Worlds collide and clash, as doors open and energy floods in, all with one destination. Forces beyond sight smash together and impact with shattering explosions. Two grand armies match up against their counterpart, one of the abyss and one of existence. And into this, a change is about to occur, something to shift the balance.You are… Well you’re still not entirely sure who you are. You’re a roughly 25 year old human male, that much you know. Beyond that? You’re only starting to remember your past. You know that you come from an urbanised world with a number of distinct nations spread across its face and no space colonies as well as a name - Varytita, one that you have decided to keep for now.One thing that you do know now with certainty is that you, or We, are what is known as a Spirit Pair - two souls sharing a single physical frame that allows the two of you to use all the powers you both possess. You also discovered who your spirit pair was - due to a crit success on the roll, it is Tiamat, the Gravitic Draconus.One pretty surreal day later involving transforming Liches, Satan, Mario, one of the most powerful beings in existence, some serious injuries, dealing some serious injuries, some momentary losing the grip on “reality”, aforementioned Mario suplexing and then running over a Ghorgon with a Mario Kart, you have found yourself talking to a vampire introducing himself as Abhorash.
Current Abilities (Minora level):Strength (Physical Power): **Durability (Not Giving a Fuck): *Speed (Gotta Go Fast): **Senses (Eye Spy): *Elemental Abilities (Gravity): **Control (That Was Intentional, I swear!): **Synchronisation (The Blank Space): ****Transformation ++: Transforms your frame into an androgynous human dragon hybrid (removing clothes) possessing far greater strength, durability and speed than it would appear possible for a roughly man sized individual. Add three to Strength, Durability and Speed for parts transformed. Full body transformation is possible and advised for nastier fights.Draconic Flight ++: When your torso is transformed, you gain a pair of wings that are more than capable of launching you into the air and a tail to help you direct yourself. The tail and wings are both more than capable of smacking things around. You seem to remember being better at this.Draconic Senses +: When your head is transformed, you can take use of a Dragon’s senses, which are superior to a humans. Add one to senses when transformed. These can be improved by further focus or specifically added to the human frame. You still are unused to these senses most basic level and cannot tap further into them.Disintegration breath +: A technique that forcibly moves atoms away from each other when struck by this energy, blasting the affected apart at a molecular level. Using this technique will require a backlash roll. It is small and lacks focus, but is definitely potent.Regeneration +: Over time, you will regenerate from damage. It won’t save you an arm, but it’ll recover most light injuries. You get the feeling that this ability is a lot weaker than it once was.Memory Rush: Over time, your memories and Tiamat’s regarding you will return. This will lead to knowledge and improved abilities as you remember who you once were and how you could fight. Major events, triggers or massive damage may accelerate this process.
Murdering stuff of at least a certain power level will give you Anima. Anima can be spent to improve abilities or improve your frame. 100 Anima is required to improve an ability from + or * to ++ or ** respectively, doubling in requirement each time you want to improve one. Once you hit a certain point, you will improve in rank, gaining relative stat boosts around the board but the level of abilities you have will remain the same, only they will be objectively better.Current Anima: 50http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=two+souls+questFor the prior threadshttps://twitter.com/Mirage4343 For the Twitter feed for the questRolls will be a DC system in divisions of 5 using the D100, taking the best of the first three for the most part. Alternative systems may arise as time goes on, but we’ll see.
You roll out of bed and begin transforming as you dash at the vampire, who begins turning, his look of surprise changing to one of cool focus. As you reach him, around 3/4 transformed, he calmly reaches out, catches your arm as you swing at him and holds you there. You blast out with repelling gravitic energies, blasting furnishings away. His grip doesn't loosen as he casually throws you to the back of the room again. Before you attempt to rise, now fully transformed, he's directly in front of you. "I see no reason for you to attack the one who healed you of your poison and is fighting for the same goals as the Bretonnians you met earlier. Gawain gave me an impressive accounting of your battle prowess. Now, kindly stop struggling and listen to me.""My name is Abhorash."What do?>Why am I here?>How long was I out?>What happened to me?>Tiamat, what's going on?>Other (write in)
>>41612774>Tiamat, what's going on?>Who are you?
>>41612774>>Tiamat, what's going on?>>Who are you?
>>41613633good to see you cell anon.i'll keep this up for a bit longer.If no other responses come through before the hour after the post, i'll let the thread drop.
>>41613769You seem sad mirage.Im sorry to hear that, if its any consolation im sorry for the timezone issues but mainly i- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULjCSK0oOlI
>>41613882its sad when you just wanna quest but no one wants to join
>>41612774>Tiamat, what's going on?Saw the thread up on twitter.
>>41614008and a saviour arrives.going with >Tiamat, what's going on?finally writing
>>41614032Fuck yeah let's get this show on the road
>Tiamat, what's going on?You quickly quiz Tiamat on what is happening. "I do not know what happened to We, I was under the same poisonous influence as you were the entire time. If I had to conjecture, this Vampire has removed the poison from Our frame. For what reason, I do not know, but I detect nothing vampiric in Our system. It is entirely possible his motives are pure."With that in mind,>Who are you?You ask the vampire exactly who he is. You know his name but not what that name means. The vampire nods somewhat wisely, a sharp little jerking motion while maintaining eye contact. "An excellent question. I am, as I mentioned, Abhorash. I am the first of the Blood Dragons, the caste of Vampires that quest to cure their thirst. I was the first to achieve this feat and as a result, I am the head of the bloodline and greatest of their number. I came here with the others of my kind that escaped the Blood God's influence to defend this monastery against the End Times.""Now it is my turn to ask you a question. Specifically two.""What are you, and why are you here? I couldn't find anything on or within you that identified you and my magical senses are dulled looking at you."What do? How do we respond?you can tell him either 1) the whole truth2) some of the truth (write in) or3) lie (write in)for both of the questions.
>>41614250>some of the truth (write in) orWe're a force attracted here by the conflict.We're fighting against the destruction of the universe, and by extension, this world.
>>41614250>1 the whole truthWE ARE THE LIGHT OF THE TRUTH, WE STAND FOR TRUTH AND MORE TRUTH, AND TRUTH!So we just tell random strangers about our space time travel multiverse missions like it's a casual thing. Because truth. No i'm not being weird because i'm tired.
>>416142501) the whole truthhe's a dragon, we're a dragon-y thing, whats not to trust?

just before I write this next one, i've just got something quick to say.Sargeras, DarkTart, Thane, CellAnon (when you're here), you guys have been the real players of this quest. I wanted to say thanks to you guys for this.I was thinking of shifting things up slightly. Instead of running as a quest, I was thinking of maybe doing a party based thing. So if you guys were at all interested, would you guys be willing to do a RPG style version of this set in the same setting of Eris with each of you guys controlling your own characters? A more personal game type.what do you guys think? Are you at all interested? Post a response if you have any thoughts
>>41614997Sure I'm game, I have so much free time right now I don't know what to do with myself.If you wanna do something ala roll20, I'm up for it.
>>41615144that's me btw, handle fell off, was posting in another quest
>>41615144i've never actually used Roll20, but it shouldn't be too hard to pick up. But yes, I think that's pretty much it.
if you're interested, could you flick me your skype name or something? so we can talk about it, maybe set up a session?
>>41614997I...er... it could be really cool but...The problem is a problem encountered by most game groups.Everyone being available.I would like an rpg version of the setting with multiple players sure, but it might be best to do it as a spinoff of your own main series.I mean if you wan't to incorporate this into your main quest as an interactive thing then sure im down for it, just hope some common problems won't ruin everything.
>>41615253well that's true, it is a common problem.But we do seem to have a relatively common point.This time block here: Sunday morning for me, Saturday night for USA people. And we can discover others.We can have it as a spinoff, or it can be something entirely separate, i dunno
>>41615298I mean, shit it doesn't even have to be roll20, we could go over to Anonkun and set up over there. Maybe get more people interested, I'm just throwing out ideas.I may get my drother to join up, but he has time commitment issues with being a shift manager with his job.
so, CellAnon, are you at all interested, or not?
>>41615298I don't have a skype btw, i will eventually.For now i will Send you my email via your ask page so it is only visible by you as long as you don't respond to the 'question'. You send messages through that and we could talk until i get a skype. Also update incoming?
>>41615645yah, writing it now
>>41615605And yes, i am interested if you were still wondering.
>1) Tell the whole truth>90You decide to tell the entire truth to the Vampire. You get the feeling that lying to this guy would be extremely hard, as he's already stated that he has magical abilities and has moved quicker than you can match on several occasions already. So you begin divulging information>90You can feel that Tiamat is in agreement with you on this point as you tell him about the nature of the universes, Eris, yourself as a former Ultimate Spirit who's memories were wiped, the forces at play, and why you are here; to gather forces.>90He believes you completely, you can tell. That kind of expression is impossible to miss. It's the expression of a man who is now reconciling this new information with what he knows of the world and realising that it fits. The Vampire shakes his head and chuckles. "Well, this is a revelation. It all makes sense, now that I think about it. I guess that there is much that is not seen in this world. Or should I say universe, one of many? Either way, it is clear why you are here, and i will assist you for now.""This monastery is a place of great power and it drew both myself and my other companion here along with our respective followers. I would think that we should be of assistance in your Ancient Battle but we require assistance."Abhorash looks you square in the eye again."Help us keep this monastery intact for a few more days to gain enough power, and we will join you. It will allow us to escape the end times, and will give you a considerable fighting boost."What do?>Thanks, how can I help?>What's the catch?>How long is a few days?>Who is your companion?>What are we dealing with here?
>>41615987>What are we dealing with here?>How long is a few days?We're probably helping him
>>41615987>>41615987>What are we dealing with here?
>>41615987>What's the catch?>What are we dealing with here?>How long is a few days?What ever happened to Mario anyhow?
>>41616346excellent question CellAnon>>41616080>>41616185>>41616346seems consensus is to ask a billion questionswriting~
>>41616401the new technique, billion question!
You begin peppering Abhorash with questions>How long is a few days?"I don't entirely know. It depends on how quickly we are able to enact our plan. Your addition alters the plan somewhat.">What are we dealing with here?"The forces of Chaos are here, a bastard army mixed of many different kinds of chaotic creatures. However, with what you have explained of the Null, I cannot help but somewhat suspect that there may be something more at play here. There have been rumours of an extremely powerful Shadow mage in their ranks, far more powerful than usual.""Now, if you have no more questions, shall we be off? Your short friend has been most helpful at holding the wall."Wait What?What do?>Charge out, Mario's not meant for fighting that much>Go with Abhorash, he'll explain the situation more, you hope>Go straight through the wall. Fuck subtlety with a ten foot pole.>Other (Write in)
>>41616530>Go with Abhorash, he'll explain the situation more, you hope
>>41616530>Go with Abhorash, he'll explain the situation more, you hopeBut if based Mario turns out to be in trouble,>Charge out, Mario's not meant for fighting that much
>>41616617btw CellAnon, I sent you an email
Just throwing in here, if you do decide to run this as a campaign with those guys, will you keep a running log of the story or something?I try to participate whenever I can, and am interested in the story, but I keep odd hours.
>>41616784I may keep a running log of the story, maybe post it up here. It depends on how interested people are. What do you mean by "odd hours"?>>41616803>>41616762>>41616560>>41616617so the call is for going out at a more sedate pacewriting ~
>>41616868My work schedule varies daily. Hard to commit to anything.Not that I want you to run your quest on my hours or anything, I just wanted to let you know there was someone else out there reading your quest.
>>41616743 Yes. Plans shall be made. You will now all go back up and rewatch Paul Simon.
>Go with Abhorash, he'll explain the situation more, you hopeRestraining your urge to simply smash your way outside and rescue Mario, you simply walk for the door, Abhorash falling in next to you. As you walk through the corridors, Abhorash speaks up again. "As you're probably wondering, this place has been under siege for a week or so now, ever since you came in here. We've been fighting off waves of invaders ever since, especially Beastmen."...So wait, you've been unconscious for a week? Jesus, that's a long time to be unconscious for one like you."We've held them off mostly for now, but it's a close run thing. We're only holding on because of the Blessed Statues that my partner brought here which is preventing the Daemons from just warping in on top of us, but there have been a number of waves of attackers and it's getting hairy."As you round the corner, the Vampire finishes his statement to a truly spectacular sight. "That Mario person has been of extreme use here."You can only watch, thunderstruck kek as you behold the scene before you, as Mario leaps across the courtyard in a single bound, fists ablaze as he mashes a satyr looking thing into paste, a savage war cry echoing from his throat. His lab coat is tattered and bashed in multiple places, but the man himself seems to be untouchable, only a few scrapes and bruises visible on him. As he is rushed by another group of the things, he ducks and whirls under their great axes before smashing their chests in with thunderous blows. As a number of skaven swarm towards him, he raises a hand and a large go kart screams out of nowhere to splat a large number of them into giblets with a single firespinning drift before disappearing again."ANY MORE OF YOUA MONGREL BASTARDS TO FIGHTA ME?!?" He screams at them as the skaven retreat from his roaring figure.Son of a Bitch.Mario's toughened up.What do?>Maximum aggress, show no mercy>Fight side by side with Dr. Mario>Other (write in)
>>41617173>>Fight side by side with Dr. MarioSynergy!Aggressive, ruthless, slaughtering synergy.
>>41617173>>Maximum aggress, show no mercyfuck it.
>>41617173Fight with Mario.
>>41617173>Fight side by side with Dr. Mario
>>41615240eyekenseegot caught up with other things. I am all for it.
>>41617252>>41617228>>41617212>>41617236a bit of a split, but Mario.writing ~
>Fight side by side with Dr. MarioYou begin laughing as you run forward, your transformation rippling down your frame as scales cover you. Laughter for the new strength Mario has found. Laughter for the insane situation that you have found yourself in. Laughter simply at the world for throwing you into this and giving you a partner in this insanity. You laugh as you fall in next to Mario, now fully transformed, and fight. You lose yourself in the battle, spinning and soaring over Mario's head, cutting and slicing at those that threaten him while he wades through the front lines. You are dimly aware of the other Knights around you, both vampiric and otherwise, the non vampires faintly shining even in the light. Bolts of fire and lightning arc around Mario as you thrust out with Gravitic energies, flattening foes and sending them floating helplessly upwards where claws or flaming fists end them. You duck under a punch of Mario's that smashes through the chest of a Gor and, still laughing, you lash out with your wings and tail, crushing the throats of three more. As Mario unleashes a fireball that would have missed, you curve it straight into their path with your gravity, blasting them with flame and incinerating a skaven weapons team.You fight together with Mario for some time, cutting and slicing, smashing and burning.And the laughter only dies down once you're finished.What do?>Ask Mario how he's been, compliment him on his strength.>Quiz Abhorash on what happens now.>Fly up and have a look at the surroundings yourself>Other (write in)
>>41617615and forgot pic
>>41617615>Ask Mario how he's been, compliment him on his strength.>Fly up and have a look at the surroundings yourself

>>41617615>>Ask Mario how he's been, compliment him on his strength.>>Quiz Abhorash on what happens now.>>Fly up and have a look at the surroundings yourselfAll the things?
>>41617822>>41617772>>41617746>>41617729Well, the call is to be a good conversationalist.writing ~probably last one here for now, shifting to the roll20 only afterwards
>Ask Mario how he's been, compliment him on his strength.You turn to Mario and allow your transformation to drop, the black scales rippling back into your skin and clothes. As you do so you ask him how he's been since you dropped out of it. As you do so, however, he looks at you square and runs straight at you, before giving you a hug around the middle."Ia don't want toa lost my only friend here. Don'ta do that again."You are stunned for a few seconds. This likely thousands of years old man is hugging you around the middle while calling you his only friend! How do you respond to that? After a few hesitant seconds, you return the embrace. You slowly peel him off of you and ask him again what has happened. "Well, ever since wea brought you here, we've beena fighting off these things constantly. I've had to do a lot of the fighting, becausea I regenerate so fast. So i've been fighting non-stop for days."You compliment him on his newfound battle prowess, which he seems incredibly pleased about. Shortly afterwards, you fly up to get a grasp on the surroundings. What you see is grim. You're currently surrounded by a ring of monsters of all races, Beastmen, Massive warriors in plate armour, more Skaven and what you can only assume to be the Daemons that Abhorash was talking about earlier. There isn't a single break in the line as they stare forward at you and the monastery. They must have thousands and thousands of them. Further away, with your enhanced senses you can see a few encampments, although what alignment you cannot tell, you still cannot make the best use of your senses.As you land, Abhorash approaches and you immediately ask him what the plan is."It is simple, Dragon.""We need to get back the Goblet."
>>41618195Alright, that'll be it for today, good enough place to stop. I'll be on next weekend at the same time, hopefully, see you all there.As always, if you have any questions, now's the time to ask or you can ask at my twitter feed or ask.fm account.https://twitter.com/Mirage4343 http://ask.fm/Mirage4343see you next time!
