo or some nice lingerie or wat
>>
>>2936201
And thats why we dont open it now
>>
>>2936209
What you mean, it's the perfect time then. Armor takes like 20 minutes to remove by yourself. Also, if it's some type of trap, then Lazarus can save us quick.
>>
>>2936209
Look in the inventory, Lingerie gives bonuses, and these bonuses can be used to influence Lazarus and get us even more stuff and also it pleases him which makes him *please* us even more. If it's some huge dildo, then we can just hide it for later or whatever. We certainly have time to do as we please, in my opinion.
>>
>>2936219
QM is he right with this? If yes than Support

>>2936235
Look in the pastebin at the top, what the fuck

>>2936236

>>2936239
Google how long it takes to take armor off, dude. It has like a thousand straps, and then he has to remove the chainmail and gambeson under it.
>>
>>2936235
Yes, Lingerie give bonuses to the lovemaking.

And yes, it take some time for Lazarus to take off his armor, He's wearing heavy plate all the time, dark lord and all you know.
>>
>>2936201
>>2936197

While your husband is taking off his armor, you go take the package, then go back to bed. You are really curious about what could be inside. You open it, and you blush slightly, and take it out.

It's a lingerie set, made of black and blue leather, with a matching corset, biceps length gloves, and stockings, there is also a pair of thighs black boots. You keep looking into the package, and you see chains, a blindfold and a bit gag. You shallow audibly while looking at this set. You find a letter in the package, and you read it.

>Dear Freya, we didn't know what to give you for the end year celebration, you don't need money, or dresses, and we know you have the dwarves for weapons and armor. But we thought of our little party with you last time, and how did you tell us about your husband. So we decided to offer you something that will please you both. Enjoy your night. With all our affection.

You see numerous name at the end of the letter, the noblewomen. As you look at the set, your husband come to you, and look at it too, then smirk.

>"You have interesting friends, they are so considerate. Now my dear why don't you try it ? To see if that suit you ? He say.

You nod, and start putting the leather lingerie on. You start with the gloves, feeling the smooth texture on your arms, then you put on the corset, tightening the straps, enveloping your body in a sumptuous way. After that you slowly put on the stocking, as they cover your smooth, pale skin, and Finally the boots. You look at yourself in the mirror, and you become red as a beet. You would never have thought about putting on something like this a few months ago. You can feel the intense gaze of Lazarus, devouring you with his eyes.

>"Impressive, truly impressive. We now need to test its resistance during an intense and prolonged activity. Why don't you wait for me to finish undress on the bed." say your husband.

You go back to the bed, and lie on it, and watch your husband undress. He takes of the rest of his armor, and after his chainmail fall on the ground, you can enjoy the sight of his incredible musculature. He bends to undo the straps on his legs, and finally take of his pants. You admire the power of his machine, in all its splendor and glory, ready to perform his duty, and you bite your lower lip, as you imagine the fateful meeting that will soon take place. Lazarus then go into the bed, and is on top of you, he then looks at the accessories.

>"My dear, you are so beautiful, If I could, I would spend all eternity with you in my arms. But I'll have to settle for these hours together." he say, as he kisses you.

He then takes the chains, the bit gag and the blindfold. You have an idea of what's going to happen next. You could let it happen and enjoy it. Or you could try to turn the tables. (This choice is going to unlock a trait.)
>He leads.
>You lead.
>>
>>2936397
>He leads.
Sheeeeiit, I don't even like blindfolds and all this shit.
>>
>>2936397
>>You lead.
oh boy what can go wrong
>>
>>2936417
pls no, you're going full degenerate
>>
>>2936419
what let´s but a blindfold on him. hey it will be fun
>>
>>2936420
and also chains and also a ballgag. In truth, I just hate bdsm type stuff and don't want to go this route at all, but at least don't want Freya to develop a kink for it. I'm okay with spanking and rough play, but I don't think this type of stuff is intimate and therefore hate it. I also sorta don't think Freya has enough character development and corruption to be into it either.
>>
>>2936424
it can be a one-time thing anon
>>
>>2936431
It's not, though. QM says it will add some type of trait, though I'm not sure if it's a different trait for either choice, or just for if we lead.
>>
>>2936432
different traits based on what you choose.

>>2936424
It's not really a ball gag, but the type that you bit into. And yu can create character development, I'm sure it need to be slwo, but if you keep being the nice girl, then you'll stay the nice girl.

Corruption, will change how you think, but also change you appearance to a point.
>>
>>2936432
the traits will most likely be something like dom or sub so leading is better long term for our to-do-list
>>
>>2936440
Really, I just don't like tight leather and latex, and bdsm gear. I don't really like lingerie either, but it's not that bad.
>>2936443
I'm more concerned about what is in character than what is best long term. I'd rather Freya make a mistake than power/metagame, so, in my opinion, letting Lazarus dom us still makes the most sense. My opinion is that Freya can become evil(or not) over time, without needed to torture people for pleasure and do totally deviant stuff.
>>
>>2936397
>>He leads.
>>
>>2936448
but he is always the dom in every lewd where we were the passive partner. I say it´s time to change that
>>
>>2936462
No, look in the pastebin. There's a scene where we take the potions and we're on top. Also, it's only natural for the man to typically be on top.
>>
>>2936397
come on lurkers vote now
>>You lead.
>>
>>2936566
It's 2:1 in favor of he leads so, I'm assuming QM has already been writing for a bit now.
>>
>>2936568
i know one can still hope
>>
>>2936397
>You lead.
>>
>>2936568
2:2 i can live with that
>>
>>2936593
I'm just assuming he's already started writing so it doesn't matter anymore. Kinda wish QM would state when he's writing, though.
>>
>>2936596
yeah he should do that and now he just has to write a little bit of both ride him and get ridden
>>
>>2936626
No
>>
>>2936627
yes
>>
>>2936596
>>2936626
I started writing, and I do the lewd pastebin too, so it go with the flow, but then the vote changed. Since this is choice give you a trait, I won't just roll.
>>
>>2936647
Typically you should say, 'vote is over, no more votes count. writing.' So you don't have to change stuff and so people can't just start samefagging to change the result as they will.
>>
>>2936397
>you lead
>>
>>2936647
I just realized fully what you meant, cuz your broken english made it a bit difficult for me to understand. You already started writing like 2 hours ago and then you stopped after that guy made the vote? I don't think I've ever seen that. It's even more frustrating cuz it will shift the quest into a direction I probably won't like, to be clear about my bias. It is stupid though that you deleted all that stuff, you put the quest back by like 2 hours, longer than it already usually is. I think that once you commit, you should stay committed.
>>
>>2936647
>>2936677
i have to agree with him and if something like this happend with the votes plz make the change a nature progress in the writing that reflect that so that you don´t have to start from scratch

OKAY I'm sorry for everyone who voted, I didn't expect this, because usually no one vote at this time. I'll make sure to properly do this next time. So we'll go with what was chosen at first.
>Lazarus lead

>>2936677
I didn't delete what I writed, I jsu fucked up with the timing as I writed, and didn't tell people to stop voting. I this can calm you, i'm writing LAZARUS LEAD.
>>
>>2936682
There should be no changes at all, imo. The point of this vote is to change the direction of the quest, that's why he stopped writing because he feels it's important enough. I think QM is a big dumb stu-
>>2936686
Okay. My concern is that, like I said before, people can just start samefagging and you have to switch back and forth lmao. 3 people is the norm for quests on /qst/, idk why this quest doesn't get more, maybe cuz your english isn't good enough, but I think you get across your message well.
>>
>>2936686
well that is disappointing
>>
>>2936692
But its also the middle of the day inthe new world. If its an inportant vote with lasting consequences its not unreasonable to let it sit for a while so everyone with an interest can vote. If it was just smut, then fine. But if its going to change things mechanically? No.

>>2936722
But then you punish other followers who post regularly on time. Besides, 4chan is an American site, for Americans. You Foreigners are just guests.
>>
>>2936725
>>2936722
Shit, I just realized you said new world. I suppose QM's problem is that he posts all day instead of running devoted sessions later in the afternoon, but he lives in France so it's like 2 am when he goes to bed. This quest is also kinda like a civ game, so it takes more time, there's less devoted character development. First point still stands, but if QM was willing to wait all day today, it wouldn't be too big of a problem, it's already been 4 hours.
>>
>>2936732
Thing is I'm not a writer. It take time to do it, and in english too. This is no excuses, but when I see some quest on this board, I think I'm doing relatively well.
>>
>>2936732
I dont know. He seemed to imply some significance in the vote. If it is as significant as he claimed, then a longer vote period is warranted. If it was just smut, and we could do the other thing tommorrow, id be fine with letting it happen. But if letting him lead ends up gimping our freedoms in some way or something like that, then its not something to be rushed.
>>
>>2936736
Youre doing fine. Some spellong and grammar issues. But not horrible.
>>
>>2936741
>>2936732
>>2936695
Okay, if I need to explain. This will show how your going to act around Lazarus in the future. I think you understand what him or you taking the lead could mean.
>>
>>2936736
your doing good QM, buy yeah your spelling is not the best but who cares. Still can´t say i´m happy with your choice>>2936686
>>
>>2936749
yes i expected that. That´s why i said >You lead.
>>
>>2936749
Yeah, so long term significant impact. I dont want to be some waifish blushing bride. I like our autonomy.
>>
>>2936736
Well, what I was saying is that, it's understandable that you typically take longer to write because you're not just writing a continuous experience from Freya's perspective, you're writing event here and event there and how does Freya's action here effects The Empire. In my opinion, these types of games take longer because you have to change environment and content often, as well as mess with numbers. So, I was trying to be critical of you, but not in a purely negative way.
>>2936738
Ya, but most voting sessions for quests are like 30 minutes to an hour. This was like 3 hours. Again, I'm fine willing to wait the rest of the day if that's what QM wants, but it just invites samefagging
>>2936750
I care. I think he's doing good, but it could be better if he had a better grasp of the language, sometimes I have a bit of trouble understanding.
>>2936749
Wait, like always we will defer to him or just in bed we prefer to be on bottom or wat? Kinda weird to make such a great change for sex, just cuz you like being bottom in bed doesn't make you timid and submissive in the rest of life.
>>
>>2936757
I dont think so many people care enough to same fag.

>>2936749
Is being switches not an option? Does it really have to be one or the other? Seems like being a sub would be a backslide in character development.
>>
>>2936764
Well, I know for a fact that >>2936752 samefagged last thread, so.
>>
>>2936757
bottom in bed does most of the time means bottom in life
>>2936767
and her we go again
>>
>>2936767
Did he samefag, or did his IP change? Cause i post from school and at home and on the bus. I get a bunch of ips
>>
>>2936772
Idk, he voted twice on the same vote and put more effort into his posting to make it seem like he's not himself(or was simply posting from phone and it was autocorrecting capitalization). He did post from that IP for the rest of the thread though, so it leads me to believe he wanted to change somehow cuz I had posted before that I thought he was samefagging. He literally admits it at the end of the thread, that's how I know.
>>
>>2936772
samething similar like this happend where ips only posted ones and since that he says i did that
>>
>>2936777
Based on how shit that attempt at samefagging was, im nore inclined to believe that hes dumb and didnt know how to delete his first post.
>>
>>2936781
I know he's dumb, but I doubt he didn't know how to post because I've seen him say, "okay, i change my vote" and connect his posts.
>>
>>2936781
basically he says i´m>>2936461
>>2936572 because they only voted ones
>>
>Had a chance to vote during a short work break
>Took it
>Next chance I get to read the thread it’s all about samefagging and how this screws up what OP was writing

Goddamnit... I just wanted to vote when I got a chance to.
>>
>>2936787
And there’s the call of me being a samefag. Great.

Just discount my vote, alright? I admit I was late, and the half hour voting period was probably up at that point, so just do that. I’ll live.
>>
after all is said and done i still think >You lead. is/was the better choice
>>
>>2936810
Well, I hate BDSM so if I had my choice, I would just avoid this whole scene.
>>
>>2936817
i dont care about the bdsm. I care about>>2936749 that we will most of the time act submissiv around Lazarus
>>
>>2936755
>>2936757
>>2936769
Always acting submissive to your husband is going to change how you act with him. You did good by staying on his good side at the
beginning, he really love you now, and trust you with politics. But if one day he decide to do something that you don't like, this will be harder for you.
>>
>>2936829
We don't always act submissive though, we topped before and took charge a few times. It's literally that almost all our power derives from him. We've only known him for a few months, and we do all the ruling. I find it hard to believe he's affected us to such a state.
>>
>>2936829
this was a choice to prove that we were equal to him and not his submissiv partner.
>>2936834
this is a choice that has heavy inpact on the Quests so that does not really matter anymore
>>
>>2936838
>>2936829
Thought it was a sex/lovey dovey thing, not a do whatever Lazarus says thing. Doesn't make sense to me. I even think Freya would like bdsm, she is not that degenerate.
>>
>>2936859
>>2936838
>>2936829
I don't even think Freya would like bdsm*
>>
>>2936859
it was not that clear or implied that this would be the outcome that is true
>>
>>2936863
I realize that bdsm is supposed to be some sort of "trust thing", but really it's just how much of a pervert loser are you to try it.
>>
>>2936859
>>2936838
>>2936863
Not "do whatever he say", but more about, you get a penalty on how you react if you go against him.
>>
>>2936829
Hey QM can we vote again, now we know what will happen only if the others are ok with that
>>
>>2936870
Should be no penalty at all, we're in control of the character, we decide, unless we're on drugs or something.
>>
>>2936870
Thats bullshit.
>>
>>2936870
A proper bdsm relationship is about trust and everyone ending up happy. Some couldsay the sub has more power because they are usually the one who dictates what happens and how far it goes. Being a sub shouldn't make you unwilling to stand up for yourself, unless its a really unhealthy relationship.
Which is why its bullshit.
>>
>>2936875
>>2936870
I still don't think Freya would even do this, but I would agree that perhaps you would write Freya a bit differently from now on, but still, we are the players, and we roleplay the character regarding major decisions.
>>2936884
It's not really a trust thing at all, it's just about how perverted you are.
>>
You know what ? Enough of this. FORGET everything about the sexy gifts, the noblewomen offred you a rare flower that represent undying love, and you got the ususal pounding from Lazarus. no pastebin, so I can get this shitshow I dare to call a quest back on tracks.
>>
>>2936888
and with this, the Quest died within another thread as QM thought that his players wanted no deviancy or character development at all.
>>
>>2936888
Don't worry QM, i'm sure your trying your best.
>>
>>2936888
can we ONLY make that choice about ther sex live and no other implication
>>
>>2936888
I think the larger issue is not that the smut would exist but that it would colour every interaction from then on, as if Freya does not have the ability to seperate the bedroom from literally everything else
>>
>>2936885
Its absolutely a trust thing. People dont let other people tie them up unless they are absolutely confident the scene goes only as far as they are willing. Get your bdsm knowledge from places that are not 50 Shades.
>>
>>2936897
Well, I think Sex affects people more than they think, but I don't think it has that much of an effect in this instance, and I don't think Freya would even try this sort of thing(yet, anyways).
>>2936900
I am, only losers do that sort of thing. It's degenerate pervert stuff that fucked up people do.
>>
>>2936893
>>2936895
>>2936896
>>2936897
Okay I calmed down, I changed the writting, so you will just get a bonus with the trait, nothing life changing.

UPDATE SOON
>>
>>2936906
I think you have a terrible understanding of sex and and what sorts of people do what if you believe that. Both of them.
>>
>>2936910
I know at the very least that homosexuals are more likely to commit crime and be paedophiles, as well as have sexual diseases, so I have something of an idea of the sort of people sex perverts are.
>>
>>2936916
I think the most telling thing is that you think homosexuals are perverts.
>>
>>2936921
Well I'm concerned with the world at large, and from my perspective of the world, Homosexuals in general are certainly not good.
>>
>>2936921
well he is not wrong but we are not here to debate that but play this Quest
>>
>>2936931
Whats your perspective? The corner of alabama where you live with your sister, cousin and girlfriend, and theyre all the same person?
>>
>>2936951
Your mom's house.
>>
>>2936953
I doubt it. We wouldn't want to do something as degenerate as miscegenation would we.
As much as your family beanpole would need some new blood, I'm afraid it's just not to be.

You decide to let Lazarus lead, He seem to know what he's doing, and you want to show him that you trust him. Lazarus doesn't lose any time, he take your arms and ties them together with the chain, at the wrists. You are at his mercy, you can only struggle. But you don't want to resist, you crave him, you want to feel his body. He then take the bit gag, and put it in your mouth, you bite it, as you can't fully close your mouth, Finally he slowly put on the blindfold on your eyes, and your world become dark. You can no longer see what's happening, you can't move, and you can't talk. You breath heavily as your husband caress your body. he ten lick your cheek.

>"Don't worry, you will enjoy this." he tell you.

-New trait = Eager
You love it when thing get a little rough for you, or if you get a little rough (+5 to lovemaking roll)
.
.
.
You wake up in the morning, and you are REALLY SORE, it hurt everywhere, You are covered in sweat and other bodily fluids. Bite marks and hickeys cover your body, as well as claw marks. Your wrists hurt you, and they are red because of the chains, but by the gods it was GOOD. Your husband doesn't lack the means to make you scream, but this time, he has outdone himself. He woke up before you, and after kissing you and splapping your backside, he go wash his body. You lie down a few more minutes, then you leave the bed, and you remove your lingerie. It's difficult to stand, and your legs are still shaking. You then join Lazarus in the bathroom. You compliment him for the very good work. You clean each other, and go back to the bedroom. After a while, Silviana come in with the maids. When she sees your body she blush, but say nothing. The maids start cleaning, and help Lazarus put on his armor, and Silviana get you dressed. The three of you then go for breakfast. Everyone is already waiting at the entrance of the room. They bow to you, you nod, and enter the dining room, and you sit next to Lazarus.

As you eat, your parents entre the dining room too, you say good morning to them, and they sit in front of you and strangely, you notice that apart from your husband, the other two men on the table look as tired as you. Dillon and your father both have big bags under their eyes. You enjoy this quiet breakfast, and think that maybe you could talk to someone.
>Your parents. (what say)
>Ruriska and Dillon. (what say)
>Lazarus. (what say)
>Someone else. (who ? what say)
>>
>>2937241
>Your parents. (what say)
"Was the Bed not to your liking? You could've asked a maid to replace it." then after all the bullying and such, ask genuinely how they've enjoyed the Capital so far and ask to go out with them on a ride or something.
>>
>>2937289
>>2937241
To clarify, I'd like Freya to ask that question genuinely, like it's never crossed her mind that her mom is a total bombshell and probably as insatiable as Lazarus and Ruriska.

You look a your father, concerned by how tired he look. Maybe the bedroom wasnt good enough ?

>"Father, You seem really tired ? Was the bed not to your liking? You could've asked a maid to replace it, if it wasn't comfortable enough." you ask him.

>"Hum ? Oh no no, the bed was good, very good in fact, as comfortable as it can be. It's just that I didn't catch a ounce of sleep. " eh tell you with a tired but genuine smile.

>"Is something is troubling you, Father ? If you are concerned about something, and it prevented you from sleeping, you can tell me about it, it will appease you without any doubts." you say.

>"Freya, my dear daughter. I'M FINE, really, this isn't something you can do. I have nothing that troubling me right now."

>"But still, you don't LOOK so good. What happened to you ?" you ask concerned.

You father then turn his head and look at your mother, she's happily eating a peach, and when she notice your father looking at her, she smile playfully and bites in a beautiful round peach while looking at your father. The king of Ordamark take a deep breath, then close his eyes and sigh, as he take his mug, filled with hot tea.

>"The night was eventful. That's all I will say." he explain as he drink his mug.

You look at yor mother, who is glowing, then your tired father, and finally you understand. You start blushing, as you realise what your parents did. You did something more extreme, but still you feel embarrassed when you think about it. Then you get an idea.

>"So this mean i'm going to be a big sister soon right." you joke.

You father spit out his tea, and everyone is looking at you wide-eyed. Your mother shallow her food, and look at you.

>"Well . . . You know, it's normal for a married couple to love each other. And when you left, it is true that we felt lonely."

>"Mathilda, I don't think this is something you should . . ." start your father.

>"Harald, she's no longer a little girl. She's a woman, she's married, this isn't a problem. Yes freya, we are trying for children. We're going for it since you left. So expect siblings in the coming months. Now I'm expecting grandchildren soon too" grin your mother.

You blush, and feel a little happy. You tried to tease your mother, but she's on a whole other level. You try to change the conversation.

>"So what do you think of the capital ?" you ask.

>"I didn't think it would be so . . . clean ? I saw the constructions underway through the city. A University, a Hospital, an Orphanage. This is impressive. It's good that you are trying to improve the life of your subjects." smile your mother.

>"Why don't we go for a little trip in the city ? Or a ride in the countryside around it ?" you ask.

>"Oh yes, this is the perfect opportunity to spend time together." replies your mother.

Then it's decided, they are going to stay here a little longer. You finish your breakfast. And then you have to go back to work.

The recruit have finished their training. Thank to your husband, and his extreme methods of training, the boy and men are now capable soldiers.

You look at the 350 000 soldiers in the fields, and you see . . . .

(you have 350 000 soldiers, you now can choose how many are infantry, archers, cavalry, ect. Here is your military)

350 000 soldiers to assign.

400,000 infantry (standard equipement)
150,000 archers (standard equipement)
30,000 Cavalry (light & heavy)
25,000 heavy knights (shock troop)
>>
>>2939680
lets make it like
>550,000 infantry (standard equipement)
>250,000 archers (standard equipement)
>100,000 Cavalry (light & heavy)
>55,000 heavy knights (shock troop)
>>
>>2939680
QM, is it possible to have studied some of the tactics of the centaurs and employ Horse Archers?
>>
>>2939682
You only have basic understanding of military, You need to learn with someone who know about it to unlock a skill.

Now where would you find a good strategist, experienced in the art of war ? :)
>>
>>2939682
these soldiers are normal humans the demi-humans are not listed anon, but yeah i want my Heavy centaur cavalry
>>
>>2939683
>>2939685
We didn't actually train the soldiers lmao, Lazarus did. I'm sure we got some dudes to the Centaur lands and look at their tactics. Also, again, this dumb anon. I'm talking about normal humans you retard, Horse Archers were employed by everyone from Romans to Mongols, they were very fucking effective at destroying armies. Of course, if you want us to work for it QM, then I accept. I'll post my suggesting after you respond.
>>
>>2939680
>500,000 infantry (standard equipment)
>200,000 archers (standard equipment)
>200,000 cavalry (light & heavy)
>100,000 heavy knights (shock troop)
>>
>>2939686
Yes you have people studying the centaurs (courtesy of Sebastian Morebarr), as I said, you could unlock the Horse Archers, IF you look into it, and maybe talk to Lazaruas about it.
>>
>>2939687
>>2939680
Okay, I support this. We need cavalry to face Hagendorf.
>>2939690
Do Infantry include PIkemen? And are Heavy Knights mounted or just fuck off huge armored boys? Also, where are our le special Dwarfen armor enhanced troops?
>>
>>2939681
>>2939687
>>2939691
i thinks its better to know what type of Infantry Archers Cavalry and Heavy Knights we have befor the decide who becomes what
>>
>>2939691
Yes infantry include pikemens
Heavy Knights are fuck huge armored boys.
Your mounted armored are the heavy cavalry.

You could talk military with Lazarus, and his generals if you want to separate the differents roles.

For example, the whole infantry become divided as swordmen, pikemen, ect.
>>
>>2939696
I think we could make just specialized PIkemen divisions and keep infantry as just mixed, including pikemen. Pikemen were only effective for a couple hundred years, then they got obliterated, but they could be especially useful against Hagendorf Cavalry. Also, Light and Heavy Cavalry were used for rather different roles, it would be good to divide them. Anyone have ideas?
>>
>>2939698
infantry should be infantry if we go for pikemen and sword&shild and divide archers in bow and crossbow it gets too much in detail. infantry should just be that infantry, men on foot with a weapon for close quarter fight
>>
>>2939701
You don't understand what I said at all, then. Specialized Pike formations were made to destroy cavalry as well as infantry formations. What I'm saying is, divide the army into:
Pikemen
Infantry(mixed swords and shield and pikemen)
Archers
Light Cavalry
Heavy Cavalry
Knights
>>
>>2939680
>>2939691
I suggest this:
>500,000 infantry (standard equipment)
>200,000 archers (standard equipment)
>200,000 cavalry (light & heavy)
>100,000 heavy knights (shock troop)
Is turned into this:
>400,000 infantry (standard equipment)
>100,000 pikemen (specialized equipment)
>200,000 archers (standard equipment)
>75,000 cavalry (light)
>125,000 cavalry (heavy)
>100,000 heavy knights (shock troop)
>>
>>2939706
but we are with our Technology at a Late middle age level and with the uni we could maybe go for the first gunpowder weapons. Do you think 100000 pikemen make sense with that background?
>>
>>2939714
Yes. I don't really want Gunpowder yet anyways, I don't even know if it's possible to get it within a year and what status it has in the setting.
>>
>>2939714
Okay, I've thought about it a bit. We could lower it by half:
>450,000 infantry (standard equipment)
>50,000 pikemen (specialized equipment)
>200,000 archers (standard equipment)
>75,000 cavalry (light)
>125,000 cavalry (heavy)
>100,000 heavy knights (shock troop)
The war probably won't be decided by a few huge battles, but by many pitched battles pepper inbetween big battles.
>>
>>2939712
>>2939715
make it
>450,000 infantry (standard equipment)
>50,000 pikemen (specialized equipment)
>200,000 archers (standard equipment)
>75,000 cavalry (light)
>125,000 cavalry (heavy)
>100,000 heavy knights (shock troop)
and we are good

>>2939716
>>2939718
AH !
>>
>>2939716
>>2939718
>>2939720
Okay, this will be the last time I change my suggestion:
>425,000 infantry (standard equipment)
>75,000 pikemen (specialized equipment)
>200,000 archers (standard equipment)
>100,000 cavalry (light)
>100,000 cavalry (heavy)
>100,000 heavy knights (shock troop)
I forgot about the scale at which we would go to war. I also forgot that Light Cavalry were typically used more often than Heavy Cavalry, which is why Horse Archers are the penultimate unit in pre enlightenment era warfare.

Now please vote by writing the number.

1 for >>2939718

>>2939734
We're gunna be fighting literally million man armies against each other, it's not too many at all, in fact, it's probably not enough, but I'm not confident enough to overspecialize on something other than Horse Archers.
>>
>>2939733
>>2939729
wait, I meant
2
lmao
>>
>>2939733
They could propose other formations.

>>2939742
. . . . don't worry
>>
>>2939736
>>2939734
The point of PIkemen will be to charge enemies and flank them. We won't be sending whole formations of 75k pikemen, we will split up the army and place 10k here and 20k there and 5k over there, we will need more for them to actually be effective against Hagendorff.
>>
>>2939743
can we vote for >>2939734 as 3?
>>
>>2939746
If you look up Pikemen, you will see they dominated European warfare for 100 years or so. Look up PIke and Shot, Tercios. They were effective well into the Enlightenment Era.

You assign the freshly trained soldiers into the army, You now have an incredible army, but still, you don't know if this will be enough, as you may have to fight against Hagëndorff, and his powerful and immense armies. His Empire wasn't caught in a bloody war, like the north.

Your army.

Can you give us a quick rundown on what they are good at/used to? We will probably have to specialize each race for certain types of tasks and warfare and use them on special occasions only.
>>
>>2939767
+
>>
>>2939767
trolls : infantry or shock troop. berzerk, eat enemies while fighting, cause fear.

gnolls : infantry, archer, shock troop.

ratmens : infantry, archers. love using poison.

goblins : infantry. swarm tactic. weak against shock troop

kobolds : infantry, archers. weak against shock troop. love using fire.

ogres : shock troop. useful to break infantry line.
weak against spear wall.

minotaurs : shock troop. useful to break infantry line, weak against spearwall.

centaurs : cavalry, weak against spear wall

giants : siege, infantry, useful to break infantry line, immune to spearwall. (they are BIG)

lamias : Infantry, cause fear.

Are you expecting us to put them in positions now or are you writing? Because, it's not even worth putting them anywhere until war breaks out, where they will be special units placed where we need them as we need them. Suppose we could invite or fund research by the Kobolds and Ratmen on their interests(poison and fire, respectively)

i'm writing, and yes you can wait for war, this is just a list so you can have an idea of what the non-humans are like and how they can be used on the battlefield.

no need to, if no one else vote, i'll take yours, and no need to rool twice. Your second set of rolls are really average compared to the first.

>>2939807
I-I thought you did best of 3 of rolls in the sections they were rolled in.

For work time, yes, as you don't have direct control.

For the social, i'll ask when you need to roll, and what the bonus is, based on what you need, beacause it's what Freya is doing directly.
Same thing for free time. Do you have any questions ?
>>
>>2939811
Well you told me no need to roll twice, when the 62 in the second set of dice is better than the 37 in the first set of dice. It was nearing an hour since the vote began, so I rolled once so there would be at least two set of dice rolled.
>>
>>2939812
don't worry, you could just accept that sometimes, not everything is going to work the first time, and you'll need to try again. No need to fret, this isn't a crit 1 on a ENDGAME FIGHT FOR THE FATE OF THE UNIVERSE. so relax. If there is only one set of roll, well . . . I'll roll with it.

and so :

37+9=46 LITTLE SUCCESS
You Invest in the Kobolds and Ratmens lands, To be able to create at least one Imperial Research Centers in each of their lands, so they'll be able to come together, and ,with the help of alchemists and scholars of your empire, create new types of Flammable and Poisonous inventions you could use. You have some success in establishing the research centers, but the non-humans are cautious, and your scholars only learn the basic formulas of poisons from the ratmen, and the kobolds don't show them all the applications they have for the fire. Still this is a good start.
-1 finances

99 (capped) HIGH SUCESS
You send your spies to investigate the Loch Arnnach monster, and find out if the rumors are true. After some days, after they arrived something incredible happened. as they were questionnig the locals of a village on the shores of the lake, a long howl is heard, all look at the lake, and a great creature emerges, a monster straight out of legends, jumps high over the water. Everyone look, fanscined, and scared, while the mythical beast jumps out of the water several times, screaming a deep scream, then disappears again into the depths of the loch. The nonhumans present kneel, and pray, declaring that this monster is the god of the lake, and that his return at the beginning of the year signifies great upheaval to come.
All scientists are fascinated by this creature, relic of ancient times.

74+9=83 HIGH SUCESS
With Lazarus, you finally start filling the Council positions properly. You look into the nobles, distinguished scholars, engineers, scientists and warriors, and offer a seat to the one you think are the most capable, and loyal to you and your husband.
Of course your parents get a seat, as rulers of Ordamark.
+The represantative of the nobles has been chosen by you.
+The Merchants elected a representative.
+The People send a representative.
+The Non-Humans, after several discussions, 76 broken teeth, three broken arms, and one dead by head ripped off, have a representatives.
+The church of the Light have sent a bishop.
+The faith of the North Gods have sent a priest.
+The Black Moon have sent an iquisitor.
+An engineer, a Scholar and a scientist have been selected as advisors
+Your husband has chosen his most trusted generals as military advisors.

97+9=99 (capped) HIGH SUCESS
You ask the priests to continue converting the -nonhumans to the Gods of The North. After several days, they manage to get a following in the tribes, and even if the elders aren't really happy, after the priests explained the similarities between theirs rituals and the faith, a great number of young non-humans converted to the North Gods faith.

You Invite some centaurs "scholars" and warriors to the capital to learn more about their culture. You learns that they live in confederated tribes, which help regulate pastures for their cattle, and make them able to organise a common defence. they live of their sheep, cow, and strangely, they breed horses too. They have some orchard in oasis, but it's for spring and summers. they trade what they can't grow with the villages, or the sedentary inhabitants of the steppes. They admit that when winter is harsh they resort to banditry, but with their agreement with you, they hope they won't have to risk their tribes again. For the fights, from a young age, the entire male population is trained in long distance running and archery, both of which are necessary skills for survival on the steppes. By adulthood, these activities are second nature for the centaurs. They are more mobile than any other race, being able to travel forty miles per day with ease. Only the best breed of horse can keep up. You ask about their way of fighting, and you learn how they combine their speed and natural maneuverability with bows and flanking, really useful of the enemies is too slow to react.

You talk with the leaders of the churches, and you discuss with them, about your idea of broadening their to the educate the common people in basic skills, like reading, writing and basic arithmetic. You explain that knowledge will help people in their everyday life, and how it could help the future of the empire. They tell you that they could do that, as they already teach some basics. But they want to keep preaching their faiths, like they alway did. I they can keep doing that, they will accept. They alway did that, so you accept, and soon, the churches are teaching the child and their parents how to read, write, and do basic arithmetic, along with the teaching of faith.

In the city, you find an sorcerer, that can do just that, you pay him 1000 gold and he start working. After some time, he tall you that the Branch is indeed highly imbued with powerful magic, it's not something you could use, but it could be used as a way to show that the wood elf respect you. The exotic hair stick is not magical, the sorcerer can't find anything. But he tell you that ithas great value, it's the work of a master, worthy of royalty. He proposes to buy him 8000 gold.
>Sell it ?
