    You decide to just start scaning the globe for the incident. In the meantime, you check up on Formless, Ius, and Ius' angels.

    Formless Is watching a group of drakfey who seem to be preparing for battle.

    Ius is invisibly stalking some human in a human village right now.

    And Ius' angels are all over the place, but none seem to be near any recent sites of violence.

    You're right. It's not traditional necromancy as I think of it, which is why I didn't think of it. But in this universe, this is true.

    However, Ur was doing nothing. And Ur is our first necromancer.

    It's only been 15 days or so since creation. They haven't even created language, or given names to themselves. How would they have learned magic unless it's divinely inspired like with Ur?

    He's been watching the drakfey, it stand to reason he'd also notice nearby goings-on. He might've seen the necromancer killing the others to make zombies, and wondered whether the souls went to the afterlife.

    "I wanted to get the humans to attack the drakfey here, but they kept just running away. I tried to manipulate them into doing it, but manipulation isn't really my strong suit. So I told Picus I would owe him one if he would manipulate the humans into attacking the drakfey. He said he would tell one of his demons to handle it because it was "not requiring of his direct attention", cocky ass. Next thing I know the humans are fighting eachother, one of them breaks out necromancy, and now they are attacking like I wanted. Looks like something interesting is finally going to happen eh?"

    You know. I honestly don't think this deserves our attention. On the scheme of things, this isn't really doing anything particularly wrong to our sensibilities. All we care about is keeping the balance of the Gods in check, not keeping them from meddling with mortal affairs, no matter how tasteless it is.

    If we wanted to troll Formless, though . . . We could ask if he'd allow us to add something in that would give an extra flavor to the battle.

    If he accepts, we implant the idea of pacifism into the minds of the Drakfey.

    hmm... not as epic as the formless is generally looking for, but he's testing the boundaries of the forms of magic that are avaliable. Not in a subtle way, however. It seems that we could take a note from his book, and start guiding events more directly ourselves.

    Then again, It is against our watch and preserve portfolio. After this conflict resolves, I want to know what is happening with the fey by the Obsidian Tower, but their own hubris will have probably caused them to wander off again.

    I propose that yes, we stay and watch, but afterwards we have ourselves a talk with Formless and try to put a few ideas in his mind that rather than creating conflict for the sake of conflict alone, which is meaningless, he should consider setting some kind of end goal that the conflict is meant to achieve.

    We should also propose the idea that he wants to see the mortals advance to their maximum potential for the sake of epicness, while we desire much of the same end. We could possibly make Formless an unlikely ally of ours, using conflict to drive the mortals toward realizing their potential.

    After all, isn't it true that mortals fight harder and more fiercely when they have a cause to fight for? And isn't it true that it is usually during times of war when they advance the fastest, scientifically and technologically?

    While you find the actions of Formless to be poor form, you decide that it doesn't really warrant any kind of action from you. Still, you would rather him not do things like this all the time. If nothing else it will definitely escalate the conflict between Ius and Picus.

    "Formless" You say is a chastitory tone, "There are other challenges and struggles in a mortal's life that provide conflict and drama, ones that don't necessarily involve bloodshed. Continued battles will get stale, try being more imaginative."

    He doesn't respond before you set your sights elsewhere.

    Hm, a list of possible weaknesses for the drakfey:

    -They are weakened by deprivation of physical needs such as food and water.
    -Though they can regenerate from even mortal wounds, doing so requires time
    -Make them sterile
    -Make it so that killing any individual drakfey, also causes every single one of its descendants to die immediately.

    One or all of these, along with other weaknesses, must be added here.

    Also, we've discussed getting Ius over here to help sort this out. But how about Picus? He seems to understand that adversity is necessary to prevent imbalance, and he clearly has no great love for the drakfey since they're ripoffs of his dragons. We could consider getting him to back us up. I mean, even the dragons aren't as literally unkillable as the drakfey are at this moment.

    There should be no need to call in a favor. Formless is very clearly out of line. All four gods will have a problem with the drakfey. Hell, even the dragons are killable.

    I'm mostly on /co/ but that board seems fine right now.
    I just happened to want to check out other boards two days ago and happened to see the first thread of Deity Quest. Of course I had to come back.

    rolled 17 = 17


    It's already been archived.

    Thanks again, Apotheos!

    Yes, however, rolling 100 that way is MORE unlikely. You don't get anything from it. All you get is a big chance of revealing your cheating, along with worse odds of getting what you want.

    rolled 23 = 23


    Yeah, nokoing your rolls is only cheating when lower numbers are better.

    rolled 95 = 95

    *sigh* Looks like I came back a tad too late. Oh well, nothing happened that I would've voted against, so it's cool.

    To what purpose do we need to still be here? The DM's gone, no? What's left?

    To keep this thread alive?

    rolled 99 = 99

    But what's the point of keeping it alive? It's not as if the quest with start here again. When the quest again starts, it will be in a new thread for the new part.

    Why not?

    Mostly because it's keeping a thread in which no interesting discussion is occurring on the front page. It's a bit impolite, though nothing that most people will be terribly upset about. Beyond that, it's wasting time which you could be spending doing something you actually enjoy. I assume, of course, that you don't enjoy bumping random threads in which nothing interesting is happening. I could be wrong, of course - random bumping could be your hobby. Make sense?
