    You are preparing to deal with the demon threat. So far, you brought eleven faithful servants into your realm, giving them bodies of enchanted glass and divine fire, which grant them exceptional strength and endurance. You have also designed siege weapons to rain fiery wrath upon the demons. Hagran is currently creating them in his workshop.

    On the material plane, you had your followers create statues of glass for your servants to inhabit, should their assistance be needed.
    You also created the first lindorm from common reptiles, giving them the form of a serpent with forelimbs and promising them a greater form, that of a dragon or a sea serpent, once they mature. The lindorms are willing to protect humans and your followers treat them with respect. There should be no conflict between the two races.
    The lindorm do not breed true yet, their offspring will be the common reptiles they were created from. You will, however, bless every newborn lindorm with the same form you bestowed on the first generation.
    You have also considered giving them the ability to breath fire, but perhaps a weapon more easily usable underwater would be a better choice.

    You have made contact with The Serpent, which is magic itself, alive and sentient. It does not wish to interfere, however, as no event in this reality can affect it. You managed to learn the secret of chanelling magic easier and faster from it, increasing your power.
    You taught your followers of it, which increased the capabilities of your Art wielders and allowed many others to master the basics of Art. Lindorms in particular turned out to be adept at wielding magic.

    You control six islands now and have major influence on another seven. Other islands are still controlled by the Masters.

    You had your people prepare for an assault from the sea, building fortifications and retreats. You also sought out canditates for becoming paladins, protectors of your people. Their training is already taking place.

    You work to improve human society through your teachings. You promote the development of architecture and art, the design of a more civilised law system, spread the alphabet you designed. You put emphasis on sharing knowledge, rather than hoarding it to oneself.

    You had your islands mapped out. The six under your control include:
    Three medium-sized islands focused on agriculture, including the one where your religion came into being. Each is home to about a thousand people. The inhabitants are "average" humans.

    The home island of Zhuang's people, smaller than others, home to fifteen hundred, many of them living underground. It has mining facilities on it, providing stone and metal. Their farms barely allow them self-sufficiency, so they often trade metal crafts for food. Due to the recent events, mining has been halted, as many fear that servants of the Masters might find a way to enter the mines.

    Two islands inhabited by Ligish's kin, though not their homeland. These are large, but relatively uninhabited, home to three or four hundred people each. The islands are heavily forested and wood is their primary trade good. Ligish's people are also famous for their shipwrighting skills.

    You still need time to gather information about the other seven islands.

    The talented Art users are few and far between, and the others aren't nearly powerful enough to maintain such effects. Runic items could provide the answer, however.
    You begin researching the matter and soon find combinations of runes and other symbols capable of gathering ambient magical energy and using it in specific ways. When you perfect these, such items will channel magic for themselves the way mages do.

    >Let me come up with something first.

    You do gain more knowledge of the seven islands under your influence. Two of them are inhabited by the dwarves, though there is no mining industry on them. A small one is basically a single city, the one Ligish mentioned once. It used to administrate the area, now it's caught up in riots and anarchy. Three are focused on farming and the last one is the homeland of Ligish's people.

    You strengthen the quarantine and put siege engines in place. The golems begin bombarding the area, cleansing it with holy flame.

    The hivemind grows, but doesn't become any more comprehensible. You decide to revert the jellyfish to their natural state instead of destroying them. You make sure the hivemind ceases to exist.

    You bring the twins into existence. You explain their duties to them, all the time thanking... hm, yourself, you guess, for the fact that you don't have a humanoid form. Otherwise they'd prove far too distracting for you to get anything done in here.

    Depending on how easy it is to make airships (rune-magic to help them fly?), we might still be reliant on ocean-going ships to maintain links between the islands. As such, what measures can we take to protect these vessels against attack by the Masters or their minions?

    How specific can we get with the rune-magic? Is it effectively like a programming language for magic, or are there a limited number of runes with limited effects? Teaching our shipbuilders runes that'll make their vessels safer and less vulnerable to sinking, swamping, capsizing or whatever would be a good plan - they carve the runes into the keel, and their ship is protected henceforth.

    Likewise, runes carved into the hulls that'll ward off the Masters' mind-bending powers, if possible.

    So, we're bringing the archipelago pretty much entirely under our influence. Civilisation is advancing pretty quickly, which could lead to some degree of unrest and uncertainty, I think - unless people are coming to view it as being the start of a Golden Age, what with our protection and knowledge and stuff being spread far and wide.

    The downside about having a Golden Age is that there's almost always something that comes along to fuck it up. We need to be on guard against that.

    How deeply can we probe the Abyss? Because while we're doing pretty well at picking off those demons who come to the surface, I'm worried there might be something stronger and nastier and more dangerous growing in the depths.

    Your starting island is on the fringes of the archipelago, which allowed you to escape notice. The city-island is central to this part of the archipelago, the other ones surround it. Further islands are located southwards.

    The six islands you control could support as much as ten thousand people, with Shyla's blessings. The other seven - probably the same amount, though their current total population is around the six thousand mark.

    >Sorry, missed that.
    Runes aren't flexible, unfortunately. A specific set of symbols has a specific effect. It seems there are no general rules for this.
    Carving runes into vessels will work very well. It will fortify the materials and protect the crew. You ask the mages to begin enchanting the existing ships.

    You bring the patron of paladins into existence. Unfortunately, this happens in a spot occupied by the twins. He disapproves strongly, then quickly proceeds to learn about his duties.

    Is there any way of using the Art to create gateways, portals, or some kind of magical transit mechanism that non-mages can use? Like two arches on different islands, allowing people to walk from one to the other? Or is that kind of beyond our capacity at the moment?

    Also, I would very much recommend giving the Lindorms darkvision or equivalent, if we're going to try and secure the mines.

    We definitely need some way to increase trade between the islands. If not a fleet of airboats, then a way to build seaboats and protect/shield/hide them from the Masters.

    Proceed to introduce the the new god (TIME FOR A NAME GUYS) to the rest of the family, then point to the cosmic asshole that the Abyss is, then break the news that its going to be his job to defend the more sane places from it.

    Can we have our Art-users create magic mirrors, crystal balls or similar enchanted devices that allow people on different islands to communicate quickly and with ease? If that's beyond our reach, have Hagran whip up something similar, as fostering communication between the islands is a really good way to forge our burgeoning empire into a coherent whole.

    You take steps to protect your realm. The prime is a more worrying matter, as it seems they might be able to enter it as easily as your golems... Though perhaps they'd need to leave the quarantined area for that.
