Part 6 – Session 1The Astral Plane is a place of dull, hazy light, infinite space, and unchanging nature. Naught grows here, little lives here, and the artifacts of mind and spirit are scattered across its expanse. But there are some features which are ever-present, even omnipresent. The Curtains of Color, which are the boundaries of the physical realms which may be reached through the Astral. The Astral Fundament itself, ectoplasmic and ephemeral, the soft silver glow of the Astral Plane.The Dead Gods.Here are the bones, the blood, the petrifying flesh, and perhaps the presence of ancient beings of nigh infinite power, laid low through means unknown and perhaps even unknowable. The Dead Gods are nothing more or less than their names suggest, and yet there is power here, secrets to be learned, mysteries to be studied. Here an ancient wyrm lives, a creature of alien intellect and of vast power. Here a mysterious living void, a tiny blot of umbral darkness hunts, haunts, a thing like a living Sphere of Annihilation that may be a guardian, or may be confined to this place. Here the Blood of the Dead Gods has been spilled or poured, strange liquors and odd ichors flowing and pulsing, carrying unknown power. Alien geometries are the norm his, and in this place there is light and shadow in abundance, and all that can lie between.Or beyond.The Astral is a place devoid of life, save the very strange life that has taken root and wrests existence away from the infinite grey of the plane. What life that may be native is alien in every conceivable manner. Time does not pass here: there is no hunger nor thirst, no growth nor healing, and little change. Except in the Garden of the Dead Gods. Here, there is life and change in abundance. You do not know who planted the first stelae in this slightly concave platform with the hole in the center that leads to other places within the realm that is called the Dead Gods'. Nor do you know what seeds were planted, or how. But the beauty is real and inescapable. The patters in the stone are lined with deep grooves of what could be water, or could be something stranger and more potent. Or, it is possible, poisonous. But from this shining liquid emerge tendrils of life, green in the grey expanse of petrified God-Flesh, vines which bear flowers of violet and blue, of red and yellow. Strange flowers, but flowers nonetheless.
From the flower lined waterways emerge delicate trees, their trunks gnarled, twisted, yet healthy and whole. There are leaves bursting from branches spread wide and far, and sometimes even tall. Sometimes the trees bear strange fruit or delicate orchids; sometimes they bear merely leaves. Moss grows here, as does lichen, spreading among the stones in wide patches of soft green and delicate shades of blue and grey and green. There are sometimes statues present, other times they are hidden by vines and flowers. Other times they are simply gone, and another sprouts in another place, like strange fruiting bodies of the flesh of Dead Gods. There is sometimes a mist that passes overhead, and other times rain falls upon this place, impossible yet gentle and soothing. It spreads for miles.Aeuna is struck dumb by the sight, and you do not blame her at all. Even Yzia is momentarily lulled into reverence by the sight, though she has seen it many times. Of all the strange invective you use, never have you used anything of the garden for it. This place, if any place, is hallowed. Take Aeuna by the hand and lead her through the garden a bit. Take your leave of Yzia and Aeuna, let them get acquainted. Take Aeuna to see your place of contemplation. Take your place upon Yzia and let her move over the Garden. Write in?

>>951635>[x] Take Aeuna by the hand and lead her through the garden a bit.How save is it to use magic here? Or to even bring around?
>>951682Akko's previous experiences indicate it is relatively safe to use magic that doesn't try and effect the Dead gods themselves and doesn't catch the attentio of the dragon that lives here. Glimpse of Truth is a VERY bad idea, though Arcane Sight is simply overwhelmed. So as long as they aren't casting fireballs, throwing lightning, or blasting walls down, it's relatively safe.She's pretty sure. Mostly.

>>951711>doesn't catch the attentio of the dragon that lives hereOminous! Though, I guess it would be too much to hope for that a place as nice as this would be abandoned.
[X] Take Aeuna by the hand and lead her through the garden a bit.Land us near The Black Mirror, Yzia. I will take her on a walk, and you can get ready. You specifically don't include Aeuna in your thought-casting. How will I decide on if she would prefer a male or a female? Yzia asks, amusement filtering through her mental sending.You can't help but smile as she circles around to locate the Mirror. You do not get to choose that, I am afraid. But I think that your preference might make a difference. Can you alter your form more than once? She laughs softly in your mind, her liquid voice filled with wicked humor and images that would make Aeuna blush to the point of unconsciousness. I gather you spent your time resting wisely! You have to admit some of those images are alluring, even intriguing. You've never really considered playing opposite Yzia in quite those manners before!The Black Mirror is easily located, mostly because of the pool it stands behind. The pool is filled with roots or branches, and strange things live among those black, half-rotted plants. Reptilian fish, or serpentine eels, or perhaps piscine snakes. Colorful, and vicious, and venomous. They hunt each other, their colors as varied as those of dragons themselves. The pool is deep, deeper than you dare test. A low retaining wall protects the pure....well, waters is as good a word as any. It isn't Gods' Blood, that you do know. The Mirror itself is the same size as the pool – almost twice your height, and the edge is chipped away. It is a single solid piece of hematite, polished to mirror-like perfection. And like many things here it is alien in several ways. The most obvious one is the least important.
>>951824Yzia lands upon the walkways leading to the thorny briars that circumscribe The Black Mirror and its attendant pond; the entryway to that place is clear, as are the dull stone benches that circle the pool. Assisting (somewhat unnecessarily) Aeuna down allows you a magnificent view of her derriere, though the batting and chain she wears hides much in shadow. She alights easily, but you retain her hand and gently lead her towards the Mirror.Awe-struck, she looks around, trying to take in everything she can. “That is not a good idea. Slow your pace. Look at what is nearby only. You might see more than you bargained for, and Yzia would be upset with me if you became ill.”Indeed. I would be quite put out with you, and I am sure I could think of some way to punish you that would actually be punishment rather than playful. The accompanying image of your last spanking cause your cheeks to color, especially since Aeuna is also blushing. “Over-sharing!” you accuse, and her liquid, beautiful laughter resounds in your mind as she settles in place, watching you and Aeuna enter the Mirror's home. Aeuna allows you to lead her into the area just in front of the pond, and she marvels at the strange creatures within and then at the Mirror itself. “You will have to excuse Yzia. She believes she is amusing.” You cast a flat glance back at the dragon, though you can't keep your own amusement from your thoughts to her. You do not share those with Aeuna.Aeuna is looking deep into the Black Mirror, the silvery-black material almost liquid. You join her in studying it, wondering if she will realize what is wrong with the reflection the Mirror shows. Or rather, the ones it does not show. Let her figure it out on her own. Give her a moment then reveal the secret. Allow Yzia to reveal the secret, in her inimitable way. Draw her attention back to the pool, and the briars, see if that helps her. Write in?

[x] Let her figure it out on her own.[X] Give her a moment then reveal the secret.[x] Allow Yzia to reveal the secret, in her inimitable way.[X] Draw her attention back to the pool, and the briars, see if that helps her.[X] Write in? Only give her what help is absolutely necessary, if she needs it.The walkway that surrounds the pool is narrow, and the benches are just off of it. Dark grass edges the walkway, one of the few places it can grow freely, and spreads out to the thick briars around the Mirror-Pool. You gaze at the Mirror, careful not to study the center too long, and then slowly walk around the pool, looking into the strangely murky water. 'Strangely murky' because despite the algae and roots or branches, you can see much deeper into it than should be possible. You crouch next to the pool and glance at Aeuna with a sly smile. “Something bothering you?” You look at the Mirror and study the benches and plants on the other side of the pool from yourself, then at the stele and trees behind where Aeuna stands. You look at Aeuna and then Yzia, and then the Mirror, studying the astral formlessness through it, as well as the garden it reflects so well. “I don't know,” she admits readily enough, and you nod, looking down at the cerulean and silver dragon-fish-snake that slithers towards you. A crimson and black one attacks it, kills it, devours parts of it before fleeing a swarm of much tinier blues and greens. “It has a presence, a power....”“I have used it as a scrying focus. It is amazing powerful as such; it gives sight and sound alike, and if you have a more powerful scrying spell, you can do much through it that you cannot through an ordinary scrying mirror. But the Black Mirror is more than that, it is true.” You walk around and place your hand carefully along the chipped edge. “A powerful summoner told me that it can be used to forge links with the eidolon, or potent vestiges. Or even phantoms of a stranger sort – the Shadow that Abides, or even entire Strongholds.”
You slide your hand along the warm surface. It seems to breathe, to pulsate like a living thing, though it doesn't move or shift at all. Sparing a glance for Yzia, you're rather surprised to has taken the form of a svelte and alluring githyanki female. You watch her approaching Aeuna, and glance back at the Mirror. Strange and potent indeed.“It is beautiful, but there is something wrong.” You nod in agreement and walk back around, passing in front of Aeuna, who steps aside to look at the mirror. Though that doesn't quite seem to break the spell the mirror has on her attention. With a smile you watch the creatures in the pool prey upon each other.“Yes. It took me a while as well. It is a strange, simple thing. You will likely feel as I did when Yzia pointed it out to me.” The lovely gish looks at you curiously, and you look back at her with a carefully neutral expression. She frowns at you, annoyed, and Yzia walks up behind her in silence, dressed in jewels and nothing more. Bare between her legs as well, which you find amusing after she teased you about your habit of forcing slaves to perform that service for you.Aeuna leans forward a little, as if the few inches will let her pierce the strange mystery that the Black Mirror possesses, while Yzia waits for a moment more. She grins wickedly at you and you blatantly ignore her, in favor of one of the strange creatures, a green and black one that is birthing a dozen of her own kind, only to turn and devour them. Finally Yzia slides her arms about Aeuna's waist and you look up at them. With a gasp Aeuna stiffens and clutches at Yzia's arms. “I didn't see you-” She blinks and you grin. She stares at the Black Mirror, and then turns to look at Yzia. “I can't see you! Or myself!” Yzia smiles and nuzzles along the back of the young githyanki's ear, and makes her blush despite the shock of discovery. Rising, you walk back to your dragon and her prey, and look in the mirror at the stele behind you, the flowers adorning it, the statuette that resides in front of the stele. You wonder what god it represented – if it represented one at at all. To do so means looking right through yourself, but since you – and no living animal you have ever seen – aren't reflected in the Black Mirror, it isn't really a problem. “There is no explanation. Living animals are all that it will not reflect. I have not tried spells, but most of those that would be best for it attract attention.”
Aeuna is looking a little discomfited, but doesn't protest as Yzia kisses along the side of her neck, her hands sliding to cup Aeuna's full breasts from behind. “I will reflect a corpse, or a dead animal, but not if those things are held by a living person or animal. A useless but amusing power that has no reason or explanation.” She purrs and Aeuna shivers as you watch. Disagree mildly – you have a suspicion. Agree mildly – it does seem pointless.

How's it going XS, feeling better than before the weekend?
>>951897So are we letting Yzia have first go, or do we join in and help her out whether ahe needs it or not?
>>951935You're telling me. That's a statement, not an exclamation.>>951931No. This type of thing is less turmoil and happiness to write. Also, only 2 ours of sleep after a 16 hour day, and I've been up since noon with 3 hours of work to go.
>>951939That sounds...taxing. Well, if questing distracts from it then we certainly won't complain!
[X] Disagree mildly – you have a suspicion. Agree mildly – it does seem pointless.[x] Watch Yzia discomfit the poor woman more.[x] Cast Glitterdust at them to see if the Mirror does reflect magic.[X] Write in? Yzia does know how to make someone feel desired....you're almost jealous. Almost.Yzia slides her hands up slowly, and then runs only her fingers down the shimmering crystal mail, making Aeuna shiver lightly as those fingers manage – and you have no idea how she does it, only that she does it every single time – to slide over her nipples through the leather and padding beneath that mail. Aeuna is breathing heavily and you turn your attention away from her towards the Mirror. If she actually wanted Yzia to stop, she would say something. She's not stupid in that manner at all.“I suspect you are wrong, Yzia,” you murmur softly. Turning, you walk past the dragon who is looking at you with her burning, shifting, magma-colored eyes. Her look of irritation is priceless. “I am beginning to believe the Black Mirror will reflect things not from a material plane. Life, but not as we know it, my love.” You cast the spell in the usual manner, calmly casually, firm voice and exacting gestures. Glittering motes explode into existence around the two women....woman and dragon, and stick to their skins, leaving them gleaming and brilliant.For all of a few seconds, before the motes, like the people themselves, vanish in the Mirror's reflection. Though the spell itself was visible until it collected on the people. More credence to your theory. “Conjured magic that is visible in the mirror vanishes wen it applies itself to your bodies.” Aeuna looks at her arms and breasts, seeing the motes of golden light that yove scattered across both of their bodies – Yzia looks like she isn't sure if she should be offended or amused. “Though it does accent your figures very nicely,” you comment, That mollifies her quit a bit and she looks at you thoughtfully, even as her hands wander below the heavy belt that Aeuna wears to lightly press at the place between her legs. Aeuna stifles a soft noise with one heavy glove, looking at you as you look up at Yzia. The fact that you are taking her molestation in stride forces her to accept it or face questions or curiosity from you, so she leans into Yzia, who giggles wickedly.
“Bzeaie was fixated on how it could be used to call those entities without true shape or form, and grant it....what if it reflects those instead of the living? It would be difficult to prove of course....” You rise and walk over to Aeuna and Yzia, and gently take Yzia's hands from the woman's crux, and kiss both palms, which seems to distress Aeuna even more than being molested by them distressed her. You look her in the eyes and slowly trace glyphs on the softness of those githyanki hands that are too warm, too potent to be truly githyanki. That you use your tongue apparently suggests all manner of wicked uses for the same movements to Aeuna. Yzia shudders and presses herself even more firmly against Aeuna. She knows all those wicked movements from personal experience. Her reaction seems to incite a new expression from the soft, warm githyanki in your draconic companion's arms; curiosity, for Aeuna is looking back at the dragon-githyanki's closed eyes and ecstatic expression with interest and surprise.Lowering Yzia's arms to Aeuna's waist, you caress her cheek and smile, walking around them to leave the Black Mirror and its mysterious pool. You feel the kiss that Aeuna lightly favors Yzia with through Yzia's mental contact, and shiver delicately at the inexperienced woman's favor. A soft, brief kiss, but a start nonetheless.You hear them follow you as you walk over to some of the stelae, where an image of a deity sits, a long dead deity, from a far off material. Caressing the statuette of polished volcanic glass lightly, you look up at Aeuna, noting as you do so that her and Yzia's hands are linked, fingers laced together. Yzia's thumb rubs the side of Aeuna's wrist lightly, suggestively, though the gish seems quite overwhelmed at the act itself. Her nervousness translates to a worried, unhappy expression. Politely ignore the expression. Remind her that all she has to do say something to end it. Ask if you may borrow her other hand to show her something. Don't ask, just do it. It's only a momentary pain, and the results are exquisite. Write in?

>>951943>[x] Remind her that all she has to do say something to end it.>[x] Ask if you may borrow her other hand to show her something.Even if we're Gith, we gotta make sure it's fun for her too! Of course, 'fun' doesn't necessarily mean 'painless'. Gith, after all.
>>951943> Remind her that all she has to do say something to end it.> Ask if you may borrow her other hand to show her something.>Get dressed for the occasion. Gently ask you wonderful Lady for something that will entice Aeuna, but not overwhelm her until the moment you wish so.>Offer Aeuna and Yzia to have the dragon teach the Gith how to tease your body. Maybe molesting you will spark her desire to new height. And it'll be fun when Yzia will go back to her.
>>951963I will point out you are in dragon territory, and it isn't Yzia's. The second part is fine, but you may want to rethink the first part unless you trust in your bracers to protect you as well as your armor does outside the Stronghold.
>>951975While risk has its own thrill of reward, I feel like we really don't need to invite any more of it in this placeReally, it's a pretty high level place for stuff like this, hopefully Aeuna will be fine as a novice.
>>951953Teaching Aeuna all kinds of things is definitely going to be fun for all involved, especially since we earned it so well in the duel.
Work got busy, but the update is on it's way immediately..

[X] Remind her that all she has to do say something to end it.[XX] Ask if you may borrow her other hand to show her something.[X] Write in? If you are so worried, perhaps you would like a little more control....Your not sure you've ever seen a githyanki so troubled by something as gentle and warming as hand-holding. Well, you have, honestly, but most of them were even more vigilant of their freedoms than the average. Still it is amusing to see how discomfited she is by holding hands with a naked, unarmed, bejeweled githyanki. Certainly Yzia is a dragon, but still. Okay, so perhaps you'd be nervous as well in her peculiar situation. You offer your hand to Aeuna and her eyes widen just a little more, the rich earth tones of her eyes warm and inviting despite her concerns. You relax and Siobhan hums softly inside your mind. “All you must do is tell her to cease. Dragon she may be, but she is still gith-yanh-keie. Your freedom to choose, your....individual want....is still precious to her as it is to me.” She blinks at your offered hand and then looks at you. Really, it isn't entirely your fault, the wicked smile that creeps along your lips, baring the tip of one spur ever so little. Siobhan's soft, wicked whispers of delights and slightly malicious amusement, the images she shows you of past exploits and as yet unfulfilled desires are potent and heady, and you sincerely doubt anyone could entirely resist them. “But I would be a liar to say that our desires and needs are also the results of our choices, and those too are precious.”The momentary flash of concern is adorable. You have already proven she is no match for you, much less for Yzia, and she is here alone with the two of you, fully armed and still flush with power. And yet....she takes your offered hand, and watches as you gently remove her glove, place between belt and armor for safekeeping. Taking her hand you bring it to your mouth and slowly kiss her knuckles, the soft, delicate places between. Her hands are as rough and as calloused as yours, yet she shivers as you slip your tongue lightly between her pointer and index fingers, caress the delicate webbing between them in a manner more like that you would apply to the place between her legs.Aeuna shivers and leans into Yzia; the dragon responds immediately, tilting her chin up, taking a slow, gentle, and very deep kiss from those gloriously soft, full lips. Your tongue slips along her finger and you kiss her fingertips, one by one, only to turn her hand palm up and deliver an intimate kiss to the center-point of her hand. She makes a tiny noise of shock and her knees buckle just a little. Just enough.
“May I cut you, and show you a wonder, lady of my companion?” Yzia's eyes brighten, her cross-star pupils widening and her smile ecstatic. She almost wriggles like a feral playing with a piece of meat, or a dragon-whelp with her first piece of true gold. “Nothing to fear, no concern to be had.” Aeuna stares at you for a moment and then nods, once. Yzia has seen this trick, but she slides around behind her new toy, and caresses her extended arm and cups one breast, purring with great enthusiasm. Aeuna seems reassured, rather than worried by the dragon's affection, undoubtedly trusting Yzia to protect her from you. Siobhan's melodious laughter is infectious but you resist the urge. With great effort.Gently you take her hand and place it over the obsidian statuette, and then slowly go to your knees, and look up at her, your eyes filled with evil delight. It takes a moment to spread her fingers, and then you lower your hands to your leggings, and look up at her as Yzia breathes heat along her ear, whispers delightful words for her to listen to. You open your mouth, hiding your spurs, and slowly take her middle finger into the wet heat, suckling slowly, tongue sliding around, playing....fellating her finger with slow, deliberate intent as she watches you, making a soft keening noise in her throat.Gently you pull away, bu when she starts to lower her and you take the tip into your lips, licking the underside of her short nail and the very tip of her finger. You tilt your head, and pinch the tip of her finger in between your teeth, and bite firmly, holding her fingertip. She tenses....and then slowly relaxes, while Yzia's shivers and rubs up against her armored body with her naked one. You wait, looking up at her. When she nods finally, you bite, and she flinches, but keeps her hand in place, the bitter-shock of her blood flooding your mouth. Gazing up at her as her wounded finger spills glittering sapphires over the strange obsidian sculpture, you murmur softly to her. “You have wonderful, vast opportunities before you. I wish to share many things with you, Aeuna. Some will bring pain but even in pain....there can be....” You gesture around you as slender blue-green vines sprout from the pedestal of the Shadow That Lives, the buts at the tips unfurling into flowers bearing the color and sheen of rich velvet, tipped in glittering blue gems, the leaves unfurling and writhing slightly in a nonexistent breeze. “....Wonders.”
She stares at the flowers her pain and blood has birthed, a tiny bit of life in a lifeless, dead plane of grey. Yzia giggles softly, and turns the young female's head for a kiss, as you lick her wounded fingertip, tasting her acidic blood once again, just for the pleasure of doing so.  Let Yzia have her chance to seduce Aeuna on her own for now. There is time. Help Yzia seduce Aeuna if she will let you. It promises to be fun.

[X] Help Yzia seduce Aeuna if she will let you. It promises to be fun.[X] Write in? Alternate your efforts with your companion as you help, suggest safer places perhaps. And kisses. Always, kisses.You rise slowly as Yzia intensifies the kiss with the lovely, soft young (relatively speaking) githyanki. She is much more filled out and shapely than most of your kind; even you have that tall, lean look despite your efforts and the vagaries of genetics. Yzia finally lets the poor female breathe and Aeuna staggers back a little, while Yzia giggles menacingly.Wrapping your arms around Aeuna's waist, you turn her away from Yzia slightly, and the dragon's eyes sparkle vibrantly with playfulness. “And what, pray tell, are you up to?” she asks with sincere sounding menace and good natured amusement.“Taking what is rightfully mine,” you reply, watching her eyes flash – literally lighting up from within – with greed and lust. Reaching out you gently cup Yzia's chin, and she relaxes, leaning forward as you draw her to you. Even as you pull Aeuna close you kiss Yzia, deep and slow, savoring her heat and desire like the fine wine or the rich brandies you have sampled from many raids. At the same time you grind your hips along Aeuna's bottom, making her whimper softly as her firm, rounded derriere rubs against your crux with your slight, practiced movements.I hope you do not mind if I assist. You will most certainly have her first but I think I may enjoy assisting this time. If only to excite her even further. Yzia's shocked amusement is almost insulting. I prefer experience, Yzia. I am not above teaching the inexperienced! That only makes Siobhan give the impression of snorting derisively, which is an interesting thing for a sword to try and project without experience of that sort. I would welcome the assistance and appreciate the efforts, my flighty companion in love and war, Yzia murmurs into your mind. She releases you from the kiss, and you pulls back slowly, eyes closed as you savor the heady rush. Aeuna turns in your arm, which prompts you to open your eyes. Her expression is thoughtful and sincere, and you smile reassuringly. She leans close, slowly parting her lips a bit, and offers you this kiss.
Touched in a way you are surprised to be capable of feeling after all these centuries, you lean forward and meet her for the kiss. She is unpracticed, and a little hesitant, but she is generous with her kiss, sliding her arms around you and holding you close. You tend to forget that she is taller; not Tzanzi's height to be sure, but tall enough that you have t lean your head back to receive the kiss. She learns quickly from you, the kiss becoming less sloppy, more intimate, more intense. When she finally breaks the kiss, you find yourself a little breathless, and she is blushing, your expression clearly making her happy to have been such a success at the intimacy she offered.“I think we should take you somewhere more safe, rather than remain here, as beautiful and wondrous as this place is,” you suggest softly. “I am certain Yzia would love to make you one of her treasures, if only for a short while,” you tease, though it more Yzia you tease than it is Aeuna. “I would like to take her to see the Gods' Bloods,” Yzia murmurs and you give her a somewhat surprised look. “I think she will find it educational.” There is a look in those strange, glowing, cascading eyes that yo don't quite trust. You do trust yzia with your life, you safety, and your secrets....but that doesn't necessarily mean you trust her not to play games. Yur entire relationship developed from them and with them. It isn't like you haven't done similar things to her, whatever she may be planning. “If it is as beautiful and wondrous as your kisses and your caresses, then I will happily company you both,” Aeuna declares in a somewhat formal tone, which makes yo smile, and quite nearly laugh. That would ruin so much of your good work here.“I think that may depend,” you start, but you can see the set in Yzia's cocked head and the way she is looking at you. It might be a bit soon to start another fight for dominance....….maybe.>To Be Continued....
>>952194Aww, such a tease!Thanks for running.
Thank you for reading and playing. Part 6 Session 2 should start this evening around 11:30 pm PST. Maybe earlier, if I can help it.
>>952197Thanks for writing XS, great fun!So Akko is safe from Yzia's whims, is Aeuna? I guess if she's seen as part of a hoard, she should be.Do Akko and Yzia fight games of dominance often?
>>952194Thanks for running, looking forward to the next session.
Thanks for running!We could let Aeuna gather skills by fucking with Yzia for a few hours, then once she's well--fucked, make her use what she learned with us
>>952213Only one flaw in your plan anon, I'm pretty sure a few hours with Yzia will leave her in no condition to perform no matter what skills she might have picked up on the way. Even Gith constitution must surely be taxed after hours with a greedy dragon.Actually that is kinda funny that Yzia is the one wanting virgins, when the greedy aspect would kinda lend itself to wanting a skilled hand and tongue bringing you great pleasures.
>>952206Rarely, truth be told. It's more the spirit of the thing, rather than any real dominance. Yzia is a dragon, Akko is not, 'nuff said.
>>952229I figured, they'd have to be games. I'd imagine they would be mostly for Yzia's amusement if anyrhing.
>>952237Remember, Yzia is a third again as strong as Akko, and much, much tougher. It isn't a tickle fight.
>>952303Well as long as it wasn't serious, she might take it easy right? I mean, not easy enough to risk losing and it'd probably hurt, but still.
>>952303Thank you so much for running, it really brightened my night.
>>952557You're welcome. >>952318That's a lovely thought. You'll get to test it if you like!
>>952577Well, maybe I do like!Probably not yet though.
Part 6 – Session 2One of the more interesting things about being Yzia's companion is that she is fairly interested in the choices you make and the things you do. Often she will go along with many of your decisions merely to see how they turn out. What demands she does make on your time tend to be of the more personal variety rather than those that might involve other dragons or githyanki. On the other hand, between the two of you trying to seduce the virgin Aeuna into bed, she seems to have become interested in showing Yzia one of the more unusual and dangerous locations among the Dead Gods, their blood. Which would be fine, if you didn't think she was planning something. Not necessarily something to do with the lovely and soft beauty that you are currently embracing either, which is what is making you hesitate.The Gods' Bloods s a chamber where the Dead Gods' blood gathers, and the blood of a Dead god is not without a potency and danger all its own. Death becomes a strange thing when you are dealing with deities. While you would rather return to the Stronghold and entertain Aeuna there, Yzia has suggested quite firmly that the Gods Bloods' is where she would like to take Aeuna. Realistically you have the time for both, but the Dead Gods are a dangerous place, and lovemaking here would be exciting and potentially fatal if one of the stranger denizens of this place happened along. You slide your hands and cup Aeuna's firm, soft derriere, digging your gauntlets into the softness and making her cheeks darken, as you look at Yzia, who has her head tilted and is looking at you like you are a very intriguing piece of flesh that she might like to devour. And not in the pleasant way. The fact that your blatantly sexual display hasn't distracted her is even more worrisome. It wouldn't be the first time you fought with her to determine the outcome of a decision, but if you want to win this one, you might have to reveal things you were keeping secret from Aeuna. Yzia has fought you to a standstill the last two times, forcing a compromise.... Why, Yzia, whatever are you planning to do? If you want us naked, you will have to take us elsewhere, sorry! Deliberately distract her by having Aeuna assist you in removing your armor. Acquiesce to her demand; it should not be terribly dangerous. Write in?
>>955311> Why, Yzia, whatever are you planning to do?> Acquiesce to her demand; it should not be terribly dangerous.Don't push it if she doesn't give a straight answer
>>955311>[x] Why, Yzia, whatever are you planning to do?>[x] Acquiesce to her demand; it should not be terribly dangerous.>You understand, of course, that this promises to be less relaxing of an experience? Is starting here and going there after unreasonable?
>>955311> Why, Yzia, whatever are you planning to do?> Acquiesce to her demand; it should not be terribly dangerous.
>>955311>>955375Also, whoops, didn't mean to interrupt, I'll delete the post and repost at the end.
>>955311 Deliberately distract her by having Aeuna assist you in removing your armor. Why, Yzia, whatever are you planning to do?> She probably wants to show her something else that will...broaden her horizons. While this might be interesting, be prepared to catch Aeuna figuratively if something potentially fatal could occur.
>>955311> Acquiesce to her demand; it should not be terribly dangerous.> Why, Yzia, whatever are you planning to do?
[X] Why, Yzia, whatever are you planning to do?[X] Acquiesce to her demand; it should not be terribly dangerous.[X] Write in? We will have to be more careful and remain prepared for danger, my love....I'd hate to lose something precious and delicate!You return Yzia's contemplative gaze with a smile and slide your hands down the soft curves of the magnificent derriere that Aeuna possesses to her hips and then up to her waist. A fleshed out body is difficult for the githyanki to achieve in the first place, much less maintain; Aeuna has sacrificed a lot of her time in the material and the results are actually very attractive. Though apparently not attractive enough to distract your draconic lover and friend at the moment. “I hope that you do not have some nefarious plan in mind, Yzia,” you murmur softly, pressing yourself to Aeuna as you slide your hands up to her mid-back. You favor your dragon, who at the moment is a lovely githyanki female and almost entirely nude save for her chains, with a coy look. “I would be reluctant to expose all this lovely skin to anything more dangerous than your lust.”Aeuna glances at Yzia, realizing something is going on, and wisely keeps quiet. You're mostly referring to hers, but your own skin is also fairly important, and if Yzia decides to push the matter you might have to step up. Yzia seems somewhat mollified that you are talking rather than refusing, however, which is a step in the right direction you suppose.“I think,” she says, moving up to press herself along Aeuna's back and pulling her hair to one side, “that it would be worth all of our whiles to visit that place.” She kisses the nape of Aeuna's neck and Aeuna sighs softly, tilting her head. Rising onto your toes you give the female's neck a slow, deliberate lick which makes her gasp softly, before you nuzzle lightly. “If you are so insistent, then I suppose I can accept that. It will delay our opportunity to delight Aeuna with my bare body, however, and I would not wish to expose her to the Blood of the Dead Gods or those that may also be interested.” You lean back and move your hands up her curved body to caress her breasts through the gleaming crystal chain mail. “I have great respect for your power but you are at something of a disadvantage here.”
“I'm certain that Yzia will take care of me,” she replies softly, looking at you and then arching her back as Yzia lightly bites her ear. “Ahn! Careful!” Yzia is quite happy with that response (and perhaps more so with yours) and her expression is once more playful and teasing. “If you wished for careful, you wouldn't have allowed Gero to pay you to assassinate my treasured Akko,” she comments, lacing her fingers with yours as you both clutch the softness of Aeuna's bosom. “But it will be safe enough for you. You will see things that no other githyanki has seen, save my Akko.” You kiss her over Aeuna's shoulder, and then you both kiss her cheeks before releasing the hapless female.The three of you rise, moving yourselves through the Astral fundament through will alone; Yzia takes the lead, more for the protection of Aeuna than any other reason. You follow and move slightly over Aeuna to further protect her. Not through any misguided notion of superior skill, which you proved you have in spades but because she is a member of your cadre and deserves your protection and support in all things.  Cast a few defensive spells as you go. Trust Yzia entirely, of course. Tease Aeuna a little more. Ask Yzia privately what she is intending and hope she tells you. Write in?
Serious internet issues on my end.
>>955548> Trust Yzia entirely, of course.> Ask Yzia privately what she is intending and hope she tells you.

>>955548>[x] Cast a few defensive spells as you go.>[x] Trust Yzia entirely, of course.>[x] Tease Aeuna a little more.
>>955562you do realize that "trust Yzia entirely" and "cast a few defensive spells" are mutually exclusive in that you you would be demonstrating a lack of trust in her ability to protect you and are afraid of her plotting something that might cause you harm, yes?
>>955586Oh uh, I was thinking of trusting her general plot but being cautious in case the senario turned due to something unexpected. Drop the spells, then.
>>955548> Trust Yzia entirely, of course.Be a weird time to betray us, and if she genuinely messes up, we can scold her for it later.
>>955548>[x] Tease Aeuna a little more.>[x] Ask Yzia privately what she is intending and hope she tells you.
[X] Trust Yzia entirely, of course.[x] Tease Aeuna a little more.While the dangers of the Gods' Bloods is more one of others being present than the blood itself, you are confident in your ability to rapidly place any extra protections you need if necessary. Yzia means well, and whatever she may be planning won't – or shouldn't – cause you any lasting harm. And she does protect her treasures very well. Aeuna is traveling in relative silence, and as you enter one of the cavernous openings into the midst of the petrified and crumbling byways and strange places where strangeness and oddity are the norm, you notice her gaze flitting from here to there, much as yours used to. You move around and beneath her, maintaining her as the center of your orientation so that you face her still when your half-orbit is complete, you look up at her as she glances down at you, the wildness in her eyes calming somewhat. She probably didn't even notice.You didn't either, which is why you needed a healer.The maze-like carvings in this shaft shimmer here and there with threads of the nurturing liquids that fed the garden. They glimmer with enough light to cast shadows here and you move closer to Aeuna, who watches you curiously....you look towards Yzia, and Aeuna follows your gaze. Except Yzia is flying directly before her, so what she sees is far more intimate than what another might see. You told Kteine and Schechei that the githyanki have no body shame, and for the most part that is true. However, you and Yzia have been teasing and playing with Aeuna for most of an hour or two, in many ways, and the view she sees is tainted by those experiences. You move closer still, and speak softly, knowing full well that Yzia can hear you clearly. “She desires to be your first, you know.” The gentle eyes of the gish meet yours. “She was unsure if you wished to be with a male or a female.”She looks a little abashed and shakes her head, meaning to say something, but you interrupt. “I told her that the choice was not hers to make, and that you would decide when you were ready. I am enjoying your decision so far.” That makes her blush and Siobhan giggles wickedly. “But if you would prefer a male, you need merely tell Yzia.” You glance up at the rather lovely sight and Yzia does not look back at you. “Not that I am incapable, the spell is known to me as well, but I have not tried the transformation myself as of yet....but I am told that the endowments are reflective of the natural ones that would be possessed of the person were they formed naturally that way.”
“So she would be endowed in human form as if she were naturally male?” she asks curiously. “Yes.” You move a little closer, your breasts barely grazing hers. “I would point out that Yzia's body is nearly the same shapely form in every version she has come to me in, so I suspect she would be well endowed as a male.” Aeuna blushes and glances at Yzia again.Yzia doesn't even glance back. “You are one of the most well endowed females I have met, Akko, so I am certain you would be as....well endowed yourself.” Aeuna looks at you, her eyes going wide. You smile meaningfully, but the first tell-tale glitters in the tunnel tell you that you are nearly there.“Remember. Touch no liquids. Be wary. But you will still be able to enjoy this.” You move away, and also slow. Other liquids have joind the 'water' from the garden, other pipelines and cavers, with other patterning along their walls, open to this one. The patters change in this cavern, added to by the others, and the clear water is joined by thick red ooze, glowing green liquid, a strange pearlescent and milky fluid, what might be quicksilver, and a black glutinous liquid. Here and there strands of he liquid fall or peel away from the wall, forming streamers that move through the tunnel along wit you and your companions.“Like arteries or veins,” Aeuna murmurs, as Yzia moves closer to the both of you.“More correct than you realize,” agrees Yzia. There are flashes of light ahead, where the tunnel meets the Cauldron, and you move forward a little, taking the lead.When you enter the Pool of the dead Gods' Bloods, you come to a halt, and Yzia and Aeuna join you, Yzia moving up behind Aeuna and embracing her with a broad smile, enjoying her wonder. You have eyes only for the Pool yourself; it really isn't any wonder, either.
>>955634No wonder it's referred to as Blood if it all looks like veins.
The cavernous chamber has opening of a hundred sizes, each ringed by runes, patterns or decoration that means little as near as you can tell. From each comes liquids, liquids in as many colors and viscosities as there are worlds in the material. The liquids and substances pool in large spheres, reminiscent of the bathing area of the Stronghold. Unlike that place, the pools then send off tendrils and streams to other pools, the liquids clashing and combining in some cases, or remaining discrete and separate in others. It I from these that many of the flashes of light and sounds emerge as they clash or combine in some strange alchemists dream.But all of those pools release more streamers, until it reaches The Pool. The Pool is in the center of the chamber, a slowly whirling conglomeration of each and every type of liquid, whether pure from the source or combined and transformed in other spheres. In this one they do not combine further, instead remaining discrete yet connected, a mass of strange light, darkness, metals, gem-like liquors, or strange oozing substances. It is lit from within by a strange white radiance, and it causes the Atral fundamnet to seethe around it. Aeuna stares in wonder at the massive shimmering whirl of color and light. “Plurals, because it is plurals....” she whispers, recalling her confusion at your use of the plural of both God and Blood. Take her closer – there isn't anything else here aside from you. Stay at this safe distance for now. Let Yzia and Aeuna enjoy the sight while you look around. Take Aeuna closer to something pretty and safe. Write in?

[X] Take her closer – there isn't anything else here aside from you.“Carefully now,” you warn Aeuna as you move closer to the massive pool – actually it is much closer to a cauldron than a pool to be honest – of swirling, seething Gods' Bloods. You scan carefully but see nothing unusual or strange, and move closer, avoiding the shifting streamers of liquid as they pass through the fundament seeking to join that strange mixture. Yzia carries Aeuna closer, letting her watch the strange display of color and power flowing through the Astral substance.You move through the fundament slowly, rising to match Aeuna and Yzia as you do so. Turning, you float backwards a short distance to watch Yzia stroking, almost petting the lush female; your attention makes the gish' blush deepen further, and you smile. Yzia gently pushes Aeuna away from herself and you catch her by the hands, though she is the one who moves towards you of course; gravity here is subjective, not objective in any way. The psychic movement your people possess is another thing entirely. You slowly spin in place, and smile as Aeuna watches the globes and streamers of vibrant liquids move and shift. “This is wonderful,” she murmurs softly, and pulls you closer to her. “Thank you for this, Akko. You are generous beyond words.”“It is not as though I own any of this. I have found places – many of them – that are of equal or surpassing beauty. But this....” You brush your lips upon hers, and she kisses back softly. When you break the kiss, you continue. “This is a place that I take only those I dare trust.”AKKO! MOVE!The telepathic shout prompts action, and your first action is to look past Aeuna, who has not reacted to the warning at all. Wen you see no danger or threat, you push your hands into hers, so that some space is created between you. The design of your armor is made for flexibility, so it is no trouble to place your foot against her stomach. Alarmed, she tenses, and lets go of your hands. You look into those earth-toned eyes and see only trust and readiness.You push her away with your foot, and move away from her at speed; you turn as you do so, seeing nothing – no, there, a jet of silver-black liquid, not a streamer or splash but an actual directed jet from the side and to your zenith. It splashes across your armor and your arms, and instantly your head is filled with voices screaming and pleading, howling mindless noise and horrific chants and incantations alike. A Though Shield does more than stop those voices and howling thoughts; unlike the younger gish, yours is a potent, massive barrier that steels mind and body alike.
Looking down at the seething silver and black liquid you realize it is still moving, and the last thing you need is the stuff getting on your skin and face. You spin once in place, but the damn stuff refuses to be flung off; it clings like an ooze and starts insinuating itself though the chain mail and plate armor alike. You bite back the curse you would usually use, as the location your in makes that particular set of words a little less than wise. Siobhan growls menacingly, but the substance doesn't react at all.There is only one way to deal with this sort of issue, and it is never fun. You call upon the arcane force, and rather than channeling it long your aura or through you weapon, you ignite the power IN your aura! Immolate everything.. Electrocute yourself. Corrode the stuff. Freeze it. Use Mythic Power? YES or NO. Write in?
>>955674> Electrocute yourself.
>>955674> Immolate everything..> Use Mythic Power? YES Well shit this is pretty scary.
>>955674> Immolate everything..If this is what I think it is, its immune to electricity and acids, and resists cold. So yeah
>>955674>[x] Immolate everything..>[x] Use Mythic Power? NO.I'll defer to anon's expertise on this then
>>955674>>955677> Use Mythic Power? YESAdding this one just to be on the safe side, Oozes have way too much immunity variety.

>>955682It might not be from an evil deity, but it's almost certainly like an ooze.
>>955674> Immolate everything..> Use Mythic Power? YES
Guess there WAS something here aside from us after all.Turns out the voting options are unreliable. What a betrayal!
>>955674> Freeze it.> Use Mythic Power? NOI don't know, I'm a bit concerned that either Akko has never encountered these things before, or there's enough variety in their immunities that she doesn't automatically know the ideal element to use.

[X] Immolate everything.[X] Use Mythic Power? YES or NO.Generally speaking, your first experience with the blood of the Dead Gods was not particularly spiritual or pleasant. It involved a lot of throwing up (which, when you haven't had food in your belly in a few decades, is exceedingly unpleasant) and hallucinations. This stuff is worse – it is actively trying to get in contact with your skin.So you set fire to yourself.The arcane force in your aura isn't particularly volatile or unstable, but can be made so in a variety of ways. Your personal preferences are acidic and electrical, depending on what you are fighting. This stuff is too much like an actual ooze monster to be affected by either. It is not an immortal ichor – that hideous stuff is too dangerous to be allowed any freedom, even here, and if you had found any (or vice versa) you would have brought in a squad of gish and psychics and eradicated the damn stuff. The telepathic aspect is not so much an attack as it is a manifestation of the Dead God's existence. If it were a grey ooze you would have been under a much different mental assault. You gather the arcane force and infuse it into your aura. You see Aeuna moving close only to be grabbed by Yzia, who is watching in horrified fascination. Siobhan is desperately trying to protect you as you channel the power into your aura. Remembering the energy she gave you, you grab her and hold onto the hilt as you prepare to cause yourself immense pain. You even go so far as to dismantle one of your spells (just for irony's sake, Elemental Touch) to infuse the fires with potency above and beyond the normal arcana.Ruby flames erupt throughout your aura, and the blood seethes, burning away in white light. You screech, the pain intense and you have no need to be stoic or cool right now. The power of the Elders of Gith makes the flames that much more intense, if not hotter. The blood roils and turns to ashes that float away from you. You dip into your belt pouch and pull the shimmering vial of devil's blood with shaking hands. Turning the vial over onto the finger of your glove and paint the smear onto your chin. The relief as your skin slowly heals is soothing, and you look up and around, making use that nothing else is reaching for you or attacking you. Yzia and Aeuna move towards you, and you glare at Yzia, who smiles at you sweetly, though Aeuna looks concerned. “That would be why you do not touch the blood of a Dead God,” you comment mildly, brushing some errant char from your cheek.
“....what was that?” she asks softly. You give her a confused look, as you did just tell her. “No...that....that power!” Her eyes are wide and a little awestruck, and you suddenly realize what must have happened.Resisting the urge to glare at Yzia, you murmur softly, “I do not know.” The lie spills easily from your tonngue and you reach p and caress the worried githyanki's cheek. “It could only have been a potency in the blood reacting to my magics. It might be a momentary thing....or it could hae long lastign effects.” She nods slowly and you kiss her gently. “Come, let us return to the Stronghold. That may have attracted the attention of others....which I would like to avoid, Gish Aeuna.” A stern look is met with a faint smile and a slight nod. “I understand perfectly, Gish Akko. You may rely on my oath.”Yzia gives you a grin so smug you want to slap it off her face with Siobhan, who is cooing softly at you to try and get you to calm down. There will be words over this little scheme, and you're not entirely sure if you're amazed by her cleverness in it or going to beat her senseless for the stupidity of it....>To Be Continued....
>>955743Yzia is a bully!Thanks for running
Thank you for your patience, reading and playing.Apologies for the internet issues.Yzia's plan worked, apparently....you'll get an explanation soon.
>>955745Thanks for running. Seems like we fell right into that one.
>>955743Wait, did Yzia want to bait Akko into revealing her powers and see if Aeuna is okay with it?How sneaky!
>>955745Thanks for writing XS. Pity about the net troubles.Not sure Aeuna believed that deflection.
>>955743Yzia better have a damn good explanation for this.>>955745Thanks for running. Don't worry about the internet issues.
>>955751Yes, she did indeed. With the intent of Akko being able to reveal to those in her cadre her remarkable powers. Needless to say, Akko is not entirely pleased by this.
>>955772Hmm, doesn't seem entirely safe that.I mean, we're already in deep shit together with Falna&co so she probably won't say anything, and likewise I can't imagine Tzanzi would. But Aeuna and Yashi are not nearly so safe.
>>955797Oh, and good luck surviving your aunt!
>>955772Well, I still don't really think Yzia would sabotage us intentionally, but I'm not sure if there are any stakes for her beyond potentially losing the best partner/fuckbuddy she'll ever encounter.Also good luck with your aunt, and, since I'm not sure when you'lll be running next, I hope the holidays are bearable if nothing else.
https://sli.mg/a/3v3NuFAnyways, here's the link to the cuteness for XS. Some lewdness snuck in despite my best efforts.
>>956071"Snuck in" huh? In the very first image no less!Nice album anon.
>>956071Sneaky lewdness is the best lewdness.Unless it's guro, which is another matter entirely. No, there will be no guro in this quest. Mindrape, but no guro.>>955802Conservative people (and I am not speaking about politics) are difficult for me to deal with at best. She at least tolerates my lifestyle nowadays.
Mindrape is as horrible as guro, though.
I get the impression that one of Akko's enemies or rivals would find a pretext to give her a Succubus or a Marilith as a slave, because they know she finds demons spooky but would lose face if she showed it.Plus, they're lethal when mishandled
>>957050I dont know, a Marilith is kind of a big fucking deal. I don't think it's possible for a Githyanki to enslave a CR17 demon without getting put on the Lich Queen's watch list.A Succubus seems a bit more reasonable, but I'm not really sure if Outsiders make good slaves, since demons don't really have any reason not to kill themselves due to just reforming back in the Abyss.
>>957904You would be mostly correct except for one vital fact. Most outsiders caught in the astral aren't summoned or conjured - they're physically there, meaning they can be killed permanently. Which makes them all the harder to catch and keep of course.
>>958547Now, with the Gith, a succubus could actually be incredibly useful for someone aware of the Lich Queen's schemes. When you get near the required level, a kiss or some naughtiness solves your problems.
>>958807I don't know, there's gotta be easier ways of getting negative levels, like even a vampire would be more trustworthy.Also I can't imagine Githyanki society approves of cheating in that fashion.
>>959320Githyanki society cares about survival of the smarted and the most deadly. It's personal pride that usually gets in the way of such situations, rather than any idealized morals or ethos.
Hey look, dark haired lady in half-plate.
>>962615I can't help but laugh at the crotch-plate, even if the chainmail especially is quite nice.
>>962615Ironically, that kind of thing would be even more impractical than the "armored bikini" you often see.All the disadvantages of plate and of mail, worsened, with almost none of the advantages
>>962615Love that wing motif on the shoulders and helmet.
We need some more Gith and Planescape art in here. Were's that anon from before? I think they were posting stuff from Tony DiTerlizzi.
>>962615More half plater femme.
>>963702I just searched tumblr and deviantart for Githyanki, and saved the stuff I thought was okay, so... keep that in mind.
>>965954My reimagining doesn't help, and there isn't much good githyanki art to begin with, sadly.
I'm not really sure how crazy your schedule is around this time of year, but I assume it's pretty hectic.In any case, I hope any shifts you have are tolerable.
>>971494My schedule is fine. My brain chemistry and my depression are out of control this time of year. And others have family and loved ones to be with too.But thank you kindly.
>>971743Well wishes to you and I hope things become better for you as soon as they can.
I'm curious, has Akko ever ran into one of these? Somebody told me that they can be really dangerous and that they give absolutely zero fucks.
>>976788No she has not. She has, however, run into one of these. She ran like a little coward. she was much weaker then....now? Well, she might just have to see.
>>977179Okay, if we run into one of those, we definitely need to take trophies. Claws and teeth? Maybe the whole head. Turn the tail skin into a sash or belt, wear the hide as a tunic or cloak. Make a real fucking fashion statement.Actually, are there any honors for eliminating Demon or Devils, and the inverse as well, for taking out Angels or Archons?
>>977390There are honors and rewards for many things. There might be specific ones for those things, but it would be one that akko hasn't had experience with (i.e. she hasn't met anyone with such honors, but that doesn't mean they don't exist). On the other hand, she could create such an honor, once she verified that she had in fact killed such a creature at actual risk to life and limb. That is to say, if she killed an Astradaemon, she could claim an honor and make one representing that deed, and if she could get it approved by the Silver Swords and the Supreme Leader of the Stronghold, she could add it to her sashes officially and be recognized for it.
>>977405That'd be cool. Akko could begin a tradition among Gish of demon-hunting. Though, would this be a good thing or bad thing, considering we are trying to avoid the Lich Queen's attention?
>>977475Well, she kind of does need to go devil hunting - she has a limited amount of devil's blood to use for her Infernal Healing spells. She'd much rather collect some from the source than buy some from another githaynki.
Maybe I should go back to my PF books to remind myself what sexy she-devils there is.
