I am quite sorry that I am so late.It is neither fashionable nor acceptable when you have people waiting upon you after all!However, without further distraction,The Tale of Faefnir continues!Forged out of a once-baker's soul named Claire... A pitiful woman that had been strangled to death by a beggar for her creation of love.Called back by her since child-hood friend, Jacob, that had always looked upon Claire fondly, oh so fondly..Once I granted the dear her body, she killed the man out of spite for turning her into a delightful monster!And so now, she wears his skin and kills humans in secret to spread the despair that gave her this wonderful second life!She has also continued baking bread. <3Welcome to the quest of the Akuma, Good Evening... <3This is the story thus far!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Akuma%20QuestThese are your current stats and abilities as of now!http://pastebin.com/CuLptHELAnd Something pertaining to your allies! <3http://pastebin.com/49TZ3QUnAfter a successful, yet trying hunt that nearly resulted in the casualty of Madeleine, the Family has gained her as a new lv 2 Akuma!Yet with the advent of Baking and getting everything settled in after Schwere's most unfortunate injury.. Faefnir has been taken on the job!The anti-Akuma organization, known as the Red Cross Fou- I mean, Crimson Cross Covenant investigates the disappearance of one of their own that had happened just last night, resulting in an interrogation of our poor, poor hero.Upon approaching the topic of Temes' burning, they determined it necessary to detain any refugees that come out of their, on the basis that they are demons... Oh what have you done...Faefnir is imprisoned, yet he is oh so close to the witch.Morgan Le Fey.How will you get out of this one, dearest demon?
You resolve yourself, it's risky, however you see it as an opportunity.. If you could rally with the witch, you could save her and fulfill the mission that the good doctor had bestowed upon... That is... if she is indeed the Noah. However, you won't be going away quietly at all... No, you have to show them... your conviction... You stare at the man, despite his visor, you glare at him as angrily as a normal person would, as indeed, they would find this reprehensible."Do not tell me what I saw. I have eyes and I was there unlike everyone else in this room. I saw them with my own eyes.” You enunciate that clearly, looking over everyone and stopping back at the man, that's been questioning you,” I saw a man bearing a cross like yours, only silver, he came to my bakery once or twice and sampled my wares, and on the night of the fires he blew wind upon the flames and spread them far and wide. He did not seem to care a whit for any of us.I don't know what happened after that as I fled the city fearing him more than any demon."Everyone in the room goes silent for a moment...“Take him away.” The man finally gives the order, and the weaponless one at his side places a talisman upon the back of your head.“This is to keep you from doing anything funny before you're detained,” The man whispers into your ear.You suddenly feel a great deal weaker, as two guards on either side of you grab you by the arms and begin to take you away.“If... if you imprison me... I'll be ruined... My family has so little.. No job... And rumors of what we could have done.... We'll need... to move again... and the bandits on the road... our lives... forfeit... This.. this is a death sentence...” You mutter out half-sensedly.The mage-man is the only one to respond,” None of that is our problem until you are found human. I am... sorry. That it must be this way... This is for your own safety.”
It takes a bit of time to get down the winding stairs, however you are soon thrown into a cell with Talismans upon the angle-points of the bars, ensuring that you're sealed... unless the barrier is broken, of course.You look around you, at possible cell mates. You see a few other broken and likely impoverished people here... serves the scum rig- Ah, who are you kidding, you're here now to..You see that just across from you, still in mage's stocks, although mobile ones.The previously encountered, and twice enamored, once for potential Noah, and a second for loving your bread, Morgan Le Fey.
just in time Good Doctor, what shall we bake tonight?
>>25574185I have a glorious plan.First off, Are the people that are usually guarding her there?
>>25574185Are there any guard around good doctor?Can we take a look at Morgan's devil damned forehead?Maybe we could say hello to her.Trying to seduce her with bakery puns would be hilarious but slightly out of place.
>>25574236Forgot my name haha
Kill Humans, Bake Bread.>Akuma Quest, are you ready?
>>25574255TONIGHT, WE WILL BATHE IN BLOOD!
>>25574236no guards, but that silent exorcist in silver armor is guarding Morgan. And apparently never leaves her or sleeps from what I can tell...
.... our teeth can chew through Innocence based weapons. Paltry pieces of paper should prove no obstacle.
>>25574272>TONIGHT, WE WILL BAKE IN BLOOD!Fixed that for you
>>25574285that would require changing form which would give us away
>>25574305at this point, we are about to hit the panic button. But have no fear, for I have a plan.
>>25574305Pretty sure we can use our teeth in either form. We've flashed our killer smile a few times.
Let's hold off on going full on KILLDEATHMAIM for a bit. Let's inspect the cell a bit more, and try to communicate with Morgan. We don't want to fuck with the armored exorcist until we have a good idea of what we're dealing with.
>>25574305>>25574333>>25574334that's all fine and good, but I'm not doing anything til we're sure that exorcist won't just blast us in our cell as soon as we do something clearly not human
Examining your cell, you find that there is a bucket to relieve yourself and a washbasin filled with water.Your cell is separated from the others by Brick and Mortar, with iron bars at your front. There's no window here either, this is dug into the ground.An escape could only be accomplished by digging, or going out the front door.That is to say, if there weren't these damn talismans creating a barrier to reinforce the restraining power of your cell.With a touch to the talisman on the back of your head, it elicits a sharp jolt to your hand, causing your body to convulse with pain.It's an irritance as it drains your power...(strength stat is effectively lowered by 2. Faefnir currently has 0 strength. Subjected to normal human strength..)The Exorcist guard with the silver rose cross emblazoned upon his armor regards you at that. The other brother of the "Ashers" seems to be missing from the usual contingent.The man says nothing, and you can barely see his eyes through his visor pointed away from the light of the torch scones.His charge sits behind her bars, staring blankly at the wall as her stocks allow so little movement or comfort.You notice that her cell is warded by talismans as well.Well, this place is awfully boring... What shall you be doing?> Panic button, you need to get out of here.> Try to get Morgan's attention...>Holler at her.>Whistle>Run your bucket across the bars.> Wait quietly, let's see if this guard ever actually sleeps...> Heckle other prisoners> Speak to the Exorcist guard> (Other)
>>25574390oh, don't worry, I fully plan on it... and don't worry about the exorcist, that armor is going to become quite the burden...
Take the pain and remove the talisman?Or do we need more willpower for that?
>>25574412> Try to get Morgan's attention...“Hey. Hey Witch. I never got a thank you for that bread last night. I want you to look me in my eye and say ‘Thank you for the bread’. It was certainly a lot more than you deserved.”try to come off as we're really angry and taking it out on her.
>>25574434Removing the talisman will alert the exorcist.>>25574412>[x] Try to get Morgan's attention...Try to look at her forehead and talk to her.Ask her how did she get in that situation
>>25574412[X] Try to get Morgan's attention...-[X]WhistleSee if she won't show us her forehead. Hopefully we're not being to forward for this time period.
>>25574434not just yet, it will alert the exorcist that we aren't human. we first need to find out if Morgan is a noah or not.
>>25574412> Try to get Morgan's attention..."Glad to see the view is at least worth the trip, I trust my bread was to your liking <3"
>>25574415I was thinking about that earlier. We need to not only remember it, but consider leveling our gravity skill. >>25574412>Get Morgan's attention>Just talk. We don't make bread innuendos at potential Noah. Yet.
>>25574434It's possible to try to remove it... i'll say that.Also, there was a question the other night about the acquisition of the halberd.It's part of your "body" when you transform.So long as you have it when you revert to human form, you'll have it the next time you show your true self.
>>25574494can we eat or bread to restore some strength? can we even get to it in human form?
>>25574518Would require a partial transformation if you'd want to risk it. and it'd bring your effective strength back to 1.
>>25574535Let's not do that until we have that seal off. Something tells me that this knight is stronger than a bear.
After this we might need to up our disguise. If any of those men who saw us leave the city before we slaughter this town leave it we will need it.>>25574518if we want to up our strength now we could spend xp... as long as the char sheet is correct we DO have 400.
>>25574412>> Speak to the Exorcist guard>either before or after talking to Morgan"Glad to see the order keeps it's top men keeping an eye on the "dangerous criminals, or are you just here for the view?""
>>25574535Let's hold off on that. Once we hit the panic button we'll scarf a loaf of bread, and burn everything forever, but not until then.
>>25574412hm... correct me if I'm wrong, but if she is a recently awakened Noah, doesn't that mean that she has access to her Noah memories?
>>25574570in this case id prefer disguise, and something else with remaining exp
We could combine our poison and fire and make a poison gas to slowly kill everyone around us.
>>25574616>>25574494or go for disguise and either smoke magic, pressure cannon or Devil's luckalso Leadership is at lvl 1 but we upgrades last thread
>>25574616I doubt that would work, smoke would get instantly noticed by the guards.>>25574665We could upgrade devil's luck, after all it as saved our ass so many time
>>25574616That's an idea, but that will probably kill Morgan. If we get the chance, using our flames indoors could very possibly cook the exorcist in his armor. MAYBE.We still don't know his powers.Can exorcists sense us upgrading ourselves?
>>25574616smoke might do this better, we are underground and both us and the exorcist are locked in cells. if we fill the room with poison smoke we could simple take all the air and kill him
>>25574616i Have a better idea. since we have about 400 exp, let's use 200 to upgrade our pressure cannons so that they are pretty accurate at close range and 200 to upgrade Gravity magic. with that, after we talk to Morgan and right after we rip off our charm, we start spraying the exorcist with our blood oil, while weighing him down to make him sluggish. then we use our flames to light him up, hopefully cooking him inside his own armor.
>>25574730We know that his power is voice related and he cannot speak.>>25574734Everyone is going to panic at the first sign of smoke, as it indicate a fire.
>>25574730if morgan is noah then she won't be killed or hurt by dark matter powers, and i don't believe anyone can sense us upgrade or even that we are an akuma hence their paranoia of us
>>25574761wait, how do we know that his power is voice related?
>>25574734We shouldn't fill the room with smoke it would only hinder our vision. My reasoning is that the line "barely see his eyes through his visor pointed away from the light of the torch scones.: might mean that he's used to fighting blind.
>>25574778but is he used to fighting blind covered in blood oil, and breathing poison with every breath?
>>25574774I think the doctor told us.I do remember him saying that there was a reason he didn't talk when we met the guard.
>>25574734Guys we don't know what this Exorcist's innocence is. For all we know he could have something like the zombie parasite innocence or something else that makes him not need to breathe.
>>25574800which is why I suggest cooking him alive in his own armor.
>>25574751IF upgrades gravity would effect our blood oil then i can get behind this, then ignite a fireball with him as the focus and make a run for it. If Morgan is a noah then the fire won't kill her
>>25574826we wouldn't need to run for it, since he will have burned alive. at the temperatures I'm pretty sure we can produce, we can burn his lungs to crisps.
You whistle across the cells at the witch, attempting to get her attention, yet she doesn't look at you. You persist with a "Hey. Hey you." or two thrown in there. No response. Well, whatever, you can try again in a bit.You look over at the guard, smiling a bit sourly," Glad to see the order keeps its top men keeping an eye on the 'dangerous criminals, or are you just in here for the view?"The Asher stares at you intently through his visor for some moments before finally saying something, his voice rough and gnarled, echoing in his helm with a kind of mechanical twang. "If... you... are... a... demon... I... will... kill.. you... slowly... Limb.. by limb..." He looks away from you."Hey. and what if I'm not? What would you say if I'm not?" You chide on, like a mocking child.He says nothing more.Well, he's no longer fun. "Witch." You see her eyes roll toward you in the dark, full of scorn. Good, at least you've gotten her attention."I never got a thank you for that bread last night." You say cold, angrily. You'll need to put up some sort of act, right? "I want you to look me in my eye and say 'Thank you for the bread.' " You sneer at her, really laying it on," It was certainly a lot more than you deserved."The woman looks away from you, her face quivering. You begin to hear her sniffling, as though she's about to cry... Oh shit, you probably hurt her feelings...> Apologize to her, ask to see her forehead.> Keep on heckling her.> Talk to the guard like he's your best friend.> Try ripping the talisman off.> Pee oil into the bucket.> (Other)(I fixed the sheet and rewarded 60 exp for my mistake. THe proper exp amount was 40, not 440. )
>>25574821I think that may be an idea. If there is little room to dodge or navigate, a hot enough prolonged jet of fire would effectively start melting his armor and cook him inside. With the bar between us and him he will have a hard time to strike back.
>>25574821>>25574826flaming napalm: poisons, weights down, and cooks at the same time
>>25574851>>[x] Pee oil into the bucket.Might be useful later> Apologize to her, ask to see her forehead.But don't mention forehead. Say something along the lines. I am terribly sorry for hurting your feeling lady. I'd like to look at you in the eyes to give you my most sincere apologies. Please let me have this honor.
>>25574851>> Apologize to her, ask to see her forehead."Okay, okay, no need for that. Wasn't fair to take all this out on you anyway.">> Talk to the guard like he's your best friend."Must be nice getting this cushy job guarding the prisoners all day and night, but you and your brother seem like decent folk at least. So, you a bread guy? Whole wheat if i had to guess, good for the body"
>>25574851[x] apologize"Okay, okay I'm sorry. Once they realize I'm not a demon and release me I'll get you some more bread.
>>25574851Any other prisoners around, if not not might s well pee oil in the bucket, but do it away from the guard. Might as well get ready for the break out.
>>25574851CURSES!!! OUR PLAN IS RUINED!oh well, we can still just splatter oil all over him.okay, maybe we don't heckle her some more, but I can still use my plan with a few changes> Pee oil into the bucket.as we do that, make the following comment"Good god, it reeks down here. I doubt all the water from Noah's flood could wash the smell out of this place."hopefully, if she is a newly awakened Noah, that should elicit some kind of a reaction from her. YAY NOAH MEMORY!
>>25574851>>25574494I've got an idea, we can conjure fire outside of our body, yes? Will the talismans stop us from conjuring a flame outside of our cell?My idea is this: the next time the exorcists are interrogating a prisoner in their cell, we wait until it gets violent or at least until there is shouting occurring- then we conjure a focused flame on the prisoner. While the exorcists are busy trying to figure out what's going on, we ham up the act by recoiling in fear. >Oh god, no... Not me next, NOT ME NEXT!>How far are you animals willing to go with this?>Please don't burn us... We don't deserve this.>If you've resolved to killing us, let me be with my family I don't want them to be alone in these last moments.Horrify the other prisoners, cause doubt between the exorcists.If the high priest arrives and we bluff really damn well, we could actually make our Temes cover valid in the eyes of the church. Which would be ideal.
>>25574937originally, the plan called for us further making fun of her if her forehead was still obscured, talking about filth and once again mentioning Noah's flood, but it is a flexible enough plan to be changed.
>>25574851>Apologize to her, ask to see her foreheadDon't ask outright. >>25574902This.
>>25574851>> Apologize to her, ask to see her forehead.to her "turn off the water works will ya? seems my luck with women won't be getting better anytime soon after all this mess">> Talk to the guard like he's your best friend."So, you and your brother work for the order long? Young men like you seem a sorts outta place with the church but sounds like good work. When this gets sorted out you both should stop by the bakery for a couple free loaves.... *sigh sadly, with forlorn tone *if I still can bake in this town when all this is over....">(I fixed the sheet and rewarded 60 exp for my mistake. THe proper exp amount was 40, not 440. ) so total at 100 if i read this right?
>>25574851[X] Apologize to her, ask to see her forehead.Let's not make a possible Noah sad.
>>25574987Total is correct.>>25574961You'd have to try it to know.Overall, good stuff guys. Writing now. Speak quickly or hold your peace.
You stretch back in your cell, acting unaffected at first as her sobbing really starts coming on. Finally getting fed up with it you call out," God lady, turn off the waterworks, I'm sorry. Wasn't fair of me to take all this out on you anyway.."The sniffling stops and you see the woman glaring at you again, though only for a moment. before she reclines against the wall of her cell,"So, they're calling you a demon, is that right?" Her voice is smooth now, eloquent. Not fitting for a lady that's currently wearing rags."That they are.... I doubt I'll ever bake again in this town..." You look over at the guard,"Isn't that right, pal? Though, I mean hey. It must be nice getting this cushy job guarding prisoners all the time. You're brother's a decent guy too right?" You speak loudly and obnoxiously as he ignores you, staring forward."You a bread guy? Hey Morgan, he looks like a bread guy right? Must like that whole wheat if I had to guess. Good for shitting." You take a deep whiff of the air."Speaking of that, I've got to drain the snake." You stand up, out of the itchy straw strewn about on the floor and turn around to undo your trousers in front of the bucket. "You may want to turn away my lady. I'm about to unleash Noah's Flood." You release oil into the bucket with a smile. Certainly this could come in handy later.."Noah's flood?" You hear from behind you, from an almost dazed Morgan. "Say, wghat do you know of Noah? I've read the bible, but it doesn't seem quite right to me lately.. as something in that part is missing... As though-" You hear the sharp sound of metal on metal from behind you."No.. more.. Heathen... talk..." The man's broken voice sighs out from his lips.You shake and put your trousers up. Seems you may just have a winner here. . . Though further talk may incur the guard's wrath..
> Begin preparations for a plot (Write in)> Speak to Morgan anyway.> Wait silently.> Heckle the guard some more, this guy's funny after all. Almost best friend level.. Not better than Fred though.. > (Other)
>>25574162Awww Yeahhh beers, cotton candy and Akuma quest! Best Friday ever
>>25575221Let's get our heckle on
>>25575239I know right?
>>25575212> Speak to Morgan anyway.At this point talking to her or heckling the guard will have the same result.How many grates are between us and Mr Rusty?
So our strength is down, but how's our speed? would our ability to dodge be affected by the seals?
>>25575221> Speak to Morgan anyway.Speak to Morgan about other stuff. "So, how'd you get into this lovely place?"> Heckle the guard some more, this guy's funny after allHeckle him. He might threaten us with his innocence. Also, beyond that, we should wait and see if this guy sleeps or gets relieved or what.
>>25575221[X] Speak to Morgan anyway. And we may as well gather a bit of info on the guard as well."Sorry sweetheart, Mr. Grumpypants over here doesn't like our 'Heathen talk'. Quite a stick up his ass. Maybe they'll realize that we're innocent and should be let go instead of imprisoning us for the crime of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.Say, Morgan, does Mr. Grumpypants even have a name? Does he ever leave you alone, or is he always watching you? Because that's kinda creepy, not even giving a fine lady like yourself any privacy. Have you ever heard him manage more than a word at a time?"
>>25575212excellent. just as planned. Begin preparations for a plot (Write in) we need a way to get this oil to spread. perhaps we fake trip over the bucket, causing the contents to spill over the ground. it should be dark enough in there that it won't look odd right away. does the charm only affect our strength?>>25575313no need to ask if he ever leaves. Exorcists are known for being headstrong. I bet he only leaves after he switches off with his brother.
>>25575307I will tell you this. he will not sleep. and I doubt he will be relieved, since he is the only exorcist here. he is very focused on his mission, and right now it is to guard our Witch.
>>25575306The strength lower reduces speed as well. However your high agility allows you to still have something left..
>>25575419how about our powers? does it affect them?
>>25575439You aren't currently aware what the talisman's doing to your magical abilities.
I like the idea of slowly raising the temperture here until his goose gets cooked.
>>25575221Never better than Fred, no.>Hey buddy, you feeling alright? You sound like you could use some fresh air. In fact, I'll do ya one better- I happen to have breathing problems of my own. I've been seeing this doctor lately, and let me tell you he's done wonders for me. The man's a miracle worker, he's got a magic touch. If you just let him take a good look at you, it'll be like a complete rebirth. You'll gain a new perspective on life, believe you me pal.
>>25575465I think that this is a bit suspicious to say, no reason to make it that obvious that we know about the Good Doctor.
>>25575451ah, I see. some how I have a feeling that ripping it off can only end badly...actually, I have a Idea.amending my plan from >>25575375when we fake trip over the bucket, we fall in a way that gets oil on the charm. maybe if the ink fades away, we can take it off easily.
>>25575484a bit suspicious? try practically admitting to being an Akuma.
>>25575375Sounds good to me.
>>25575484I'm trying to enforce the image that the exorcists are overly paranoid and snap at the first thing that they believe is "heathen" even if it's completely innocent(granted, in our case it isn't).
>>25575576no, dude, was barely subtle at all. the only thing I can see that getting us is a face full of Innocence.
>>25575576We on the other hand are trying to give the impression that we are not a (literally) god damned demon.
>>25575523On second thought tipping the bucket might not be the best idea. The smell would give us away unless there was actually urine in there.
>>25575657Furthermore, if the exorcist gets near our cell, we can always throw at him the content of the bucket.
>>25575657it stinks to high heaven, guarenteed. I doubt he will notice. besides, the smell is already in the air.
>>25575677You're not thinking big enough. We pour the contents directly into his armor, and then the fun begins.
>>25575221We're heckling this guard
>>25575221For now heckle the guard while discretely coating the charm with our blood oil.
>>25575741the only way we can do that is to trip over bucket, spill contents, and land in contents charm first.
You stare down at the bucket for a moment. Considering the possibility of spreading it around... You walk around in a circle, nervously... You'd be acting.. however no. You are in fact quite nervous. If this exorcist here decided to attack, it'd be like shooting a duck in a barrel. And you don't like being the duck."So, Morgan." You speak out loud," How'd you end up here?""I don't see why I should let you pry into my business.." She says, with an appraising tone."We'll both be dead or alive in a few days. One or the other. What's a few words between two on maybe death-row?""You do make a point... Why not?" She clears her throat."I was buying apple-cider from the market when my head felt like it was on fire and began to bleed. The Cider-seller screamed, I screamed, something caught on fire, and now I'm here.Interesting story, is it not?" You stumble over the bucket, and fall into your own oil as you try to say something. "Awww, fuck'n sod! Ahh, it's so grungy its black, This is terrible! God blast it!" You shout, yet you try getting a good amount of the oil on the talisman, hopefully washing away the ink somehow... you don't feel inherently different as of yet... Though you feel the oil dripping from the talisman as you rise.You begin to wipe it off on the straw," Ah, sorry for that Miss Le Fey..."The woman leans against the wall again,"My damn head still hurts..." She whispers."Hey, time for Din-Din, you rotten slags!" A familiar voice calls into the prison. You soon see the similar shining armor of the other Asher brother. He turns to you, regarding your cell closely," Oh, so you're the new arrival! Suppose that black as sin bread was from the heart of its maker!"
>>25575824or "slip" in the contents some time after we spill them.
>>25575868>Suppose that black as sin bread was from the heart of its maker!""Sir, I care not if you wish to sully my name. But I will ask that you never insult my ART a second time."
"Hey now, that doesn't ma-"You man gets very close to the bars of your cell, not touching the bars,"You are guilty as a demon before being proven innocent. My brother or I could snuff your smug mug out as though blowing a candle. Do not back-talk me, scum." The man turns to his brother, laughing like a normal human being."Hey, you see that there Byran? See how that demon damn near pissed hisself?"Byran's voice grumbles out," Covered... in..."The younger brother laughs," Ah, no need to talk now. Save your words for people that need 'em. How's the witch doin? She piss in a bucket yet?""She...""Bah, go an' take your supper. I'll watch the prisoners."Byran Asher says nothing and walks away from the cell, down the hall and up the stairs."Speaking of dinner do we-""Shut up you fucking demon. We know your kind doesn't eat. You should be happy that the high priest will be arriving soon, within the next day. You know, 'cause if your not a demon, you'll walk. An' if y' ar." The knight slides a thumb across his neck.Well, this guy is muuuch less fun than the other one...>What's the plan?>You COULD wait until they've captured some of the family if you trust them...
>>25575934Hmm, I think we should do SOMETHING now. My preferences is either poison gas\smoke or heat.
>>25575934The exorcist is out of the room? I say we go all out and use our flame magic against the guard.
>>25575934this guy doesn't have the silver cross correct?I say if we break we do so now, wait for him to be distracted and grab some bread. Split with Morgan and go for our Fireball the room after blood cannon on knight
Could darkness be an element? Something like 'allows travel during night.'
>>25575934"That is not how guilt works, nor how a good man acts. And you have insulted my bread for no reason.Your kind sees themselves as hounds protecting sheep from the wolves, yet I have not been imprisoned, abused, nor had my home destroyed by demons, only by you hounds who savage your flock for your own amusement."Banter some, get him on edge, easy to distract or fuck with. Hilarity ought to ensue.As for the plan, I'd prefer to wait until we have more on our side, more from the Family should come in soon either due to noticing that we're gone, or because they got taken in, though we need to leave before tomorrow.>>25575980I'm pretty sure this guy is also an Exorcist.
>>25575934we should not wait until they've captured our family. Ivan is probably still gone, so that only leaves Madeleine as the only Lvl 2 akuma nearby, and at lvl 2 they usually have enough willpower to not outright attack exorcists or humans.they will more than likely go to the camp first, and the Kids will more than likely be unable to resist attacking. and they will be killed like bitches.So, we must make our move NOW. by which I mean wait a few moments, let the actual exorcist get far enough away that we won't have to worry about him immediately. maybe during that time, our charm will weaken.
>>25576042nope there was only one exorcist there, and he just left the room. luckily, he also wears armor. makes it easier for us to cook him.
>>25576000>>25576056>>25575934the last thing he'd expect us to do is be able to break seal and firebomb the room. grab morgan and use speed to escape and take to the skies
>>25575934I believe now is the time for action. Become a cutting inferno of death.
>>25576042Wait, scratch that, only the one.We should still wait a decent bit, just because we kill this guy doesn't mean that we're home free. We should wait for long enough that the Exorcist is a decent distance away at the very least.
>>25576076>and weight down with gravity in his heavy armor
>>25576109can we do that without looking like we're doing it? just gradually make it about 50 lbs heavier than normal so he doesn't notice the change all at once?
>>25576108oh corse, but we can't sense his movements and he is eating in the dining hall of the same building. we'd have to get by him somehow anyway since the only exit is up the stairs
>>25576076I'm not sure about cooking.Look, for this kill we need it to be utterly silent and fast. Once we weaken the talisman, taunt him some, maybe get him to open the door of our cage in order to punish us and vent his frustration we go dragon, rip his head off, take his armor off, char his corpse, and then head out of there in disguise with Morgan. Or something like that.
You realize that you're still covered in oil and have a personal fire-source... yes? Why don't you just set yourself on fire?
>>25576145Good idea, lets goad him into attacking us in our cell. We can insult his God, that generally get his kind uppity.>>25576168We could coat our cell floor with oil too. Maybe he will slip and kill himself. That would be a funny crit.
>>25576168Not until we can get our hands on the knight to properly show what we think of his critiques of our bread.
>>25576145no way. we need to hit hard and fast and get the fuck out of there. there's no point in trying to act like we aren't akuma anymore, we got what we came for. then we meet up with the rest of the family, hopefully Ivan is back, and slaughter the rest of the town.and maybe even offer the nice baker a once in a lifetime deal.
>>25576168actually, Yeah, I like that Idea.we goad him on, get him into the cell, then we flame on, burn off our charm, and kill him quickly with chainsaw teeth to the neck.
Can't we just shove him into our internal oven?
>>25576226that... actually, that might work. he'd certainly cook very quickly in there.
>>25576168We should tell Morgan to try and do something magic like start a fire or something, see what powers she has.
Alright, compilation time gentlemen. What's your favored course of action?
>>25576200I agree on the hard and fast thing, but if he raises an alarm getting out will be much more difficult. >>25576168That's also good, once the opportunity arises and he's opened our cell, hopefully, we set ourself on fire, go dragon, and bit his head off quick as can be. He won't see it coming.
>>25576244>>25576226I'm pretty sure we specifically gave that ability up in favor of making bread in our oven. it would have been a blast-furnace. though correct me if I'm wrong Duke.
>>25576226We chose creation not destruction as our oven. Besides do you really want to give an exorcist with an unknown innocence prime acess to our insides.
>>25576267It's a creation oven: all purpose
>>25576275this too.also, I just realized. If we suddenly and spontaneously ignite, they'll probably think it's Morgan, since she appearantly set something on fire in the market, and that's why she's here in the first place.
>>25576275That one isn't an exorcist, but he might still cause damage inside of us.Which is why I think we should bite his head off, no time to scream.
>>25576305The throat would also work. Gurgles don't carry very far.
Rolled 5>>25576266how can he raise the alarm once he's dead? plus, I bet the charms will do that for us. so, we need to kill him quickly, get Morgan out of her bindings quickly and start climbing up the stairs in our dragon form. if anyone starts to come down the stairs, we can simply fireblast them.
>>25576305let's get him in our cell, then ignite, and stagger towards him screaming "OH GOD, THE PAIN, PLEASE MAKE IT STOP!!! I'M SORRY, I DIDN'T MEAN IT!" or something along those lines. after a couple of seconds, when the seal is gone, and we're near him, we can transform and go for the kill.
>>25576324Some people have been suggesting cooking him alive in his armor or other things like that which'll give him time to scream in agony.>>25576331That works for me.
>>25576331Lets do that.
>>25576331thissay something to Morgan, like call her a witch and then catch on fire>>25576168
>>25576339right, I remember suggesting that. but now that I think about it, I like the idea of taunting him into our cell, flaming ourselves up, and then biting his head off.
>>25576351I don't know that we should imply it's intentional on her part. they might kill her to get it to stop, and since we don't know if she's fully awakened... they might kill her.
>>25576367actually, he would likely just let us burn.
>>25576381if he's in the cell with us, it won't matter how he reacts, just so long as it isn't an instant attack. also, I suspect it's mostly posturing, and I seriously doubt that he's suspicious enough to think that we'd set ourselves on fire. that and we're good actors.
You look around, considering your options with this scumbag of a human... God you'd just love to tear his throat out, maybe make his brother watch if he wasnt' likely to try killing you in the process..Though these thoughts won't be getting you out of this mess... You still feel the talisman's strength going strong on you, and there's still this barrier to worry about within your cell."So hey, about this guilt thing... I don't think that's how it should work, nor how a good man should act... Also, why would you insult my bread?It's not like I went out of the way to insult you or som-""Shut your goddamn mouth! I'm sick of listening to you." He turns to the cell door of the witch,"Hey there you whore... How about you turn on this way? Spread those legs a bit and maybe little brother Rickton will loosen your bindings for a bit, eh? Hehe."Morgan says nothing, yet you hear her move a bit, the guard obscuring your sight of her."Hah, you filthy bitch! I can't believe you'd actually do that!" The man laughs, the laughter echoing throughout his helm and into the room.Your blood boils at the sheer injustice of this whole thing. This man is insulting the Noah...You cannot have that."Hey, hey. You can't prefer women can you? Sound more like a boy-toucher." You heckle the man... Getting in a much needed chiding.Rickton Asher turns to you, staring,"What was that?""I said, you like the dangly bits between a boy's legs more than the comfort of a woman!"The guard chuckles before laughing like mad abruptly. He soon quiets, and disturbingly quickly," You seem to think I'm stupid or something... For you, I can punish you...The guard holds out his fingers in a strange pose and begins chanting, saying three indistinguishable words in sequence.Suddenly, electric-like pain jolts through your body as the talismans upon the walls begin to shine. A searing scorch that's not yours tears into you, digging deep down into the core of your being...
Finally, in the throes, with the Asher laughing the entire time, it feels as though your skin is being turn off. You writhe upon the floor of your chamber as the talismans resume their glow, although a bit dimmer... Then again, that might just be the horrible pain...At the end, as you just hang onto your consciousness," I may not bear their mark, though I was trained by this order. I knew more than a trick or two. You would do well not to test me demon."> Time to push the Talismans to the limit...> Time for some self imposed immolation...> Time to wait.> Time to grovel and beg.> Time for (other)"Hey, Witch! Moo like a cow and shake your ass over this way!""M-moo...""Louder!""Moo...""I can't hear you!""Moo!" And sobbing ensues..
>>25576741[X] Time for some self imposed immolation...Right then. We'll slaughter them to the last man.
> Time to push the Talismans to the limit...> Time for some self imposed immolation...Time to fry a bitch
>>25576741Unacceptable.We have to act quickly. We can try self immolation, while faking being in horrible pain.
>>25576741self-imposed immolation.If he doesnt' come over to extinguish us, we pretend to be dead and wait for someone to come dispose of the "corpse". put our talent for not breathing to good use.
>>25576741>> Time to push the Talismans to the limit...>> Time for some self imposed immolation..."Its impolite, to talk to a lady is such a manner!"
>>25576741SELF IMPOSED IMMOLATION. plus, our cell floor is covered in oil, it should make for a good scene.as soon as the thing burns off we transform enough to use gravity magic, use pressure cannons to cover him in oil, and set him on fire. then we break Morgan out and get the fuck out of here quickly.
>>25576780I'd rather just go full burning cutting inferno.
>>25576780this is also a great time to make it seem like we think he's setting us on fire.
>>25576780he won't fall for it, trust me. we need to kill him now.
>>25576804hey, I didn't say he'd fall for it, but someone's going to come to get the corpse some time. (unless there's skeletons in here, are there skeletons in here?)
>>25576797let's just drop the charade, he knows what the spell does. let's just kill him and not try to act.
>>25576818no, we need to act now. we can't afford to wait for someone else. we need to act NOW! it is time for the PANIC BUTTON.
>>25576741[X] Time to push the Talismans to the limit..."Heh, coward, scum. Abusing a poor woman and afraid to do anything yourself. Hahahaha, you're afraid of little old me, afraid of a humble baker, can't even do anything personally, so you take it out on a girl. You're a disgrace, at least your brother has some class."Get him to burn out Talismans more before we set ourself on fire, transform and rip our way to him.
Pushing the talismans to the limit.Roll 1d100.
Rolled 61>>25576835yeah... this is sounding good. if we could ignite at the moment the talismans short out, he might even think that it's an accidental side-effect.>>25576848
Rolled 94>>25576848Will this be done via power or fire?
Rolled 3>>25576848let's see if my bad luck is still here
>>25576862DAMNIT, I WASN'T FAST ENOUGH!
>>25576862well, the bad luck wasn't still there...
>>25576741I take it back. Not only are you stupid, but you couldn't get any from even a child. I might suck at charming females, but you have got to be the most pathetic man I've ever had the displeasure of meeting. The only demon here is you.
Well, you need a distraction, and fast... You shudder through the pain and reflexively groan as you begin to get up. Glaring at the man as his back is turned, you laugh, a mad thought coming over you.consciously, you remove some of your pain receptors by sheer force of will, essentially removing your limiters. Time to see how well this works exactly...You resolve to spark your oil right as these damn talismans burn out. Oh yes, you'll have this piece of human waste yet... How dare he do this to a member of the Noah..."Hey, look. I take it back...""Do you now?" The guard looks back, chuckling at your apparent groveling.Time to twist it," Not only are you stupid, but you couldn't get any from even a child." The chuckling stops," I might suck at charming the ladies, but you have got to be the most pathe-" "San Itami Shiki Enga-je" Your body is wracked with pain and you try to force off more receptors even as it goes through. You feel a cool numbness course through your body as you resist the spell's effect to the best of your ability. "The most... pathetic man.. I've ever had... the displeasure... of meeting...""Yottsu Itami Shiki Enja-ge!" The man calls out furiously.You feel the damage grow worse riht away. if you were human, this would have likely friend your nerves.. "The only demon... here... Is you...""Itsusu Itami Shiki Enga-je!" The man nearly screams, even as the talismans' attack worsens.. You bear the brunt of it, feeling awful despite the lack of pain... Yet you bear with the skin-tearing sensation and soon find that the charge of the talismans is now gone...You sit there, acting affected deeply by the strong attack.... Only to fall to the ground and letting a lick of flame from your heart catch the oil upon you and everything else within your cell.The flames catch and spread quickly, only for the guard to laugh," So now you're aflame! Say, did the witch do it?
wow just looked at the archives, someone is extremely bitter about quests. Whomever archived this thread was incredible childish.
>>25577182Lets burst out of this cell like the goddamn kool-aid man.
>>25577182It's MURDER TIME! Let the flame give off enough smoke to conceal us, turn dragon, bust through the door and eat his head. Make it quick of course, don't let him scream. Then we'll apologize to the Lady Morgan for the inconvenience and let her out.
Seems like a witchy thing to do. Seeing as how you're dead, I suppose we should see to the witch's punishment. Don't worry dear, I won't use the wards on you... I've got something else.." The man opens her door...> Time to strike!> Wait longer... we're going to make this good...> Just play dead for a while...> (Other)
> Time to strike!
>>25577190At least he got the quest number right.
>>25577190I made the mistake of posting in a discussion thread thinking that it was a quest general. I spoke good and true like a proper gentleman..Seems someone prefers to play an underhanded game.I think I'll need to remedy the archive by saving all this and setting it up in a new thread...There are much better ways to be sinister than doing something so... tacky...Besides, would any of you say that this truly feels like an anime quest? I never really thought to treat it as such...
>>25577190Fuck em, sounds like an angry shadow quest troll venting his sperglord rage.
Also, on the note of apparent "edgyness."Would that relate?Seems bitter people like to throw around that word a great deal...
>>25577257wait until he full attention is on her the flare the flames to destroy seals and go for a quick chomp to the head
>>25577257[X] Time to strike!Use that speed of ours to bite his neck.>>25577293If you contact the admin of the archive they can change the information.>>25577303Don't go throwing blame at other quests that's what the one who does these things is aiming for.
>>25577257[X] Wait longer... we're going to make this good...Let the smoke build up so if he does turn around all he sees is smoke, let him be distracted for a bit longer.Then transform when he's not looking, if the Talismans aren't completely useless turn on flame cloak, and get to him as fast as we can and bite his head off. It should be easy to go straight through the bars with our teeth, and hopefully we can do it semi-quietly in order to get us the most surprise on our attack possible.
>>25577182"Oh pitiful soul bound in the darkness, Looking down upon people, and causing them pain, A soul drowned in sinful karma... Perhaps it is time to die?"we say that as we burst out of our cell, partially transformed and on fire. then we douse him in oil from our pressure cannons, weigh him down with our gravity magic and then light him like a bonfire.
>>25577293>>25577313Some people just want to watch the world burn Good Doctor, let us simply use those flames bake the most delicious bread.
Ah... nevermind. I just had an idea.Perhaps we should leave it as is?The greatest insult to anyone is to be ignored after all <3 And he got the tag of "Akuma Quest" correct.
>>25577314Wait until he moves in on Morgan and see if she can do anything cool. I bet she can>The Cider-seller screamed, I screamed, something caught on fire, and now I'm here.
>>25577293>>25577313Some people are just assholes. Sure it's inspired by anime, but it's hardly a typical anime quest, if you renamed Akuma Demons and the Earl of Millennium something else it'd just look like a western fantasy thing. And sure we're murderous, but we're rather practical about it.
>>25577354if she could of, she would have done it already. we really need to act now
>>25577334>>25577257Let's do this, but shove our hand into his mouth so he can't incant or scream.
>>25577368It sounds like one of those powers that only activates under stress or something.
>>25577334Don't talk until he's dead, we don't take any risks with people who can throw magic around like that. We give as little hint that we're attacking as possible, we stop him from spellcasting with all possible haste, and then kill him as quietly as we can. The less alarm raised the better.
I see a course of action.Please tumble a 1d100.As a note, you'll have the advantage.
>>25577293For starters, this would be classified as a manga quest because we're working off the original source material. And even then, no I would treat it as neither. Ignore the petulant child. In fact, do as I have done- upvote the thread. Let them say what they please, as long as the votes stay consistent more people will join this quest. The plebeian who slandered our thread will fade into obscurity. Wear the insults with pride, my lord.
>>25577394so wait. are you telling me she HASN'T been stressed during her whole being in the stockades and having shit thrown at her?
Rolled 10>>25577398well, if we just wait until we've slammed our hand into his mouth it shouldn't be a problem.
>>25577421>>25577415so is devil luck off cause...
>>25577421shall we use retro powers now?
>>25577421AND NOW WE RETROACTIVELY TURN OFF DEVIL'S LUCK
>>25577421well damn. retroact. we do NOT need a critfail right now...
>>25577434Yes, yes we should, this is something we really, really, shouldn't fuck around with. We end him quick.
>>25577428always assumed on.
>>25577354So you want the prospective Noah to remember us as that asshole who let her get raped to see if it would make her more powerful. ARE YOU A COMPLETE AND TOTAL MORONIC IDIOT.
>>25577421we turned devil's luck off last thread right? or just turns on at new thread?
>>25577421for a crit on this stealth kill, ill vote retro
>>25577182Burn the Talisman from your head is the very first thing that we need to do.
>>25577450it's just presumed on, unless we retroact it off. It's just how we roll.
>>25577423I dunno man, we barely understand women- let alone female Noah. I kid, I kid.But yeah that's really strange, all things considered.
>>25577469ugh, no pun intended.
>>25577421>>25577439Beautiful.Current number of retroactivations/deactivations are 0.A baby cries into the night within a tavern as it's born. An evil thing snuffs out its life. You hear the laugh.
>>25577488we stole that baby's luck.
>>25577488>that flavor textvote to upgrade DL after this just for that
>>25577488Whoa. That's amazing, I really want to meet this thing now.
>>25577502>>25577488I am in agreement with this anon. also Devil's luck is hella baller.
>>25577488>A baby cries into the night within a tavern as it's born. An evil thing snuffs out its life. You hear the laughThis.This right here.The main reason I follow this quest religiously(satanically?)
>>25577638its still a religion even if its evil.
>>25577638satanism is a religion... I... think. maybe it's considered a cult because it doesn't have enough followers.
>>25577650wait... since when was religion not evil? *BADUM TSH* I keed, I keed.
>>25577671Well are we talking Luciferianism, which is actual Theistic Satanism, or LaVeyan Satanism which uses Satan as a symbol rather than an object of belief. Though LaVey wasn't as cool as Crowley was.But yes, there aren't that many of either type in the world.
You let the flames billow around you as you wait, the noxious fumes floating upon the air, your body numb to everything... and oh, how much you'd love to just burst out into your true form right now... You hear the cell door open deliberately.. so slowly.. Everything is happening so slowly..The twang of metal upon stone, the jostle of plate over plate, shifting, the sizzle of the straw.A dark wind swats out the torch's light. There is a sudden pause in the man's movement.You explode out of your human shell, enhancing your cleaving force with gravity, your body cloaked in an inferno, and smoke obscuring your form.The man reaches for his sword, he says a single word, yet it is too late. Your halberd manifests in your claws, and the blade and spike part the smoke, dividing the air with the pressure, and driving the spike of your halberd through the man's neck, impaling his spine and causing him to fall without any further movement or another word.>exp gained: 100>Total Exp: 200Morgan is in shock for a moment, however she just begins to laugh, cackling like a mad witch.She doesn't yet see you, due to the smoke... And those wards likely alerted the people upstairs...Next course of action?> Rip out the bars and liberate her.> Hook the man and check for keys.> Fill the rest of the floor with smog and remain where you are.> (Other)Approaching Morgan> Human-form> Demon-form
>>25577753>> Rip out the bars and liberate her.>> Hook the man and check for keys.Human Form"I apologize for my crassness Lady Morgan, but we must find you a Doctor"buy Devil's luck
>>25577745A shame by my standard. They carry an interesting perspective.I've looked into both during my time as a teen.Not much blood drinking, ritual sacrifice, or scorn for humankind. It's actually rather in good taste with the right amounts, as is anything. Though I draw parallels to Buddhism and the Tao in my personal beliefs. Hehe..
>>25577753[X] Rip out the bars and liberate her.Approach in Demon-form.Time to upgrade that luck of ours.
> Rip out the bars and liberate her.
>>25577779this, but Demon form so she can ride us out of here>we are Wish Dragon>>25577753
>>25577753check for keys, if they're not obvious, rip the bars. approach in human form, afterall, she might not be done transforming, and normal people often don't react well to giant flaming dragons coming towards them.
>>25577753rip out the bars and liberate her, and approach her in demon form, after turning off our cloak of flames."Mi'lady, I'm afraid I don't have time to explain. get on my back and I will get you out of here."
>>25577753how about approach as Dragon then turn into Human
Fill the room with smoke and liberate Morgan.
>>25577826we don't have time for that. we need to get out of here and be battle ready.
>>25577826I kinda don't think that'd be better if you're trying to be carefull not to freak her out.
>>25577753[X] Hook the man and check for keys.It's easier than ripping doors open, but if that doesn't work.[X] Rip out the bars and liberate her.And also eat him.The basic plan is keep on exuding smog, open the other cells somehow so the people in here can escape, either with key or just ripping it open, assuming we're not the only ones here, and their escape and fleeing will cause chaos for the guards so we can leave with ease.>Demon-formGo demon form, let her see us for who we are, free her, turn off the flame, kneel down, gently take one of her hands, and give it a light kiss. "Milady Morgan, I must apologize for the deceit and your recent distress. I will explain everything shortly, I am your ally in all things and we must make haste in our escape."Then turn back into human and start freeing everyone else. Try to blend in.
Wait couldn't we just melt the bars?
>>25577876pretty sure that'd be melting Morgan as well...
>>25577859yeah, blending in is a bad idea, since they won't be trying to capture anyone alive. and all the guys down here are weak and pathetic.
>>25577908They'll serve an excellent distraction. They'll all be fleeing the smog as quickly as they can and tarpit the guards, keep them occupied and distracted. It'll be easier to slip out as a person and switch to full dragon when we need to than it will be to just go start off as a dragon and draw every last bit of attention to ourself. It won't be a long lasting deception, but if it gets us anywhere near a window with everyone else getting slaughtered by guards before we have to change it'll be worth it.
>>25577908When it comes to the crowds,I tend to think the exorcists are going to be the ones doing the blending. But not blending in, more like the blender blending variety.
>>25577950there aren't windows, there's a stairway going up. and that's it.
>>25577971I'm aware of that, there's probably windows or some kind of exit at some point higher up after we take the stairs. I'd rather have a mob of prisoners take the brunt of the damage and attention going up rather than everyone focusing on the fucking dragon in the narrow stairway.
>>25577956I think there's one Exorcist, and if he pulls it on civilians it means we'll see what it is before he can pull it on us.
>>25577999I do see your point, but we might be able to just get away if we go as fast as possible and don't bother to free any other prisioners. but, in the end, it is the will of the many here.
>>25577999hm... I wonder if the good doctor can reach us here? we have so many broken people here just waiting to become Akuma...
Someone archived this as Edgy Anime Quest 9 on Sup/tg/.
>>25578074yeah. we're ignoring them.
You struggle with the bars for a moment as you twist them and heat them up, forcing them to soften before you finally tear them apart, liberating yourself.You move across the hall of the cells and change into your human form to enter Morgan's chamber. The woman's laugh still rings through the prison even as the other inmates cough and hack through your noxious smog.You grip the stocks that bind her and twist, aiming to break them apart, yet to no avail. Touching them even seems to drain your fiery heart of its magic...This will not do. This will not do at all.Yet she just... keeps laughing."My lady, I apologize for my crassness earlier but we really must be going now. How do I take this unsightly thing off of you?"Between laughs,"Need... the... Key..."You nod, holding the woman's hands through her stocks," Yes, yes, and where is it?"Her laughter hits a crescendo at that and then comes right back down," The other brother has it!" That is NOT what you wanted to hear... She calms down," Oh, I'm so glad that piece of cow-shit's dead. Say, are you some kind of monster or something? Because I'd really like it if you were a monster or something." You hear more shouting from up the stairs... what's the plan?> Move her like this, it'll be cumbersome, yet with enough speed..> Send fire and smog up the stairs.> Go upstairs in human-form, find the other brother.> Lie in wait within your cell...> (Other)>Taking votes for next exp purchase.200 exp is had!
>>25578259Devils luck. Right now.
> Go upstairs in human-form, find the other brother.Buy disguise, take the form of the brother.
>>25578259>> Go upstairs in human-form, find the other brother.Disguise
>>25578259Oh I'm the worst kind of monster, I'm a Baker
>>25578307Actually, I like this selection.
>>25578259[X] Move her like this, it'll be cumbersome, yet with enough speed..Lady, we're all about that speed.
Purchasing Disguise.Are you positive?>Y/N
>>25578259[X] Go upstairs in human-form, find the other brother.Buy disguise, take the Brother's form. I say we open up the other cells, let them loose, rush up there ahead of them, tell them that there's a fire and they will die before reaching God's judgement and tell our brother to give us the damn key so we can get her to a not burning location so she can be put to proper justice and interrogation instead of her burning.The smoke/smog will confirm our story.
Also offer her some more bread.
>>25578307Yes this, up our disguise and see if we can just walk out without too much incident. Maybe the other brother is off doing something else.
>>25578376I vote no. I really doubt that we'll fool the exorcist brother with the disguise.
>>25578389Also, for Morgan."Oh, I am a monster milady Morgan. I'm the best kind of monster, I'd your monster." And give her some black bread to eat.
>>25578403hey, if we interject a few good curse-words, it might work. they're both pretty suspicious, but there's really no reason for the brother NOT to believe us.>>25578259>>25578285consider my vote changed to this.
You feel something in you change.. as though your memory banks just expanded dramatically... Enough for you to register the parameters of a whole other human-form... You smile wickedly at the thought..>>Disguise(2) You can disguise yourself as your first human-form and one secondary acquired upon consumption. You bow before Morgan with some exaltation," My lady, I am the worst kind of monster.. A Baker.." You smile gently and pull bread out of the oven within your chest and offer it to her,"And the best, your monster."The woman takes a bite out of the bread and smiles widely," Oh, hoh? It's good.. Quite good. Do what you can to free me then, will you?" She raises an eyebrow, as though she's the one in control here with all the mess of the smog and more.You stroll out of her cell and open up your jaws as you expand into your dragon form, gobbling the man up without running your saws. The metal doesn't go down easy, however you register his entire physical appearance, including his armor.With a return to your human form, you switch settings to Rickton Asher and soon find yourself a few inches taller, wearing a visored helm and having the voice of a horrible god-fearing monster. Then again, what's new?You run your way up the stairs, metal upon stone and then metal upon wood. >roll for bluffing>adjust dialogue for maximum interrupting prick.
Rolled 8"Brother! The Whore somehow set her cell on fire. Even the STONE burns. She was laughing when I left. "
>>25578647>>25578657EXPLATIVE!!! why didn't I type text to go along!
Rolled 11>>25578598"Hey, idiots. Somebody tell me where my brother is, I need the fucking key because there's a fire down there and the whore witch is in for a lot more than just burning, she still needs to be judged and interrogated properly."
>>25578598"Hey, has anyone seen my brother? the whore witch set another prisoner on fire and I need to get the keys from him so I can put out the corpse. it's making it too toasty down there for my liking."
>>25578671Devil's Luck is off already. The crit wouldn't count.
Turn Devil's Luck back on for next rolls?
>>25578809I can think of no reason not to.
>>25578809We can still do that?
You run up the stairs, trying to become properly accustomed to your armor, as you set about no less than seven men standing around the door to the stairs, swords drawn. One of them being... Byron Asher, as you recall?You reach for the man as he unwittingly allows you to move his sword away."Brother! The whore witch..." You take a moment to cough, hack even," She set her cell aflame..." More hacking,"Even the STONE burns... She was laughing... laughing like a madman.. We need to move her out of there.. Do you have the key?""Why..." The metallic gurgle of the man whispers through, yet you know the drill."There is no time! She needs to be moved before the High Priest comes! Would you tell him that we killed the witch without his blessing?!"The Silver-rose-crossed man stares at you for a few moments. You are so glad that these two are clad in full armor.."Here." He fumbles with the key, and the wheels in your head are already turning for the next part of this...You can taste your freedom... so close...> That's it for tonight, I'm certain that we're all tired! Thank you for your time my good gentlemen, a pleasure as usual! <3> Next time Wednesday, 20:00See you all then!Ah, and as usual, I'll be sticking around for another couple ten minutes.
>>25578941Just to clarify. We have one activation, and one deactivation of Devil's Luck per thread right?
>>25578941somehow, I don't think he is just gonna give us the keys like that....
>>25578941Ooh, that is a very useful disguise. We might even be able to keep it around for later use.Snatch the key.So we go down, we may be forced to take them down with us to keep our cover, I hope we can order them to stay up here and secure the perimeter to make sure nothing else weird happens.Then we go down, unlock Morgan, unlock the other cells, make haste up before the prisoners can do much, tell the others that she melted the other cage bars and they need to deal with the prisoners right now.And then as they go down, we go past them, find an exit, and merrily walk away.
>>25579059You have one retroactive activation or deactivation per thread.Otherwise, it can be toggled on and off before a roll.>>25579113Hasty to do this deed aren't we...
For any still here, What do you think I could do to make this "Quest" better?I'm always looking to improve after all!
>>25579080We succeeded in our check and, it seems, the guy is more muscle than brain in this relationship.>>25579330Did you ask for the archived thread to be fixed yet, Duke?
>>25579358No, I did not.I don't much care either which way so long as one tag is the same.If you gentlemen would like it changed, I'd reconsider.
>>25579330that's.... really hard to say. Honestly, nothing sticks out, and believe me when I say that's rare.
>>25579396Eh. Yeah, sure. Getting it fixed would be nice.
>>25579456ha. ha. ha. *claps like a seal*
>>25579483Shh. No need to respond. We all already understand that he's just trying to get a rise out of us.
>>25579497>trying to get a rise out of us.He is a gentleman and a baker.
>>25579512Damnit. Should have seen that coming.Anyways,, sweet dreams Duke. Thanks for the quest.
Sweet dreams gentle devils! Until we meet again!
