Hey /tg/, you want to pillage, plunder, cast foul black magics, and steal souls? Well, every prospective agent of Hell has to start somewhere...This is Imp Quest (1 of hopefully many).You are a mere, newborn Imp freshly awoken from your dream-state and ripped out of your fleshy cocoon by a nursery Devil. You look up at it and you know; you know what it is, a higher ranking member of Hell, and what you are, a lowly maggot freshly metamorphosed from your larval state of a damned soul into a wretched spirit of Pain and Torment. There is work to do, and you shall do it.All Devils are Soldiers of Hell. There is a war being fought, and the battlefield is the material realm. However, this is by no means a conventional war. The enemies of Hell cannot tread upon your King's domain, and neither can denizens of Hell tread in the Heavens. Yet. There comes a time when this will no longer be the case, but for now, this is a distant, hazy future.Slacking will not be tolerated. Hell knows when you've been lazy, and not a moment of thought later and you have to get to work. There are mortals to be tempted, deals to be wrought, and souls to steal.... But how can you do this when you haven't even established what kind of Imp you are?Are you a:>Strong Imp, as in your physical attributes grow fasterThe Strength of your Damned Spirit lends to tasks such as possession, soul-snatching, and of course physically moving objects when you have a manifested, physical form.>Smart Imp: as in your mental attributes grow faster.Your smarts lend to how observant you are, what kind of foul magics you can wreak, and the strength of your connection to Hell's collective subconscious. >Guileful Imp as in your social attributes grow faster.Your guile lends to how convincing you are, how resilient and tightly woven your contracts are, and your likelihood of being summoned by mortal sorcerers and warlocks.
>>26473817First type to get three votes is the type of imp you'll be.
>>26473817> Smart ImpBecause magic
>>26473817>sorcerers and warlocks tend to summon the imps best suited to fleecing them.poor bastards
>>26473876>>26473881>>26473907Smart imp it is, next post coming up.>>26473928I thought it'd be amusing.
>>26473817You pause to inspect yourself. You're not that particularly big of an imp. You stick your tongue out. It's quite long, but it's not particularly forked. Feeling the horns on your head, gives you the answer though. Your horns are quite long, longer than some of the horns you see on other freshly born imps in the spawning pit. You must be a smart imp.There is much to be done in Hell though, and anything that you do could net an opportunity to steal some power from another individual, or even be awarded it if you're an especially useful imp.In the brooding pit, you see only three nursery Devils tending to the cocoons birthing other imps, but they're by far outnumbered by the wobbling and hatching cocoons. Also there are numerous unguarded larva oozing along the pit that, while small, might be delicious and good for your strength.High up above you, you see a great way station, like a floating bus stop. You know it heads to the mortal world, but as you are now, you're not sure you could actually possess anything stronger than a grasshopper should you go there.Elsewhere, there is a Colosseum-like structure. You can here the jeers and cries all the way from where you are.What do?
>>26474046Go for the Waystation.
>>26474046~The Imp~Specialty: Smarts>Strength: 5>Smarts: 10>Guile: 5Current power: 0Rank: Newborn
>>26474046Eat the larva. It's good for you.
>>26473952Sorry, mate, the first few guys piled on smarts.That's one vote for visiting the way station, and one vote for eating the larva.First thing to get three votes is the action, as said before.
>>26474189Is eating lava really good? Anyway im totally going for lava.
>>26474243I'll concede to larva, because why not.
>>26474046Keeping a wary eye on the Devils tending to the fresh hatchlings, you begin skulking out of the way and picking the grub-like little larvae off of the ground and the walls of the brood pit. Popping one into your mouth experimentally yields a tiny burst of energy in your tiny body. Ah, so there is some power in these things!... but not much.Gaining some confidence, you begin to gorge yourself on the larva around the area, under the noses of the understaffed nursery Devils. Isn't it lucky you weren't eaten as a larvae? These things will just mature into other Imps competing against you in the hierarchy anyways.You must have horked down a couple dozen of the little crawly things before it becomes too risky to do so, but you feel a little stronger than before.+2 power.>Sneak even more larvae?>Leave to an aforementioned place>Look for work>OtherWhat do?
Someone should start a cherubim quest, wherein you play a freshly spawned ally of heaven.these two quests would both be in the same universe, run by two peoplemight be cool, but that requires coordination, the bane of getting things done
>>26474369Let's look for some work, need to start somewhere and be a helpful little imp.
>>26474402I was actually thinking about running two simultaneously but I thought that'd be a headache, so I figured I'd do that if this died. If someone DOES want to do that though, I'm all for it. Open another thread though if you want to discuss it. I'mma keep this for the game only.
>>26474408I second this. Lets raise some hell.
>>26474426I would if I wasn't such a baddy.in the meantime we should look for some work, learn about our station and surroundings, and more importantly, how to quickly gain power
Hey OP, a question, will we be an imp forever or will we be able to evolve into some kind of demonic badass? It's cool if we stay as an imp though.
>>26474369Looking for work doesn't take long. Being the a smart imp like you are, you have a stronger connection to the collective of Hell, stronger than most newborns anyways. Clambering out of the broodpit, you begin your search the search for power under the oh so devious guise of helping. Too bad every Devil has beaten you to that ploy, but at least someone somewhere needs help, hmm?You come across an odd "settlement" of sort, complete with what looks like a barracks for strong Demon Soldiers and several nearby buildings including one big off-white building with several steps leading to it. Several heavily robed demons are trailing in and out of that building and are all much bigger than you are.You sense that there is scut work to be done>in the barracks>in the building with the robed Devils>in a small building that resembles a series of outhouses.What do?
>>26474369Look for work and take few larvas with you.
>>26474543Totally possible to metamorphosis out of an imp. I put it in the OP that it could be done, but it will probably take a few Quest sessions to get that far.
>>26474548robed Devils building seems interesting and the kind of job a smart imp would look forward to, whatever it is. Robes=Smart.
>>26474561Is there a differnce between Devils and Demons in this compaign/universe?I also feel like going into the building with big devils. Just becouse Im curious.
>>26474548Robes! You see robes and your impy little brain puts two together and you conclude, these guys must be smert. You plod over there and the robed Devils just keep filing in and out to a rhythm only apparent to them. One even steps on your tail and keeps on moving without even noticing you. Rude, but there's little you can do about it. You can tell these guys are a few pegs higher than you on the totem pole.Going inside, you can see other imps and small variant incarnations of the Damned filing around, carrying scrolls, organizing books, and other things. It would appear you've come across the House of Wisdom. Oh so many things you can do here! One clever bastard is even siphoning off some of the magic being cast by a bigger Devil. It'll be fun to watch if he gets caught.What do?>>26474632Nah, they're essentially the same thing. It's more of a "title" thing kind of like how in the Catholic Hierarchy they're all damned souls or fallen angels but they have different titles based on their sins or niche.
>>26474758Ask some devil if you can help. If not, Siphon the hell out of some devil. Be subtle about it, you be smert.
>>26474758New player reporting in.>>26474796This, also have a look around for some scrolls/spell tomes you might be able to snitch or harvest
>>26474808>>26474796Seconded, harvest if possible, steal if possible, if too risky help out a devil
After this post, I'm going to start rolling stuff with the basic stats put up for strength, smarts, and guile being a 1:1 mod for a d% roll. I'll put the DC of actions up too starting with the next choice. Best of the first three rolls for an action is the roll used. Critfails override this, but critsucceeds cancel out critfails.>>26474758You sneak around and look for tomes and scrolls, but they refuse to open for you, like they're super-glued shot. Even the scrolls refuse to unfurl. You have a feeling it has to do not with your physical strength but with your low power levels. The answer in every quandary in hell is to just get stronger, of course.Hmm, there's an ordering system here with numbers, least to greatest. You have no idea what that means.Abandoning that line of pursuit, you head off and mage to see a Devil in the midst of casting. You discretely try to look busy nearby while you suck some of the excess magic away. Great success! You've managed to acquire +3 power from that... but dare you take more?>Syphon more power (Smarts based, DC 45)>Try to steal a scroll (Smarts based, DC ??)>Other___________Total Power gathered: 5
Rolled 29>>26475006Need to be bold... let's try to syphon some more power!
>>26475056I second this
>>26475006MORE POWER!>If we get caught, narc on the other demon and run for it.
Rolled 12>>26475094whobs forgot my roll
>>26475102Thank you for that 73 kind anon, otherwise we'd be fucked.
Dat 83! (73 + 10 Smarts)>>26475006Successfully, you siphon even more off of the spell. You look like you're just going about your own business too, so no worries. Those silly big Devils just spew it around so wantonly, that you'd be doing Hell a disservice by -not- taking it.The Mage unfortunately finishes his spell and seems like he's busy analyzing the results... but there are always other fish in the sea...+3 Power>Hunt for more magic to steal. (Perception/Smarts)>Try and find books and scrolls you CAN open. Maybe you're strong enough now?>Help a chap out.>Bother a Big Devil / Other Imp / etc.>Leave>Other
Rolled 88>>26475097Derp I should roll...
>>26475210Find an imp weakerer than us, and take its power.>Imp hatchery anyone?
Rolled 63>>26475210Let's find something that we can open now. This concept of scrolls confuses and intrigues me.
>>26475210Lets find us a scroll boys
>>26475210Try to look for a scroll that you can open. Then try to steal more.
Rolled 21>>26475266Rolling for something to open
>>26475210Hmm, those scrolls could have something nice in them. What could you possibly uncover? You look at the various stacks of books, scrolls, and other sorts of papers and parchments and again, you have a strike of inspiration from your connection to Hell's collective subconcious. It pays to be a smart imp. Toddling along, you head down to where the number system organizing these things is lowest. The lowest ranking scroll has an ornate 5 on its wax seal. The next lowest is 8, and after that, a 17... hmm.Just as you break the seal on the scroll, now knowing that the numbers are the ammount of Power you need to access them, a grabby red hand snatches it away from you! Whirling around, you see a smaller, shifty eyed imp, coiled like a spring and ready to bolt. He must have been waiting for a stronger imp to open a scroll for him!>Pursuit (Smarts, DC 45 ~ he's fast).>Flying tackle (Strength, DC 40 ~ Maybe you can do it...)>Bargain (DC 40 minus offering)>otherWhat do?
>>26475448The scroll you broke by the way is the 5 scroll, the lowest one.
Rolled 58>>26475448We pursuit the fuck out of him. We'll show him why you don't mess with THIS imp.
Rolled 78>>26475448The little fucking gitGut him, try not to get his blood on the scroll
Rolled 80>>26475505Lets do this right
>>26475448The smaller imp isn't too bright. He just scampers away as fast as he can, and you easily move along and heard him into a corner. Pouncing, you pin the little bastard face-down on the ground and rip the scroll right out of his hands! You have the scroll, you have him pinned. What do?
>>26475575Odd, my name went away. Oh well. Proceed anons. What do you do?
Rolled 99>>26475595>>26475575we have big horns for a reasongore the fucker
Rolled 45>>26475575KILL THE LITTLE FAG. NOBODY MESSES WITH US...except for everybody that isn't an imp, I suppose.
Rolled 54>>26475623I can't argue with that 99
Rolled 88>>26475623Oh well, why not.
>>26475623Consume him afterwards
>>26475575make him give some power to us!
Rolled 92>>26475822Agreed, we must consume his power too.
>>26475575Give him his life in exchange for his servitude
Rolled 66wait! hell runs on favors! make him swear to show up and obey if we summon him!
Dat 99>>26475575No mercy for this sniveling little thief. You bring your forehead down and ram your larger than average horns into his back, scraping off his not-flesh. The little imp lets out a shrill squeal but can't do anything with you pinning it down. You continue to savage him with your horns until he stops moving.A tingling moves down your horns. Ooooh, this little guy did gather up some power before he met himself with a bad end. You sample the black ichor trailing down your horns and it tastes bitter, unbelievably foul... but there's the barest hint of power hiding in it.Quickly horking down what you can of the corpse, unhinging your jaw and distending your belly, you swallow the little shit whole. Ugh, that tasted nasty. Looks like eating other imps isn't the best source of power... but there was some power to be found there. +2 power. Total Power: 10Now that you have the chance to read the scroll, you see that it's addressed specifically to new imps. How convenient."Welcome, servant of Hell, to your eternity in the glorious principalities of their glorious light. You will find in this House of Wisdom many tomes of power and magic but little else. Magic is not All, but it is powerful. It will also drain you of your power reserves, but it may be the key to netting even more power, such as when a mortal summoner drags you into his realm.Only the strongest of Hell may partake in the more advanced tomes and therefore only those with certain ammount of power can break the seals on these collections.You need 1000 to metamorphose into your next stage of your Wretched Unholy Existence. Gather it however you can during your service to hell.
>>26475946Also, +1 to Smarts
>>26475946>1000Fuuuuuuuuuckbetter crack open the next scroll
Rolled 84>>26475946Let's open the next scroll, see if we can learn our first spell.Also, I'll have to leave soon, How can we know when next thread will start, OP?
>>26475992Don't worry, that's how much you need to no longer be a "mere imp." You'll still get strong along your way to that.
Rolled 90>>26475946Become a soldier and go to war with mortals realm to get powers?
>>26475946Open the scroll that required 8 power to open
Rolled 17>>26475946I think its time we hunted for workor went to the ortal world and bothered some mortals. Assuming we can do anything at our power level.
>>26476020>Also, I'll have to leave soon, How can we know when next thread will start, OP?https://twitter.com/TheHypnoJewI'll announce updates on this. Probably tomorrow sometime.
>>26475946Hmm, that's intriguing. You open up your next scroll, might as well since you have the power. Unfurling it, you see some arcane gobbledegook that soon becomes utterly seered in your mind. You've gained the Touch of Fire spell, set shit on fire with your bare hands! This fire is utterly mundane after started and spreads like normal fire. Being a demon though, you needn't fear it. This is a low level spell and doesn't really consume any power to speak of.Now, you don't think you can yet open much else at your current power level... but you should return here, oh yes you should.What do?As a reminder, you know of a barracks, the way station to the mortal realm, a Colosseum, and the brood pit.
Rolled 97>>26476176Waystation for glory!
Rolled 40>>26476176Let's check out those barracks.
>>26476176Well shit, 7 more power for the next scroll. I say we head to the waystation and see if we can do some shenanigans in the mortal realm now that we have some magic.Is the waystation the place to go to get summoned by a warlock?
>>26476222put the dice+d100 in the email field you plebian
>>26476176dice+1d100Colosseum sounds great but we'd probably get our shit wrecked, let's hit the barracks.
Rolled 69>>26476176damn, i rolled a 90...Oh right, let's go to the mortal realm allready. Try to posess someone if possible or do a little trickery with mages to get power.
>>26476245Thanks, im just a larva.
>>26476176Lets find some work here at the House of Wisdom
>>26476245Thanks. Rerollin' for the barracks.
Rolled 12>>26476275God fucking damnit
Rolled 6 + 3Looks like the Waystation to the Mortal World got three votes first.>writing
>>26476285sorry its dice+1d100
Rolled 81>>26476318Another question: which form do Hell have and do we know it? I mean, is it like 9-steps like Dante's hell, or just an formless underworld?
>>26476419I'm pretty sure it's 4chan-shaped.For they're one and the same.
Rolled 52>>26476419oh and are there any mortals' soul beeing tortured?
>>26476318The Waystation is up... up very high, but that's no problem for the likes of hell. While in your native realm, flight is simple, nay instinctual. And so, you can fly, fly high up to the rocky ceiling dripping black and green ooze on the lower plane of hell below.You arrive on the edge on a platform. Looking down, you see a hollowed-out cone of hell, the uppermost layer that you were born on, and several lower rings each descending into a darker, danker part of this cursed realm. You can smell a dark and terrible force brooding at the very bottom, at a depth your little imp brain, although mighty among imps, cannot comprehend.You enter the way station and it seems this area has all kinds of imps, big imps, imps with long, forked tongues, and even imps with big horns like you milling about. There are even a few bigger Devils here.You know this place goes to earth... but how are you going to get there?You see a hazy gate hewn from solid stone and what looks like a waiting room.What do?
>>26476419I'm going to play off of Dante with a couple other things thrown in...>>26476462You're yet to see any.
Rolled 15>>26476448you mean there are several hells connected to each other and there are bigger hells, and smaller hells and there is the biggest of them all which is inhabitated with most of the larvas?
Rolled 8>>26476490Bum rush the gate, when it opens.
>>26476490Any receptionists we can talk to, ask questions about, flirt and get slapped by and gain missions from?
>>26476490Start a conversation with another smart imp.
Rolled 91>>26476515Exactly. As for the tortured souls, we call them anons.>>26476490Ask somebody how can we get to earth.
Rolled 43>>26476490Oh well, we need to go to a waiting room to find out if it leads to Mortal Realm or not. Probably we nee to ask someone.
Rolled 53>>26476553Rolling for this, let's ask one of the other big horn imps.
Rolled 71>>26476553Isnt it a little early? We are going to get stomped.
>>26476490Ask nicely how to get to earth.
>>26476667Hey, asking how doesn't mean doing it right now. I, too, think it's too soon.Also, I'll be going now. Hope this continues, OP, looks promising.
>>26476490You look around and see one or two smart imps milling about in the waiting room and cautiously approach one."Oi, how exactly do I get to the mortal world? The gate?" you ask him.He looks at you with half-lidded eyes and makes a hmm in the back of his throat. "You must be new here," he hmms again, "Tell you what, I'll fill you in with the grand tour for, oh, three of your power. A good deal, yes?" The other smart imp notes the reaction on your face and retorts with, "Or you can figure it out yourself.""TWO powah!" another imp chimes in, an imp not big of powr or with particularly long horns, but you see the long forked tongue flick out of his mouth repeatedly, "Jus' TWO, an I show you eeeeverything!"What do?
>>26476707*an imp not of big body or...Friggin typo. -___-
Rolled 26>>26476707The smart guy will try and outfox us, and the guileful one will probably do the same. Let's find one of the big demons and buddy up with him for the journey to Earth.
Rolled 54>>26476707We don't want to loose our precious power. We head back to the house of wisdom to find work.
>>26476707Figure it out by watching others leave, paying others is a sucker's game.
>>26476707"fuck off ya gits i can read a scroll later"Lets go fuck about in the barracks
Rolled 99>>26476707beat the shit out of fork-tongued freak and ask him how to get to Mortal world then.
Rolled 74>>26476776Damn, forgot to roll.
Rolled 95I say hit the barracks, see if we can learn something useful there.
>>26476707Fuck those guys, they can go choke on holy water.I say we head back and try to find more work, maybe someone has use for an imp who can burn stuff?
>>26476830>I say we head back and try to find more work, maybe someone has use for an imp who can burn stuff?But this is hell... isn't everything already on fire?
Rolled 47>>26476791I think I need to change mine to this one...
Rolled 46>>26476822Rerolling for this. Don't want to cause a big imp brawl [Spoiler]do we?[/Spoiler]
i always liked imps. little evil fuckers seem lovable to me. i am gonna read and catch up, hope this turns out good.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxJrjV4PNXA
>>26476873Yeah but like, we can set it on fire EVEN MORE!Just think of the possibilities!
Seems like the consensus is waiting to see what happens and then going to see what was up with the barracks.>>26476707You scoff at the idea of giving up your precious power for something that you should totally be able to figure out on your own.You sit... and sit... and sit... Wow, this is taking a long time. Or is it? There's no sun here, no night. Time's hard to keep.Finally, you see three, bigger, apelike Imps with horns smaller than yours push through the crowd. they were half again as big as most of the imps in here. Suddenly, the stone gate opened up a hazy image that you instinctively recognize as the mortal world. A chilly breeze sweeps through. Brrr, it's a lot colder than Hell.The three ape-like imps and a larger devil all barrel through, and you see them turn into a fine mist on the other side and scatter in different directions. Looks like you don't stay fully corporeal in their world...Is that it? You see a few other imps waiting in the waiting room. Eventually, a small portal opens up and swallows that forked tongue imp that had tried to undercut the other imp selling you information. That targeted just him though.Hmmm....Well, with no one to tell you what this means, you'll have to figure it out later.Flying back to the barracks, you peeeek inside only to see several soldiers carrying armors and weapons, and bossing imps around. The imps seem to be folding things, helping the much, much bigger Hell Soldiers, six or seven times as tall as any imp you've seen, don their equipment. Some imps are even fighting one another for the Soldier's amusement.>What do?
Rolled 20>>26476896why not brawl>>26477036I don't think it works like that
>>26477092My name keeps getting turned off. Maybe I should turn off my cookie autopurge.
Rolled 42>>26477092Steal weapons and armor.
Rolled 51>>26477092Try to analyse how the imps fight.>>26477126Or whitelist 4chan
Rolled 54>>26477092Dear Satan can we already slap someone? I guess we can so we are going to fight random imp.
Rolled 23>>26477092Watch the imps fight and look for weaknesses you can exploit.
>>26477217thisAlso OP this is a cool quest.
Rolled 34>>26477276fucked up roll
>>26477092You watch the other imps fight for a while. It looks like the current champ of one ring is a brawny imp that overcompensates with his left side, but his brawn makes it so that he's tough for other, less brawny imps to exploit, or so it seems. Perhaps you could? The floor seems to be made out of some sort of black wood...Also, the soldiers and even some of the imps seem to be placing wagers on who will win or lose. One fork-tongued imp seems to be the bookie. They're clearly betting Power.What do?
Rolled 23>>26477276Really. It feels like pokemon or something, and I like the writing style. Actually it reminds me of the Bartimaeus trilogy, right down to eating other daemons and replenishing your essence.
>>26477276Thanks. I hope to keep this fun and progress this over the course of several quests if I can. :D
>>26477343bet 5 power on ourself
>>26477343Find the second or third strongest imp, tell him about the weakness, and bet on him in the next fight
Rolled 2>>26477343Bet 2 power that we will win, and fight the camp.
>>26477343find a brawny imp and teach him the current champions weakness. train him then bet some power on him
Rolled 24>>264773431)Place bet on self2) Set fire to the floor as a distraction3) Dive through fire for suprise4)Exploit his weakness
Rolled 85>>26477343ask someone on how we can participate. When we do, bet 1 power and go.
Rolled 74>>26477390I reroll for this great idea.
Rolled 62>>26477390Betting 5 power on this post, let's go!
Rolled 55>>26477387>>26477390Yeah bet on self
Looks like >>26477390 has the most support.>writing
>>26477343Find brawny imp, explain champs weakness to imp, bet power on said imp. I don't think we could fuck up the champ with our 5 strength but stranger things have happened I guess.
>>26477451You look and watch, and you have to fight to keep down the most [i]devious[/i] little smile from splitting your tiny little face. And you step forward asking to participate in the next fight. The current champ, a brawny imp, looks almost incredulously and begins the laughing, jeering, and taunting appropriate of the current leader in the polls.Some of the Soldiers look intrigued and it's estimated that, 5:1 you lose. They don't think you can do it, it seems. The bookie collects bets, some smaller imps regurgitating power gems and handing them over, looking to make some easy power off of your defeat. The soldiers pass around much larger sums in the form of larger and much brighter power gems they pull out of themselves... enough to make your greedy little imp eyes bulge and your mouth salivate.... that's a lot of power.Eventually, you place your measily 5 power bet and move into position. The reigning champ is much bigger than you, probably growing fat by betting on himself.Getting into postion, you wait for him to lunge at you, and lunge he does. Stooping down, you place your hands on the floor and set it on fire! A small flame bubbles up and seperates you and the bigger imp... of course you devils don't have to worry about mundane fire.Diving through the fire and smoke, you attempt to gore his exposed left side!>Opposed Roll, 1d100+5. Lets see if you can beat his check.

Rolled 29>>26477588Time for a nat 1, not like it matters since we're already rolling 45~But then again you just need to BELIEVE!
Rolled 58>>26477653You go get 'em /b/ro!
Rolled 29 + 5>>26477588
Rolled 70 + 5>>26477588It's GORE TIME
>>26477670and /b/ has entered the thread
Rolled 59>>26477710I've been here from the start... check the name
>>26477588The brawny imp sees you and attempts to give a retaliatory strike, but he's too late. Your horns sneak up under his guard and gore him right in the side. Wrapping your arms around him, you manage to take him down and deliver a savage clawing while he's got your large horns stuck in his rib cage.Withdrawing your horns, you see that he's unable to get up. It seems you hit something important. You are declared the winner!You receive 25 power, with a net of 20.Total Power: 30What do?
Rolled 89>>26477748To the house of Wisdom! Read all the scrolls we can!
Rolled 68>>26477748back to the robed lads for that scroll
Rolled 2>>26477748Run before we get robbed a read a new scroll
Rolled 1>>26477748To the hall of knowledge for more magic!
>>26477748eat that fucker, no mercy
Rolled 74>>26477748Considering we probably impressed the guards, let's talk them up and see what we can learn. Alternatively, we can go check out that Power-17 scroll and see if there's a more powerful one to open too.
>>26477748Gloat like a motherfucker, then head back and see just how many scrolls we can open with this newfound power. If it continues like this we'll be in the mortal plane soon enough.Also, you might want to put a roll or time limit on rolls since otherwise there'll just be a million rolls until someone beats it.
>>26477748i agree with >>26477783
Rolled 99>>26477801I change to this. Eat it! We loves it.
Rolled 54>>264778583 times 99 so far... Oh well, I think we should eat the fucker AND learn new spell in a library.
>>26477748You quickly swallow your winnings and power up before scampering off. No need to test fate, and besides, you have scrolls to read. Perhaps you can game the system some other time.At the house of wisdom, you head back to the low power scrolls section and you see the #17 scroll. Oh how delicious. You rush over and pop that fucker open immediately to gain its contents. The scroll has another simple spell within it.Power Meter: For no power, this spell reveals whether a demon has more power than you, less, or the same. For 1 power, it reveals the exact count rounded off to the nearest thousand. For 2, to the nearest hundred... etc.A larger, robed devil with a hideously long, twisted set of four horns turns out to be standing behind you. You whip around and look up. He does not look amused."You may be of sufficient power to read those, but you are yet to pay tribute to the House of Wisdom."Well... shit.For your exploits today, you have gained +1 str and +1 int, totaling you up at...strength 6smarts 12guile 5Spells known: burning touch, power meter.You guys want to continue?
Rolled 77>>26477951I want to go on!
Rolled 13>>26477951yeah sure
>>26477951We must outsmart the robed acolyte.[CONTINUE]
Rolled 62>>26477951I've got nothing better to do tonight.Also I say we run away from the devil, and not pay his stupid toll if we don't have to.
Alright guys, you've got a big robed devil with big horns who seems a little peeved at you. What do?
Rolled 73>>26478016We ask how much?
Rolled 74>>26478016Ask him about what kind of tribute is required.
>>26478016find out what does this fucker want?
Rolled 55>>26477951Tell him we already paid. Look as devilishly honest as possible. also free power level check, he could be a wimp in disguise.
Rolled 82>>26478082this is a good idea
>>26478016Check his power level. Who the fuck is this guy, anyway? We have innate knowledge of this place, do we know anything about paying tribute? He might just be an asshole looking to get some free power off a lesser being.
Rolled 88>>26478004>>26478006>>26478052>chose a smart Imp >not paying tribute to the one place we'll be coming back to foreverle shiggy donatello Seconding >>26478041 , let's pay that tribute and learn more about the House of Wisdom/human world.
Rolled 71>>26478138We could be getting gypped, we don't know if this toll is real or not.
>>26477951You eyeball up the bigger devil and his set of horns. Power check... Yep, he's definitely higher than you. By how much, you can't tell. There are a few things you can do though. Thinking about it, you know that it is probably customary to work here before drawing from the library, but you hope beyond hope he doesn't want your precious power.>Lie (1d100+5) versus big devil's 1d100+int>Abort.>Ask about tribute
>>26478171ask about tribute
Rolled 19>>26478171Ask about the tribute.
Rolled 56>>26478171probably just ask about the tribute
Rolled 98>>26478171Ask about tribute,See if we can work our tribute instead of paying glorious POWAH.
Rolled 76>>26478215...and ask this guy more about Mortal world and how to live a live of Imp.
>>26478171"What tribute?" you inquire, knowing that you shouldn't tangle with this guy... better to work a little than to get squished, right? You can't help but fear the loss of your power gems, but this feat goes away when the greater devil responds."We couldn't possibly gain any sort of power of worth from the likes of you," he said- oh dear he knew what you were thinking- "You will work, you will provide your services to those who need them. One day, one scroll. got it?"Well you do have literally all of eternity... What do?
Rolled 78>>26478169By the size of his horns, he's gotta be in the 10,000+ power at least, not going to waste time with small fries. >>26478171Ask about that tribute.
>>26478254Oh sorry, random. I missed that. I'll incorporate that into the next post.
would you guys be kind enough to turn off your dices as long as op doesnt ask for a roll? and op you should consider asking for a roll only when an action requiring dc is decided upon. rolls get messy, its kin of annoying and it lowers thread quality.
Rolled 96>>26478267Feeling happy we wont stop our plan to take over this place we ask for work!
>>26478267Lets do some stuff here. (Pay the tribute)
>>26478281Horns seem to correspond to smarts and not power, though. Which makes sense considering it's a library demon.
Rolled 7>>26478267Let's get to work!
>>26478295Yeah, sorry. >>26478311True, but the dude has four of them. I figure we learn now instead of having to lie every day, risking getting fried or kicked out.
>>26478267"one day one scroll seems acceptable, but i dont work for free. me need gemz for it if i am to work.
>>26478267Work, maybe there will be some extra power to take.
>>26478267Rolling up your non-existant sleeves, you agree. "Alright. I'll work!"The library devil looks down at you with a half-interested scrutiny before dumping a heavy tome into your arms. "Start with that, you will put that where it belongs, using the number system. Report back for new orders." He turns and leaves, leaving you to do your thing.>Work like a good little imp.>Sneak away>try to steal some power from casters while you work>other
>>26478348Your gem is Scrolls, that is fair enough. Work, work, work.
>>26478376>try to steal some power from casters while you workwe are gonna be walking along them busy, gather what you can along the way.
>>26478376Be a good little impA good impression makes for dumb superiors
>>26478390it is never good enough for me.
>over 200 replies>0 images
>>26478376Hard workwork. Try to gain some extra power as you work.
>>26478376Steal power while we work.
Forgot to ask for a 1d100 roll for the power drainage.>_>
DC ... 50 You've got eyes on you this time.
Rolled 40>>26478470Do we plus any smarts?
>>26478460this way we dont get unnecessary rolls on voting, so its all the better.
>>26478376 You work all day... no sleep. It looks like you don't need to sleep, but you do manage to steal a nifty +5 power throughout that long day. However, the library devils have the audacity to tell you that that day was for the scroll you already took! Well jeeze. However now that you're up front, you see that there is a subject and title directory at the front.>What do
Rolled 27>>26478470Show me the power!
>>26478532You're at 35 now.
>>26478516look up "house of wisdom", "mortal world", "power", "magic"
>>26478516We look if there are any Tomes we can open.
>>26478516get another scroll anywaysfuck them
Rolled 64>>26478516Same thing, Work and steal power.
>>26478516Look up how to get to the mortal world, continue working offf our debt, continue being a right cheeky bastard stealing whatever we can.
>>26478554 This knowledge isn't power but still good in this case.
Rolled 48>>26478470Alright, rolling big to bring up the average.
>>26478516why don't withit imp-fights again?
Lets try our hand in the mortal world
>>26478516Check out the coliseum soon. After we have stole another scroll.
>>26478516You work one more day, stealing power as you go. There aren't as many caster and still as many other imps siphoning off magic to feul their own lust for power, so you're only able to net +3 power today. Going to the front, you request for tomes relating to the Mortal World, the nature of Powr, and Magic. The Librarian, quite bored, sizes you up, likely using Power Meter to measure your strength, and says "Number thirty-two," and goes back to what he was doing. With the convenient number system, you head off to find number 32. It's a treatise on on Hell's quest to gather Power. Power makes you stronger, causes you to metamorphos into greater manifestations of darkness, can be burned to +1 your stats, and fuels magics most foul. Power can be spent and is the currency of hell when raw labor isn't called for. MOst importantly, power is generated when humans sin and souls are stolen, and it is thus every Devil's job to pervert the mortal world. Even animals are on the menu, although humans are the race that Devils most prefer to contaminate.Your reading is interrupted by a loud, booming, echo, welling up from beneath your feet from the deepest recesses of Hell, a horn. You feel yourself pulled to it, and without a second thought, you're off like a gunshot towards the source. You fly out of the House of Wisdom and down to the next lowest plane of hell, seeing the scenery change from a rockyplace to a disgusting, imp-knee deep pile of putrid waters where you see some squabbling forms in the distance... although they're of no interest, your attention is drawn to that noise. You're there with many other imps. There's an announcement by a very,very, big Devil in ornate armor. He's big, brawney, and has a long forked tongue that flicks out and nearly reaches his waste."Boys. It's time to talk about your Sin Quota."TO BE CONTINUED.:DUpdates on future quests will be announced here: https://twitter.com/TheHypnoJew/ THANKS FOR PLAYING!
>>26478845Thanks for hosting!
>>26478845Good quest boss.
>>26478845That was awesome!
>>26478845Damn it! Why every quest I take an interest finishes right went I catch up?
>>26478889>>26478895>>26478936Thanks guys. Archive here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/26473817/.
>>26478947Don't worry. It'll continue.
>>26478845>Even animals are on the menu> you're not sure you could actually possess anything stronger than a grasshopperpossess grasshopers. go rub other grasshopers. start unexpected and untimely swarm in africa. swarm ruins crops. at least thousands of people die. THOUSANDS PWAHH MORPHSMOSOS INTO EVIL-ER THINGZZ.
>>26478978At power level 3, we are 37 now I think
>>26474402That implies Cherubim are small.They are not the little cupids you see painted on church walls.
>>26479095they are in a setting if the creater makes them so.
